We source our ingredients from some of the best organic growers, distillers, suppliers and farmers from around the world. We use strictly cruelty-free, organic and wild-crafted and ingredients because they offer the most purity and abundant nutrients for our skin.
The reason I started making natural skincare products in my own kitchen (about 8 years ago) was to avoid harmful and toxic chemicals in mainstream skincare products triggering everything from migraines to skin rashes to eczema (namely parfum/fragrance, BHA/BHT, PEG’s, petrolatum, parabens, SLS and triclosan). It was only after I became a better label-reader, researched and understood the ingredients I was putting on my skin, that I became inspired to create clean non-toxic skincare and start living the change I wanted to see in the beauty industry.
A really good place for you to read up about toxic chemical ingredients in skincare products is the ‘Dirty Dozen‘ – 12 cosmetic chemicals to avoid by the David Suzuki Foundation. Did you know… One in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, and hormone disruptors. Many products include plasticizers (chemicals that keep concrete soft), degreasers (used to get grime off auto parts), and surfactants (they reduce surface tension in water, like in paint and inks). Imagine what that does to your skin, and to the environment. The term “fragrance” or “parfum” usually represents a complex mixture of dozens of chemicals and individual fragrance ingredients that have been associated with cancer and neurotoxicity among other adver
se health effects including headaches, migraines, skin irritations and asthma. Some 3,000 chemicals are used as fragrances and many of these unlisted ingredients are carcinogens. Manufacturers are not required to list all of the chemicals in their fragrance because it’s considered ‘trade secrets’.
At Nuworld Botanicals, we only work with one chemist– and that’s Mother Nature.
We hope you enjoy our fresh-batch products and we look forward to blending with you!
