QUALITY NATURAL PRODUCTS
Aradia Naturals uses only high quality ingredients that respect the earth as well as your body. Aradia’s pledge to the consumer is to not make exaggerated claims about products in order to get your business. All Aradia Naturals products are safe, effective, and are made of at least 99% natural ingredients. Product recipes remain true to the wise ways of Mother Nature with a great deal of research going into the understanding of the ingredients, including a study of the healing qualities of herbs and oils. All ingredients used in Aradia Naturals products are sourced through reputable suppliers, while some of the herbs are wild crafted right on site.
PACKAGING THAT FITS WITH PRODUCT INGREDIENTS
Many of Aradia Naturals products contain pure essential oils. Therefore, most of Aradia’s products are packaged in glass jars or bottles.
It is a fact that essential oils may react with plastic or metal containers and products are very likely to become tainted with this type of packaging. Unfortunately, most personal care products are put into plastics because they are cheaper to purchase and less costly to ship.
Aradia Naturals uses mainly glass containers, not only to ensure the quality of products, but because glass is, environmentally speaking, a better choice. Aradia also takes care to not over-package products out of concern and respect for the environment, and all containers are reusable and/or recyclable. Plus, when you receive your parcel in the mail, you will notice that your boxes may have had previous use.
PRESERVATIVES FOR YOUR PROTECTION
Some of Aradia Naturals products contain preservatives as necessary to ensure product safety. These are considered some of the gentlest and safest on the market. Many consumers do not realize that most of what is marketed as ‘100% natural preservatives’ today actually do not do well in preventing microbial growth and, therefore, may leave products vulnerable to a host of problems, such as mold & bacterial contamination. These can then lead to serious health issues (e.g. blindness as a result of contamination in products used around the eyes, as but one example.) Aradia Naturals wants to address these concerns in the most healthful and responsible manner possible, balancing safety with a strong desire and commitment to stick close to nature.
Here are the preservatives used in some of Aradia Naturals products:
Cosmocil CQ: (Polyaminopropyl biguanide) is a gentle effective preservative, parabens-free, and does not release formaldehyde. It is a water soluble preservative that acts against bacteria (including the tough gram negative pathogens) yeast and fungi. Micro organisms do not develop a resistance to it. Cosmocil CQ is low-odor and stable in both heat and light. Recommended storage is 2 years. Originally formulated for the eye and contact lens industry, this preservative has low eye and skin irritancy and low oral toxicity.
Optiphen: is a globally approved liquid preservative system consisting of phenoxyethanol with an emollient base of 1,2-octanediol (a.k.a. caprylyl glycol). Caprylyl glycol also acts as a humectant and wetting agent in cosmetic and skin care formulations. Optiphen provides broad spectrum preservation against bacteria, yeast and mold.
Vitamin E: is a safe, common additive in skin care products. It acts as an anti-oxident in products, thus helping to guard against rancidity in oil-containing formulae. Vitamin E also has a beneficial effect on the skin.
