OUR INGREDIENT COMMITMENT
AT SPELA THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE INGREDIENTS THAT WE USE IN OUR PRODUCTS
We are committed to creating products that are always vegan and cruelty free. Additionally, each product has to meet our strict ingredient safety standards. As part of our guiding principles we ensure that all of our products comply with the regulations of the European Union, which has banned over 1300 ingredients in cosmetics (while the US has only banned 11!). We believe beauty products should look good, feel good, and be good for you.
We refuse to use any ingredient that has a known harmful effect in any of the following ways:
Any substance that can cause hypersensitivity of the immune system
Any substance that has the potential to cause cancer in living tissue. Exposure to carcinogens can occur from the inhalation, ingestion, or absorption of these substances
Any substance that can cause alteration in the chemical structure of DNA. May be naturally repaired but will not result to 100% efficiency. Un-repaired DNA may damage and accumulate in nonreplicating cells such as in the brain and muscles.
Interference with the body's endocrine system, causing negative effects on metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep and mood.
Ingredients known to cause potential contamination of water and soil
Any substance known to interfere with the reproductive organs, that can alter sexual behavior, decrease fertility, cause menstrual changes, offset puberty, increase risk of miscarriages, increase premature births and increase risk of reproductive cancers.
Exposure to substances that alters normal nervous system activity, may damage or kill nerve endings, or cause damage to the brain tissue.
Occurs in major organs fed by the circulatory system (heart, kidneys, brain, eyes) which can sustain damage due to uncontrolled hypertension, hypotension, or hypovolemia
