Brand claims are a big deal. They tell you what a brand stands for and the ingredients that go into a product. At Bean Body, we have made a pretty big deal of making sure we stay as natural as possible, keeping nasty ingredients out and ensuring that our products are never tested on animals.
Here are the claims we stand by and things to look out for when choosing cosmetics –
Vegan-Friendly Product – many beauty products contain a surprising amount of animal derivatives. At Bean HQ, we wanted to support our vegan friends and make sure that our products were safe for their use.
Cruelty-Free – Bean Body is proudly a cruelty-free brand. According to Choose Cruelty-Free over, 200,000 animals suffer and die from cosmetics worldwide each year. Sadly this includes animals that are used for products and testing. As a consumer, always be aware of brands that are cruelty-free and make them your first choice. Bean Body always has and always will be dedicated to cruelty-free products.
No Parabens – parabens have been introduced to help prolong the shelf life of products, acting as a preservative system. Unfortunately, parabens are rather aggressive and tests have shown that they have been able to penetrate the skin and embed themselves within the tissue. It is believed that parabens disrupt hormones and can mimic oestrogen within the body. This is troublesome as excess oestrogen has been linked to certain types of breast cancers and parabens have also been found in breast tumours. Parabens have also been linked to reproductive issues.
No GMO – GMO literally stands for ‘genetically modified organisms’. And for us “non- scientists” out there, that means – organisms that are created in a lab through the process of changing the genetic makeup of organisms. What a mouthful. In essence, GMOs are not considered safe as studies have shown that they may cause aging, immune disorders and fertility issues – to name a few.
Contains Natural Ingredients– this one speaks for itself. Bean Body is proud to use plenty of natural ingredients to promote a safe and natural product that our skin loves.
We hope this helps you start to navigate the beauty space. Look after yourself and make sure you are aware of the brand claims products are making.
