NOT FOUND™ LIST
Our miracle ingredients are sourced from around the world. Each miracle ingredient plays a key role in product formulation and is blended with necessary functional synthetic materials to deliver the most efficacious and sensorial pleasing application.
In addition to the NOT USED ingredients listed above, our products are also formulated WITHOUT:
- MI & MIT & CMIT Preservatives
- Urea or Formaldehyde releasers
- MEA / DEA / TEA
- Triclosan or Chlorphenesin
- Chemical sunscreen actives
We work to avoid known allergens: wheat, milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, fish, crustacean shell, and gluten, but can’t guarantee against cross contamination. We always recommend you check with your physician prior to using a product if you suffer from any allergies.
found™ formulas are never tested on animals.
Our products are formulated without Parabens, SLS/SLES, Synthetic Fragrance, Phthalates, PEGs and Mineral Oil.
Parabens – a group of preservative systems that prevent mold and bacterial growth. Believed to be hormone disruptors, Parabens may modify important hormone function.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate/Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS/SLES) – detergent additives that allow cleansing products to build foam. SLS and SLES may trigger skin reactions and cause irritation.
Synthetic Fragrance – complex combinations of engineered substances that are added to many personal care products to give them a distinctive aroma. Synthetic fragrances may contain various chemical ingredients, including allergens and hormone disruptors.
Phthalates – a chemical used to make products more flexible or to make fragrances adhere to skin. Phthalates may be toxic to reproductive systems and may disrupt the endocrine system.
PEGs – polyethylene glycol is utilized in personal care products as a solvent, conditioner, or thickeners. PEGs may contain trace amounts of the carcinogens 1,4-dioxane and ethylene oxide.
Mineral Oil – a colorless and odorless oil that’s made from petroleum and is used to reduce water loss from the skin. Mineral Oil is considered comedogenic and may contain harmful impurities and carcinogens associated with Petroleum.
MI & MIT & CMIT – a class of preservatives that may cause irritation, sensitivity and skin allergies.
Ureas or Formaldehyde Releasers – function as moisturizers and preservatives. Ureas may increase the risk for contact dermatitis and have been shown to release formaldehyde, a carcinogen that may be linked to respiratory toxicity and neurotoxicity.
Propylene Glycol – a synthetic liquid that is often used as a solvent, stabilizer and humectant. Propylene glycol may cause mild irritation and allergic reactions.
MEA/DEA/TEA – also known as ethanolamines, they function as surfactants and pH adjusters. These may induce skin allergies, hormone disruption, and skin toxicity. They are also known to react to potentially form cancer-causing nitrosamines.
Triclosan – antimicrobial agent that may be toxic to the human reproductive system.
Nanotechnology – microscopic nanoparticles used to enhance cosmetic products. Given their small nature, nanoparticles may have the potential to penetrate deeply into the skin, causing harmful physical side effects.
Gluten – a protein found in wheat, rye and barley that can cause potential skin irritation.
Silicones – in some cases, consumers choose to avoid silicones due to a potential concern for topical skin care issues so we can direct you to the products that avoid use of silicones if needed.
Synthetic Dyes – in some cases, consumers choose to avoid any dyes or just synthetic dyes due to potential irritation issues so we acknowledge the use of dyes in certain color items so they can be avoided if determined by the customer.
