Why Clean Beauty Matters, and Why It Matters To Us!

by Lisa Mazzarella

So, your wellness ritual is on point— yoga, green drinks, weekend hikes, and morning meditations. You take care of your body with nourishing foods. You take care of mind through healthy relationships and mindfulness. BUT your beauty products contain parabens, fragrances, phthalates, formaldehyde, microplastics and a bunch of other yucky stuff—and, that’s a major problem!

Skin is our largest organ. What we put on it matters just as much as what we put in it. It absorbs everything you put on it like a sponge and passes it through the bloodstream… undoing some of the healthy rituals you work for hard on. Using beauty products filled with toxins can caused hormone disruption (hello, acne) and disease.

This is why our founder, Lisa, made it her mission to deliver honest, clean, nontoxic skincare. Many skincare companies use “clean” and “natural” to describe their products, but Lisa actually proved Karisma to be the ultimate clean skincare by:

Using Ingredients With Integrity:

Clean is not just a marketing trigger word for us. It is our standard. Our integrity. Our truth. Our mission. We only source the highest quality organic and natural ingredients. You’ll likely know what each ingredient is because we were able to only common words, and if you don’t, just ask us. We’re an open book. Just ask the EWG team! 

Passing the EWG Verification: This mission of The Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. The EWG has the strictest standards for health and are the best way to prove a product is truly clean. As of today, only 1620 personal care and cleaning products have been approved for the EWG VERIFIED™ mark—and four of those include Karisma! Our Ultimate Face Oil, Quickie-Honey Mask, Face Polish, and Body Sheen Oil have all passed the EWG stringent testing. We are honored to be a part of the EWG community.  

Keeping It Classy With Glass: Plastic bottles can leach toxic chemicals like BPA and phthalates into your skincare products. Glass is nontoxic, impermeable and nonporous. In a nutshell, glass bottles are better for your skin and better for the environment. To learn more about how plastic bottles can affect your health, see our Microplastics blog. 

As always, we wish you a beautiful and glowing day!

Love,
Team Karimsa
