Skin Free Change in Formulations Effective Immediately

In order to continue to make the absolutely safest and most non-toxic products that we possible can, we are making the following formulation changes:

1) We will remove Sodium Borate from our Liquid Soap and any of the Scrubs that have our Liquid Soap blended in them. We initially began using this chemical to adjust the pH of our Liquid Soap, but it's toxicity rating is too high. We will just be patient and let our soap cure the old fashion way.

2) We will no longer be using Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate as a preservative.We originally chose this preservative because of it's low rating on the Environmental Working Group's database. It was rated at "1". It's rating has now increased due to possible chemical change into formaldehyde. We will now use a combination
of Polyaminopropyl Biguanide and Potassium Sorbate whenever we need to use a preservative.

Polyaminopropyl Biguanide is a gentle, paraben-free and formaldehyde-free preservative used in baby wipes and contact lens solution. Potassium Sorbate is a food grade preservative used as an anti-fungal.

We hope this makes you feel a little bit safer!
