Good Will Hunting: 10 Ingredients or Less in Every Product


by Corey Radman February 25, 2016

Let's play pretend. Imagine you are hunting for a new skincare line that will take good care of your precious face, that will keep your glow humming along. So you visit the usual stores and notice the labels - even the organic labels - resemble your organic chemistry final from college. 

You ask yourself, "How can all these synthetic, unpronounceable chemicals possibly be good for me?" That was us. This is White & Elm's creation story and it is how we decided that every single product we make will contain 10 ingredients or less. 

We do so because sensitive, reaction-prone skin will be happier with fewer ingredients. Because harsh, petroleum-based chemicals might be appropriate for your car's engine, but they should never touch your face. Because these botanical, plant-powered ingredients are superior at nourishing both your face and your whole body.

White & Elm's 10 Ingredients or Less promise really is the answer you've been hunting for.

How to Find The Perfect SPF: Understanding Sun Protection Factor 101

For sure you need to be wearing a daily moisturizer with a minimum of an SPF 15.  You also need to look for sunscreens that are labeled Broad Spectrum because this means they have passed specific laboratory testing that shows they protect against both UVA and UVB rays.  If you plan to be in direct sun for more than a few hours, please reapply your sunscreen.  Also, if you are planning on swimming or sweating heavily opt for a Water-Proof formula as well.  It's best to avoid chemical sunscreens altogether because let's face it; we don't want the chemicals we put on our skin to end up in our blood stream. Also, because we don't yet know the impact that nanoparticles will have on our health, it's best to use mineral sunscreens that specifically use non-nano minerals.
