Are all skin care product ingredients certified organic?
All plant-based ingredients are USDA certified organic. Non plant-based ingredients, such as Dead Sea Salt and Moroccan Rhassoul Clay, are from 100% natural sources.
Do you test on animals?
We do not test on animals and have also verified that none of our individual ingredient suppliers are involved in animal testing. We are part of PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies Program and all of our products are Cruelty-Free Certified. You can search for us in their company database, or find us through the following direct link: https://crueltyfree.peta.org/company/the-y-w-laboratory/
Are your products vegan?
All products are vegan, with the exception of the Lip & Body Balm. The balm contains a small amount of cosmetic grade beeswax from a reputable supplier and is ethically sourced.
I have acne-prone skin, can I still use your serum?
Absolutely! Our antioxidant-rich, oil-based, serum is multipurpose and formulated for all skin types. It is composed of fast absorbing, deeply nourishing ingredients that have a low comedogenic rating. This means that they will not clog pores and cause breakouts. In addition, the unique combination helps balance sebum production, which in turn leads to less breakouts over time. It also works wonders on previous damage, helping fade acne scars and hyperpigmentation. Check out our before/after photos on the product page, you won’t be disappointed!
Are your products fragrance-free?
All products are free from synthetic fragrances; they are not scent-free. We do work with a limited selection of organic essential oils known for their multiple therapeutic benefits and recognized as safe for kids. Since the goal is added benefit (not fragrance strength), they are used at carefully calculated concentrations deemed safe for various age groups. Any scent you experience from our products is 100% natural and comes from the blend of ingredients used.
Can babies use your products? What about pregnant women?
All products are 100% non-toxic and safe for the entire family, however, there are a few age restrictions. In general, we do not recommend products containing essential oils for children under 6 months of age, or for pregnant women, due to safety concerns and lack of research in these populations. Please refer to individual product safety information before using. This recommendation only applies to products containing essential oils. Note: Our Lip & Body Balm is completely free of essential oils and ideal for all ages and skin types.
Are the containers reusable/recyclable?
Yes! We worked hard during the research and development phase to find quality containers that would not only do an excellent job preserving our products, but also be non-porous and reusable. Glass jars are food safe and make great snack containers! Plastic containers are BPA-Free and can also be reused or recycled. But wait, there's more! All labels are easy-peel and won't leave all that glue residue behind.
What are the other ingredients listed after the essential oils in some of your products?
The ingredients listed after the essential oils in some of our products are not added ingredients, they are part of the essential oil that must be mentioned per European Union (EU) labeling standards due to their allergen potential in some individuals. All essential oils have numerous naturally occurring constituents that make up their unique profile of fragrance/therapeutic benefits. A list of 26 specific ones (which are found in most essential oils), must be listed on all products sold in the EU if the concentration for a leave-on product exceeds 10 parts per million (ppm), or 0.001%. This labeling standard is not common practice in the US, however, we do intend to eventually make our products available worldwide and feel that this information could potentially benefit all customers with known sensitivities.
