GREEN, is our motto
Did you know that your skin absorbs many chemicals more effectively than if taken by mouth ? Transdermal medical patches are a proof ! They have shown to be 95% more effective (easily absorbed) than oral medication (taken by mouth). Is it not important to question what you put on your skin on a daily basis ?
Early 2005, I had lost three dear women in my life to cancer and I was determined to bring SOLUTIONS. In my research, studies were showing how preservatives and other additives in skincare products have been found to be cancer causing, hormone altering, toxic, ... detrimental to human health and ultimately, the environment. These substances are still used by the classic cosmetic industry that pays millions of dollars on enticing commercials to make you believe that you are not enough or beautiful enough, so you have to buy their chemical potions.
A quality product that has natural elements that the skin recognizes is more of a pampering, truly skin nourishing ritual and a gift to planet earth.
At SKINCO Labs, we are committed to bring you, only SAFE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PRODUCTS which yield remarkable results, especially on SENSITIVE, ALLERGIC, PROBLEMATIC and Aging Skin.
Because I wanted to develop truly unique, all natural, performing skin products, a team of bio-chemist, naturopath, aromatherapist, holistic nutritionist and herbalist has contributed to concoct winning, all plant formulations. Proud manufacturer of SAFE COSMETICS, our moto is "contribute to change, spread beauty, do no harm." Using living ingredients such as vegetable and fruit seed oils, flower waters, goat milk and gentle, pure essential oils on living skin is the basis of our success. We believe that “less is more”.

Our beautifying FACIAL bars are never to be compared with soaps. Soaps are harsh because of the chemical content, caustic agents, detergents and the absence of quality oils. Our mild skincare formulation is in a solid cream form because we wanted to do away with preservatives and cumbersome, polluting plastic bottles that are just trashing our oceans. Plus, one minute and you're done ! Our secret formulation and fabrication method helps preserve the quality of our FRESH MILK and BOTANICALS, suspend their synergy until they are revived with water.
ALWAYS FRESH !
Cosmetic products whether natural or synthetic, decay over time because they react with water, air or each other. When active ingredients decay, a product looses its benefits and may even become harmful. Skin care products that you buy in a store were prepared months if not years in advance and some of their active ingredients may have already partly decayed. (Not all products even state the expiration date). Furthermore, when you open a product, the decay will accelerate because its content will be exposed to air. On the other hand, when you create a fresh lather with our 100% natural BOTANICAL bars, you get a fresh product every time and you HELP SAVE our precious WATER !
No petro-chemicals derivatives, pore clogging silicones, no EDTA, no PERFUMES are used either. Just PURE, NATURAL therapeutic BOTANICALS and high quality exotic oils known for ages to nourish and pamper skin. NO artificial colors, artificial fragrances, benzene, bisphenol A, dimethicone, EDTA, formaldehyde, gluten, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), hydrogenated oils, mineral oil, mono-, di-, or triethanolamine (MEA, DEA, TEA), parabens, petrolatum, plastics/phthalates, polyvinyl chlorides (PVCs), polyethylene glycols (PEGs) or 1,4-dioxane, propylene glycol, silicates, silicones, sodium lauryl sulfates (SLSs) or lauryl sulfates.

HELP SAVE THE PLANET
70 million TONS of PLASTIC bottles are thrown in America. Did you know that only 10% are actually RECYCLED ! Each hour, Americans trash 2,5 million bottles that end up in land fills and in the OCEAN ! These bottles take HUNDREDS of YEARS to decompose and animals often mistake them for food like beautiful turtles, albatros which die of malnutrition, their stomach full of undigestable PLASTICS.
In the pacific ocean, the "garbage patch" a plastic island twice the size of the state of TEXAS, has 6 times more plastic than plancton ! !
WHAT ARE WE DOING TO OURSELVES? We may look and smell good but we are killing the very life that sustains us ALL... WATER !
If you are using products that contain cancer causing, hormone disrupting, even toxic ingredients...they end up in the water and pollute. Our products are 100% biodegradable and are skin and earth friendly. Further more, using our facial in a compact bar helps eliminate 10 to 25 plastic bottles per year per household. Our plastic bottles are RECYCLABLE (just remove the label and unscrew components before putting them in the recycling bin).
