Toxic beauty / Are your personal care products putting your health at risk?

Toxic beauty / Are your personal care products putting your health at risk?

With the ubiquity of harmful chemicals like parabens to phthalates, it can be difficult to navigate all of the toxic skincare ingredients to avoid. At the BUZZ we care about these ingredients, how often we use them, how harmful they can be short-term and long term- and made a decision to remain CLEAN. When designing our hero-product, we designed a skin mist that hydrates skin AND repels insects!!!  Choosing to formulate NON-TOXIC & Deet-free products is a feat. Extensive education on our end and now education the consumer is a must. We use only clean ingredients ( nothing from the dirty ingredient list). We suggest always reading the back labels of your products and understand them too! 

 Check out this link below with some detailed information that influenced how we curate our products and formulation.

TOXICS 101
TOXICS 101

First of all, let's clear up some misconceptions about the term “toxin” itself. “Toxin” technically refers to a naturally occurring chemical (produced by a plant or animal). When discussing problematic (and usually synthetic) chemicals in consumer products, the terms "toxicants", "toxics", or "toxic chemicals" are more accurate - so these are the terms we’re going to stick to in this post.

Our 'Never List': Artificial Colors, Artificial Fragrance, MEA (Monoethanolamine), DEA (Diethanolamine), or TEA (Triethanolamine) derivatives, Parabens, PEG Compounds, Phthalates, Silicones, Sulfates

We know it’s a lot to take in, and also a little scary! We don’t yet have perfect knowledge here, but we’re doing our best to find “the truth” - as much as that’s possible - and we’re committed to sharing our learnings as we go (please chime in if you have any questions or comments or something to add!).
