WHAT WE DON'T PUT IN
Parabens: We use natural preservatives such as acids wherever possible. However, to maintain a substantially longer shelf life we also use Phenoxyethanol and Benzyl Alcohol in most of our products at very safe and low level. Both have a proven safety record, particularly in preserving natural formulations.
No Artificial Colours: The colour of our formulations is due to the natural and organic ingredients used to create the product. No artificial colours are added. As essential oils and their particular yield can vary from batch to batch, so too can the colour of our products. This is perfectly natural.
No Mineral Oils: We use natural plant and seed based oils for their wonderful moisturizing properties. Some commonly used oils that you will see in our products are certified Jojoba, Sweet Almond, and Rose Hip oil
No Animal Derivatives: We do not use animal products or even by-products. Instead, we use natural plant extracts as emollients to soften, smooth, and hydrate the skin. ERA is a committed cruelty free brand.
No SLS (Harsh Detergents): We use coconut derived, non-drying ingredients in our skin cleansing products to effectively remove surface oil, dirt, and bacteria without stripping the skin's natural oils.
