"What We Don't Love"

Skincare's most exclusive club

Clean beauty is equally about what is allowed and what is not. Not every ingredient makes the cut. We believe in delivering products that use high quality ingredients, which are developed using standards with the highest integrity. This is our promise to consumers, and we believe the EU standards help us deliver on that promise.

Our standards and commitment to our customers is something you'll never have to worry about that is why it is an obvious choice that Better Organic Skincare has decided to follow the EU framework when evaluating product/ingredient quality.

Below, we're highlighting a list of ingredients that will never, ever be found in our products. For a full, ever-growing list of “What We Don’t” that reflect our ingredient safety standards, you can also visit the EU's 1,328 banned ingredients list (located in Annex II), which we adhere to as well.
