United States law does not require cosmetic products and ingredients, other than color additives, to have the FDA’s approval before they go to the market. There are no obligated standards for natural skin care products and several high-end commercial brands use ingredients that can be harmful to the environment or to human health. Emulsifiers, fillers, mineral oils, parabens, petroleum, sodium laurel sulfate, and synthetic materials are only a few of the many ingredients we ban in our products. At Green Alley, we have created our own standards to ensure that our products are natural, cruelty-free, and have never been tested on animals. We do not hide our product ingredients from our consumers; ingredients can be easily accessed on every product page, under the "INGREDIENTS" tab.
