No Harsh Chemical Ingredients
Take a deep breath when you read this:
- There are over 10,000 industrial chemicals in common skin care products.
- The average American adult is exposed to 168 hazardous chemicals each day. Unfortunately there are no statistics for the UK but we reckon it will be similar.
- Everything applied to the skin, be it lip stick or deodorant, sun block or general skin care products are absorbed by the body, just like they’ve been eaten.
What you put on your body goes in your body, therefore our products contain no Parabens, Dioxane, Mineral Oils, Propylene Glycol, Synthetic Fragrances, Lanolin, Phthalates, Triethanolamine or Harsh Sulphates.
Unlike natural ingredients these synthetic ingredients have an adverse effect on your skin.
Mineral oils (Paraffinum Liquidum & Petrolatum Liquidum), for example, cause premature ageing since they do not allow your skin to absorb nutrients or to breathe.
Your skin needs nutrients to prevent premature ageing and to keep it in good condition.
It also needs to breathe to allow unwanted toxins to be expelled. Mineral oil suffocates your skin.
Unfortunately 99% of skin care products found on the High Street contain mineral oil and these other harmful ingredients.
Natural ingredients, on the other hand, have been created by mother nature and work in harmony with your skin.
They were intended to be used to nourish, heal and protect your skin, just as fruit, nuts and other natural foods were intended to be eaten to nourish and sustain you.
All of our non-water based products are preserved naturally however we have no option but to preserve our water based products with gentle, synthetic preservatives.
Our water based products have to contain synthetic preservatives because this is the only proven safe method of preserving them.
We use synthetic preservatives in low concentrations that have a proven track record for being gentle, safe and effective.
We would not risk trying to preserve these water based products naturally as they could become contaminated with bacteria and fungus.
Some companies use beeswax to preserve their creams but we feel this makes them greasy and they do not have the proper consistency of a cream (which should be easily absorbed).
Some other companies use chemically modified preservatives that have been derived from natural ingredients however these are relatively new to the market and we feel their safety has not yet been tried and tested.
Once we feel there is a tried and tested, safe and effective natural method of preserving our water based products we will use that instead.
