Our Personal Care Ingredients
We are constantly updating and improving our formula, sourcing and using new ingredient alternatives that are mild to the skin and, wherever possible, organic and so kinder to the environment.
‘NO’ to SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCES – We only ever use pure essential oils and absolutes. Directly derived from plants, they are entirely natural and deliver their own unique therapeutic and aromatic properties.
‘NO’ to SLS/SLES – We use alternative cleansing and foaming agents, such as ALS, which is derived from coconut oil and free from petrochemicals, to deliver mild foam that is kind to the skin.
‘NO’ to PARABENS – The alternatives that we use (chlorphenesin, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, to name a few) are just as effective in terms of microbiological/challenge testing, but are often milder to the skin.
‘NO’ to ANIMAL INGREDIENTS – We do not use animal derived ingredients, such as lanolin or beeswax, and our products and ingredients are not tested on animals by us or on our behalf. We are proud to be certified by the Vegan Society.
AND ‘NO’ to OTHER INGREDIENTS WE CONSIDER UNSOUND – Such as phthalates, formaldehyde, petrochemicals (such as mineral oil, paraffin and petrolatum), propylene glycol, aluminium compounds, triclosan, BHA, methyldibromoglutaronitrile, triethanolamine, DMDM hydantoin, diazolidinyl urea and quaternium-15.
‘YES’ to ORGANIC – We go organic wherever possible.
