We formulate our products to be EU-compliant, and here’s what that means The EU is much stricter about the ingredients that brands there can’t use, and they have over 1,300 that are banned from their formulas. So when we create ours, we stick to the same standards. (Disclaimer: some of the ingredients they’ve banned don’t apply to our formulas in the first placeso that’s why you don’t see close to 1,300 ingredients here.)**

*Some of our formulas include these ingredients but we’re looking into alternatives to remove them as soon as we can.

Octinoxate: 

  • Healthy Glow Sunless Tan SPF 40

**We are currently reformulating our Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 to meet these standards within the next year based on some updates to EU rules that have been made since these products were formulated.
