Beia's Naughty + Nice Lists

Naughty List

You can feel free to get naughty with our products because we eliminated any naughty ingredients that you wouldn’t want on your glowing skin. Beia’s approach to formulation is pragmatic and risk-averse because when it comes to caring for your skin, you can never be too careful.

Below are ingredients that have either shown adverse effects on skin and/or the environment in one or more studies, or that are not well-researched enough for our sky-high standards.

  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Formaldehyde donors
  • Methyliothializonione (MIT)
  • Silicones
  • Synthetic fragrance
  • Essential oils
  • Drying alcohols (denatured alcohol, ethanol, and isopropyl alcohol)
  • SLS or SLES
  • Mineral oil
  • Petroleum derived ingredients, for sustainability
