The Science Behind Clean and Plant-Based Beauty

So, what exactly is "clean beauty?"

Clean beauty is a movement that emphasizes the use of beauty products that are made with non-toxic and environmentally friendly ingredients. Clean beauty promotes transparency in labeling, avoids harmful chemicals, and prioritizes sustainable practices. Clean beauty products are often free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances. By choosing clean beauty, individuals aim to prioritize their health and the well-being of the planet. Within clean beauty, brands often choose to use plant-based or natural ingredients as they are better for sensitive skin, eco-friendly, and less comedogenic. Consumers often assume cosmetic products are tested for safety, but the FDA does not pre-approve cosmetics or ingredients unless it's a color additive. Clean beauty products are often free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, PPDs, and synthetic fragrances. Speaking of PPDs...

Our Commitment to Clean Beauty

Here at Godefroy, we strive to create products using clean, natural ingredients to help customers receive the benefits from their clean elements. Our Instant Eyebrow Tint and Double Lash and Brow Growth Serum are made with plant extracts and other natural ingredients. The instant tint is one of our vegan products that allows for a safe, gentle, and effective at-home tinting experience. By using vegan ingredients, there are no harsh chemicals present to harm your skin, so our tint is perfect for those with sensitive skin. Now, our growth serum is specifically made with 100% cold-pressed castor oil, which has the ability to penetrate deeply into the hair and skin follicles, increasing blood circulation and encouraging growth and thickness for longer fuller lashes. There are several benefits to castor oil. For instance, castor oil is a natural ingredient that is safe to use around your eyes and has moisturizing and strengthening nutrients to prevent breaking, dry hair.

The Downside of Chemicals in Makeup Products

When buying makeup, we don’t really look closely at the ingredients. Some makeup or cosmetic products here in the US contain harsh chemicals that might be affecting your skin without you even realizing it. Certain chemicals like fragrances and synthetic dyes can result in irritation, inflammation, and itching, especially if you have sensitive skin. Preservatives like parabens can even trigger allergic reactions like rashes, swelling, and blistering. Also, if you struggle with breakouts and acne, your makeup’s ingredients, like certain silicones and waxes, can be the cause of clogging your pores. So, if you have been struggling with any of these issues, it might be good to try out beauty choices that prioritize clean, vegan ingredients. By choosing clean beauty, you will not only be taking care of the environment but also your well-being and health. Choose makeup/cosmetics products made with clean, plant-based ingredients to embrace your commitment to self-love and a healthy lifestyle! Thanks for reading :)
