Skincare is food for your skin—and the best food is freshly prepared.
Nuworld Botanicals is a Canadian artisan Aromatherapy company based in Oakville, Ontario. We specialize in small-batch 100% natural Aromatherapy and Raw Skincare. We use strictly raw, organic and wild-crafted ingredients because they offer the most purity and the most abundant nutrients for our skin and overall well-being. All of our products are hand-crafted fresh daily by our expert Mixologists inside our kitchen-lab concept store in Oakville. This provides our customers with maximum freshness, efficacy and 100% ingredient transparency. Today, our products are sold in Whole Foods Market in Ontario, Well.ca and Chapters Indigo stores across Canada.
“The reason I started making the products in my own kitchen 7 years ago was to AVOID harmful and toxic chemicals in skincare, triggering everything from migraines to skin rashes to eczema. Once I became a better label-reader, I got inspired to create 100% 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 your 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 adverse 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 use sustainably sourced, organically grown and wild-crafted ingredients like cold-pressed plant oils, raw and exotic plant butters, mineral salts and clays from the earth and sea, and 100% pure therapeutic-grade organic essential oils.
Our flagship store in Oakville resembles more of a raw juice bar where you can choose from our “a la carte” menu of super-food ingredients like green tea extract, seabuckthorn oil, mango extract and pomegranate to craft the perfect skincare recipe. It’s true what they say, good things really do come in small batches!
