From artificial fragrance and harsh chemicals to hormone-disrupting and petroleum-derived ingredients, there are so many ingredients that should be avoided, particularly when they learned about the impact these elements might have on babies and children’s developing systems. As a result, they set out to formulate a line based on ingredient safety, integrity and performance, and have also taken the steps to get CertClean certified.

Between school drop-offs and pickups, the founders studied industry standards and set their bar higher. They worked with a team of scientists to formulate their products and have them tested and retested for safety, efficacy, and stability. They took field trips to the local, environmentally responsible facility to which they had entrusted the manufacturing process.

Sootsoap Supply Co. Ltd.

Unika

UniKa Cosmetics is a Canadian cosmetics company created with the well-being and beauty of women in mind. It was developed out of the founder’s personal need for skincare products that gave visible results: results that they could actually see and feel.

After years of trying a lot of different products and after doing some research, Patricia found out that for a vast majority of products on the market, quality is hard to achieve naturally, without the standard and often toxic petrochemicals. To her surprise, she noticed that this applies to both skincare and colour. So instead of continuing the frustrating search for the ideal cosmetic line, Patricia decided to create the solution for herself: along with some of the most innovative and creative professionals in the cosmetic industry, she set out to create a line of natural and organic skincare and makeup that would actually work, a line that is totally PABA-free, talc-free, boron nitride-free and worthy of the CertClean certification: the UniKa Cosmetics line.

Upfront Cosmetics

Upfront Cosmetics specializes in salon-quality, eco-friendly haircare bars that are good for all hair and scalp types. Each of their 65-gram bars replaces up to 3 bottles of liquid shampoo. Formulated with all hair types in mind, their bars are free from sulphates, parabens, and synthetic fragrances. Their Leaping Bunny certified bars are vegan and pH balanced for optimal scalp health.

Veriphy Skincare

Veriphy is a luxury skincare line powered by nature and backed by science. All products feature PhytoSpherix (phytoglycogen), a new plant-derived skin care ingredient that provides impactful results. Vegan, cruelty-free, CertClean certified, sustainably focused, Veriphy is committed to providing clean & effective formulations.

Veriphy is led by women in STEM. As a result, one of the brand’s early initiatives is to promote and celebrate other women in fields where they are largely underrepresented.

Wild Coast Perfumery

Wild Coast Perfumes are vegan, completely natural. Each fragrance contains a blend of 20 to 30 plant-based ingredients, including sustainable, wild-harvested components such as lichens, leaves, needles, or flowers gathered from the wild coast.
Wild Coast Perfumery believes in respecting nature. Their perfumes do not contain any synthetics, artificial fragrance oils, parabens, dyes, phthalates, or animal products ever. Wild Coast Perfumery is committed to using only pure plant-based essential oils, absolutes, and resins. All of their handcrafted perfumes are created, aged, and bottled (in recyclable or reusable bottles) in their artisan perfumery on Vancouver Island.

Zorah biocosmétiques

Zorah’s mission is to use science to offer products that use healthy, organic, and powerful ingredients. Each Zorah product is formulated with organic argan oil, known to Moroccans as the “precious oil”. Extremely rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, vitamin E, and sterols, argan oil thoroughly moisturizes and nourishes the skin, giving it a soft appearance and a beautifully smooth texture. 100% made in Quebec, Zorah is passionate about the environment and protecting the planet.
