1. We don’t put any glycol form directly into our formulas, but we get several active ingredients dispersed in butylene glycol. The efficacy of the active ingredients is necessary, so we cannot eliminate them, but we can encourage them to change the base to other substances.
2. The glycols are a family of substances that exist in nature, not all of them are petrol derivates. Some of them are of natural origin, while others are synthetic.
3. The glycols may show a light irritating effect when used in high concentrations. That’s why we never exceed a 0.5% for our products. We fully trust the EWG because they are a respectful NGO organization, they value the risk of using substances in skincare. You can take a look at their evaluation risk here.
