Here at mio, we're super passionate about what we put into our skincare and we're equally obsessive about what we keep out. Learn more about our 'no nasties' policy...
Our No Nasties promise is your assurance that mio and mama mio are the cleanest, most effective products we could make. In our experience as women, we all want skincare that is as free of any nasties as possible, but we also want skin that actually WORKS. We do not use… parabens, petrolatum, mineral oil, artificial colourants, sodium laureth or lauryl sulphate, xenoestrogens, phthalates or PEGs. Let’s tell you a little about why we choose not to use certain ingredients. There is so much scaremongering on the internet, it is difficult to know exactly why you may not want some ingredients in your skincare. Hopefully these notes will help you understand the why but also reassure you that almost all skincare sold today is very very safe.
The main 3 ingredients used in skincare that are part of the Glycol family are Propylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol and Polyethylene Glycol (also knows as PEG). We believe the ones to really avoid are Propylene Glycol and polyethylene glycol. There is much talk about these being the basis of antifreeze (not true – Ethylene Glycol is often used in anti-freeze and never used in skincare). Glycols come in very different molecular sizes, hence the number that often precedes a PEG reference in an ingredient list, ie PEG-100, PEG-9. The smaller the number, the smaller the molecular weight and the easier it is for the PEG to penetrate the skin. This penetration is why you should be careful of the PEGs you apply to your skin, especially if you have undesirable ingredients in that skincare.
Mineral oil is a petrochemical, a derivative of crude oil. It has large molecules which are unable to penetrate the surface of the skin, therefore it acts a non-absorbent oily film, said to 'lock in moisture'. Sounds good, yeah? Actually, no. It totally masks your skin, preventing it from breathing properly. Initially your skin may feel smooth but as your skin is smothered, you can actually increase levels of bacteria and sweat trapped between the oil and your skin. This can often make skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis worse.
We have 3 products within our Mio and Mama Mio range that have a tiny amount of Butylene Glycol. The reason for it is part of the carrier for two of our amazing active ingredients. Adiploss and Matrixyl 3000. We want to include them in the relevant formulas (so they really work) and they are only available in a solution that has a little Butylene Glycol in it.
These products are Shrink To Fit and Get Waisted (that both include the incredible Adipoless fat buster ingredient) and our Goodbye Stretch Marks (through the ingredient peptide-packed Matrixyl 3000, used in very expensive eye creams). The percentage of Butylene Glycol is less than a tenth of one percent but we believe in honesty. In our opinion, we would rather have 0.1% in the entire formula to ensure that the benefits are the absolute maximum we can give you.
