Our Body Care Standards

We believe what goes on our bodies is as important as what we eat. That’s why we’re committed to finding products that are safer for our bodies and our world. We seek out products without genetic engineering or artificial fragrances that use renewable ingredients that are fairly traded.

We do not offer products that are tested on animals. Our sunscreens are environmentally friendly and are devoid of ingredients harmful to coral reefs, such as oxybenzone or octocrylene. We also prohibit numerous other ingredients common in body care, like triclosan, phthalates, petrochemicals, and parabens.

While hair color is exempt from our list of banned ingredients, the hair color brands carried at Lakewinds are paraben-free, safer, and cleaner than those found elsewhere. There are no permanent hair coloring options without some synthetic ingredients.

To that end, we have phased out the following ingredients from our body care assortment:

  • Aluminum (Antiperspirant)
  • Avobenzone
  • Ethanolamines
    • TEA
    • DEA
    • MEA
  • Formaldehyde donors
    • Urea
  • Oxybenzone
  • PEG/PPG
  • Petrochemicals
    • Petroleum
    • Propylene Glycol
  • Phthalates (Synthetic Fragrances)
  • Synthetic Preservatives
    • Parabens
    • EDTA
  • Triclosan (Anti-bacterial)
