Each SkinGenius bottle is packed with only 100% natural, organic ingredients proven to fight bacteria and soothe redness without over-drying your skin.

This is why we have no need to use any of the bad stuff (you know all those ingredients you can hardly pronounce) in our skincare products. At SkinGenius, we’ve proven you can enjoy clear, healthy skin using organic, natural ingredients without harmful chemicals and their nasty side effects. It’s why we’ve developed a natural skincare routine that actually works in three simple steps.

Why chemical treatments are bad for me

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) or Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)

Found in the majority of products that foam, from cleaning agents to industrial strength detergents, SLS will disrupt your skin’s natural oil balance and can cause itching and dryness.

Benzyl Peroxide

Yes, this may be the secret ingredient to killing the bacteria causing acne, but in turn, it can bring on dryness, burning, redness and even bleach your hair, clothing, and bedding.

Sodium Hydroxide

This is used to help hold the pH balance in products. Concentrated Sodium Hydroxide is a strong irritant and corrosive to the skin, eyes, respiratory tract and gastrointestinal system if ingested.

Salicylic acid

This will unblock your pores but is known to cause skin irritations from burning to redness.

PEGS or Petroleum (yes, petrol)

For anyone suffering from acne, applying petroleum or mineral oil-based products to your skin is like covering yourself in clingfilm. It stops the skin from breathing and seals off the skin from the air, water or anything else from getting in (and out).

Mineral Oil

This is a by-product of petroleum.

Paraffin

A derivative of petroleum used to soften and smoothen the skin. It’s comedogenic (known to clog pores) and can also be harmful if swallowed. Look out for names such as propylene/ polyethylene glycol, or polyoxyethylene or if it ends with ‘eth’ or ‘oxynol,’ xylene and toluene.

Parabens

Parabens are commonly used as preservatives in cosmetics and work as an active foaming agent. Parabens are carcinogenic and known to disrupt your hormones.

Sulfates

Sulfates function as surfactants: water- and oil-soluble compounds that, when combined with water, foam and emulsify greasy substances. While they remove dead skin cells, sulfates can aggravate the skin, causing redness, dryness, and itching.

Stearic Acid Derivatives

Stearic acid is used in products to condition and provide a pearly feel and cooling effect in skin care products. It's used as an emulsifier in lotions and makeup. It can cause skin irritations with symptoms of severe itching, redness, and swelling.

Lanolin

Used in the skincare and cosmetics industry as an effective emollient, softening and soothing the skin. It can block the pores causing breakouts.

Triclosan

This is used as a synthetic preservative and has antibacterial properties. It’s known to disrupt hormones and is a hazard to the natural environment (and toxic to aquatic organisms) as it takes ages to break down.

Fragrance

It’s common for fragrance to wreak havoc on the skin (and disrupt your hormones) by causing dermatitis, inflammation, redness, or other allergic reactions like a headache or asthma attack.
