When you’re making real skincare for real people, you’ve got to get real about your ingredients.
So, let’s get real.
At SKINTRADE we create our formulas using a mix of organic and naturally derived ingredients. All of our products are vegan-friendly (no animal testing or ingredients), and contain no artificial colours or fragrances, soaps, parabens, SLS, SLES, EDTA, or palm oil. We trust in the restorative properties of aromatherapy and essential oils, which form the base of all our products.
Yet you’ll never hear us saying our products are “all natural”, and here’s why.
NATURAL refers to something that exists in or is derived from nature; not made or caused by mankind.
NATURALLY DERIVED refers to ingredients that started their life as a whole plant and/or mineral, and have been transformed in some way to reach their final form.
SKINTRADE products contain a blend of botanical and naturally derived ingredients, all of which have been formulated to ensure you get the cleanest all over clean, without any nasty synthetics. As with any product you apply to your skin, you need to be mindful of any skin conditions or sensitivities that may cause an adverse reaction. As always, use only as directed and if irritation occurs discontinue use.
The naturally derived, industry standard ingredients listed below can be found in all of our washes, and are approved for use by government standards and regulatory bodies. For a complete list of all ingredients please refer to the individual product labels.
A gentle cleansing agent, typically found in foaming and cleansing products; especially designed for fragile or sensitive skin. Coco Glucoside is a combination of coconut-based fatty alcohols and glucose.
A surfactant derived from coconut oil, and a common ingredient found in many liquid cleaners. This ingredient allows water to wash away oil and dirt, leaving your skin fresh and clean.
A skin-replenishing and restoring ingredient which occurs naturally in the skin. It is one of the many substances in the skin that helps maintain a healthy look and feel, and defends against dryness.
Composed of sugar residues, Xanthan Gum is an effective natural emulsifier and acts as a viscosity agent in personal care products.
An emollient that makes skin soft and smooth. Glyceryl Caprylate also acts as an emulsifier and prevents the liquids and oils contained in a product from separating.
Found naturally in cranberries, prunes, plums, cinnamon, ripe cloves, and apples. Sodium Benzoate is used as a preservative in cosmetics and personal care products.
A mild preservative used in cosmetic and skin care formulas as a paraben alternative to minimise the growth of microorganisms and prevent products from spoiling.
An organic acid found most abundantly, and not surprisingly, in citrus fruit. Citric Acid is widely used as an acidulent in creams, gels, and liquids. It works to adjust skin acidity and promote skin renewal.
