Why are we Excited about Our Labeling?

At ReLiv Organics, we think it is so incredibly important for you as a consumer to know what goes into the products you buy, as well as the love and care that we put into producing each batch!  We are intentional with the way we manufacture our products assuring you that your skin care products are of the highest standards with clean, simple, organic ingredients that are also cruelty-free.

We Use Organic and Wild-Crafted Ingredients

What does this mean? Our products are - 

  • Free from artificial scents, colours, pesticides, parabens, phthalates
  • Free from GMOs
  • Sustainably and Ethically harvested and locally sourced where possible

Even the scent from our products comes from essential oils; not from synthetic fragrances!

Leaping Bunny Certification

The Leaping Bunny logo on our products mean that they are completely cruelty-free, and that no animal testing was done throughout the entire process of product development! We chose to get certified through the Leaping Bunny Program because it is internationally well-recognized and trusted 

 It means a lot for us to have this labeling and we hope that you are excited about it too!

Why don't we use synthetic fragrances?

Environmental Working Group exposed that “fragrances”, for example, a rose fragrance, could be made of 50+ different chemical ingredients (the fragrance industry has 3,100 to choose from). Most of the companies that use “fragrance” on their ingredient list are unlikely to divulge the complete list of natural essences or synthetic chemicals used in their products, which are often petrochemicals.

Another important piece of information to keep in mind are endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs), which are often discussed when talking about pesticides and certain plastics. EDCs have the ability to partially or completely mimic certain hormones in the body, such as reproductive hormones (eg. estrogen). This is vital information to know when discussing skin care products as well. Research has shown that although you are not directly ingesting these products, there is absorption through the skin (eg. through hair follicles), via inhalation (especially with spray-on products) and through close contact with mucous membranes (eg. the mouth and nose).

 In a number of animal and human studies, it has been shown that parabens and phthalates can be absorbed through the skin and found as metabolites in the blood and urine. Additional research has shown that certain synthetic chemicals from skin care products or “fragrance” can accumulate in human fat tissue. Of course, more long-term research needs to be done as we are only at the tip of the iceberg when it comes to knowing more about how these environmental exposures may be affecting us. We know that you care about what you put into and onto your body, from food to personal care products. Knowledge is power, and ReLiv Organics is here to advocate for you and to create products that are safer for you and your family!
