According to a study conducted by Chemical Safe Skincare Research in 2006, the average woman absorbs more than five pounds of toxins from her bath, body and skin care products every single year. The effect that five pounds of toxic material has on your body is hard to estimate, but many of the toxic chemicals used in body care products are known endocrine disruptors, reproductive hormonal disruptors, allergens, gene modifiers, and more. Some of these chemicals have an indefinite after life in the body, meaning the body has no effective means of eliminating these synthetic toxins and the toxic residues remain in body tissues for decades. The prolonged exposure to chemicals which the body cannot effectively eliminate has never been thoroughly studied, but this exposure is expected to be partially to blame to the increasing rise in allergies, autoimmune disorders, and other health problems. Using toxin-free products on our skin and hair is obviously very important.

Safety is of utmost importance when we craft our skincare formulations. We are focused on sourcing clean, non-toxic ingredients for all of our products. The following is a summary of harmful ingredients we exclude:

NO Petrochemicals (including paraffin, petrolatum & mineral oils)

NO Parabens – petrochemicals that are estrogenic, carcinogenic & allergenic

NO Artificial Colorants

NO Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfates

NO Animal Testing

NO Triclosan – found in a lot of antimicrobial soaps and toothpaste products, it can react with chlorine in the tap water to create chloroform.

NO DMDM Hydantoin/Diazonial Urea – strong irritant, releases formaldehyde, toxic


NO TEA, DEA, MEA – chemical used as a thickening agent in cosmetics, highly toxic to the skin, immune & respiratory systems

NO Benzoyl Peroxide – chemical bleaching agent used in acne treatments, bar soap, facial cleansers, hair dyes & food additives; highly toxic & irritating to the skin

NO Dioxin – powerful hormone disrupting chemical linked to cancer, nervous system disorders, miscarriages & birth deformity. stored in fat cells, contained in sulfates that provide foaming action

NO Phthalates

NO Methylisothiazolineone – strong chemical substance used as a preservative in many skin care products. It has been shown to cause allergic reactions.
