Silicones

Silicones are notoriously famous in the beauty industry for its occlusive properties. In simple terms, they form a layer on the skin that clog the pores and lead to breakouts. Their impact on the environment is an altogether separate issue. Being bio accumulative, they build up in waterways and oceans and take hundreds of years to break down. In light of these reasons, we opt for natural derivatives of silicones like vegetable glycerine, honey and olive oil esters that give a slip and solvency to our serums.

Synthetic Perfumes

While we make every attempt to refrain from adding synthetic perfumes to our products, we add IFRA certified fragrances where absolutely necessary. In other circumstances, we strive to use essential oils or natural, food fragrances as substitutes.

Talc

Talc or anhydrous magnesium silicate is the main ingredient found in loose and pressed powders. With most talc compounds being contaminated with asbestos that is carcinogenic in nature, it becomes imperative to either ensure that the brand is transparent in its sourcing or uses substitutes like corn starch, rice powder or responsibly mined mica.

Chemical Sunscreen

Chemical Sunscreens contain carbon-based compounds that protect the skin by reacting with UV rays to convert them into heat and release them from the skin barrier. In this context they can be referred to chemical absorbers. In technical terms they are categorised as Oxybenzone, Octinoxate, Octocrylene and Homosalate. While a number of brands produce chemical sunscreens, we use natural ingredients like raspberry and carrots that are rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants to provide natural protection from the harmful rays of the sun.

Phthalates

Termed as industrial plasticizers in the skincare industry, they are used as skin softeners in formulations to assist in dissolving and combining ingredients. They also make the skin supple and more elastic when applied. On a skincare label you’ll find them as under DHPs, DMPs, BBPs and DNOPs. Used in tandem with fragrance, they have been linked with reproductive and hormonal issues in men and women. They can also cause breast cancer, reproductive deformations, and infertility. In place of Phthalates, we use safe natural substitutes like Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E as moisturising ingredients and Castor Oil and Carnauba Wax because of their solubility.

Sulphates

Sulfates fall under surfactants, which attract both oil and water molecules. In skincare they are responsible for drawing oily dirt to one side of the molecule while clinging to water droplets on the other side. Hence they strip the skin and hair off grease and dirt, emulsify it with the water droplets while it goes down the drain. These accumulate in water bodies and cause toxicity while making your hair and skin dry and prone to damage. They are found as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate Sodium Lauroyl Taurate Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate in formulations. Due to all these factors, they are a permanent feature of our No-No list.

MUSINGS FROM OUR FOUNDER

how, what, why

WATERMELONS FOR THE WIN.. I love to eat watermelons, such a juicy tropical fruit and the idea of putting them on your face just has fascinated me over time before I had even known about the benefits of this fruit. Watermelon is full of antioxidants such as lycopene and also vitamin C and A which helps reduce free radicals that can slow down the signs of ageing. The application and consumption of Vitamin A can encourage growth of collagen and elastin cells that helps your skin stay young and supple. So we suggest going in for a glass of watermelon juice, while you enjoy this ESSENCE OF WATERMELON ;)

Unique hydrating mist

Due to my sensitive skin and eyes not many products suit me. However high end high end or basic they are. Out of all their products this mist particularly I found awesome. It definitely definitely hydrates. And gives life and glow to your skin. Doesn’t bother my eyes either. I use it regularly now and love this particular product of theirs.

First of all, if you want to try this product, I'd suggest buying the big bottle instead of the mini. Best to use it as a spritz, which isn't possible with the mini. The smell was either lost or the product doesn't have a smell. I take this as a positive, I'm a little tired of even pleasant smelling artificial fragrances. I didn't see any major pore reduction or hydration. I'd suggest using it as a freshness spritz when on the move.
