our promise to you
there is so much marketing jargon out there that it’s hard to know exactly who’s who and what’s what. we promise to be clear, direct and transparent in our message. the truth is that the beauty industry needs to clean it’s act up. our aim is to share as much information as we can, to help you make educated choices. traditional beauty products contain some nasty things. things like parabens, which disrupt your estrogen pathway & cause breast cancer cells to grow and divide. phthalates, which increase the flexibility of plastics & vinyls and can be found in nearly everything. they can cause damage to the liver, kidneys, lungs & reproductive system. coal tar, a very common ingredient is listed as a 10 on a scale of 1-10 from ewg.org. yowza. these are a few in a very long list of commonly used ingredients that are harmful to your body. it’s about time we starting asking for better. that’s why the clean beauty movement got started and that’s why hush + dotti was created.
we are committed to providing a safe place for all of your beauty needs. if you are wondering why is so this important, it’s because the FDA does not regulate the beauty industry. period. therefore any company can put anything in their products with no repercussions. scary stuff. the skin is the largest organ of your body. it acts as a sponge for anything you put on it. your products get absorbed through your skin and into your bloodstream. all toxins then need to be filtered through your liver, kidneys and even lungs. you must read the labels on your products as cautiously as you read the labels on your food sources. we are committed to providing the finest nontoxic, high quality, plant based, cruelty free products in the world.
for example if you have celiac’s disease or are gluten intolerant and carefully follow a specific diet, but still don’t feel great – that’s a sign that something in your beauty routine may be making you sick. wheat and its derivatives are widely used in a multitude of ways. to be healthy, we must also be mindful. make it a habit to research anything that will be used on your face, body, home, pets, yard and especially on your children. their developing organs are at greater risk to toxins.
yeah, but do they work?
we know that there can be a stigma attached to using “natural” products. we know that there’s a little voice inside that may scowl in disbelief. the truth is not only do they work, but they will blow your mother loving mind.
just because we live in an era of technology, science & information doesn’t negate the fact that we are still humans. mother nature holds the key to living a long, healthy and satisfying life. the genesis of modern medicine is rooted in herbs, plant based remedies and tonics. today, we have circled back to that and homeopathic remedies have changed the lives of millions. so why should our beauty products be any different? plants & minerals are amazing for creating long wearing, well pigmented and medicinal minded skin care & makeup. you can now say goodbye to all of those funky ingredients without sacrificing a thing.
