Neal's Yard Remedies
When it comes to the ingredients in their products, Neal’s Yard Remedies pride themselves on honesty, integrity and transparency.
They make their products with the maximum organic, natural and wild ingredients, and carefully select other functional ingredients (detergents, emulsifiers, surfactants etc) with a view to safety, efficacy and biodegradability. The entire range makes use of high quality organic plant-based ingredients, and they fully disclose ingredient information with customers, both online and, where space allows, on product packaging.
Neal's Yard Remedies believe that what you leave out of a product can be as important as what you put in. Here's just a few of the ingredients you won't find in any of their products, and why:
No silicones - they coat skin, and impede its natural function
No mineral oils - derived from petroleum, and have a tendency to block the skin
No parabens - these are linked to hormonal imbalances
No GM ingredients - not enough is known about possible long-term implications
No phthalates - it's reported they have toxic impact on humans and animal life
No propylene glycol - derived from petroleum
No animal testing - unnecessary and cruel
No DEA - associated with known carcinogens
No EDTA - (powerful metal chelator), and doesn’t biodegrade readily
No acrylates - derived from petroleum
No nano - not enough is known about its long term implications
No BHT - linked to breathing and lung impairment
