While you may be searching for chemical-free products, did you know that there is actually no such thing? Green People’s Cosmetic Scientist, Ian Taylor explains:
“Scientifically speaking, anything that has matter (i.e. is a liquid, solid or gas) is made up of chemicals. Even the food we eat and the water we drink is made of chemicals, therefore no beauty products can ever technically be ‘chemical-free’.”
Some beauty brands use the phrase ‘chemical-free products’ to market their cosmetics as pure and natural. While to some people this may be clear, it is technically incorrect and can cause confusion for some people. That’s why Green People doesn’t claim to make chemical-free products, instead it creates natural and certified organic cosmetics that are nourishing, balancing and gentle on even the most sensitive skin.
Why should we avoid harsh chemicals?
The human body is a 200,000 year old model, so it’s unsurprising that we haven’t evolved to deal with the thousands of chemicals that have only been used in skin care for the last century.
An estimated 70,000 chemicals are used in cosmetics and most of these have not been tested in conjunction with one another, meaning little is known about the combined toxicity levels of certain combinations of chemicals.
Choosing beauty products that are free from harsh chemicals can help to reduce the number of chemicals that come into contact with your skin on a daily basis and restore a healthy skin balance
Looking for chemical-free make-up?
Green People’s mineral make-up naturally enhances your complexion with flattering shades. We blend the earth minerals Zinc and Mica with nourishing plant ingredients for pure coverage that lasts all day long.
High street make-up may contain pore-blocking silicones (usually dimethicone) and mineral oils that can cause irritation and prevent skin from breathing. Green People’s natural and organic make-up is free from chemical nasties and won’t clog your pores, making it suitable for sensitive skin and those prone to acne.
Looking for chemical-free moisturiser?
Green People’s organic moisturisers are packed with a synergistic blend of powerful plant actives to hydrate, balance and nourish your skin. Formulated without chemical nasties such as drying alcohol, silicone and mineral oil, our moisturisers work hard for your skin to promote age confidence and a radiant, glowing complexion.
Innovative youth-boosting actives, including Baicalin, Seaweed and Hibiscus (nature’s Botox), deliver an instant moisture infusion to plump, deeply hydrate and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Looking for chemical-free shampoo?

Looking for chemical-free sunscreen?
Sunscreen is a staple product that we all need to use, but for those looking for a chemical-free sunscreen, finding the right product for your skin can be a difficult.
Green People’s broad-spectrum, natural and organic sun lotions are free from harsh chemicals, highly effective and suitable for ultra-sensitive skin and those prone to prickly heat.

extract of the mountain flower Edelweiss, protects your skin from both UVA and
UVB rays. Natural antioxidants and vitamins A, C and E from Avocado, Green Tea
and Rosemary, support your skin’s immune system and protect against cell
