Ingredients to Avoid

Phthalates

Phthalates are used as a fixative for fragrances, particularly in moisturisers and body creams.

They're often absent from ingredients labels, instead being listed under 'parfum' and 'fragrance' or alternative names like DEP, DBP and DEHP.

There are safety concerns around the effect Phthalates have on reproductive and endocrine systems and some forms are banned in the EU.

SLS/SLES

We avoid all sulfates, including sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulphate (SLES). 

The same ingredients that leave your dishes squeaky clean, these detergents can strip away the skin’s natural protective oils and increase pH levels, leaving sensitive skin imbalanced and exposed to irritation.

We believe they can easily be substituted for kinder, natural alternatives.

Often used as a substitute for parabens, phenoxyethanol is a popular preservative choice for natural beauty products.

We avoid this preservative as it can be a trigger for condition such as eczema and contact dermatitis – it also brings our founder Sarah out in a rash!
