The Toxic 12
Clean beauty begins with the ingredients you *won’t find* in any of our products because they’re linked to either health or environmental harm.
The Toxic 12 list covers the ingredients which form the foundation of our Cultivated Clean Standard. We’re proud that all of our brand partners share the same values and agree to not formulate these as intentional ingredients—and to control for their potential contamination, as well.
Why We Avoid the Toxic 12:
Up to 60% of what we put on our skin gets absorbed. That means that the products we put onto our bodies affects our health and overall well being, either negatively or positively. Because the FDA does not regulate skincare, almost any ingredient can be incorporated in formula, some of them being super dangerous to your health.
A lot of ingredients found in traditional skincare products (face washes, lotions, sunscreen, etc) have now been linked to health issues such as allergies, eczema, cancer, hormonal disruption, and reproductive problems. Your skincare can make you sick!
