We Ban Toxic Ingredients
We formulate the purest, healthiest cosmetics possible without compromising performance. To do this, we have banned more than 1,300 chemicals. Most of these chemicals are already banned or restricted in the European Union and/or listed on Health Canada’s Hot List. We do not formulate with known cancer causing or endocrine disrupting ingredients. We do use synthetic ingredients when necessary - but only non-toxic, safe synthetics. All of our products rank a 2 or lower on the hazard scale on the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep ® Cosmetic Database.
We Ban Animal Ingredients
We are a vegan brand. We love animals and do not feel animals should suffer for beauty. Therefore, we do not formulate with animal or animal-derived ingredients. Instead, we find suitable ingredients that are organic, natural, plant-derived or non-toxic synthetic. We do not test on animals and we do not use suppliers that test on animals. We are Leaping Bunny certified.
We Ban Green Washing
Green washing is the practice of deceptively using green PR or green marketing to promote the perception that an organization's products, aims or policies are environmentally friendly. Our goal is to be 100% transparent. We understand that only you can decide what chemicals you will and will not allow for in your beauty products. That’s why we share all of our ingredients in our product labeling. We always list all of our ingredients including flavors, fragrance components and proprietary formulas. And when we use a safe synthetic ingredient we call it out. We want you to know what you are putting on your skin.
