We use both, but we make sure the mica is only coated with safe pigments like iron oxides, carmine and tin oxides. We make sure that there is no chromium oxide green, fd&c colors, or coal tar derived dyes used. Because our products are colored, most of them use mica.
We use Certified Organic Fractioned Coconut Oil (MCT oil) in our coconut containing products. This amazing oil has all of the skin-loving benefits of Raw Coconut Oil but without the potential of clogging your pores that can lead to breakouts. MCT oil is coconut oil that has had the heavy, long chain fatty acid removed, resulting in an oil that is lightweight, more shelf-stable, still full of healthy, skin- nourishing fatty acids and is much more easily absorbed. For more info, visit our blog post The truth about coconut oil in skincare & makeup and why we choose to formulate with MCT oil.
FYI: Raw coconut oil does not cause clogged pores or breakouts in everyone. For some it works as a fabulous moisturizer in raw form.
We use absolutely no artificial preservatives!! We use a natural alternative in our cream products called Lactobacillus Ferment & Lactobacillus & Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract (in short, coconut post biotic). It's made just how it sounds...by taking coconut and fermenting it with lactobacillus (non dairy). The results produce a powerful postbiotic ingredient that acts as a completely natural preservative preventing the growth of molds, funguses and bad bacteria. It's why our products are good for atleast 6 months from date of purchase but still contain only clean organic ingredients. This amazing ingredient also has some pretty impressive skincare benefits. For more info on that, read our blog post Ever heard of coconut postbiotics? Here's why we started using this superfood skin ingredient and so should you.
We do test and require MSDS sheets for all of our colorants, clays and mineral ingredients. Because the US lacks guidance on heavy metals limits in cosmetics we go by European Union Standards which does not permit heavy metals in cosmetics except in trace amounts that are not harmful to humans.
