Chemicals & Skin Care June 19, 2015 14:58 4 Comments
People are looking for safer, more natural skin care products, but there is a lot of confusion about what "natural" actually means. The word "natural" is on labels everywhere, yet there is no regulated definition. The U.S. government does not require health studies or pre-market testing for personal care products so there are many non-natural components and processes in most U.S. body care products. Even those labeled "natural" may contain harsh preservatives or ingredients.
Preservatives are necessary in most body and skin care products, especially products that contain water, and we know that preservatives and chemicals such as parabens, polypropylene and polyethylene glycols, sodium lauryl and laureth sulfates are not only bad for our body but also for our environment because the body care products that everyone uses eventually go down the drain and into our environment.
Fragrance is a word found on many products that claim to be natural, the fact is most fragrance is man made to mimic the the smell of something else. Fragrance oils should be naturally derived, if it is not, it shouldn't be used on your body. When looking for a special scent or aroma it's best to use products that contain Essential Oils. Essential oils are not only good for the skin but may have aromatherapy benefits, as well.
All of our products are made with ingredients that actually nourish your skin and body. We use no water in any of our skin care products so we don't need preservatives. All of our products have a shelf life of approximately 8 months to a year.
Our goal is to be the go-to place for the highest-quality, natural skin care products.
