3.Do your products contain parabens or phthalates?

4. Is mineral oil bad? I see it in other baby products
Mineral oil is an entirely safe ingredient according to the FDA guidelines. However, we prefer to spend on Jojoba oil as it is as close to skins natural oil as you can get, meaning it can be absorbed quickly without greasiness. It also offers antioxidant protection and has anti-inflammatory properties to help soothe skin
5. Are your products organic?
There are many definitions of organic products. We are not certified organic however we can assure you that our products use natural or nature-inspired ingredients. Our formulations do not contain additives meaning they are free of artificial colour, artificial fragrance, drying alcohol and parabens. Our ingredients are carefully selected and sourced from quality conscientious origins. We carefully select and combine raw materials that have been approved by Japan.
6. Do your products contain preservatives?
Yes, we do as it is important to keep our products safe and fresh for use. We use the preservative phenoxyethanol, a gentle preservative to fight bacteria and prevent mould in our products. It can be found naturally in Gyokuro, a type of Japanese green tea. However, we use the lab-made version, a 'nature identical' chemical suitable for baby skin. It is a safe preservative that is used in the neonatal wards. The FDA and Japan Ministry of Health and Welfare have limited its use to 1%. Our formulas use 0.23%
7. Are your products safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding?
Yes, our products are safe pregnant and breastfeeding women
8. Are your products alcohol-free?
