Parabens are chemicals used as preservatives by the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries; these materials often cause skin irritation, Contact Dermatitis and Rosacea in people with sensitive skin. All OM products are hand-crafted and chemical-free, which means there are NO Parabens in our skin-friendly bath products … just creative blends of intriguing ingredients made with plenty of tender loving care. When we say "Handmade With Green Karma," we mean it!
Phthalates are industrial chemicals used in beauty products because they cling to the skin, increasing their staying power. Unfortunately, studies have shown that Phthalates can be absorbed through the skin and/or inhaled, leading to liver, kidney, lung and reproductive system damage in animals. Further studies have found that five percent of women aged 20-40 had up to 45 times more Phthalates in their bodies than previously estimated, with some of the highest concentrations in women of child-bearing age! Perhaps this is why these chemicals have been banned for cosmetic use in the European Union since 2003. We at Peace, Love & Green Karma are proud to say that all of our popular bath products are Phthalate-free, just the way they should be!
Sulfates are chemicals used to provide soap and shampoo products with their lathering qualities, but that’s about the only good thing they do. It’s believed sulfates can strip the moisture and oils from the skin and can even cause skin damage and hair loss. This is why we at Peace, Love & Green Karma guarantee that all of our products are 100 percent sulfate-free. And, in keeping with our Vegan world view, our soap products contain plenty of great natural ingredients that deliver a robust and sudsy lather … because soap just wouldn’t be soap without it. Talk about the best of both worlds!
Veganism is the personal choice to refrain from using/consuming animals or animal products in a dietary and/or manufacturing setting. It is our sincere belief that harming animals to obtain ingredients for our products would be unethical and environmentally damaging. That’s why we use only natural, plant-derived elements to create our OM soaps. You reap what you sow, after all … And we wish for nothing less than a bumper crop of Peace, Love and Green Karma for every living thing!
