Why choose natural ingredients for your skin? Good question! There are two main reasons. Natural ingredients are better for the environment and way better for you.
Have you ever read the ingredients list of a popular skincare moisturiser or cleanser? They’re hard to understand, right? That’s because they’re full of chemicals, some of which have been linked to numerous health concerns.
Parabens (butyl, propyl and ethyl) is a skincare ingredient people are questioning after one study showed it in breast cancer tissue - yikes! SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate), often found in soaps and gels, causes skin irritation and has been linked to hormone disruption. These are just two of the many chemicals found in skincare. There are countless others.
These harmful chemicals aren't just bad for you but when we wash them off our face, they go down the drain into the ocean and affect marine life. This is why we choose to make our skincare with natural ingredients, so you don’t have to worry about your health and you know you’re being kind to the environment.
Why use toxins when natural ingredients are so good? We list our favourite 5.
