PURE SKIN CLEAN CONSCIENCE

The beauty industry needs to be aligned with social and environmental responsibility.

Ingredients lurking in your care products may cause cancer, disrupt your hormones and damage the environment. Unlike our liver that can filter out toxins, our skin can absorb chemicals into the bloodstream, cells, and organs without any filtering. Eliminating toxins benefits your health + the planet, while garnering the benefits as you age. The EU has banned 1,400 harmful ingredients from personal care products. The United States? 30.

NEVER LIST

Parabens, Phthalates, Fragrance, Sulfates, Toluene, BHA & BHT, Retinyl Palmitate, Retinol, Formaldehyde, Mineral Oil, Petroleum, Oxybenzone, and animal ingredients.

ETHICS

Animal testing is the ugly side of the beauty industry. Animals are subjected to cruel inhumane tests that are painful and cause permanent damage and death.  100 million animals are tortured and killed every year. It’s illegal to sell animal-tested cosmetics in Europe, even if the testing was done outside Europe. This sales ban made it clear that animal testing is immoral. Animals used are beagles, bunnies, guinea pigs, mice, and rats.

BEAUTY TIPS

Wash Gently

No matter your skin type, washing your skin should never involve stripping away natural oils. This can result in dry skin and inflammation—a root cause of acne and aging. Clean skin with an oil or balm cleanser.

Keep it Simple

Putting too many products on your skin can have a reverse effect.

Rotate your Products

Your skin can build up a tolerance. Rotate your products every 6 months, which line up with seasonal transitions.

Treat

Apply vitamin A serum nightly and vitamin C serum daily. Use a rejuvenation cream 5 nights a week.

Deep Clean

Once a week, detox your skin with a purifying mud mask.

Polish

Give your skin a glow-boost with a natural microdermabrasion exfoliator.

Rejuvenate

Hydrate your tired skin with a weekly moisture mask.

INGREDIENTS LURKING IN YOUR NAIL POLISH

fish scales + insects + toxins

You’ve probably become used to the chemical odors at the nail salon. Repeated exposure to chemical fumes of nail polish can have harmful effects on your health. Gels/Shellacs are formulated with formaldehyde, camphor, and toluene to name a few. Damage from LED lamps can cause DNA damage resulting in aging hands and skin cancer. Avoid gels and nail polish brands like OPI, Essie, Revlon, and Sally Hansen. Opt for nail salons who use chemical-free and cruelty-free products.
