THE SUKIN NO LIST

It's what we leave out that makes us special

The Sukin NO list

At Sukin, we believe it's our job to help educate on the difference between natural and synthetic skin & haircare products. We were one of the first to say 'NO' to artificial additives and harsh ingredients that can cause harm to ourselves, animals, and the environment we live in. It is our belief that everything we need to make the products you love can be found in nature, and it's this knowledge about what to leave out that makes our products so special.

The Sukin No List, transcript available
No Edta. Use to improve shelf life of products. Instead we use naturally derived ingredients to extend our shelf life including Vitamin E.
No Petrolatum or mineral oils. We use natural plant oils such as rosehip oil, Sesame, Avocado, Jojoba, Shea and Coco Butters to moisturise the skin instead of oils sourced from non-renewable resources.
No Sulphates (SLS or SLES). Sulphates can be irritating to the skin and eyes, we use mild, plant derived cleansers instead.
No Synthetic fragrances. Instead we use natural essential oils and natural fragrances.
No animal derivates. We are against animal suffering and believe that by reducing the demand from ingredients such as collagen, lanolin and beeswax we are part of the solution. Instead,  we use plant waxes such as Carnuba & Candelila wax
No Artificial colours. Products are either uncoloured or use ingredients such as charcoal, coffee or natural clays.
No harsh detergents. We use gentle cleansing ingredients such as Decyl Glucoside or other plant derived cleansers.
No Propylene Glycol. A synthetic protroleum substance that is derived from non-renewable resources. Propylene Glycol consumes oxygen needed by aquatic organisms, which can result in unhealthy environment for life in sea/rivers
No mea, dea or tea. Products with mea, dea or tea could be contaminated with nitrosamines that are potential carcinogenic substances.
No Phthalates. Our products do not contain phthalates.
No Triclosan. Triclosan is used as  an anti-microbial agent that could contribute to bacteria in the environment and waterways, building bioci resistance.
No Parabens. Widely used sythetic preservatives in cosmetics and pharmaceutical products. We choose alternative preservative systems at the lowest level instead to keep our products safe.
No Silicones. Silicones are from non-renewable sources and leave a lasting impact on the earth. Instead we use natural extract, oils and plant proteins for their conditioning properties.
No Edta. Use to improve shelf life of products. Instead we use naturally derived ingredients to extend our shelf life including Vitamin E.
No Petrolatum or mineral oils. We use natural plant oils such as rosehip oil, Sesame, Avocado, Jojoba, Shea and Coco Butters to moisturise the skin instead of oils sourced from non-renewable resources.
