Petrochemicals in Skin Care

What are petrochemicals?

Everyday, the oil industry produces hundreds of by-products called petrochemicals. Despite being unnecessary, ineffective and potentially toxic, these chemicals are used in the overwhelming majority of cosmetic products around the world.


Are they a big deal?

Numerous studies have shown petrochemicals can be at least cause allergic relations, and even more worrying is the continued, long-term exposure to these chemicals over a lifetime.

Not only are these chemicals potentially damaging to our wellbeing, but they are also inferior and completely unnecessary. We will never use petrochemicals in our skin care.

We suggest you _avoid_ petrochemicals including sulfates, parabens, silicon, alcohol, synthetic fragrances, harsh preservatives, mineral oil, sodium laureth'/lauryl sulphate, parabens, micro beads, synthetic fragrances, lanolin, methylisothiazolinone, artificial colours, perfumes, and palm oil.
