The Philosophy That Drives Performance
Every skincare product made for IslandGirl Aesthetics is developed under a set of strict guidelines, a "creed" if you will, that ensures the results you demand for clear, resilient and beautiful healthy-looking skin you deserve.
The Wisdom of Nature Declaration in Support of Beautiful Skin
These guidelines promise high-performance ingredients at effective levels combining the wisdom of nature with the power of science. Whenever possible, plant and mineral-derived ingredients are used instead of those from animal or petroleum sources. Bio-effective ingredients such as multi-functional antioxidants, phytonutrients, and clinically-tested peptides and botanicals are used to create the best results-oriented skincare. We perform stringent testing to make sure every product made for our brand is effective, stable and safe. Each time you open a jar or bottle you'll know with confidence you're on your way to delivering beautiful skin.
Our products are subjected to some of the most rigorous testing of any skincare available.
Stability Testing | Microbiology, heat, cold, light stability and container compatibility are tested before any product is released to market.
Dermatologist-Testing | Products developed for sensitive skin are tested, then reviewed and approved by board-certified dermatologists prior to the product's release.
Ophthalmologist-Approved | Products used around the eyes are subjected to pre-market approval by qualified ophthalmologists.
Ingredient Efficacy Testing | Every performance ingredient must have documented proof of efficacy before it can be featured in a product made for our brand.
Consumer Approval | New products are submitted to a panel of consumers for performance testing and review. Only products demonstrating definitive, reproducible results are approved.
There's no reason why animals must suffer because our clients want to care for their skin. So the only animals who test our products are humans to make sure your products work!
No Unwanted Ingredients
You'll never find our products loaded with unwanted or skin-sensitizing ingredients, so you won't see:
• MIT (methylisothiazolinone)
• MEA (monoethanolamine, potential carcinogen ammonia compound used in cosmetics as emulsifiers or foaming agent )
• DEA (diethanolamine, potential carcinogen ammonia compound used in cosmetics as emulsifiers or foaming agent )
• Mineral Oil
• Propylene Glycol
• Sodium Lauryl or Laureth Sulfates
• Bovine-sourced ingredients (such as collagen, elastin, colostrum, placenta extract)
• Formaldehyde-releasing preservatives (imidazolidinyl urea, diazolidinyl urea, DMDM hydantoin, quaternium-15)
And rarely, will you see:
• Synthetic fragrances or colors
• Solvent alcohols
• Pore-clogging ingredients (lipids, which are used in some moisturizing products, can block pores)
• TEA (triethanolamine, potential carcinogen ammonia compound used in cosmetics as emulsifiers or foaming agent)
You will find gentle preservative systems that protect the stability and integrity of our products. And, because science has now proven chronic inflammation is the bottom-line of aging, soothing ingredients are often added even when sensitivity or irritation isn't a problem.
Many cosmetic companies rely on Over-The-Counter (OTC) drugs to treat common skin problems. Our products offer gentle, drug-free alternatives to help you achieve great-looking skin. With the exception of sunscreens, each product is completely drug-free. Experience highly effective, non-drug solutions for a wide variety of skin problems, including acne prone and rosacea prone skin. You'll see the results you deserve without the discomfort of side effects often associated with OTC drugs.
Our skincare contains effective levels of performance proven ingredients, not just the ingredient "trend of the moment" at low levels to make them cheap enough for "price shoppers." Every ingredient is scrutinized for efficacy, stability and safety to assure our skincare delivers the noticeable results we promise and clients expect every time.
