We know how hard it can be to find truly safe skin care—after all, that’s how we got our start! Annmarie was fed up by the lack of healthy options, and products that claimed purity but were loaded with harmful ingredients. That’s what drove her to start Annmarie Skin Care and commit to using the safest and purest ingredients available.
Now, we’re thrilled to let you in on a little behind-the-scenes action—we’re partnering with a revolutionary new third-party certification program called MADE SAFE™, and our products are being certified as we speak!
MADE SAFE literally means made with safe ingredients. It means no known carcinogens, behavioral, reproductive, and neurotoxins, hormone disruptors, heavy metals, pesticides, insecticides, flame retardants, toxic solvents, or harmful VOCs are allowed in the product. MADE SAFE scrutinizes each and every ingredient listed, even checking the supply chain to look for possible contamination sources.
So now you don’t just have to take our word for it—we’re undergoing a scientific process ensuring that when we say our products are safe, they really are MADE SAFE. We have never used ingredients that build up in your body or can’t break down in the environment—and we never will. And now we’ll be certified to prove it.
We know, it seems like common sense that these kinds of ingredients should not be allowed in any products. But it’s the wild west when it comes to the skin care industry—there isn’t a law to regulate the chemicals that companies are using in products found commonly on the shelves. Many of them contain ingredients that can prematurely age your skin or contribute to illness, disease, or hormone disruption.
Considering that our skin is our largest organ, absorbing as much as 80% of what we put on it, the last thing you want to do is slather toxic chemicals all over it.
For most people, the problem is that it’s hard to figure out which products contain harmful chemicals and which ones don’t—you almost have a toxicology degree just to go shopping!
That’s the problem that MADE SAFE is here to address. And that is why we’re so proud to join with other personal care, cosmetics, baby, and other household product companies in launching this seal that finally gives you the power to truly protect your health, buy from companies you trust, and ultimately help eliminate toxic chemicals in products altogether.
We’re excited that you’re with us on this next step in revolutionizing healthy skin care! Stay tuned, this spring you’ll be able to see all of our MADE SAFE certified products on our website.
