Our skin is the largest organ on the body, and thus anything we apply to it must be chosen carefully for their qualities and effects. Taiga Beauty has its own established standard for quality and the choice of ingredients, which is how we define "natural" - a word often misused as it is not subject to regulation. Our standard includes restrictions on ingredients used and practices employed during formulation.
We believe in using ingredients that are respectfully gathered and do not deplete natural resources.
Not tested on animals
We don't make products we wouldn't simply try on ourselves.
No Synthetic Fragrances
We use skin-safe quantities of naturally derived fragrances
Pthalates have been linked to many health problems - this is not a chance we are willing to take.
Linked to breast cancer, this is also a strong NO from us.
Our products are earthy and natural, but we do occasionally include carefully curated non-botanical ingredients to provide effective and balanced formulas that are lovely for our skin. (We do avoid really bad-for-us ingredients like fermaldehyde, phtalates, toluene, talc, parabens, hydroquinones, petroleum, SLS/SLES, triclosan, polyethylene glycol, and oxybenzone.)
Plants and science can work together beautifully and provide high-performance, multi-tasking products that are transformative, nourishing, soothing, and protective. Just take a look at Joanna's before and after!
The ingredients are purchased thoughtfully so they are ethically sourced as well as organic and wild-harvested where possible - and as local as we can get. We make sure not to use other unsustainable ingredients
