What does "Clean beauty" actually mean?

Just like eating clean, clean beauty rejects any harmful chemical, cruelty-free, and produced with low to zero environmental impact. Dangerous product ingredients? No, thanks. Parabens, phthalates, sulphates, and synthetic fragrances are out of clean beauty’s vocabulary.

Why does clean beauty matter?

With the heightened concerns about the safety of beauty products, the clean beauty movement was created. The movement is about the transparency of brands about their ingredients. Many ingredients have been linked to medical conditions in the past and continue to grow as of now. It is vital that consumers are aware of what ingredients are in the products they use. 

Clean beauty doesn’t use these following ingredients:

  • Parabens 
  • Phthalates
  • Sulfates
  • Synthetic fragrances
  • Talc
  • Silica
  • Hydroquinone
  • Refined petroleum

Wuli has believed in clean beauty since day one. We created gender-neutral hair care products without compromising on safety and health. We also believe that the greatest source for beauty and grooming ingredients on earth – is the earth itself. Synthetics and other artificial ingredients are not our thing here. Never, ever.
