There has been a major shift in the beauty industry to create ‘clean’ and ‘non-toxic’ beauty products. While some of the more well-known beauty brands have a hard time shifting all their formulas to totally clean, small indie brands are able to. We have become so much more educated on these ingredients and their affects on our bodies.┬áHere are just a few ingredients that are still allowed to be used in the US, but are banned overseas:

FORMALHYDE

  • Known carcinogen
  • linked to respiratory problems

HYDROQUINONE

  • possible carcinogen

TRICLOSAN

  • possible hormone disruptor

PARABENS

  • possible hormone disruptor
  • possible carcinogen

PHTHALATES

  • could cause potential hormonal health issues

SELENIUM SULFIDE

  • linked to possible tumor growth

QUATERNIUM-15

  • possible carcinogen

I am happy to say you will not find any of these ingredients in any of our Kismet products. You can be confidant in our products that while the US might allow these ingredients, we still have made the choice to not use them.
