The brand is a newcomer, but its founders are no strangers to beauty. The husband-wife visionaries behind Art Of Shaving, Myriam and Eric Malka became fanatical about botanicals before ‘clean beauty’ ever bloomed. As industry insiders, they had an advantage: they already knew the best chemists and suppliers. But they also knew the truth: most chemists weren’t working with truly natural and organic ingredients, and most suppliers weren’t sourcing the highest quality raw materials. Quality and transparency were non-negotiables for the founders, so they decided to do it their own way: with their own lab, a small proprietary network of ethical suppliers, and innovative low-waste packaging, to boot. As for what to call it? Well, the brand named itself. Ingredients®, because what else is there?
While ‘clean beauty’ may be vague, Ingredients® is anything but. To keep with their promise to deliver cleaner than clean, 100% plant-based, organic ingredients in potent concentrations, they couldn’t just slap a label on it and call it a day. So, they did what no beauty brand has dared to do: they listed each ingredient with exact percentages on the front of the box and bottle, taking transparency to a whole new level. Once you experience this refreshing approach to product labeling, you’ll wonder why this isn’t the standard.
When you see it, you may not believe it? Rose and neroli hydrosol at 90% seems lavish, while tremella mushroom at 1% sounds like not much more than a microdose. Too much of a good thing can cause irritation. Not enough and you don’t see the results, leading to frustration. What Ingredients® promises is high potency at the most effective concentration. You’ll enjoy the instant gratification of knowing the ingredient profile in exact concentrations, all at first glance.
Ingredients® was founded on the believe that everyone should have access to organic. We know that eating farm-to-table delivers the highest quality nutrition, right? Ingredients® follows this model as closely as possible. The fewer stops an ingredient makes, the cleaner–and less expensive–the product is. That’s why Ingredients® has worked hard to abbreviate the supply chain and deliver organic formulas that are more accessible to everyone. Highly concentrated, quality ingredients are inherently costly. But with Ingredients®, you’ll discover a beautiful balance of fair pricing, great value and superior quality. We think it’s downright refreshing.
The things we use every day should be of the highest quality. They should also be simple, effective, and supportive. Ingredients® celebrates the simplicity of the daily routine with an edited line of essentials that can benefit everyone. No niche products, just great products that we all need.
