Our Claims & Why
Without the use of parabens, unnatural oils, alcohols, & artificial fragrances, it becomes simple to put your best face forward & allow the products to work for you.
Natural alcohols are classified as “good alcohols” & unnatural alcohols are classified as “bad alcohols”.” Bad Alcohols” can also be categorized as “Pure Form” alcohols which basically describes their potency. Alcohols to steer clear of in your facial care products are, SD Alcohol, Ethanol, Methanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol, and Methyl Alcohol. Short term effects of Pure Form Alcohols or “Bad Alcohols” include the ability to dehydrate the skin temporarily and often causing the skin to produce excess sebum and later acne outbreaks. Long term effects of using Pure Form Alcohols on the skin includes, making the user more vulnerable to sun damage and environmental toxins: these “Bad Alcohols” are known to breakdown or thin the skins barrier. Contrastingly, Good Alcohols including Cetyl Alcohol (classified as a lubricant and stabilizer) acts as a wax base which assists in the maintainence or improvement of the skin’s moisture barrier. Other good alcohols include Cetearyl Alcohol and Stearyl Alcohol, which can be derived from coconut oils.
Have you ever heard of Oil Pulling? Oil Pulling is an old tradition used in Ayurvedic Medicine to cleanse the body by using natural oils. Many people with excess sebum or oil production feel that they cannot use oil on their faces! Well fear no more, natural oils such as Jojoba oil (pronounced hu-ho-bah) are very similar to human sebum. When applying natural oils to the skin dry, chapped skin becomes nourished and hydrated and oily skin becomes confused and stops producing excess sebum. In short, regardless of your skin type, your skin reaches equilibrium in pH all thanks to natural oils!
Many everyday items that can be found in your pantry and medicine cabinet may contain parabens. Parabens are chemical compounds that are used as preservatives in everyday items such as, hair care, skin care, oral care, baby care, and household items such as packaged goods that contain chemical additives. Some studies have shown that parabens are safe for us; however, an equal number of studies have demonstrated that parabens have a direct linkage to cancer. We believe its better to be safe and to avoid parabens. Ingredients
