Common toxins found in makeup include: Parabens, Talc, Bismuth, Synthetic Dyes, Fragrance, and Petroleum byproducts. All of these are known carcinogens (meaning known to increase likelihood of cancer in the body.) hormone disruptors, and skin irritants.
The average woman uses around 168 unique chemicals on her body daily through the use of personal care products. We work hard to provide our bodies with proper nutrition and exercise, and we are working to apply the same effort when it comes to what we put on our skin.
1 out of every 13 women is exposed to KNOWN carcinogens every day through their use of personal care products. 1 out of 24 women are exposed to known reproductive toxins through the use of personal care products, NOT including phthalates that are unlisted in synthetic fragrances.
Your skin is your largest organ, and what you put on it is absorbed into your bloodstream. Toxic chemicals can accumulate in the cells of your body and cause long-term issues (bioaccumulation)

If there's just one thing I LOVE about Savvy, it's that each of these ingredients were picked specifically for a purpose to benefit our skin!
- Arrowroot powder - known to heal and improve skin, helps with excess oil, gives a silky, smooth and weightless finish, and is moisturizing to the skin
- Kaolin clay - smooths skin tone, great coverage for skin with issues and rosacea
- Jojoba oil - lip gloss base, full of B vitamins, smooth and hydrating, and as close to our skin's natural oils as possible!
- Aloe (straight from the plant!) - gives a smooth, flawless finish, and is the base for the misting spray
- Essential oils instead of fragrance
- It's completely vegan (aside from beeswax in the lip gloss and lipstick) and gluten free!
- Savvy has a shelf life of a year without all the preservative junk!
NO PETROCHEMICALS, including mineral oils made from petroleum that may cause breakouts, premature aging, and negatively affect your hormones and immune system. (Petrochemicals are found in many commonly available lotions, creams, ointments, and cosmetics.)
NO TALC, which can cause skin irritation, organ system toxicity (lungs, ovaries), and is a known carcinogen.(Talc is found in many commonly available eyeshadow, blush, foundation, and face powder.)
NO PARABENS, which are known carcinogens (linked to skin cancer). It is another reproductive and development toxin.
NO PHTHALATES (listed as DEP, DBP, & DEHP on labels), which are toxic to the reproductive system and affect development. Phthalates also disrupt your endocrine system and are known carcinogens.
YL products also contain no gluten, no nano-particles, no metals, no synthetic dyes, and no synthetic fragrances.
