It has always been one of our top brand priorities to use only clean and sustainable ingredients that hold up to the industry standards.
We are happy to report that the industry has just hit a new high point with California State Assembly Bill 2762 signed into Law by Gov. Gavin Newsom. This Bill had received wide support from groups including the Environmental Working Group (EWG) as well as Personal Care Products Council (PCPC).
The law provides that starting January 1, 2025 ‘no person or entity shall manufacture, sell, deliver, hold or offer for sale, in commerce any cosmetic product that contains any of the following  intentionally added ingredients’
- Dibutyl phthalate (CAS no. 84-74-2)
- Diethylhexyl phthalate (CAS no. 117-81-7)
- Formaldehyde (CAS no. 50-00-0)
- Paraformaldehyde (CAS no. 30525-89-4)
- Methylene glycol (CAS no. 463-57-0)
- Quaternium-15 (CAS no. 51229-78-8)
- Mercury (CAS no. 7439-97-6)
- Isobutylparaben (CAS no. 4247-02-3)
- Isopropylparaben (CAS no. 4191-73-5)
- m-Phenylenediamine and its salts (CAS no. 108-45-2)
- o-Phenylenediamine and its salts (CAS no. 95-54-5)
- The Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and their salts
While this is currently a California State Law, we consider it a huge step in the right direction to assuring that the Cosmetic Industry Standards are followed. This Law will ensure that various harmful substances are kept out of cosmetic products, especially considering that many of these products are used by women of child bearing age.
Our brand considers it a top priority to comply with Industry Standards. Therefore, none of the ingredients on this list are used in any of our products.
