We don’t need to hurt the animals. Product should be safe without testing.
We believe in toxic-free, transparent beauty. For that reason, we do not allow the following:
We do allow the use of lanolin and beeswax if they are ethically sourced.
Butylated hydroxyanisole and butylated hydroxytoluene are sometimes used in cosmetics (mostly food) as a preservative. They have been linked to cancer.
This would include ingredients such as sodium laureth sulphates, PEG’s, and phenoxyethanol…just to name a few. When ethoxylated compounds are processed, they create carcinogenic by-product called 11,4 dioxane. These ingredients are often found in mainstream shampoos and conditioners to help the products foam and “clean” the hair of its oils.
EU and US regulators do not require that companies identify the specific ingredient/s used as a fragrance. For that reason, companies are only required to list “fragrance” or “parfum” on the ingredient label. It gives brands an opportunity to hide phthatlates not otherwise listed. For that reason, we require brands to provide a statement that no phthaltes have been used.
