Do You Know Where Your Skincare Comes From?

Do You Know Where Your Skincare Comes From?

When choosing skincare, knowing where and how your products are made isn’t just curiosity—it's a crucial part of ensuring you're investing in quality and safety. At Earthwoven, our products are scientifically formulated and tested in a professional laboratory setting, a stark contrast to the unregulated realm of homemade skincare.

The Unseen Risks of Homemade Skincare

Lack of Regulation - Homemade skincare products are not subject to any formal regulatory oversight. This absence of regulation should be a significant concern for anyone considering these products. Unlike commercial skincare products, which in New Zealand must comply with the Cosmetic Products Group Standard enforced by the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA), homemade skincare items do not need to meet any safety, efficacy, or labeling standards. They cannot obtain Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certification, which assures products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards.

Quality Control Issues - The lack of regulatory oversight means there is no requirement for homemade skincare producers to follow regulated procedures or use professional equipment. This can result in major inconsistencies between batches. Variations in ingredient concentration and formulation can lead to products that are ineffective at best and harmful at worst. Without the safeguards of regulated production, consumers risk exposure to products that may cause skin irritation, allergic reactions, or other adverse effects.
