Clean beauty is one that draws from the goodness of Mother Nature, with products formulated with natural ingredients that are sourced in their purest form and devoid of harsh/harmful chemicals, such as parabens, silicones, sulphates, and the like. At its core, clean beauty is beauty that loves the planet as much as it loves you. The idea revolves around maintaining that ever-so-fragile balance between human and environmental health, that remains hanging in the hands of the businesses that follow this philosophy.
Another term you may have come across as being used interchangeably with clean beauty is ‘green’ beauty, and we’re here to tell you the difference between the two. While largely following the same concept, green beauty specifically refers to eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable products, that ensure the entire cycle of production—right from the manufacturing to the packaging—is biodegradable, recyclable or reusable, and protects Mother Nature from harm in any way.
A more technical term, organic implies that the company does not use ingredients that are GMO, or genetically modified, while steering clear of harmful pesticides, insecticides and other such synthetic chemicals in their products. Organic beauty also refers to companies using solely plant-based alternatives for their products, right from natural preservatives to natural fragrance.
To be considered organic in the eyes of regulatory bodies is a laborious yet honourable achievement, and we at NESARA By Nicky are proud to disclose that 90% of the ingredients we use are USDA Certified Organic.
Non Toxic Beauty
In the skincare world, the adage ‘The dose makes the poison’ sums up almost the entirety of beauty formulations. Absolutely anything, even water, can be toxic if it crosses a certain threshold, and the same holds true for skincare products. When a product claims to be non-toxic, it’s telling you that all the ingredients used in their formulations are within permissible limits and proven to not have any harmful side effects.
Needless to say, NESARA By Nicky products are completely safe and gentle on the skin.
Green beauty and sustainable beauty are two peas in the same skincare pod: both centre around ensuring the process, usage and post-usage of the product are 100% safe for the environment. ‘Sustainable’ also refers to the method of sourcing of the said ingredients: they should be procured in a safe, ethical & eco-friendly manner and must come under the global Fair Trade policies.
NESARA By Nicky has and will continue to source its ingredients directly from their places of origin around the world, while maintaining ethical welfare practices for those who contribute towards making our products great—largely underprivileged women—who directly benefit from your purchases, enabling them to take a step towards a better, healthier life. Our products are incredibly safe for the planet, so much so that you can water your plants using the leftover soap water from our Artisanal Soaps! Need we say more?
While a product can be natural, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s vegan. Vegan implies the product is free of any ingredient sourced from animals. Some examples of natural yet non-vegan ingredients are honey (unless specified as floral), beeswax, lanolin, among others.
NESARA By Nicky products are proudly clean while being 100% vegan.
If a product has not been tested on animals in any step of the sourcing, manufacturing, production and distribution process, it can be labelled as a cruelty-free product. Being cruelty-free does not, however, mean the product is vegan. Cruelty-free products can have animal-sourced ingredients, provided they were sourced from a safe, ethical and healthy environment for the animal where it faced no harm.
Here at NESARA By Nicky, our products are proudly cruelty-free while being vegan at the same time for the simple reason being: we are passionate about animals, animal rights and animal welfare. We feel they have a right to live with dignity just like human beings do.To know more about these terminologies, their history and their technicalities, click here to check out our blogs!
