Omitting water from skincare and makeup offers many benefits and fits in beautifully with our philosophy at One Love Organics. In our quest to create the perfect skin care line, we started with a simple premise: use only the highest quality, most effective ingredients that directly benefit your skin. Since the primary purpose of preservatives in skincare and cosmetics is to prevent microorganisms that grow and flourish in the presence of water, we take water out of the equation completely whenever possible. Products that do not contain any water (anhydrous) are self-preserving and require only antioxidants such as Vitamin E or rosemary oil, ingredients that help naturally keep the products fresh while benefitting the skin.
Another benefit of no water: a little goes a long way. Our products are highly concentrated and contain the full therapeutic value of the active ingredients, which means our products are effective and less product is needed for each application. You know what that means: less consumption, less packaging and less transportation—so you can show the environment just as much love as you do your skin.
If you want to give waterless a whirl, consider a facial oil, serum, balm or powder, all of which are water-free. Our best-selling Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm is a great example of potency in an anhydrous formula.
Anhydrous formulas, FTW!
