As i’m sure all you clued up people know, all ingredients exist in a chemical state, meaning that plant based natural ingredients are still ‘chemicals’, however, our concern is with synthetic/man made/ processed chemicals. Some harmful chemicals may be naturally occurring like formaldehyde, and some may be completely manufactured like Paraffin. Science has proven that non plant based chemicals will have fewer benefits for us. If 60% of what we put on our skin ends up in our blood stream, then we need to (as much as possible) try to ensure that what we place on our skin supports and promotes our health. Synthetic and harmful chemicals have been linked to harsh skin conditions as well as more dangerous effects on the body. In 2011, the US National Toxicology Program described formaldehyde as “known to be a human carcinogen”, yet it’s found readily in cosmetics globally. We at Scrummy U would rather not take the risk thank you! We only have one body, so we want to help you cherish yours and your loved ones as best as you can.
Go well. x
