KEY INGREDIENTS:

Magnesium helps improve skin’s overall appearance, reducing acne and other skin disorders by lowering cortisol levels, stabilizing hormonal imbalances, and improving cellular processes. It helps in controlling oily, red, or irritated skin. The transdermal absorption of magnesium has been scientifically proven.

Potassium is efficient and safe moisturiser, which provides a smooth skin feel.

Calcium regulates cell turnover by stimulating certain enzymes, giving you plumper skin. It also helps improve skin barrier function, which protects skin against invading pathogens and locks in moisture.

Vitamin E is a naturally occurring component of healthy skin. It offers significant antioxidant properties to help defend from pollution and other environmental stressors that would otherwise weaken skin, causing unwanted changes. Without a doubt, using Vitamin E and Vitamin C together is great for skin. When combined, they can improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, brighten a dull complexion, and strengthen skin’s defenses against the impact of environmental assault. These antioxidants play well together because Vitamin C works optimally on the surface level, whereas Vitamin E is oil-soluble so it goes deeper – you get the best of both worlds.

Panthenol is best known for its ability to act as a moisturizing ingredient — which attracts and retains moisture in skin. Provitamin B5 stabilizes the skin’s barrier function, reducing the amount of water lost through the skin. This, in turn, improves skin texture and elasticity. When applied, Panthenol reduces itching, redness and suppresses inflammation. Thanks to its moisture retaining effect, Panthenol can also make hair shinier and counteract frizziness.

WE NEVER USE:

Artificial colorants or dyes are synthetic additives combined to make a single colour. Up to 25 synthetic additives are needed to create one artificial dye. The toxins that artificial colours leave on your skin greatly increase your risk of sensitivity and irritation and allow these chemicals to be absorbed into your body where they can cause even greater damage. They can also block your pores, which leads to a greater risk of acne.

The term “fragrance” was created for companies to protect their formulas. Synthetic (or chemical) fragrances are a significant cause of allergic reactions to beauty products. While they appear as a single item on ingredient lists, such fragrances can actually contain dozens or even hundreds of ingredients. Synthetic fragrances are found in personal care products such as shampoos, body washes, and soaps, as well as cleaning products such as air fresheners, candles, dryer sheets, and detergents.  You will commonly find this ingredient listed as Perfume, Parfume or Fragrance. Meaning, it can contain anything and the manufacturer is not required to disclose it. Fragrance mixes have been associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and potential effects on the reproductive system.

These substances, like cling film, create a barrier on the skin. They do retain hydration, but also sweat, bacteria, sebum, dead skin cells and impurities. Prolonged exposure to fat, dead skin cells and bacteria underneath the silicone layer can increase the number of breakouts. What’s worse – silicones delay the process of the formation of new cells and the exfoliation of old ones that stick to the surface of the skin for much longer. Additionally, silicones inhibit the absorption of active ingredients and do not provide the skin with anything valuable.

Group of synthetic compounds commonly used as preservatives in a wide range of personal care products. Cumulative exposure to the chemicals from several different skincare products could be overloading our bodies and contributing to a wide range of health problems. In 2004, British scientist Philippa Darbre published a research paper that appeared to find traces of parabens in breast cancer tissue samples. While there wasn’t enough evidence to conclusively prove a link between paraben use and increased cancer risk, the paper did prove that parabens can pass through the skin barrier and into our bodies.

Very common ingredient in skincare, haircare, and baby products. You will find it in anything from moisturizers to foundation to lip balm to baby oil and hair conditioners. It is a cheap oil that is used as a filler and “moisturizer” in most products. Mineral oil seals the skin, which can trap other comedogenic ingredients. It also contains no nutrients whatsoever. Mineral oil aggravates acne and negatively affects functions of the skin, linking it to premature aging.  

PEGs (polyethylene glycols) are petroleum-based compounds that are widely used in cosmetics as thickeners, softeners, and moisture-carriers. Depending on manufacturing processes, PEGs may be contaminated with measurable amounts of ethylene oxide, which are classified as a known human carcinogen.

SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and SLES (Sodium Laureth ether Sulfate) are harsh sulfates used as foaming and cleansing agents. Sulphates are nearly always found in shampoos because they are what makes it lather properly. They’re also a detergent that wpies away dirt and grime from your air and skin. However, sulphates are very harsh chemicals that can make your hair lose its shine and become dry. They can be bad for your hair’s condition, growth and shine as they strip your hair of natural oils that it needs to look healthy.

The Methylisothiazolinone + Methylchloroisothiazolinone mixture has been used a lot by the industry over the last few years, especially to replace the parabens hunted down by consumers. But it was not long before the strongly allergenic potential of this complex was highlighted and alerted health authorities. As of April 2016, leave-on cosmetic products containing the combination MCIT/MIT have been banned from the European market. Furthermore, as of February 2017, the preservative MIT used alone was also banned in leave-on cosmetic products.

1,4-dioxane is an impurity that may be present in trace amounts in some cosmetics and personal care products. 1,4-dioxane itself is not used as an intentionally added ingredient, but can form as a by-product during the manufacturing process of certain ethoxylated ingredients used in cosmetics and personal care products. Research has shown that 1,4-dioxane can readily penetrate the skin. It is considered to be a probable human carcinogen and is listed as an animal carcinogen.

DMDM hydantoin is an odorless white, crystalline substance that works as an antimicrobial agent and preservative in cosmetics and personal care products. Studies have shown that problems arise with some people due to sensitivity to formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is classified as carcinogenic and allergenic.

Formaldehyde is nothing more than a preservative, disinfectant, and fungicide. Note – its use is very wide. What causes? Irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. Nausea, coughing, nosebleeds, rash, contact dermatitis, and asthma are not the only side effects. First of all, it is toxic to the immune, nervous, respiratory and reproductive systems, as well as to the skin and liver. Formaldehyde is carcinogenic (causes cancer) and teratogenic (poses a risk to the developing fetus). It is worth adding that animal studies have shown that it contributes to the development of gastrointestinal cancer and leukemia.

Petrolatum is a jelly made of mineral oil that is often used in lip products. While the products that use it are often advertised to help prevent chapping, petrolatum can actually interfere with the body’s natural moisturizing abilities. What’s more, this ingredient can be contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, compounds that are associated with cancer.

Phthalates help ingredients stick to your skin. Several studies have shown that phthalates could impact fetal development in pregnant women. Phthalates accumulate in adipose tissue and are therefore difficult to remove from the body. They are toxic not only to the liver and kidneys, but also to the bloodstream, reproductive and nervous systems. They show carcinogenic, teratogenic and mutagenic effects. They cause endocrine disorders and are a factor in the development of breast cancer (found in breast tumors). In addition, animal studies have shown that they cause infertility.

This substance is derived from petroleum. Known as a solvent. It is not allowed in the countries of the European Union. It is found in mascaras, lipsticks, moisturizing creams and baby creams. May cause contact dermatitis. It is toxic to the respiratory, nervous and immune systems.

Polyethylene is one of the most commonly used microplastics in cosmetic products such as skin cleansers and skin care products as well as mascara, eye shadows, lipsticks etc. Polyethylene has also been largely used for the formation of microbeads. Microbeads are small, solid plastic beads which are intentionally added to cosmetic products for exfoliating, smoothing, or polishing the skin. The ingredient is harmful to the environment.

Triethanolamine is used in many cosmetic products to help balance pH levels, as well as to act as a cleansing base. When absorbed into the body over a long period of time, it can become toxic. Even short periods of exposure can cause allergic reactions, including eye problems and dry hair and skin.

Triclosan is a widely used antimicrobial chemical. Even though it is frequently used in antibacterial products, there is not much evidence to support that washing with triclosan is any more effective than washing with regular soap and water.

The substance can be found, among others in creams with a UV filter. Why is its use controversial? Scientists have found that it negatively affects the reproductive system. In addition, it causes skin irritation, allergic reactions and endocrine disrupting.
