If you are not okay with toxic ingredients in your food, why should you be okay with toxic ingredients in your skincare products? Skincare, after all, is food for your skin.
Clean Beauty is Not Universally Defined
Fun fact: Europe has some of the strictest regulations when it comes to cosmetics, banning up to 1,400 toxic ingredients from cosmetic products that are known or suspected carcinogens (things that cause cancer!). Other continents only ban around 14 of these toxic ingredients. Let that sink in.
So, it's best to get to know some of the most toxic ingredients so you can look out for them on your next skincare run––here's a list of some of the most common ones.
- Synthetic fragrance
- PEGs (Polyethylene Glycol)
You'll be surprised as to how prevalent harmful skincare ingredients are in today's products.
How Can You Ensure Your Skincare is Clean?
For the longest time, beauty was created out of big corporate factories. They supplied it, we applied it. But times are different now— we have access to enough information to identify what's good for us and what's not.
We have personally faced this problem for over a decade now, we are strong advocates of clean beauty.
We absolutely refrain from using even mildly toxic ingredients— including suspected toxic ones. If an ingredient has the potential to cause even the slightest harm to your skin or the environment, we omit it entirely. We're also 100% cruelty-free (we love animals)!
Here are 3 clean beauty tips to takeaway:
☑ Always check for the ingredients that are going into your beauty products
☑ Use only clean, active ingredients on your skin
☑ Simplify your skincare routine with personalised skincare
