Benefits of Waterless Skincare

You might be surprised to learn that most beauty products contain up to 80% water as their main ingredient. Our entire range is waterless. Here’s why…..

No need for preservatives

In waterless skincare the need for harsh chemical preservatives, such as parabens, is eliminated. The presence of water in skincare encourages bacterial growth which means the products require a plethora of chemicals and preservatives to keep them safe to use and extend their shelf life.

More concentrated formula

Removing water from the jar also frees up space for more active ingredients. Our formulations are packed with plant extracts, oils and omega-rich butters. These potent blends mean you don’t need to use a lot of product to see results.

Better for the environment

You can be assured that by using our skincare range you are doing your bit to help reduce the pressure on our Earth’s precious water reserves.

Without the need for complicated airless plastics and pumps, our glass jars are fully recyclable to reduce their impact on the environment.

Better suitability for all skin types

Waterless products are more efficient at protecting the skin than water based products. Without preservatives and water, the risk of irritations or allergic reactions is significantly reduced.
