I source sources only natural ingredients for my formulas.
Ingredients that have been carefully formulated to work with your skin type.
I strongly believe in transparency in beauty, for this reason, I have compiled a list of ingredients, both chemical and natural, that I choose to avoid in my formulas:
Ethyl Alcohol is more commonly known as Alcohol Dent also goes by the name Ethanol, SD Alcohol and Fermented Grain Extract.
As an aesthetician, I have seen firsthand how this ingredient dries the skin, damaging the acid mantle, it is also a known irritant causing inflammation and conditions such as rosacea.
This ingredient is scraped from the fat of sheep, so do we really need this ingredient in our formulas? This is a common skin care ingredient, and I have to say it is a personal pet hate of mine.
This coupled with the fact that sheep regularly get dipped in strong chemicals, says it all really.
Lanolin is also used industrially in the marine industry, to prevent rust forming on boats, purified, or not, this is one ingredient I don’t condone.
There are still too many manufacturers of personal care products, exploiting the term Natural when in reality, they are formulating products that are using hidden nasties like the ones I discussed.
Fortunately you don’t need to become a skin care detective and root through difficult names to find the good bad and the ugly; now you have me to provide you with, safe and effective skin care and advice.
