Since 2003, Beauty Ethics has been about helping clients find the best, safestskin care products and makeup, as well as about teaching people how to create ideal routines that fit their particular goals, lifestyle and personality.
We’ve sold perfume-free and dye-free products for sensitive, breakout-prone and sun-damaged skin since the beginning, and the new product line continues in that tradition. What’s new and different about our BE brand is that we’ve aimed to streamline and beautify the products themselves. If a routine is easy and fun to do, better day-to-day skin follows!
In addition, we’ve removed plant extracts from the formulations in order to better serve our sensitive clients. The ingredient lists contain just the essentials to achieve the results you’re seeking. Because our chemist Amanda (read about her here, she's amazing!) is so knowledgable about safety regulations and ingredient profiles, we can assure our clients that our line is in keeping with the latest research about skin and body health.
The positive feedback we’ve received so far has been very exciting! If you don’t absolutely love something though, as always, returns are accepted for a 100% refund, no matter how long you’ve used a product. Finally, thank you for your support and suggestions over the years, without which this line would have never been born! This is a line specially created for and with BE clients, and we couldn’t be happier to finally deliver it to you!
How do these differ from the BHA/salicylic and AHA/glycolic products you’ve offered me in the past? Should I switch? You may have tried gel, lotion or other liquid versions of exfoliating acids we’ve sold and liked them. No worries, we still sell those! We created these new ones because we believe liquids work a little faster than other delivery methods, and these were designed to be gentler than the other versions so they can be used daily without excessive dryness. Can I use more than one exfoliant? If, so, does the order matter? Absolutely you can use more than one! Combination skin types in particular might benefit from different exfoliants for different jobs. You could use one in the morning and one at night or each twice a day. It really just depends on your skin type--experiment! See what works best for you. We generally recommend you use Glycolic Glow first, after cleansing, then the other two acids directly over areas of concern (e.g., areas with clogged pores, because using Pore Perfector and Smoothing Solution all over might not be necessary). Still have questions? Schedule a free consult at beautyethics.com! Can I apply these to the skin directly instead of using a cotton pad? You CAN...however, the benefit of using a cotton pad is that it sweeps off the gunk you’re dissolving with the exfoliant! You can usually see some good stuff (like oil and dead skin) come off on the pad. So, that’s what we recommend. What precautions should I take with this type of product? Always use a daytime SPF 30+ when using acid exfoliants to prevent sunburn. If allergic to aspirin, do not use Pore Perfector. You may not know you have this allergy until you try it, though. We offer sample sizes of all liquid exfoliants to all first-time users--just ask! And finally, do not apply Glycolic Glow or Smoothing Solution to broken skin because you don’t want to over-exfoliate skin that’s trying to heal.
