This past mother’s day was wild! We want to thank all our customers who visited our Etsy shop and trusted us to make their gift sets for them!
We got some great questions from our customers and one of the most asked questions we get is: How we came to decide that skin care could be chemical free?
It’s simple considering that most products these days come from an excess or by-product of substance. Notice I said substance and not ingredients? We truly believe that even though it’s a valiant effort to use by-products such as mineral oil and petroleum we think the last place it should be is on your skin.
Seeking out what kinds of ingredients that were in our products at home is exactly the reason we don’t have chemicals in our products. Go and grab your most recently used product, type it into google and see what you get! You’ll be shocked!
We took out the bad and replaced a natural effective alternative. Botanical based and all are vegetarian. Some products are vegan but we do use beeswax that is harvested cruelty-free (we will explain more in another post).
Another thing we considered is that eczema and psoriasis is affecting more and more over the past few decades.. We wondered why.. Take in consideration that the world we live in currently has been polluted and our waters tainted…that’s definitely a factor.. but also… we started adding more chemicals to our bodies.. why?
It’s cheaper to make! Petroleum is a by-product of gas drilling. So its a win-win in the economist’s eyes. Have a product made just for the excess of by-product of gas. Having a chem-lab create a moisturizing compound is cheaper than going to Africa for Shea Butter.
