We create skincare products that take the best natural ingredients and blend them into luxurious products that are gentle to use every day and appropriate for every skin type. We never use the following ingredients or additives in our products.
Parabens are synthetic preservatives commonly used in foods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics To create products with very long shelf lives. However, they also enter the body through the skin and are endocrine disruptors as they mimic hormones in the body. they have been linked to cancer and are an environmental contaminant. We use naturally derived or eco-certified preservative systems that are effective in preserving our products.
Sulfates are used as “lather agents” to make bubbles in skin and hair care products. They are known skin and eye irritants as well as an environmental contaminant. For some they can also have a very drying effect on skin and hair. Our ingredient blends are sulfate free yet deliver an luxuriously creamy foam.
Petroleum derived ingredients are pervasive in beauty products. They are commonly used in skincare products to help ‘lock in moisture’. In fact they clog skin’s pores and interfere with the body's natural moisturizing mechanism. Those ingredients can be potentially cancer causing and a leading environmental contaminant. They have been found to be irritating, sensitizing and drying on the skin.We do not use any petroleum derived ingredients in any of our products.
Many synthetic fragrances contain phthalates and petroleum derived ingredients that are believed to be endocrine disruptors, mimicking the body’s hormones and can cause skin irritations and headaches. All of our fragrances are made from 100% natural plant materials and essential oils. We do not use harsh petrochemicals to create them. The scents are captured through traditional processes such as expression, distillation, etc.
We never test on animals. Ever. Period.
