Gaia Naturals Skin Care is committed to wholesome, natural ingredients in the making of skin care products. Mother earth gave us plenty of amazing raw materials to work with and we are committed to using these natural resources to bring a superior product to market.
The skin is the largest organ in the body, it takes the most abuse, and we need to nurture our skin now more than ever due to all of the pollutants in our environment. Our oils are high in various vitamins and amino acids as well as other minerals. They are absorbed through the skin and can be nourishing to the cells below the skin surface.
We are committed to bringing a green, vegan, quality product that is paraben free, formaldehyde free, with as few chemicals as possible. We use a natural preservative in small quantities to prevent bacteria, yeast, fungus and other unwanted freebees from growing in our products. It is typically less than one percent of our product.
We take the comedogenic factors of different oils into account when formulating our skin care products. We only use non-comedogenic oils in the formulation of facial creams and serums. The term comedogenic refers to the tendency of the oil or butter to promote acne and clog pores in the skin. Non-comedogenic oils and butters are preferred for the face and delicate skin areas, as well as any problem areas of the skin.
You can count on us for.
Sensitive skin Products
Paraben Free Products
Parabens are an inexpensive preservatives widely used which studies have linked to cancer.
Parabens can mimic the hormone estrogen, which is known to play a role in the development of breast cancers. Researchers have found parabens in breast tumors and believe there is a relationship between parabens and tumors.
Formaldehyde Free Products
Formaldehyde is another inexpensive preservative that has been linked with cancer.
Propylene Glycol Free Products
Propylene Glycol is another inexpensive chemical that is a humectant, meaning it attracts moisture from the surrounding environment. There are many natural butters and oils that do the same thing, so we choose not to use it in our formulations.
Sulfate & Alcohol Free Products
Sulfates are cleansers that produce lots of bubbles and they are cheap. They are in a variety of cleansers including engine degreaser. They are harsh and they are cheap. Bubbles are the "wow" factor of sulfates and why they have been used. There is a misconception that more bubbles equals more clean, which is simply not true. We believe anything that is good enough to strip grease off an engine is way to harsh for our skin. Alcohol is very drying and we dont use it in our products either.
Petrolatum & Mineral Oil Free Products
Both products actually keep moisture out of the skin by creating a layer than is not absorbed and sits on the skin. It can produce acne and clog pores.

Please note that many butters and oils are obtained by a pressing process of the nuts or fruit of the trees. Anyone with allergies to nuts should take care to avoid any of the oils derived from the nut/fruit, such as but not limited to cocoa, sweet almond, and shea butter.
