The skin is the body’s largest organ, an active interface between our bodies and the environment. It’s been well documented that what you put on your skin ends up in your bloodstream, so it’s really important to be fully aware of what’s in the products you use. That’s why we use Neal’s Yard Remedies for all of our facials. When it comes to the ingredients in their products, Neal’s Yard Remedies prides themselves on their honesty, integrity and transparency. They are committed to harvesting and sourcing the most sustainable ingredients, creating natural, organic, high-quality products that work. Neal’s Yard Remedies works on the precautionary principle: if there is absolutely any question regarding the consumer safety of a product, it doesn’t make the cut. Plain and simple. Our client’s health and skin is very important to us and we can feel good knowing that they are receiving only the best!
We believe that what you leave out of a product can be as important as what you put in.
Below is a list of a few of the ingredients you won’t find in any of our Neal’s Yard Remedies and why:
