OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU AND OUR PLANET
CRUELTY-FREE & VEGAN
All of our products are cruelty-free, vegan, and responsibly sourced. OneYou and our suppliers don’t test on animals or ask 3rd parties to test for us. Animal by-products such as honey or shark liver will not be found in our skincare lines. The palm oil and Shea butter we use are sustainably sourced with respect to human and wildlife rights. The OneYou brand inhabits harmony with Earth and its life.
By using farmed organic ingredients means that they were grown without pesticides, bioengineering, or petroleum-based fertilizers, which could be toxic to the environment.
The serum bottles and cream jars were chosen for their ability to safely dispenses organic and natural products without contaminating them and to keep their potency. Product refill options are in development to help reduce waste.
MADE IN THE USA
OneYou is a brand owned by byRitual—a small woman-owned and operated business based in California. Our products are manufactured and produced in the United States to help support American jobs and to ensure the quality of our products. We only outsource resources when they are not available domestically.
THE DIRTY TRUTH
In the United States the government is rather lax when it comes to approving the use of chemicals in skincare products. The EU has much stricter guidelines. For this reason, we use all-natural ingredients when possible that are free of harmful chemicals that strip the natural lipid barrier of skin which can cause more irritation or even worse can lead to cancer. We do not use sulfates, parabens, petroleum phthalates, formaldehyde, dyes, or artificial fragrances for this reason.
Parabens are preservative that extends the life of products while they sit on your shelf. Common parabens are methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, and butylparaben. Parabens can enter your body through your skin and sometimes cause a rash if there is an allergic reaction. A clinical study found that in the presence of growth-promoting substances that are normally in breast tissue, parabens can promote the growth of estrogen-sensitive breast tumors even in tiny amounts.
Sulfates are mineral salts containing sulfur used as a binding agent. Also known as: SO2, sulfurous anhydride, sulfur oxide, sulfurous oxide, and sulfurous acid anhydride. Sulfates derived from petroleum that are associated with climate change, pollution, and greenhouse gases. Sulfates can also be found in some plant products. For people with sensitive skin, sulfates may also clog pores and cause acne.
Phthalates are chemicals that make plastic soft and flexible. Tests on people show DBP can irritate the skin. Manufacturers use phthalates because they cling to the skin to give more staying power. Another study, led by Dr. Shanna Swan of the University of Missouri, identified developmental abnormalities in male infants correlating to high phthalate levels in their mothers’ bodies. More studies associated phthalates with breast cancer and with hormonal disruptions in young girls and women. A 2003 European Union directive bans phthalates in cosmetics sold in Europe, but they are still legal in the United States and Canada.
