THE BAD STUFF

Unacceptable Ingredients for every Urban Hydration Product

NO Parabens!

Why Not?

Parabens have been shown to contribute to early puberty in boys and girls, as well as playing a part in increasing cell growth of cancerous tumors and slowing down the reproductive system in males. So why take the risk? We’d rather give you ingredients with all the rewards and much less risk.

NO Paraffins!

Why Not?

While paraffins are known for making your skin feel smooth and silky, they’re actually not moisturizing, hydrating, or repairing your skin for a healthier long term benefit. Because of this, we prefer more natural ingredients that do a better job at truly boosting your skin’s health.

NO Mineral Oil!

Why Not?

Studies have expressed concern over the purity of mineral oil in cosmetic products, saying that while we cannot be conclusive about their exact effects, mineral oil can lead to contamination that affects our health in the long run. It can also lead to breakouts, but most importantly, it doesn’t really do much positive for your skin. We’re committed to infusing our products with ingredients that all have a part to play in your happier, healthier life.

NO Polybeads! 

Why Not?

These tiny bits of plastic floating around in your hair and skincare have been shown to harbor pollutants which can be harmful on your skin or in your hair, so we keep them far away from you. We don’t need the artificial scrubbing power to get your body clean and healthy! You can find this information plus a full list of ingredients that Urban Hydration doesn’t use in their products here.

Clean beauty products aren’t the only way that Urban Hydration is creating healthier lifestyles. They also believe in giving back. Each product sold equals a gallon of water donated to WATERisLIFE. WATERisLIFE provides clean drinking water to families in need in Kibera Slum, Nairobi, Kenya, Africa. In 2018, Urban Hydration dedicated its first clean water drinking well to 300 Kenyan school children. Your purchase will make a huge difference in the lives of so many less fortunate people around the world.
