Ingredients To Avoid Card

$0.00 (inc GST)

Here’s a business-card size cheat sheet with some tips to help you spot ingredients that are – on balance – better avoided. We’re not advocating paranoia – we’re pointing out that there’s really no reason to be using these ingredients when there are perfectly good, clean and sustainable alternatives freely available… This card helps make it easy for you.


Stash this card in your wallet and refer to it next time you want to stock up. It gives a handy list on spotting ingredients that you’re better to avoid.

Some of the ingredients we’ve pointed out are well known for a range of concerns. They may be carcinogenic, mutagenic, teratogenic, irritant, polluting and/or problematic in some other way. For some, the problems are so well recognised that it beggars belief that they’re even used these days, and some are indicators for greenwashing by brands who are trying to pretend to be more natural / organic than they really are. Others are somewhere in between.

Overall, making choices that eliminate the things we’ve listed will mean that you’ve done something positive for your body and/or the environment. So go on – it’s easy!

PLEASE NOTE: This card is free of charge when added to your order. If it’s the only thing you’re ‘purchasing’ the shop will automatically add a delivery charge. If that’s the case, when we send the card out to you, we’ll enclose details so that you can get a credit with your next purchase. To avoid that though, it’s perfectly fine to call or email with your details and we’ll pop one in the mail for you 🙂
