With so many claims of ‘clean’ and ‘natural’, it’s hard to know which products are indeed natural and safe to use since, incredibly, there is no official standard.
There’s ‘clean’ and then there’s clean. Many brands make this claim, but their products still contain ingredients which are known to be harmful to humans and to the environment. From the start, we committed to beyond what is required in the U.S. and have worked to eliminate all ‘dirty’ ingredients from our formulas. As there is no official standard for clean beauty, we have followed Credo’s ‘Dirty List’ as we believe this to be the most stringent benchmark.
Our products are natural, free of harmful toxins that are often found in other skincare products, including: GMOs, Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, PEGs,
One Ocean Beauty formulas are not tested on animals and are cruelty-free. We are proud of our Leaping Bunny certification.
Our products are natural,
free of harmful toxins
Bio-compatible with human skin and composed of small amino acids, fish collagen protects against loss of collagen and oxidative stress, which lead to skin aging.
These are preservatives used to prevent bacteria and mold. Some are linked to skin and breast cancer, reproductive toxicity, hormone disruption, and development disruption.
Genetically modified organisms
These are preservatives used to prevent bacteria and mold. Some are linked to skin and breast cancer, reproductive toxicity, hormone disruption, and developmental disruption
A strong chemical detergent which often contains ethlene glycol and dioxanes, known to cause cancer in humans
These are plasticizing chemicals used to make products more pliable or fragrance adhere to skin. Some are known to be linked to hormone disruption and may cause birth defects. Dibutyl phthalate DBP, for example, is banned in the EU
Polyethylene glycol (PEG compounds) are used in skincare as thickeners, solvents, softeners and moisture carriers. They can be derived from petroleum and can have traces of ethylene oxide and 1,4. dioxane, noted as a probable cause of cancer by the EPA
Calcium Disodium EDTA, Tetrasodium EDTA, Trisodium EDTA, are used as preservatives, stabilizers and binding agents in skincare. They don't absorb well into the skin, but disrupt the surface of skin cells to allow other chemicals to be absorbed. They don't break down in the environment and have been found in water, so are a potential problem for aquatic life.
These are ultra-fine particles small enough to be readily absorbed into the bloodstream, and may penetrate skin, internal organs and even DNA.
May be shown simply as ‘fragrance’ or ‘parfum’ in ingredients lists and may contain hundreds of untested chemicals, including hormone disruptors and allergens plus heavy metals.
A by product of the oil refinery process. This petroleum-based product can be full of harmful cancer-causing chemicals and is banned by the EU. The US does not regulate usage of contaminated petroleum.
