What isn't in our products?

You've seen what IS in our products, but how about the stuff we leave out?
This list barely scratches the surface. There is a barrage of chemicals added to most soaps and skin products, most of which have harsh side effects. Why? Well, put simply; it's cheap. When products are pure, have no fillers, and don't have a bunch of added cheap chemicals... the price skyrockets for production.
This is just a few that are found in some name brand "gentle" moisturizing soaps:

●Titanium Dioxide: Titanium Dioxide has very recently been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as an IARC Group 2B carcinogen ''possibly carcinogen to humans''. It was agreed that titanium dioxide does now meet the criteria for WHMIS D2A (carcinogen) based on the information released by IARC to date.

●Hydrogenated Castor Oil: According to a study published in the International Journal of Toxicology, Hydrogenated Castor Oil can contain harmful impurities, including: Ethylene Oxide, known to increase the incidences of uterine and breast cancers and of leukemia and brain cancer, according to experimental results reported by the National Toxicology Program.

●Sodium Trideceth Sulfate: This is a widely used detergent present in many shampoos and personal care items. This compound can be irritating to the eyes and skin, and may contain the carcinogen dioxane. The Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association discourage it for prolonged use.

●Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil: Also known as trans fats, these oils have become more known for their damaging health effects. Many scientists and health professional believe trans fats are so dangerous they should be banned.

●Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate: Many sources claim that Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinates is carcinogenic because it contains surfactants, which can be contaminated with nitrosamines. It can be found commonly in car washes, engine degreasers, and other products used on an industrial level.

●Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate: Although it is considered generally mild, all surfactants can be irritants, and tend to be more irritating at higher concentrations. Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate has been specifically shown to cause some eye irritation at higher concentrations. According to the Cosmetics Database, it is also linked to organ-system toxicity.

●Cetyl Alcohol: Many dermatologists recommend that individuals with sensitive/irritated skin avoid it. Many medical experts believe that cetyl alcohol, and many other fatty alcohols, have the ability to altercate the lipid bilayer of the epidermis (protective barrier) and cause allergic dermal reactions in some (see article in 1999 issue of Contact Dermatitis). There are many other medical studies supporting the potential irritation associated with this ingredient. Considering this information, it's best that sensitive skin types perform a patch test with any product containing this ingredient, particularly anyone suffering from a skin condition such as Rosacea or Psoriasis.

●Glycerin: The US imports a huge amount of Glycerin. They add it to soaps to help nourish your skin, which it does. However, there have been cases where countries have imported poisoned/contaminated glycerin from places like China. Our glycerin naturally occurs in the soap making process, and we don't add any.
