Our Main Ingredients
HSC products cater to sensitive skin and we choose our ingredients with your sensitive in mind. For those of you who do not have particularly sensitive skin, there is still a host of reasons to use and love HSC products.
No Sulfates, No Parabens, No Phthalates, No Harsh Preservatives, so what IS in HSC products? Raw natural oils, butters, essential oils, waxes and plant based powders which contain skin nourishing vitamins and minerals for starters. Did you know that what normally passes for a bar of soap is actually a condensed detergent bar? Yuck, right? If you suffer from itchy skin despite having no skin rash or other skin condition you may want to read the ingredient list on that "soap" bar you've been using. More than likely, if you are using a popular mass produced "soap", it's full of detergents, foaming agents, chemicals, etc. and could be the cause of itchy skin irritation. If you think about how you would normally grab one of those bars in your shower, lather up and rub that detergent into your skin on a daily basis, you can see my point. Real natural soap contains none of those types of ingredients and not only cleanses, but helps maintain skin health. At HSC we take great pride in handcrafting skin nourishing real soap. We also use the same philosophy to create our skin moisturizers, lip balms, bath bombs and more.
We know that once you try HSC products you will see and feel the positive difference real natural ingredients make...the Healthy Skin Choice.
