Would you put toxic chemicals on your face?

The answer is NO?

These toxins have long term impact on our health that may not show until later years.As consumers, we can put pressure on the industry to go natural and organic.

Ten chemicals to avoid in personal care products:

To help you to avoid potentially toxic chemicals when purchasing personal care products for yourself, and for your family we’ve prepared this quick reference guide.

PHTHALATES
Phthalates have been linked to birth defects and cancer, and are known to damage the liver, kidneys, lungs and reproductive system. Look for: DBP (dibutylphthalate), DEP (diethylphthalate) and butyl ester.

 

SODIUM LAURYL/LAURETH SULFATE
These common foaming agents are also used to clean engines and garage floors. Sometimes disguised as ‘derived from coconut’, they are nasty skin irritants and can form nitrosamines (a deadly carcinogenic) when combined with other chemicals.

 

PARABENS
Are thought to be carcinogenic and linked to breast cancer in particular. Look for: butylparaben, ethylparaben, isobutylparaben, methlyparaben, propylparaben.

 

MINERAL OIL
This petroleum by-product clogs the skin, prevents it from breathing and detoxifying naturally, causes premature aging, and can be contaminated with carcinogens that are linked to breast cancer. Look for: mineral oil, petroleum, liquid paraffin.

 

FRAGRANCE
This is a misleading euphemism that refers to nearly 4,000 synthetics, which are allergens that can attack the central nervous system, and are known to trigger asthma attacks.

 

UREA AND DMDM HYDRATION
These derivatives of formaldehyde (which is used to preserve dead body parts) are classified by the EPA as probable human carcinogens linked to allergies, depression, insomnia and asthma. Look for: imidazolidnyl urea, diazolidinyl urea, 3-diol diazolidinyl urea, DMDM hydanotin, bronopol, and quaternium-15.

 

POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL (PEG)
PEG is also used in spray-on oven cleaners. It will strip your skin and hair of protective oils, which makes them vulnerable to other toxins.

 

TRICLOSAN
This registered pesticide is a close cousin of Agent Orange and so toxic it’s measured in parts per trillion. It’s linked to birth defects, paralysis, heart problems and brain haemorrhages.

 

PROPYLENE GLYCOL
Is also the active ingredient in antifreeze (industrial workers are required to wear protective clothing when working with it), and is linked to brain, liver and kidney abnormalities.

 

DEA (DIETHANOLAMINE), MEA (MONOETHANOLAMINE), TEA (TRIETHANOLAMINE)
These chemicals can form cancer-causing agents and are strongly linked to incidences of kidney and liver cancer.

Our Standards

Full Transparency

logo001

When it comes to regulating the personal care industry, our lawmakers have been slow to move. As a result, too many manufacturers can get away with claims that their products are natural and organic, even though they are full of synthetic chemicals and the natural ingredients they use are only a minuscule percentage of the total ingredients.

Because of government inaction we have taken action ourselves, securing certifications which guarantee that we are what we claim to be. In addition, we fully disclose all the ingredients we use. We hope that soon, the law will change. In the meantime, you can trust us to be fully transparent, so that you can be sure you’re getting the product you want.

logo002

BIOGRO

BioGro is a New Zealand based, internationally accredited certification agency. Its seal on our products is a guarantee that they are ‘Made with Organic’, meaning that a minimum of 70% organic ingredients go into each product, or that they are ‘Organic’, with a minimum of 95% organic ingredients. It also means that the remaining ingredients are non-toxic, free of harmful synthetic chemicals and GMO ingredients, and pose no known risk to health or the environment.

logo003

VEGAN

You will find the vegan symbol on almost all of our packaging (there is a tiny minority of products where we use beeswax). This is a guarantee that our products are free from dairy and other animal derived products, allowing you to shop with confidence. It is also a sign of our commitment to animal welfare. We don’t test on animals and we never will.

logo004

USDA

The USDA Organic Seal is a much-respected guarantee that a product is certified organic.

logo005

FSC

The FSC symbol on our packaging lets you know that it is sourced from sustainable forestry card. Complementing this, we only print with vegetable inks.
