Most bath and body products are loaded with chemicals that can harm your health. Considering how harmful these ingredients are to the environment, just think of what they are doing to you!
Our handmade soaps, bath bombs and natural skin care products do not contain the following ingredients, commonly found in personal care products from other "natural" brands.
PARABENS: The most common type of preservative used in bodycare products. Some studies have linked parabens to breast cancer. We use paraben-free preservatives in our products. We offer one of the largest selection of paraben free bath and body products
SODIUM LAURYL / LAURETH SULFATE (SLS):A foaming agent used in personal care items such as soaps, toothpaste, shampoos, mouthwash, etc. SLS was originally designed to strip oil and grease from driveways. It removes moisture from the skin and is a proven skin irritant. We use vegetable oils instead of SLS to create a fluffy lather in our products.
Fragrance Oils are synthetic chemicals used to add scent to bath and body products. They are formulated to provide a lasting fragrance to bath products. Since fragrance oils are not natural, they add chemicals to otherwise natural bath and body products. Adding too much fragrance oil to a natural skin care product can affect its consistency and efficacy. Essential oils are plant extracts with aromatherapy and therapeutic properties. Some people prefer to use essential oils rather than fragrance oils to keep their bath products as natural as possible. While some essential oils smell great, they are not intended for fragrancing purposes and their scent can fade over time. Essential oils should be used to instill therapeutic properties to natural skin care products, but even this can be over-done. Since they are basically nature's opiates, too much or too many essential oils can be harmful for your health. We do not recommend essential oils to be used in products for pregnant women, for this reason.
Our handmade soaps and bath bombs contain combinations of fragrance oils and essential oils. Our guarantee is that our bath and body products will be at least 95% natural, even with a limited amount of synthetic fragrance oil. Our all natural skin care products can be customized with your preference of fragrance or essential oils. We will put some limitations on quantity of each used, when it could potentially affect product performance or be harmful to your health.
The term "natural" is over-used in the personal care industry. While "organic" products have certain criteria, "natural" is fairly loosely-defined and is not regulated by the FDA.
It is challenging for products to be 100% natural, since preservatives, stabilizers and emulsifiers are required to improve shelf-life and maintain product consistency. But manufacturers can choose safer ingredients in our products.
We guarantee Naked's formulations to be least 95% natural. Where we have to use chemicals, we use those that do not have potentially serious health risks.
We advise our guests to read the ingredient labels on their personal care products for a healthier lifestyle. After all, our skin is our largest organ and over 60% of what we put on it ends up in our body. For your convenience, we have provided a list of our ingredients, under our product tab, so that you can see what goes into our handmade soaps, bath bombs, and all natural skin care products.
