Our ingredient philosophy is based on giving skin what it needs. Packed with essential ingredients, think of it as topical supplements for your skin.
Proven + Pure
We select ingredients that are clinically proven to benefit the skin - vitamins, antioxidants, moisturizing agents, probiotic ferment, and skin barrier strengtheners.
And we responsibly source only the highest quality, most pure versions of those skin-essential ingredients. We hold our suppliers to the same ultra clean standards we have, and screen each one for impurities or residual contamination.
We're also 100% vegan with no animal-derived ingredients, cruelty-free, skin pH friendly, and made in the USA.
Purest Formulations Possible
We set a new standard of clean beauty, without the preservatives required by the typical 2+ year shelf life, and without any ingredients known or even suspected to be concerning.
A New Standard of Clean
When it comes to healthy skin, we don't take risks. We exclude any ingredient known or even suspected to be concerning. That means zero preservatives, allergens, fragrances, silicones, phthalates, sulfates, endocrine-disruptors, fluoridated materials (PFAS), Amines / EDTA, mineral or essential oils, microbeads, nano materials. The list goes on and on.
We also carefully select and screen every ingredient for purity. Even our standard for the water in our products is set higher than the industry's, so that it's uniquely clean and high quality.
Our clean and pure formulations are safe and gentle, hypoallergenic, pH- and microbiome-friendly, and dermatologist-approved for even the most susceptible skin.
