Do you want fossil fuels on your face? Neither do we! Believe it or not, even luxury skin creams contain chemical fragrances, endocrine disruptors, emulsifiers, preservatives, and even artificial colorants and dyes.

Over 60% of what you put on your face goes directly into your bloodstream. These harmful chemicals can cause skin reactions, inflammation, and premature aging — all in the name of beauty.

We shouldn’t have to choose between products that work and products that poison us. Read on for an extensive list of ingredients we intentionally leave out of our formulas. LXMI’s labs only use ingredients ranked no higher than a “1” on the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Index (the leading non-profit authority on toxic ingredients in skincare) — rendering our skincare safe enough to eat.*

*We had to make one exception to this rule for our sheet masks to be accepted into retail stores, using a preservative labeled as a “2” on the index, the cleanest option out there — as there was no other way to launch a sheet mask! For a moisture delivery without a preservative, use our single-ingredient, organic-certified Pure Nilotica Melt.
