When you hear the phrase 'naturally derived' in terms of ingredients and the formulations of your grooming products, do you know why it's better to use Naturally Derived ingredients?
An ingredient is referred to as ‘naturally derived’ when the natural ingredient is treated to access other properties of the natural raw material; for example, getting natural fatty acids and natural fatty alcohols.
Harmful artificial ingredients such as Parabens, Sulphates and Petrochemicals can place an unnecessary burden on the body’s detoxification process and our vital organs, including the skin, which over time may be linked to negative effects on your wellbeing. The use of plant-based & naturally derived ingredients like those found in ManCave products means less harmful Parabens, Sulphates and Petrochemicals are absorbed into our bodies.
What’s more, the products we choose to put onto our skin will eventually end up in soil or waterways, meaning your choice of product also has more of an impact on the environment than you might think. For example, microbeads (tiny pieces of plastic found in everyday cosmetic products) contribute heavily to the plastic pollution that’s affecting hundreds of marine life species. That’s why we use an alternative natural exfoliant in our Olivestone Face Scrub that’s just as effective as microbeads but without the damaging consequences.
