Why we are safer than traditional products

Benefits of natural products
LIFE and healthier skin! We know the general benefits of aloe vera- one of the main ingredients in all of our products- but imagine using this and other plant extracts on acne ridden skin, scarred skin, rough, dry, or peeling skin. Imagine the lifelong changes you could endure, just by switching to organic products!
What makes us unique compared to other natural companies?
Our products stand out from other natural skincare products. Products are created from over 25 different herbs essential to your health including Dong Quai and Ashwagandha. On top of the numerous natural herbs that we have shipped from indigenous countries, we add vitamins and minerals in their purest form for maximum benefits.
We don’t use any perfumes! Our scents are blends of various organic therapeutic grade essential oils, not FRAGRANCE OILS. These fragrances are not only plant based, but the scent lasts longer than scents in chemically modified products.
A few things to look out for when purchasing essential oils:
Botanical name as well as its common name
Non plastic bottles
Organic, unsprayed, wildcrafted
Alcohol- Do you ever notice how much alcohol dries your skin out?
Isopropyl Alcohol: Isopropyl alcohol, or isopropanol, is a harmful and unnecessary ingredient used in many skin care products. It has no nourishing qualities, it can lead to dry, flaky skin and actually encourage acne. It is a type of denatured alcohol prepared from a special solution consisting of roughly 70 percent pure ethanol or isopropyl alcohol in its concentrated form.
Instead, Root&Beyond uses non-denatured alcohol, as its organic properties have not been stripped. It cleans better and will not harm your skin if used in moderation, as opposed to store bought alcohol, that will in time cause serious damage, even when used in moderation.
We do not use lye. Lye or Sodium Hydroxide can burn holes in clothes, leave burn marks on skin, cause blindness, or death if ingested. Lye is presumably safe once saponified, but we refrain from using it in any of our products.
Harmful ingredients found in most common products:
Parabens- some parabens can lead to various cancers- especially breast cancer.
Synthetic colors are a human carcinogen, a skin irritant, and are linked to ADHD.
Fragrances- associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and potential effects on the reproductive system. They can be found in many products such as perfume, cologne, conditioner, shampoo, body wash and moisturizers.
Phthalates A group of chemicals used in hundreds of products to increase the flexibility and softness of plastics. linked to increased risk of breast cancer, early breast development in girls, and reproductive birth defects in males and females.
Triclosan- contributes to making bacteria antibiotic-resistant. There also wasn’t enough supporting evidence that washing with antibacterial soaps containing triclosan provides any benefit over washing with regular soap and water. Tricolson can be found in toothpastes, antibacterial soaps and deodorants.
Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) / Sodium laureth sulfate (SLES)- This surfactant can be found in more than 90 percent of personal care and cleaning products (think foaming products). SLS’s are known to be skin, lung, and eye irritants. A major concern about SLS is its potential to interact and combine with other chemicals to form nitrosamines, a carcinogen. These combinations can lead to a host of other issues like kidney and respiratory damage. They can be found in shampoo, body wash/cleanser, mascara, and acne treatment.
Formaldehyde- Formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives (FRP’s) preservatives are used in many cosmetic products to help prevent bacteria growth. This chemical was deemed as a human carcinogen by The International Agency for Research on Carcinogens (IARC) and has been linked to occupational related cancers: nasal and nasopharyngeal. It is known to cause allergic skin reactions and it may also be harmful to the immune system. It can be found in nail polish, body washes, conditioners, shampoos, cleansers, eye shadows, nail polish treatments.
Toluene- A petrochemical derived from petroleum or coal tar sources. You may see it on labels listed as benzene, toluol, phenylmethane, methylbenzene. Toluene is a potent solvent able to dissolve paint and paint thinner. It can affect your respiratory system, cause nausea and irritate your skin. Expecting mothers should avoid exposure to toluene vapors as it may cause developmental damage in the fetus. Toluene has also been linked to immune system toxicity. It can be found in nail polish, nail treatments and hair color/bleaching products.
Propylene glycol- a small organic alcohol commonly used as a skin-conditioning agent. It’s classified as a skin irritant and penetrator. It has been associated with causing dermatitis as well as hives in humans — these sensitization effects can be manifested at propylene glycol concentrations as low as 2 percent. It can be found in moisturizers, sunscreen, makeup products, conditioners, shampoo and hair sprays.
Sunscreen chemicals- function as a sunscreen agent, to absorb ultraviolet light. These chemicals are endocrine disruptors and are believed to be easily absorbed into the body. They may also cause cellular damage and cancer in the body. Common names are benzophenone, PABA, avobenzone, homosalate and ethoxycinnmate. They can be found in sunscreen products.
