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.

first,be kind

The world needs kindness more than ever today. Kindness towards the earth, to people, to animals, to ourselves. It is time to stop promoting impossible and unrealistic visions of beauty; time to stop scaring people into buying things to avert ugliness or to erase the well-earned lines of age and wisdom. Its time to be kind, and we’re there!

It does what it claims!

I am on my 2nd bottle now and I can see my pimples disappearing. Though I still get pimples once in a while but this serum helps me get rid of them faster. I just wish it was a little less oily but maybe I am using more than necessary (can't take a chance with my stubborn pimples!). Overall I love it. Thanks for this product Ilana <3

Nothing works except this product for my acne

I have always had acne and few product works and rest don't. Even sometimes the product that have been working stops works. But not the same issue with ilana skin clarifying serum. My acne stays at bar any time when I use it and I also use it as spot treatment at night and within few days the acne+ spot disappear.

Love it!

I remember writing 'not so good' review when i first started using this product a year back. I was sure not to use it after 4-5 uses as my skin started reacting to it but Ilana's team reached out and assured me to continue using it for a while to see the results.
I am so glad i trusted them and gave it another shot!
It's absolutely a magic potion for my skin. My skin has become so much clearer after consistent usage of this serum and my acne has reduced drastically!
I've now ordered Ilana's clarifying toner and hoping for great results as its sibling ;) :)
