The Naked Chemist sources only natural ingredients.

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:

Alcohol

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 first hand how this ingredient dries the skin, damaging the all important acid mantle.

It is also a known irritant; causing inflammation and conditions such as rosacea.

Lanolin 

Scraped from the fat of sheep. Do we really need this ingredient in our formulas? We think not.

This is a common skin care ingredient, and I have to say it is a personal pet hate of ours.

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 we don’t condone.

In saying that, it may be worth noting this is not to be confused with vegetable lanolin, which we sometimes use in our skin care formulas.Β

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 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 us, to provide you with, safe and effective skin care and advice. 

Love, The Naked Chemist xx
