DOUBT FROM THE START

Just like you, we start with a heavy dose of skepticism. The number one question we ask ourselves is if this ingredient is safe to use.

After we look at the safety data on the ingredient, the next big question we ask is: what is the Safe Range for the ingredient? The Safe Range defines how much of this ingredient is actually safe to use for you throughout your life.

We work to determine a Safe Range for each and every ingredient based on a similar process many regulatory agencies and scientific groups use to ensure safety.

While an ingredient might be safe by itself, we also evaluate the safety of our products when we have a mixture of ingredients to confirm their use is not going to cause any unexpected skin or eye irritation.

If we can't conclude the product formula is safe, it won't make it to your shower. We will either reformulate or we won't launch the product.
