More and more people are becoming alert to the fact that beauty does not have to involve cruelty or animal byproducts. At Wildflower Favours we are always on the lookout for vegan beauty products and cruelty-free make-up to make your wedding day even more eco-friendly, and we have found some marvellous products in Tropic Skin Care’s range. Pure – Honest – Effective: these are the principles that lie at the heart of everything Tropic Skin Care do. Your skin is your greatest asset. As your largest organ, it deserves that extra TLC from outside as well as in. You should be able to trust what you put on your skin and for that reason, Tropic are committed to using only premium, responsibly sourced natural ingredients which are handmade with the freshest ingredients in their brand new Surrey Beauty Kitchen.
PURE – Tropic Skincare will never, ever test on animals or cause them distress by using derivatives such as lanolin, beeswax or honey. Their products contain ingredients that are 100% naturally derived or nature identical. A few formulations contain small quantities of safe synthetics where no natural or vegan alternatives are available.
HONEST – All ingredients are listed in plain English, and include a ‘best before’ date on all skincare so you know exactly what’s in your product, and that you’re applying only the freshest ingredients to your skin.
EFFECTIVE – Products use the richest, most nutritious premium natural ingredients to ensure they are effective on all skin types, even the most sensitive.
Ingredients are sourced from the whole plant – the flower, the seeds, the stem, the roots, the leaves and the fruit, to extract the wonderful vitamins and antioxidants nature has to offer. They never use ingredients derived from animals and are strict in their vegan ways.
All ingredients are free from: Parabens • SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) • Alcohol • Formaldehydes • Petrochemicals • Phthalates • MI (Methylisothiazolinone) • Harsh Preservatives • Mineral Oils • ALS (Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate) • Harmful Synthetic Fragrances • Triclosan • Unsustainable Palm Oils • Gluten • Lanolin • Beeswax • Honey • Toxic Chemicals
Products are free of the most common allergens such as artificial colour and fragrance, however, some people may find they are sensitive to essential oils which are contained in some of their products.
