What's our
Criteria?

For us, clean skincare isn’t all-natural skincare. Products require well-researched synthetic actives like Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, and most importantly SPF, to be effective. There is, however, a long list of synthetic ingredients used in skincare that can cause harm. With that in mind, we make sure the following ingredients aren’t found in our platform:
    • Artificial Color
    • Artificial Fragrance
    • Sulfates
    • Coal Tar
    • 1,4-dioxane
    • Hydroquinone
      • Mercury
      • Mineral Oils
      • Triclosan
      • Parabens*
      • Triethanolamine*
      • Essential Oils*

      GOOD SKINCARE IS:

      CRUELTY-FREE AND FULL OF SCIENTIFICALLY-PROVEN ACTIVES AND PLANT-BASED EXTRACTS 

      The Process

      Find the Brand

      Surprisingly, good skincare is hard to find. The most popular ones aren’t well-formulated and are often overpriced. We go to conventions around the world and research online for hidden gems.

      Formulation Evaluation

      • Are the formulations effective or are they mainly fillers (ex. PEG Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Glycols) and lack extracts and actives? 

       • Are the extracts on the top of the ingredients list (which indicate they have a high concentration)? 
       • Does the formula match the claims of the product?

      Price Matching

      Is the price worth the formulation and the size of the product? Is it overpriced?

      Packaging

      Is it packaged responsibly and sustainably? Is it safe for the type of product (ex. Vitamin C cannot be exposed to light / oxygen, so a pump is a good choice)? Is it aesthetically pleasing?

      Testing

      Our team will test the products over a period of time. We’ll check it across different skin concerns and types to see if it does what it claims to do.

      Accept / Reject

      There are times a brand has made it up to the testing phase, but just doesn’t quite make the cut with the testing team. Of the dozens of brands we’ve tried, very few make it in Seek Space!
