Our ingredients

Go natural - say no to harmful synthetic chemicals in your skincare.  We love creating natural skincare using organic ingredients and our motto is 'keep it simple' so you'll find everything natural and nothing synthetic in a Peachykeen jar. That means no parabens, no artificial fragrance or colours, no petrochemicals, no phthalates, no PEG's - in fact nothing but natural oils and butters to keep your skin looking peachykeen. Every ingredient that goes into a peachykeen jar is certified organic. We only buy from reputable suppliers who are certified with the Soil Association or Ecocert (France). 

So that means rosehip oil from plants grown without the pesticides used in mainstream agriculture, and chamomile essential oil extracted without the use of chemical solvents.

What does it all mean for you? Well it means our finished products are as pure as you can get - and our peachykeen organic standards mean no synthetic ingredients whatsoever (including parabens, propylene glycol, PEGs, DEA, TEA, SLS). 

Does it matter? Well if you care about what you eat, why not care about what you put on your skin?  Some of it ends up in your body too; your skin is absorbent - that's why nicotine patches and HRT are applied that way. Of course some would argue that your body can process the chemicals it absorbs, and that in tiny quantities they're not harmful but we prefer not to add to the load when there's just no need. So why not keep it simple and use what Mother Nature - and Peachykeen Organics - has provided.
