Most of our products are gluten-free, with the exception of:
- Fruit Pigmented Ultra Lengthening Mascara
- Pro-Vitamin B5 Smoothing Hair Serum
These formulas contain wheat, oat protein, or wheat germ oil for the thickening effect. All other products are gluten-free!
We know that gluten can sometimes hide in other ingredient names that you wouldn't suspect! Common ingredients that can contain gluten, are Vitamin E and Tocopherol. Our Vitamin E and Tocopherol are derived from cold-pressed rice bran, so they're fully gluten-free.
Most of our products are corn-free, with the exception of any products containing natural grain alcohol or corn oil. Our natural grain alcohol is derived from corn, but we're currently looking for a rice-based grain alcohol supplier.
The following products contain natural grain alcohol or corn oil:
- Nourishing Body Creams
- Hand Buttercreams
- Whipped Body Butters
- Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidants Ultra Riche PM Treatments
- Hand Sanitizer Sprays
Our natural grain alcohol is less abrasive toward the skin and hair than synthetic alcohols, plus it helps the skin retain moisture when used in a proper proportion in the formula. The grain alcohol is essential for some formulas as a binding and absorption agent for some of our extract ingredients. Most of our extracts are pure powdered forms, but some of our extracts need a base of glycerine or grain alcohol. We always specify in the ingredients list when natural grain alcohol is used as an extract base!
Quite a few products contain nuts in oil, powder, and other forms. Some of the most common nuts used are hazelnut, almond, shea butter, cocoa powder, and argan oil. Most of our products are manufactured in a single facility, so all products may contain traces of nuts. If you have a nut allergy or sensitivity, we recommend you consult the ingredients list for each product, and proceed with discretion.
Nickel is not an added ingredient in any of our product formulations, and we test for the purity of every raw ingredient. Since nickel is a natural metal that can be found in the same sources as mica, we do not recommend anyone with a sensitivity to use products that contain mica.
We never use synthetic fragrances or perfumes in our products. All scents are naturally extracted or distilled from plant-based sources.
