We want the products we slather all over our faces and bodies to be healthy, not harmful or suspect. We avoid the most concerning ingredients that have been flagged as potentially unsafe by the scientific and medical community. Our blacklist: formaldehyde-releasers, chemicals made using ethylene oxide, petroleum and mineral oil, parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrance, chemical sunscreens, and preservatives methylisothiazolinone and benzalkonium chloride.
Cancer sucks. And other stuff.
