The beauty industry is as massive as it can be. Today, there are products designed to suit each skin type and concern. Consumers are spoilt for choices and if that wasn’t confusing enough, there are terms on the labels of these skincare products that add to this confusion. Since you take such good care of your skin it is important to be aware of all these terms and what they mean.
Comedone is a broad term for a pore or a hair follicle which gets blocked by trapped dead skin cells and sebum resulting in whiteheads and blackheads. When a product states it is non-comedogenic it means that the formula won’t have a clogging effect on the skin therefore preventing acne, pimples and blackheads. The Simple Kind To Skin Protecting Light Moisturiser is a non-comedogenic, harsh chemicals free product, suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
If the label on your skincare product reads hypoallergenic it means the formulation is less likely to cause an allergic reaction. Those with sensitive skin type should always opt for a hypoallergenic formula such as the Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water to avoid skin irritation, because they contain fewer allergens or substances that can trigger reaction.
A product that says it is dermatologically tested indicates that it has been assessed to check whether the product can cause potential irritation or reaction. A patch test is conducted on human volunteers where these patches are covered and left on for 24 hours. 48 hours later the volunteer’s skin is studied by an expert to check for any signs of swelling or reaction. The Simple Daily Skin Detox Purifying Facial Wash is a dermatologically tested product that is safe for all skin types and won’t cause any reaction.
No added perfumes
Fragrances can be naturally derived or synthetically created in a lab to curb the unpleasant odour of certain skin care ingredients. However, these artificial fragrances or added perfumes are one of the most common causes of negative reactions on the skin. If you have sensitive skin that easily gets triggered by artificial perfumes and fragrances we suggest using the Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash, this 100% soap free formula will gently wash away dirt and grime to give you clean and fresh skin.
No artificial colours and dyes
Artificial dyes and colours serve no purpose other than making your skincare products look nice, however they can cause skin irritation and that’s a risk you should avoid, particularly if you have sensitive skin. Those with sensitive skin often skip exfoliating because most products are harsh, but the Simple Daily Skin Detox Clear Pore Facial Scrub is different. Formulated with no artificial colours, dyes or other harsh chemicals, this gentle formula is suitable for all skin types.

2) Why is clean beauty important?
Some chemicals that are commonly used in skincare products are not safe for the skin or environment. As the number of skincare brands continues to increase around the world, it is important to turn to clean beauty products that contain no harsh chemicals for our safety and that of the environment.
3) How do you pick clean beauty products?
It's simple, clean beauty products do not contain toxic or harsh ingredients. When buying a product just watch out for ingredients like SLS, paraben, alcohol, artificial fragrance, toluene, etc. These ingredients are not safe for your skin and may cause an allergic reaction, especially if you have sensitive skin.
