About Lynn's Lavender Luxury Personal Care Products
When I started this line, I put a lot of time and energy into researching what makes skincare products good—or bad.
What’s most important to me is that plants are grown in a sustainable plan. Essentially that means without unnecessary pesticides, herbicides and what I call earthicides. We all want to protect our earth and treat her with the care she deserves—sort of like the way we want to take care of ourselves. It includes growing our soil (yes, you can actually grow and improve your soil over time) and cherishing our water supplies.
And in our bodycare products we take the same approach.
Right now there’s a lot of debate about the use of Paraben as a preservative. Actually, the panel is still out on this one. But just in case, we have chosen to not use Paraben as a preservative in our products whenever possible. Instead we use ingredients that give us the same result without the concerns.
The real issue with preservatives is a safety one. While our products are made in a clean lab environment, we know that when you get them home you’ll probably keep them in your bathroom, on your counters, and wherever else you keep your beauty stash. Now, this is not a comment on your housekeeping, but… No matter how you try, your home is not a sterile lab environment. Your shower and bathroom have moisture, your home airborne particles, and so it goes. We don’t want you to open one of your favorite products from Lynn’s Lavender and discover it’s also a favorite of some airborne particle or mold or whatever else has decided to land there. So, we put in preservatives to keep you safe from invasion. We’ll let those molds, etc. set up colonies elsewhere. (at your neighbors ? )
Bottom line: we decided to make our products as pure and healthy as possible and forgo all the Organic Hoopla. We clearly list the ingredients in our products on our individual product information page, explain what that ingredient is used for, and let you judge for yourself. (You don’t get that off the shelf at the big box stores, do you.)
