Why isn’t Laurel Skin organically certified?
Although Laurel Skin Care prides itself on using only the best organic ingredients, it is not certified by any governing bodies.
This is because Laurel feels that there is no certifying party that currently matches its level of organic and Biodynamic ingredients or finished formula standards.
In fact, Laurel Cosmetics states that it disagrees with the “wiggle room” certifiers like the USDA leave for “undesirable processing standards, unmonitored overseas farming,” and “irresponsible and unsustainable farming practices.”
Therefore, paying to use the USDA symbol is not something Laurel is willing to do.
That said, if you do want to see an individual ingredient certifying document, Laurel Beauty can provide these on request.
Are Laurel Skin products safe during pregnancy?
Laurel Skin Care products are used by pregnant and nursing moms globally. Most products contain essential oils at around 1%, which is well below what could be considered a potential risk.
And plant medicine is often considered far safer than modern-day pharmaceuticals that can be packed full of toxic and dangerous ingredients.
However, Laurel does note that “every woman is different and responds differently to different foods and different plants during the time of pregnancy.”
She suggests you use your own senses to find “what is right for your unique body.”
Are Laurel products vegan?
While many Laurel Beauty products are suitable for vegans, some items do contain honey and/or beeswax.
All bee-derived ingredients are sourced from organic California farms that share Laurel’s goal of restoring the bee population and supporting the long-term life of bees.
Does Laurel Cosmetics test on animals?
Is Laurel Skin effective at producing anti-aging results?
Absolutely! Laurel Skin Care is fantastic for aging skin and states that its products are “about unburdening your skin” with skincare that’s free from toxic ingredients or chemicals, and packed full of nutrients, moisturizing ingredients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, proteins, and enzymes to ensure your skin is always at full health.
