Beginning with a list of 1,300+ ingredients banned in Europe, Biossance’s Blacklist now totals over 2,000 restricted ingredients, including conflict minerals, parabens and oxybenzone (used in products such as sunscreen and linked to mass die-offs in coral). The result is high-performing products for the skin that are:
Safe for you and the planet
Formulated without synthetic fragrances, parabens, phthalates, or mineral oil
Ideal for all skin types
Dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested.
“Currently, the U.S. has low standards for ingredients formulated into beauty products and we have the opportunity to set the bar higher and also to continue demonstrating that our brand can do well by doing good,” said Caroline Hadfield, SVP-personal care, Amyris “We don’t accept the status quo. We are leading the charge in the movement towards clean beauty by setting our standards high and supporting efforts for change like the Personal Care Products Safety Act.”
