Did you know that mainstream skin care products often contain a slew of harsh chemicals, fillers, preservatives, and even ingredients that are banned in other countries? The truth is that subpar skin care can do a lot worse than fail to deliver great results; it can harm your skin and your body. The body absorbs up to 60% of what you apply to your skin; if your skin care contains dangerous ingredients, you could be risking so much more than the appearance of your skin.
At Raw Essentials, we believe that skin care should promote overall health as well as beauty. One of the ways we strive to create healthier skin is by using raw active ingredients. Why Raw? As defined in the dictionary, raw means, “unadulterated; in its natural state; alive”. What could be more health-promoting than nourishing ingredients delivered to your skin in their natural, alive state?
In order to maintain an ingredient’s raw state, it must never be heated above 115°. Raw Essentials’ products are not “cooked” in the same way that mainstream products are; instead, they’re carefully formulated and even packaged to never reach a temperature above 115°. This means that the ingredients retain every natural vitamin, nutrient, mineral, and skin care antioxidant, which are then able to heal, nourish, and protect your skin.
In addition to healthy raw skin care ingredients, Raw Essentials never uses sulfates, petroleum, synthetic preservatives, detergents, GMOs, or artificial colors and fragrances. This ensures safe, gentle use, even for sensitive skin types!
To sum up what we believe at Raw Essentials, here’s a look at the company practices we’ve promised to follow to ensure the best products for our customers:
1. We use 100% raw active ingredients.
2. We use ingredients that are as close to their unadulterated, alive state as possible.
3. We never use chemicals or synthetic ingredients.
4. We use a 100% natural preservative systems and will never use parabens.
5. Our products are cruelty free.
