Our Clean Policy

No PEGs

PEGs (a.k.a. Polyethylene Glycol) are synthetic chemical compounds that function as emollients to help soften and lubricate skin, and as emulsifiers to help water-based and oil-based ingredients mix properly.

No Parabens

Parabens, though a common preservative in skincare products,  are a believed to disrupt hormone function by mimicking oestrogen. Too much oestrogen can trigger an increase in breast cell division, which is why parabens use has been linked to breast cancer and reproductive issues.

No SLS / SLES

SLS and SLES are both surfactants added to many health and beauty products to create foam and offer a cleaning action. Deemed as ‘safe to use’, they have been identified as a skin irritants if left on skin for prolonged periods of time. For people with sensitive skin, sulfates may also clog pores and cause acne.

No Phtalates

Certain phthalates (like Dibutyl Phthalate, aka DBP, or DEHP, and DEP) appear on product labels, but most typically remain unlisted, hiding under the term “fragrance.” Since some phthalates have been linked to hormone disruption, we ask that our brand partners to avoid using them as ingredients altogether.

No Silicones

Silicones in skincare can give you that silky, velvety texture you love so much – making you think it is “working”, however this effect is only temporary. Silicones trap sweat, bacteria and sebum. An you definitely want to avoid if you have acne prone skin of if you care about unnecessary toxic build-up in the environment

No EDTAs

These ingredients are not linked to consumer health issues, but they might be a problem for aquatic life since they don't break down in the environment and have been found in waterways.

No Beeswax

Bee populations are in big trouble, and that doesn’t bode well for plants, agriculture, or humans. In order to reduce our industry’s negative impact, we have avoided its use.

Low Comedogenic Rating

We use non-comedogenic oils, helping moisturize and nourish your skin without clogging your pores. This is particularly important for people with acne-prone skin. Whether you have dry skin, or not, at P U M B B A we want you to feel safe at all times, and for this we only use oils with Comedogenic Ratings between 0 - 2. 

EWG-Safe Ingredients

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is a non-profit organization that validates personal care product ingredients based on their level of toxicity. The group has published a Skin Deep Rating system from 1 to 10.  At P U M B B A  we aim for EWG-safe ingredients with a rating of 1 and a maximum of 3.
