The Biossance Way

The future is clean with us.

We formulate clean, nontoxic skincare using the highest standards in the industry through our commitment to transparency and our blacklist of 2,000+ toxic ingredients.

Nontoxic

Free from toxins and harsh chemicals

Sustainable

Eco-friendly formulas and packaging

Effective

Clinically proven results

 

What's In Your Skincare?

It's not always clear

While mainstream products still use toxic ingredients, we are committed to creating nontoxic, clean skincare using our No Compromise™ approach—products that are good for you and safe for the environment.

Clean vs Natural?

What is the difference between “clean” and “natural”?
Here’s where we stand:

Clean

Natural

Free from toxic and potentially-harmful ingredients.

Can be toxic or harmful (e.g. poison ivy).

Safe for the planet, sustainable and cruelty-free.

May come from endangered plants (e.g. sandalwood) or animal by-products.

Effective and stable from naturally-derived or nontoxic synthetic sources.

Susceptible to climate and environmental changes, which can reduce efficacy.

What’s On Our Blacklist?

We blacklist 2,000+ ingredients that are either proven to be toxic or potentially toxic for you and the environment. This surpasses regulatory agencies around the world. Currently the US only bans 12 ingredients, while Europe leads the way with 1,367+ that are not allowed for cosmetic use.

Keep it clean

Did you know that laws in the US governing cosmetic safety haven’t changed since 1938? As members of the Counteract Coalition, an alliance of clean beauty brands, we’re advocating to form stricter guidelines and demand safer products through the Personal Care Safety Act. You, too can create change with your buying power. Only purchase products from brands committed to creating nontoxic skincare.

    -Lily Tse
    Founder, Think Dirty
  • Sephora, one of the largest global beauty retailers, is promoting clean beauty with products carrying the CLEAN at SEPHORA seal.
