Clean Beauty: Exploring Natural and Organic Skincare Products

Clean Beauty: Exploring Natural and Organic Skincare Products

Before we get into today's topic, we wanted to remind you that it's the first of the month. It's a great time to wash those makeup brushes!

Clean beauty encompasses the use of natural and organic skincare products that prioritize ingredients that are ethically sourced, environmentally friendly, and free from harmful chemicals. Here are key aspects to consider when exploring natural and organic skincare:

  1. Ingredient Transparency: Clean beauty products prioritize ingredient transparency, providing clear and comprehensive information about the ingredients used. Look for products that disclose their ingredient list and avoid those that use vague or misleading terms. Sargent Bubbles provides the ingredients for each product on our website. When possible, we also include the ingredients on the product label. We want you to know what you are putting on your skin!

  2. Natural and Organic Ingredients: Natural skincare products rely on plant-based ingredients derived from nature, while organic products are made from organically grown plants without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. Look for certifications such as USDA Organic or Ecocert to ensure the authenticity of organic claims. Sargent Bubbles uses all-natural and organic ingredients whenever possible. We also source locally when we can.

  3. Avoidance of Harmful Chemicals: Clean beauty products avoid or minimize the use of harsh chemicals like parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances, which may be potentially irritating or harmful to the skin. Opt for products that use clean alternatives and have undergone third-party testing for safety. Sargent Bubbles does not use harmful chemicals in our products. We steer clear of anything harmful. We have a very high threshold for acceptable products, and we would not put anything in our products we don't use ourselves.

  4. Cruelty-Free and Vegan: Clean beauty often aligns with cruelty-free and vegan practices. Look for products that are not tested on animals and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients if those aspects are important to you. Sargent Bubbles never tests on animals - except for our pet products. We test those on the resident pups. We do offer a few vegan options.

  5. Environmental Sustainability: Clean beauty products consider the environmental impact throughout their lifecycle, from ingredient sourcing to packaging. Look for brands prioritizing sustainable practices, such as using recyclable or biodegradable packaging and supporting fair trade or eco-friendly initiatives. Sargent Bubbles locally source our ingredients whenever possible. We have worked on cutting down on our packaging so we are not adding unnecessarily to landfills. All of our packaging is recyclable.

  6. Individual Sensitivities: While natural and organic ingredients are generally well-tolerated, it's essential to consider your individual skin sensitivities and allergies. Patch test new products and consult with a dermatologist if needed. Although Sargent Bubbles is careful not to use harsh or harmful chemicals in our products, some people have naturally sensitive skin. If you fall into this category, it's important you research ingredients, so you don't harm your skin.

  7. Educate Yourself: Understanding ingredient labels, researching brands, and staying informed about industry standards can help you make informed choices in clean beauty. Look for reputable sources of information and consider joining communities or forums that discuss clean beauty topics. We are always available to answer any questions about ingredients - whether they are in our products or you found an ingredient elsewhere and want the facts. We will always tell you the truth about the ingredients. We want you to be wary of unknown products and know what you are putting on your skin.

Remember, clean beauty is not regulated uniformly across regions, so it's essential to do your own research and rely on trusted sources for information. What constitutes clean beauty can vary depending on personal preferences and values. Finding the right natural and organic skincare products that work well for your skin and align with your values can contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable beauty routine.
