What Makes Us Different
The Skin Curator's collection comprises products that are held to a higher standard.
With the information overload on skin care products available online and the sensational claims brands often make, it becomes difficult for consumers to know which products live up to their claims.
Steer clear of excessive chemicals
In addition, the excessive chemicals used in beauty products is astounding and most consumers want to steer clear of these ingredients. To do so would require the consumer to become versed in scientific terms and commit to thorough research in chemicals and biology in order to understand which products are safe to use and which products should be eliminated.
Clean Beauty is about safety over source
That includes both natural and synthetic materials. Not all natural ingredients are safe and not all synthetic ingredients are toxic. Clean Beauty brands are focused on not using ingredients that are known to be harmful or irritating but rather ones that are safe and effective.
Our Promise to you
