ANSWERS TO YOUR TOP PLANTED IN BEAUTY QUESTIONS

ANSWERS TO YOUR TOP PLANTED IN BEAUTY QUESTIONS

1. WHY IS NATURAL, NON-TOXIC, ORGANIC SKINCARE GOOD FOR ME?

Just as you use caution when making choices about the foods you put into your body, you’ll also want to consider what you’re putting on your body. According to a survey by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), the average adult uses about 9 personal care products daily. These products are applied and absorbed into the skin. This absorption allows them to enter your bloodstream and impact the way your body functions. We’re talking about products with ingredients that have the potential to not only cause skin irritations but to cause cancer, disrupt hormone production, and lead to reproductive or developmental impairments. The frightening reality is that many of us are being exposed every single day.

By opting for natural, non-toxic, organic skincare, you are choosing to nourish your skin with the healthiest available ingredients free from toxic insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and fertilizers. Once organic natural ingredients are absorbed by the skin, they can help with everything from increasing collagen production and improving circulation to restoring discoloration and diminishing visible signs of aging, leaving skin looking vibrant and healthy.

2. WHY SHOULD PLANTED IN BEAUTY BE MY GO-TO LINE?

Many of us are aware that our skin is our largest organ. But may not know that 60% or more of the products we topically apply onto our skin have the potential to be absorbed into the bloodstream and circulated to our cells. So, it’s incredibly important to be conscious and cognizant for your own health and wellness of what you’re applying to your skin. PLANTED IN BEAUTY’s philosophy is if it’s not in nature, it’s not in our products, and our products are always pure and safe, free from synthetics and toxins.

PLANTED IN BEAUTY offers a simple yet comprehensive program that you can easily follow with minimal time invested to attain glowing, healthy skin you can see and feel. All it takes is 3 minutes. 2 times a day with 3 STEPS - CLEANSE. RESTORE. TREAT.

ECO-LUXE NATURAL, CERTIFIED ORGANIC SKINCARE - A welcoming sensorial experience with beautiful textures (always natural), colors (no artificial dyes), and pleasant scents (natural fragrances). Utilizing cutting-edge science technology and eco-responsible practices, our products are formulated with understandable and recognizable ingredients with a clear purpose and skin health benefits.

TOP LEVEL, CERTIFIED ORGANIC - Our 3rd party Cosmos Cosmetics Standard, certified by Ecocert, represents a guarantee for our consumers that the organic and natural ingredients in our products have been grown according to consistent and rigorous standards - everything from the soil to the water to the processing facilities are closely regulated. Our product formulas far surpass the organic required levels of the Cosmos Cosmetics Organic Standard.

AN ETHOS OF TRANSPARENCY - Credibility was crucial to this space – there’s much confusion around what it means to be natural, organic, clean, non-toxic with very little FDA regulation. We sought out independent, unbiased 3rd-party certifications to provide complete transparency and assurances to our consumers – from Ecocert for Cosmos Organic Standard, EWG VERIFIED, Leaping Bunny, Certified Vegan Trademark. 

EFFICACIOUS, HIGH-QUALITY ORGANIC, NATURAL INGREDIENTS - Formulated with 100% natural ingredients, including natural fragrances, emulsifiers and preservatives and 98% or more of the total plant ingredients are certified organic. Borrowing from the nutritional experts that eating a full color spectrum of fruits and vegetables promotes internal and external wellness, as a result, our plant-based skincare products contain a wide variety of high functioning ingredients, rich in beneficial phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals – uniquely selected to achieve maximum benefits and performance to promote healthy skin.

We select varieties of plants with a high content of active principles, and then we precisely harvest the part of the plant with the richest content to maintain the ingredient stability.You can find every ingredient in a product listed on its label and in our ingredient glossary for full transparency.

PROVEN PERFORMANCE RESULTS - Tested by outside laboratories, dermatologists, and ophthalmologists to ensure safety and stability. Clinicals conducted to ensure product performance and efficacy.

3. HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE RESULTS?

Improvements are often seen around the same time as new skin cells are formed, every 28 days. For this reason, most people report noticeable differences (such as hydration, radiance or smoother texture) in skin health around 3-4 weeks after daily usage of PLANTED IN BEAUTY products but some of have seen improvements in as early as one week.

4. WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT THE SAFETY AND EFFICACY OF YOUR PRODUCTS? 

This is luxurious, efficacious plant-based skincare that is good for you AND good for the environment.

