WHAT IS CLEAN BEAUTY AND HOW SINTRA DOES IT
The name says it all Any beauty products which are clean and free from toxic ingredients can be classified as clean beauty.
In the current market there are many brands claiming Natural,Organic ,Green,Nontoxic But the reality is its very easy to hide the toxic ingredients .
The main culprit in any beauty products is the fragrance oils they use ,This is one loop pole which the companies use effectively There is no regulation currently banning the use of fragrance oils in either soaps or the skin care formulations.These fragrance oils are mystery concoction of undisclosed synthetic chemicals. They do no good to the skin and are highly irritant.
CLEAN BEAUTY IS SIMPLE
Its just few natural ingredients blended together to make a end product.In simple terms clean beauty means non toxic .So rather than going for buzz words like Organic ,Green ,Eco-friendly please read the labels and see what the ingredients are.
WHAT WE DO AT SINTRA
Sintra labelling is simple and clear we have listed all the ingredients used and thats it there is nothing hidden what you see is what you getting.
We dont use any fragrances or parabens or sulphates what we use is 100% natural ingredients which are good for skin.
We use essential oils in the place of fragrances and the percentage we use is very minimal as essential oils can also irritate skin if used excessively
We use amber reusable glass jars for our body butters and cleansing balm as they are the best storage options for products with aromatherapy oils, when stored wrongly the oils can go rancid and irritate the skin.
All our hand made soaps are cured for 4 weeks so that the sodium hydroxide used in the saponification process is completely evaporated and you get a hard bar of soap which lasts longer .Usually cold process soap is ready in a week for use but we take extra precautions by curing it for 4 weeks.
DOES CLEAN BEAUTY HAS TO BE ALL NATURAL?
The answer is no there are many man made natural derivatives which are perfectly safe for skin like sodium coco isethionate which is coconut derived man made surfactant which is perfectly safe when used in recommended levels.There are few surfactants like this derived from coconut oil which are pretty safe and stable to use.
Clean beauty doesnt have to be organic we can achieve clean beauty with keeping the recipe simple and clear and irritant free.
finally please read the product pages of what ever you are buying and read the ingredients carefully.
