Healthy Skin. Beautiful You.
What we put in our products is as important as what we do not use. You will never find:
- Cheap or rancid carrier oils
- Inexpensive fillers
- Petroleum oils and jellies
- Mineral oil
- Gluten, dairy or soy
- Paraffin or parabens
- Harsh bead exfoliators
- Synthetic dyes/colorants
- Synthetic fragrances or perfumes
Here at Ayr Skin Care, our goal is to provide handcrafted products carefully prepared in small batches and made from natural and organic products of the highest quality. Our philosophy is that you’ll not only feel the difference that a luxurious product imparts, you’ll need less of it to experience vibrant and visible results. We call it “the ultimate in affordable luxury.”
We also say “we’re making the products everyone wants, but can never find.” You know, the products that say they’re mostly natural, but have cheap fillers. Or, the one’s that say you’ll look younger on day 1, but you find “not so much.” Or, the products that actually dry you out, so you’ll use more. Yes, they do exist.
Every single ingredient is thoughtfully added to provide maximum skin protection and anti-aging results. Our products are also carefully formulated to provide a spa-like experience. And so we let the aromas of our superior oils and fruit extracts provide you additional antioxidant benefits to assist your skin to heal and to reduce the ravages brought on by our overly stressful lives.
Not only are our products driven by sourcing the highest quality, they are carefully chosen to be non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic which makes them suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive. Our products provide your skin ultimate healing properties, skin softening and super-hydration, while eliminating all irritants, even the “natural” ones, found in soy, egg, wheat, or dairy.
You will also never see the generic term “fragrance” in our ingredients list. This is because throughout the industry the term “fragrance” can be used to cloak numerous and potentially irritating ingredients. You’ll only know they are there when your skin reacts. Also, we never use synthetic colors, scents, or “perfumes”.
A complete list of what we don’t use can be found at the bottom of this page.
Ayr Skin Care is devoted to using the most natural, organic, and luxurious ingredients available. However, we have also found that some “natural and organic” ingredients in some skin care lines that can actually irritate or harm delicate or sensitive skin. We formulate our products using both natural ingredients and safe synthetics when appropriate that are always formulated to be gentle on all skin types.
Bettering our world
We also pride ourselves on crafting environmentally ethical products that marry the centuries old benefits of ancient healing oils, butters, fruit acids, and soothing aromatics, with modern practices that are always responsibly sourced and sustainably harvested. Whenever possible, we source organic products directly derived from their places of origin.
Improving people’s lives
Many of our ingredients are only found in some of the world’s poorest nations. We proudly purchase these directly sourced products knowing that we are providing valuable income to support women, families, and entire communities. Many of these economic and fair trade initiatives, some led by the United Nations, support entrepreneurial farmers and protect women and children from economic hardships.
Protecting our environment
We purposefully concentrate our products so you use less (and purchase less frequently) while still enjoying radiant results. We also put into daily practice a policy of minimal packaging and best practices in manufacturing to do what we can to limit over-stressing our landfills.
In shipping our products, we use post-consumer recycled packing materials wherever possible. After they have safely transported your order, all of our packing materials can be recycled again.
Taking care of the vulnerable.
Ayr Skin Care is a great friend of all animal welfare initiatives, including the preservation of orangutan habitats blighted by improper palm oil production. We are excited to report that our products and carefully sourced ingredients are never, ever tested on animals.
And finally, Ayr Skin Care is a proud member of the Greener Life Club, a world leader in cosmetic ingredient manufacturers that advocates green practices in life and in business.
This is Ayr Skin Care’s promise to you.
Healthy Skin. Beautiful You.
