Petroleum, butylenes and propylene glycol are used because they are inexpensive fillers and they feel slick on your skin. Unfortunately, these ingredients are most often laced with dioxane and they actually halt the absorption of good ingredients as it acts as a barrier to the inner layers of the skin.
Additionally, Juice Beauty supports less petroleum drilling and exploration and supports finding alternatives for our beauty products (such as antioxidant packed organic juice!!) as well as for our automobiles.
