Our Promise To You; No Chemical Fillers, EVER.

February 20, 2018

Our Promise To You; No Chemical Fillers, EVER.

­There is a lot of talk about the use of fillers in skincare. While most skincare brands use some kind of chemical fillers, we guarantee no chemical fillers, ever!

What does that mean? It means that we do not use fillers such as Propylene or Butylene Glycols or any Parabens or Alcohol stabilizers!  

These types of glycols and parabens are proven to be toxic and carcinogenic, yet they are used in most over the counter skincare products. When you take a closer look at the ingredient labels of luxury skincare brands, you will notice the use of these prolific fillers. Even certain “so called natural or botanical” brands use them.

Why use them at all?

These chemical fillers are used as preservatives, keeping products moist and well-formed as time goes by.

However, these dangerous ingredients are known to cause skin irritations as well as show up in your blood after long term use. While they are cost effective for the creators of these brands, they are not effective as skincare ingredients, or safe for your long term health and well being!

In fact, they are toxic and if you are committed to leading a green and healthy lifestyle without affecting your endocrine system, we suggest you stay far away from ingredients like these chemical fillers.

What is the alternative?

What you should look out for when purchasing skincare is the use of fillers versus effective ingredients.

Between 85% - 90% off my product ingredients are actually doing something for your skin. Of course we also use preservatives but not chemical preservatives.

After years of research I found a probiotic preservative that is the result of a natural fermentation process. Not only does it keep my products moist and well-formed over time, it’s also an effective ingredient. Probiotics in skincare are popular right now, and for good reason! They keep your skin cells ALIVE and healthy from the outside in! 

Be vigilant when purchasing your skincare products, take a close look at the ingredients and Google the ones you do not recognize. As always, if you have any questions about natural skincare or the kinds of ingredients I use in my products, please reach out!
