The Ingredients You Won’t Find In My Skincare Products

Chemicals within skincare are not always necessarily a bad thing, we are made up of many chemicals, however I generally prefer to know what is in my food and skincare and like many people choose products with natural ingredients and which have been sustainably sourced. This is a summary of the products within skincare I avoid.

Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphate (SLS) / (SLES)



Synthetic Colour

Fragrance / Parfum

I opt for real essential oils (aromatherapy), these are from a natural plant source.

Palm Oil

Owing to overuse due to high demand and inexpensive cost of this ingredient within the food and beauty industry, this has lead to deforestation and some complex social problems caused by the working conditions. Many consumers have chosen to avoid this ingredient. There has been an increased demand for Sustainable Palm Oil however very little of this has been certified.
