No Nasties, No Brainer.
No Parabens + No PEGs + No Exceptions
While working with our Korean laboratory, we performed intense R&D to formulate our products without Parabens, PEGs, and other toxic ingredients. This gives us a clean conscience in knowing our ingredients are free of hidden nasties found in traditional skincare.
For the positive impacts on our skin and the planet, we use plant derived ingredients wherever possible. In alignment with our future aspirations (and your peace of mind) we have chosen to formulate our products following the 'Clean and Planet Positive' at Sephora standard.
Below is a list of the heavy hitter ingredients included in each formula. We also share the nasties we're actively avoiding, and why.

The Junk We Avoid
PEG is the abbreviation of polyethylene glycol, which is not its own individual compound but a mixture of chemicals and polymers. Polyethylene is a common PLASTIC and when paired with glycol it transforms into a thick, sticky liquid.
Who the hell wants plastic in their skincare? Not us.
Roughly 80% of every barrel of oil is used to make gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel, with the rest going into petrochemical products that are used widely in cosmetics. (EW.)
Petrochemicals in beauty and personal care products are byproducts of the oil and gas industry in their attempt to make back lost profits from their declining industry.
We actively try to avoid using petrochemicals whenever and wherever necessary.
