MICHAEL TODD true organics
"You'll love what's in it. You'll love even more what's not."
Many consumers have started purchasing organic food because they do not want to be exposed to harmful pesticides and chemicals. That’s the same reason consumers are turning to Michael Todd's products made with certified organic ingredients: they want to have all the benefits of great beauty products without unhealthy ingredients. Just like with food, your skin absorbs much of what you place on it, so instead of harmful ingredients use healthy ingredients.
MICHAEL TODD true organics represent a synergy between science and the certified organic plants and fruits we use. The result is an unsurpassed skin care experience that enhances and protects the skin for years to come without the use of potentially harmful ingredients so common in many other brands. The products are developed and made in the United States at FDA Registered and USDA Organic Certified facilities under the guidance of experienced formulators, chemists and registered and certified aromatherapists.
Most other skin care products are made with a cheap water (or aqua) base. Water is not “organic,” and why would you pay for a substantially water product when you can get this from your tap? Other bases used in skin care products include Fruit Juice (loaded with sugar), Alcohol (drying) and Mineral Oil (suffocates the skin) that make up much of their contents. And don't be fooled by so-called “natural” products which don’t have any regulation, so any company can name their products “natural” if they have a few ingredients that come from the earth. Remember, even "dirt" is natural because it comes from the earth. Hundreds of personal care companies are simply using the term “natural” for marketing purposes. We don’t use any of these ingredients. Most every MICHAEL TODD true organics product is beautifully crafted from a base of 100% Certified Organic Aloe Vera Juice now fortified by us in such a unique and novel way that our Aloe base is the subject of a pending patent. This ancient herbal remedy has been called “nature’s first aid kit” because of its anti-bacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. With more than 75 nutrients including 20 minerals, 18 amino acids and 12 vitamins, Aloe Vera hydrates, softens, soothes and nourishes the skin.
To the Aloe Vera base, we add thoughtfully selected organic ingredients known for their effective, results oriented skincare properties. We use as much organics as possible, usually 70-95%. Organically farmed fruits and vegetables can contain between 30-50% more vitamins and minerals than conventionally farmed crops and can work better than conventional products because organically farmed fruits and vegetables increase antioxidant levels by nearly 30 percent compared with produce grown on conventional farms (2008 study). These powerful antioxidants neutralize free radical activity which diminish skin cell damage, resulting in more youthful, healthy skin. And, so you know just what you're getting, we state on each product the percentage of certified organically grown plants and fruits used and if it is vegan.
Take a whiff. MICHAEL TODD true organics smell so good it’s like dessert for your face. And these fragrances are real, no synthetic fragrance or color is ever used in a Michael Todd product. Depending on which product you choose, the first thing you’ll notice are the delicious aromas of sweet orange, calendula, lavender or chamomile, aromatherapy ingredients which promote relaxation and well being. You’ll also recognize the scents of carrot, coconut, cranberry, grapefruit, lemon, tropical fruits, even pumpkin. Then there are sea algae and kelp, green, black and rooibos teas and acai berry to nourish and protect. We use minerals like Charcoal and Kaolin Clay for their detoxifying properties, and refreshing essential oils (olives, jojoba, neem, seabuckthorn seed and tea tree) and ultra-rich moisturizing butters (cupuacu, shea and mango).
We also believe organic ingredients need to be combined with other actives to be really effective. You don't fix your skin by just rubbing an avocado on your face. The key is finding the right blend of organic ingredients and specific minerals, peptides, epidermal growth (repair) factor, DMAE, beneficial acids and other powerful age defying or blemish clearing ingredients to deliver powerful, clinically validated results.
Just as important as what we put in our products... is what we don’t put in. Conventional beauty products can contain pesticides, methyl, butyl and propyl parabens, propylene or butylene glycols, mineral oil, sulphates, PEGs, TEA, DEA, phthalates, triclosan, GMO, silicones, artificial dyes and fragrances, formaldehyde and more. Do you really want these on your skin? MICHAEL TODD true organics are formulated without these potentially harmful ingredients so you can use our products without health concerns.
