When we first started making products, we evaluated the ingredients we did or did not use based on the European Health Commission's standards which have banned over 1300 chemicals from cosmetic use. The FDA here in the USA has banned only 8 chemicals. Below are some of the ingredients that will NEVER be in any of our products because we feel the safety hasn't been proven or they have been proven by the European health commission to be unsafe.
