Our never list

At TEIA we are aware of what we put in our products, that is why we make sure not to include any ingredients that could be harmful. We follow a restricted ingredient list from MADE SAFE and EWG that goes beyond those approved by the industry by excluding more than 6,500 ingredients.

The following ingredients are on our NEVER list, you can be sure that they are not used in any of our products.

  • Phthalates and Parabens

    These compounds have been the subject of concern due to their possible effects on the endocrine system. Research suggests they may affect fertility and development, but opinions vary and some types have been regulated or banned in certain countries.

  • Formaldehyde

    Known to be a carcinogen in high concentrations and can cause irritation. Its use is regulated in many products, but remains a concern in some cosmetics and hair straightening products.

  • Oxybenzone and Octinoxate

    These ingredients in sunscreens have been linked to damage to coral reefs. Some regions have begun to ban its use in sunscreens due to its environmental impact.

  • Synthetic Fragrances

    They may contain a variety of compounds, some of which may cause allergies or irritation. The lack of transparency in its composition is a common concern.

  • Coal Tar Dyes

    Some of these dyes have been associated with cancer risks and can cause irritation.

  • talcum powder

    There have been concerns, especially in powdered products, about inhalation and its possible association with ovarian cancer, although the evidence is inconclusive.

  • Ethanolamines

  • Synthetic Polymers

    Its impact on the environment is a concern, particularly in terms of its biodegradability.

What does it mean?

It is important to remember that the presence of an ingredient in a product does not necessarily imply a significant risk to health or the environment. The concentration of the ingredient, the way the product is used, and the regulation and safety evaluation by health authorities are key factors.

At TEIA we decide not to use these and hundreds of other ingredients since there is no conclusive research to ensure that they are not harmful. For some, there is already conclusive research into the damage they can cause.

If you have a question related to any of the ingredients that we use or that we decide not to use, contact us and we will gladly answer your questions.
