Beauty Ingredients to Avoid

     

    Nuka Beauty, renew your do…Naturally

    Inspired by nature and made exclusively with all natural ingredients, Nuka Organics products are designed to honor your beauty inside and out. Every product in our line is made to a natural standard that is guaranteed to be free from more than 400 chemical based ingredients that are widely used in many mainstream health & beauty products, including some product that are labeled "all natural". Ingredients like chemical based Sulphates, Petrochemicals, PEGs , Parabens, Artificial Fragrances, Mineral Oils, EDTA, and PABA that have been shown to have potentially negative effects on your health. We exclude these ‘nasty’chemicals and use quality natural ingredients to produce world-class products derived from nature to be better for you and your family.
