Detoxify Your Daily Skincare Routine, Ditch These Common Synthetic Ingredients

Detox Your Beauty Routine Synthetic skincare products can entice us with promises of radical results, but at an unknown cost to our health.  

At OSEA, we believe that, for every synthetic ingredient there is an effective natural alternative.

You can detoxify your daily skincare routine by ditching these common synthetics and making the switch to skincare powered by the best ingredients Nature has to offer.


DITCH: Hydroquinone

Hailed as a “must-have” in skin-lightening technology, it has also been linked to cancer, reproductive toxicity, contact dermatitis as well as the degeneration of collagen and elastin fibers.

DISCOVER:  Brightening Serum

Bearberry Leaf, Indian Gooseberry and Japanese Matsutake Mushroom help to visibly brighten your complexion, diminish the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation on the surface of your skin.

DITCH: Benzoyl Peroxide

This mainstay in acne treatments is a known skin, eye and respiratory irritant. It can also cause redness, stinging, burning and peeling.

DISCOVER:  Ocean Cleansing Mudd, Essential Corrective Complex & Blemish Balm

As a natural alternative to Retinol and Benzoyl Peroxide, we love Macrocystis Algae, Tea Tree, Cypress, and White Thyme which deeply purify and thoroughly decongest oily and blemish-prone skin without drying or irritation.


Ultra concentrated Alpha Hydroxy Acids can cause increase the possibility of sunburn and skin sensitivity for up to a week after they’ve been applied. So much so, that the the FDA is reportedly proposing a warning label for products containing AHAs.

DISCOVER: Ocean Cleanser

Vegan Lactic Acid (from fermented beets) gently removes excess oil and impurities from the surface of your skin and visibly improves skin’s texture and softness while maintaining a hydrated, healthy looking complexion.

DITCH: Fragrance

More than 95% of the chemicals in synthetic fragrances are derived from petrochemicals, such as phthalates, that are linked to liver and breast cancer, birth defects, nervous-system disorders, and diabetes.

DISCOVER: Essential Hydrating Oil

This little roller ball is loaded with an intoxicating bouquet of Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Calendula and Geranium essential oils. Apply to your wrists and neck, or to the ends of wet hair, for an alluring natural fragrance.

All OSEA products are 100% free of synthetic fragrances (and colors).

Conclusion: When you use plant-derived, vegan skincare products, you can feel confident that you are putting the most natural, bioavailable ingredients on your skin. Shop Safe Skincare >
