We Are On A Mission… TRUTH IN SKINCARE

It’s really startling actually. The incessant, manipulative, and purposely misleading tactics used by the big beauty industry to “sell” trusting customers on the next skincare concoction. To put it simply, the big beauty houses care more about tricky marketing schemes that promise unrealistic miracle results to line their own pockets than they do about the effects of these products on your body. Here is the quick rundown of the two biggest disgraces that the Over The Counter (OTC) beauty culture serves up on a silver platter.

TOXIC INGREDIENTS:


The long list of toxic ingredients that are used as common practice in the OTC beauty world are astounding and appalling. These companies knowingly put compounds into their formulations that are harmful, carcinogenic, and interfere with healthy hormone signaling in the body.


Your skin is designed to be a semipermeable membrane, so what you put on to it gets absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed around the body.

Much like healthy eating habits, what you apply to your skin is of the utmost importance for the vitality of your body as a whole. The uptick in “modern” day toxic exposure isn’t just due to the environments we live in or the car exhaust we encounter on a daily basis. A large quantity of dangerous substances come from the products we CHOOSE to apply daily.

Educating ourselves on what ingredients products contain is a critical step towards making better, healthier choices. So next time you are tempted to buy that “too good to be true” wrinkle reducers, acne fighter, or lifting potion, flip over the bottle and see what’s really in your skincare. Look up those unpronounceable ingredients and see what you can find. There are many toxic ingredient lists you can download to double check your products choices. If you don’t know, ask. In an increasingly toxic world, awareness is vital.


At Mikel Kristi, we remain committed to clean, green skincare. Our products are 100% free from parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, petrolatum. Our formulations have also been organic, vegan, fragrance free, sustainably sourced and CRUELTY FREE.


ANIMAL TESTING:

Closely related to toxic ingredients, is the cruel world of animal testing for cosmetic use. This practice is common place among the big beauty brands, and unfortunately it doesn’t look like it will stop anytime soon. If you’re using beauty products from brands that don’t say they’re cruelty free, then you can bet they’re using ineffective, archaic methods to test product safety on animals.


We’re disappointed and saddened by the the choices of the industry as a whole, and this is why our products are completely vegan and never tested on animals, since day one! We believe that animals are our partners on this planet, and not a commodity. We can all make a difference by only buying and supporting beauty brands that adhere to the strictest of standards when it comes to animal safety.

OUR MISSION OF INTEGRITY:

At Mikel Kristi we choose to formulate products that are easy on your body, our earth, and your conscience. Our skincare line is based on the highest level of sincerity, transparency, and clinical validation. This isn't the simplest road to walk in an industry built for the quick and dirty dollar, but we will always choose honesty and product purity to deliver outstanding results.


We do the hard work to bring you health activating blends of only the finest ingredients, that never once put an animal in harm’s way. This is one of our driving forces, and part of our heartfelt mission. You never have to sacrifice your health, or the wellbeing of any animal for amazing looking skin. End of story.

The Problem
Aging is such an interesting and exciting journey, but it can be disturbing as you watch the visible signs show up on your skin.
