Most of them are, except for two product lines:
1) Dead Sea handcrafted soaps – we go to a local organic Nubian goat farm and purchase fresh milk for our luxurious soaps. The fat content from Nubian goats aids with skin healing and repair. Our unscented soaps are excellent for newborns with eczema, cradle cap and allergies.
2) Concrete Feet First Aid Stick – we use organic bees wax in the product.
Yes, we have been dedicated to all natural Dead Sea products since we started the company in 1998. We personally source all our sustainable ingredients and stay up on the research and European standards for natural products on a daily basis.
Absolutely not! We have been cruelty free since day one. All products are tested on ourselves, staff, friends, family and beta groups only.
Side note: We have had many humans use our products on their pets with great results.
We use certified organic herbs and infuse them for a year to make each extract. Most products on the market today use propylene and/or butylene extracts which are petroleum by-products that have potential health risks when used daily. We started making our Dead Sea Mineral Botanical Extracts in 2008 after learning about potential health risks with petroleum-based extracts. We keep them going year round. It’s a ‘labor of love’ that we are happy to do for our products!
We proudly manufacture all our products in our lab located in Anniston, Alabama USA.
ABSOLUTELY! There is too much controversy about parabens. They are preservatives that will keep a product sellable on a shelf 3-5+ years. Who wants 3-5+ year old skincare products? We use a probiotic preservative system in all our water-based products and manufacture in small batches to ensure the highest quality control. When you receive
your order, it will last about a year unrefrigerated.
Yes, and we do not use the ‘approved’ alternatives Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Zinc Coceth Sulfate or Cocamidopropyl Betaine either. We use natural soap paste and decyl glucoside for our shampoo and facial wash formulas. They clean deep, remove dirt and will not strip the hair or skin of valuable moisture.
YES! We have always focused on virgin organic or organic ingredients
that will nourish and nurture your skin. We are dedicated to the natural
power of nature to ensure well-being and gorgeous skin.
ABSOLUTELY! We follow the European standards for personal care products. These preservatives are banned there, but not in the USA. We aspire to ship globally, therefore we removed these skin sensitizers back in 2003.
We pride ourselves on being free of the following ingredients:
AHA’s & BHA’s
All petroleum by-products (mineral oil, all paraffins, petroleum jellies, propylene and butylene glycols)
DEA, MEA and TEA
DMDM hydantoin (form of formaldehyde)
EUXL K® 400
Gums (acacia, guar, xanthan)
Quarternium 15, 18 & 24
SLS/SLES and various alternative chemicals that are approved