  • Our top priority is to provide our customers products that are safe and efficacious. To this end, 3rd party facilities conduct clinical efficacy testing and in-use testing on our behalf to ensure product performance. Our products are also tested by outside laboratories, dermatologists and ophthalmologists to ensure safety and stability.
  • Our Products are always pure and safe – FREE FROM: Parabens, Petroleum, GMOs, Butylene Glycol, Phthalates, Sulfates, DEA, TEA, MEA, Silicones, Formaldehyde, Pesticides, Alcohol, PEGs, Artificial Dyes, Synthetic Fragrances and Preservatives.
  • We will never test any part of our product —ingredient, formulation or manufacturing — on animals.
  • Our entire line is vegan, meaning there are absolutely no animal ingredients, products, or bi-products.
  • Packaging is recyclable and biodegradable.
  • Our consumers don’t have to take our word for this. Planted in Beauty is certified by independent, 3rdparty experts and we proudly hold 4 certifications. The EWG VERIFIED mark means that the product has passed strict criteria for transparency, healthfulness and safety. These criteria include the avoidance of ingredients that authoritative health bodies have flagged for potential health concerns, full disclosure of ingredients, confirmation that the products are adequately preserved and free of contaminants and follows good manufacturing practices.

5. WHAT DO YOUR CERTIFICATIONS MEAN FOR ME?

When we developed PLANTED IN BEAUTY, we made a commitment to never trade quality or the peace of mind of our customer, for time or money saved. To that end, our ethos of transparency guided us through the voluntary processes taken, going above and beyond what is required to provide assurances and complete transparency to our customer.

This is especially important because of the wide range of standards and unclear messaging within the beauty industry. Many skincare products claiming to be “organic” or “all natural,” are anything but. Why? Simply put, cosmetic companies aren’t required to obtain any certification to call themselves natural or organic and therefore choose not to. But if we expect this certification on our food, why not demand it for our face? 

Independent certification requires an unbiased third party to assure you as the consumer, that the product is in fact what the brand tells you it is. 

When you purchase PLANTED IN BEAUTY products, you are given guarantees from our notable 3rd party certifications that attest to natural, organic, vegan, cruelty free, safe and eco-responsibility practices. Below are the highlights:

  • Ecocert Cosmos Organic - Verifies the actual amount of natural and organic ingredients, and the percentages in each product. They also ensure the toxic free ingredient integrity from plant seed to end product, and that eco- friendly packaging, sustainable farming and manufacturing practices are withheld.
  • EWG Verified from Environmental Working Group - Has Strict criteria for transparency, healthfulness and safety. This includes the avoidance of ingredients that have been flagged for potential health concerns, and that there is full disclosure of ingredients within the product.
  • Certified Vegan Seal: Our entire line is vegan, meaning there are absolutely no animal ingredients, products, or bi-products.
  • Leaping Bunny: No animal testing used in any phase of product development.

6. WHAT ECO-VALUES AND SUSTAINABILITY PRACTICES DO YOU UPHOLD? 

PLANTED IN BEAUTY allows for wellness to transcend personal benefit by also offering kindness to our planet through sustainable sourcing and holistic farming and manufacturing practices.

  • PLANTED IN BEAUTY upholds an eco-responsible approach from plant seed to end-product. We carefully select manufacturing partners who share our values and social conscious business practices.
  • What this means is our natural and organic ingredients are derived from holistic farming practices that require soil-building efforts to improve soil biodiversity and create a stable system of nutrients available to crops over time.
  • Organic agriculture also ensures that naturally occurring ecological processes are utilized for growing and harvesting crops, without the application of toxic chemicals like insecticides, fungicides, herbicides and fertilizers.
  • Solvents used are recycled, and the plant residues gathered are biodegradable and composted before being returned to the fields.
  • Manufacturing processes are also low-energy, fully preserving the integrity of actives and guaranteeing top-quality extracts.
  • In addition to certifying our formulations, Ecocert for Cosmos Cosmetics Standards has reviewed our packaging and packaging materials for sustainability and eco-friendliness (recyclability). Our packaging design offers the best protection for product safety, allows for longer shelf life and ease of application. We have reduced unnecessary packaging whenever necessary.
  • Through 1% FOR THE PLANET, we donate 1% of our sales to environmental organizations of our choice.

7. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON AGING?

We strongly believe that a new perspective on how to approach aging and wellness can go a long way when trying to look and feel better. We consider ourselves and our customers wellness seekers, and we’re all on our own individual wellness journey. The journey is constantly shifting, changing, evolving. We welcome those changes and embrace all that comes with it… To us, it's far more important to look and feel the best you can for where you are in life than strive for the days of your youth.  After all, aging is inevitable; chasing the clock backwards is wasted effort. Why not embrace aging?  Why not celebrate it at whatever age you are?

When we appreciate and love who we are (just as we are) and take steps to value ourselves at all stages, we radiate from the inside out.

8. I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR MORE ABOUT YOUR HOLISTIC APPROACH TO SKIN HEALTH.
