At Luba our primary concern is the health and safety of those using our products. With that in mind, we must balance producing the most natural/organic product with producing a bacterial safe and stable product.
Because skin care formulations (lotions and creams) are oil in water (aloe vera juice) they do require preservative systems to make them stable, protect against mold, bacteria and make them safe to use over time. For this reason, it has been necessary in some of the products to add a natural preservative system based on natural ingredients, Orange Oil, Lemon Grass Oil, and Sesame Oil.
Our formulations have been carefully formulated, using superior ingredients that are completely skin beneficial. Our production runs are small, to preserve the quality and integrity contain in nature’s best offering of vital nutrients.
We can't totally remove toxins like petrochemicals and other irritants from your day to day activities but we can minimize your exposure by NOT using synthetics, artificial fragrances, alcohol (denat.), parabens (including Japanese honeysuckle), phenoxyethanol, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, phthalates, DEA, harmful preservatives, or other toxic irritants in our formulations.
We do not use ingredients that have undergone so much chemical refining and processing that they no longer retain their original color, or scent, and devoid of essential fatty acids, and vitamins, ingredients that are left with toxins and void of its healing and medicinal properties.
Our naturally derived ingredients retain their botanical bio-actives.
Because we use natural ingredients in our products, there are batch variations that will happen from year to year and from crop to crop. Variations in soil, temperature and time of year for harvest affect all plant material, and batches will change in color, texture, and smell. This does not affect the quality of our product but it does let you know as a conscious consumer that you are purchasing truly natural products.
Luba is dedicated to producing safe and effective, all natural luxury care products that nourish your skin with vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids contained in nature's best offerings of oils, butters, botanical extracts and essential oils.
Our products' natural organic ingredients will never compromise your skin's appearance and health.
