Frequently Asked Questions
I’m sensitive to alpha hydroxy acids. Can I use the Active Age Defense products?
Earth Science's Active Age Defense products are specifically formulated for even the most sensitive faces. Earth Science's products help to protect the skin and promote regeneration. They contain no Retin-A or aggressive alpha hydroxy acids. Earth Science's formulas are pH balanced to ensure their compatibility with delicate skin. They are also enriched with skin soothing ingredients such as kola nut extract, licorice extract, and echinacea.
What are antioxidants and how do they help my skin stay healthy?
In the body, molecules called “free radicals” cause oxidation. Oxidation can damage healthy skin cells and may accelerate aging of the skin. Antioxidants are ingredients found naturally in plants which neutralize molecules that cause oxidation. They can help to prevent premature aging of the skin.
What role does pH play in skin care?
pH is a measure of the acidity and alkalinity of a solution. A lower pH indicates a more acidic solution (which carries more potential for redness and irritation). A higher pH means a more alkaline solution (which some can find drying). The pH of normal, healthy skin can be anywhere from 4.0 to 6.0. Each Earth Science product is precisely pH balanced for specific suitability.
Do they use methyl or propyl paraben to preserve their products?
Absolutely not. Earth Science products have been on the market for over twenty-five years and have never contained parabens.
Do you test on animals or use animal ingredients?
Earth Science products are not tested on animals. Most products contain no animal ingredients and are suitable for vegans. These product labels are clearly marked with, “No Animal Ingredients.” However, some Earth Science products do contain animal-produced ingredients such as beeswax, lanolin and silk protein. See below for a list of products containing these ingredients.
Which products are considered vegan?
Earth Science products are suitable for vegans, with the exception of the following:
- Azulene Eye Treatment contains beeswax
- Deep Conditioning Hair Masque contains hydrolyzed silk protein
Why are sulfates used in the shampoos? Are they harmful?
Sulfates, like sodium laureth or sodium lauryl sulfate, are commonly used as foaming agents. They are controversial ingredients due to rumors that question their safety. In a rinse-off formula like shampoo there is no opportunity for these sulfates to enter the bloodstream, which would be the main concern for carcinogenic risks.
A concern with sodium lauryl sulfate would be dermatitis or drying of the skin if used as part of a formula that was not pH balanced. Sodium lauryl sulfate has an approximate pH of 10 in its concentrated raw material form which is very alkaline and drying to the skin. Earth Science chooses not to use sodium lauryl sulfate. Sodium laureth sulfate, on the other hand, is at an approximate pH of 5.5 in its concentrated raw material form. This greatly reduces the risk of any type of skin irritation and is much easier to formulate into a gentle cleanser. Sodium laureth sulfate is very mild; it is derived from either coconut or palm and is gentle and effective even for sensitive skin. Earth Science uses only the gentlest form of sodium laureth sulfate.
Why is propylene glycol used in the deodorants?
Propylene glycol enables the deodorants to be applied smoothly in a stick form and helps to stabilize the base of anti-microbial plant ingredients. Earth Science has researched glycerin as a substitute, and found that the glycerin acts as a moisture binder that encourages bacterial growth, which causes odor. Propylene glycol is generally recognized as safe for use even in food products.
I have allergies, environmental sensitivities, skin irritation problems, etc. Are their products safe for me?
Earth Science prides itself on making gentle products that are suitable for a wide range of skin types and sensitivities. Many of their loyal customers consider themselves chemically sensitive. However, no product is guaranteed to be perfect for everyone. Allergies are particular to individuals. If you have environmental sensitivities, allergies, or skin conditions, please share the list of ingredients with your dermatologist to determine individual suitability. Additionally, they recommend patch testing the product on the inside of your wrist prior to use to confirm compatibility with your skin.
Are masking fragrances used in the fragrance-free products?
Earth Science does not use masking fragrances. Earth Science's products labeled fragrance-free are just that. They are specifically formulated for customers with heightened sensitivity to fragrances.
