Why We Like Them

Botanical Republic takes pride in their unique production process. While some traditional skincare companies sacrifice quality by using low-grade ingredients like chemical preservatives and cheap unnatural fillers, Botanical Republic goes in the opposite direction. Every single ingredient is included simply to keep your skin looking vibrant, while avoiding harmful ingredients like ethoxylates, parabens, petroleum, formaldehyde, artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, and more. Their small batch, hand blended formulas are made using organic, natural and wildcrafted plant-based ingredients–protecting your skin, the planet, and the people who make your skincare products. 

In addition to protecting the planet, Botanical Republic also protects the animals who call it home. Each formula is certified vegan by PETA, so no animal derived ingredients are used in the products. On top of that, they make sure none of their ingredients are tested on animals–each product is certified Cruelty Free from Leaping Bunny and PETA!

Along with using awesome natural ingredients, Botanical Republic values the importance of being committed to sustainability and the environment. They hand craft all of their products at their headquarters in Los Angeles, this means they can produce goods with less waste and have no need for artificial preservatives. All products are packaged using glass bottles and jars to reduce how much plastic ends up in landfills and oceans. For any paper-based materials, Botanical Republic uses soy-based inks, and their tissue paper is completely acid free and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

As a cherry on top of their other sustainability commitments, Botanical Republic gives back! Botanical Republic has partnered with One Tree Planted to join on their mission to reforest the planet. This means that for each item sold by Botanical Republic, one tree will be planted to combat climate change.

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

Sulfates are synthetic chemical ingredients commonly used in beauty products and household cleaners, like shampoos and dish soaps. You can usually identify sulfates in an ingredients list by looking out for the most common types: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLC) and Sodium Laureth Sulfates (SLES). These chemicals, often derived from petroleum, are used to help form the “lather” we’re used to seeing in our beauty and cleaning products. When used in the shower or sink, these chemicals can flow through the pipes and into our waterways. Synthetic sulfates have been linked to allergic reactions, eye and skin irritation, and hair loss, and some studies suggest they contain carcinogenic ingredients.
