...because what goes on your skin goes in!
Amanda McGillivray who founded The Natural Skincare Company decided, right from the formation of her business in 2003 that the ingredients used in products she supplied would be as natural and organic as possible, whilst providing a product which was pleasant to use, reasonable in price, and that really worked!
Because up to 60% of what you put onto your skin actually enters your bloodstream, it is as important to use organic chemical free or naturally derived ingredients in your skincare as in the food you eat. At The Natural Skincare Company we study the ingredients lists of any brands we offer to ensure that none of the ingredients are harmful, and if possible, as organic and natural as they can be.
You will not find any products on our website containing ingredients such as parabens, artificial colours, synthetic perfumes, sodium laurel sulphate, mineral oils or sodium laurel sulphate.
The terms 'natural' and 'organic' can sometimes be misunderstood or misused in the beauty industry, so please read below for definitions of natural and organic.
Natural: The classic definition of natural skin care is based on using botanically sourced ingredients currently existing in or formed by nature, without the use of synthetic chemicals, and manufactured in such a way to preserve the integrity of the ingredients. Do not rely on the wording 'natural' when choosing skincare as the word is abused and used in abundance for marketing products with as little as 1% natural ingredients!
Organic: Organic formulations produced without the use of pesticides, artificial fertilisers or synthetic chemicals. To label a product 'organic' or attain organic certification, the whole product has to be a certain percentage of pure organic ingredients. Watch out for brands which claim to be organic, but then only have a small percentage of organic ingredients! A product can contain organic ingredients but also contain many harmful chemical ingredients too.
Ingredients Lists: The higher the ingredient on the list, the higher percentage of that ingredient is in the formulation.
