Ellen Lange is Clean

 Skin, our biggest organ, is like a body-wide sponge, so many of us are conscious about any skin care product that uses the term “chemical”. But should we fear any skin product with chemicals?

What does chemical-free really mean?

Chemical-free labels sound great, but they are slightly misleading. Let's get the facts out there--everything, including clean skin care products and the plant-based ingredients, are chemicals. You might even see on the label a chemical looking name and in parentheses next to it the commonly used name (like butanoic acid = coconut oil). 

Preservatives are important

Natural products may especially need some type of preservative. If not, microbes (bacteria, fungi, mold, etc.) can grow to unhealthy levels and make a product spoil, even if you can’t see or smell it. This is particularly the case with products that contain or come into contact with water or that are put close to our eyes.

Peels are clean skin care 

Though often time people see the word “chemical” in connection with skin peels, there is no need to be alarmed. The main ingredient in Ellen Lange Retexturizing Peel, glycolic acid, is derived from something most of us eat every day—sugar cane. The benefits and effects of this ingredient are wonderful including softening wrinkles and fine lines, acne control, helping fade skin discoloration from age or the sun, freshening dull skin, and more.
