I am tempted to try the TS which is still available for $3 more.  I wonder why they never seem to discuss the ingredients except for olive oil and shea butter.  What is NOT in these products and I wonder why they do not qualify for Clean Beauty.  Anyone know?

It contains fragrance which is why it's not 'clean'.

@SilleeMee   I don't believe having fragrance disqualifies it for clean beauty if they use natural oils as a fragrance

@Teddixat 

The list of ingredients just says "Fragrance". It does not specify it's origin.

@sippinwhiskey   Even "Clean Beauty" can  have have a long ingredient deck that hosts could not pronounce and most consumers would not know what those do. I assume they make it easier by naming a few familiar ones. 

 

@Johnnyeager  posted what's NOT in the product, but what is in there?

It also contains isohexadecane which is a petroleum-based paraffin compound (solvent/emollient).

 

ETA- Many petroleum-based chemicals have words used to describe them ending with '-cane' or '-ane'. When you see a word ending with -cane or -ane then most likely it's made from petroleum.

 

Same can be said for words ending in '-ene'

@SilleeMee   ...so confusing since it states it has no petroleum. How can they state that if there is a petroleum-based paraffin compound? Clean Beuty is not always "clean" and each company has their own definition of what that means. I'm hoping it could be better regulated across the board.

That product is not a clean one. It's not listed as such.

@SilleeMee  Ah ha! Thanks.
