7 ingredients you’ll never find in our store
Let’s dive into some of the skincare ingredients that we avoid and why you should too
Sulphates, such as sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulphate (SLES) are foaming agents often found in cleansers. While they create a satisfying lather, sulphates can strip your skin of its natural oils and trigger irritation or allergies. We opt for sulphate-free formulas to gently cleanse without causing harm.
Phthalates are chemical compounds that enhance the fragrance and texture of personal care products (yes, we’re talking about fragrance again). These chemicals pose a range of potential health risks and have even been linked to increased risk of breast cancer(a definite no-go!).
5. Mineral Oils
Derived from highly processed petroleum, mineral oils create a barrier on the skin's surface that can clog pores and prevent your skin's natural ability to breathe. Plant-based oils such as jojoba, argan or coconut are much better alternatives as they contain vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids that are beneficial for the skin.
These tiny plastic beads can be found in products such as face scrubs, toothpaste and even blush. Microbeadsare less than 5mm in diameter and don't break down, resulting in major plastic pollution. All our scrubs are made from pumice, rice powder or repurposed coffee. True story!
