"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 and natural extracts: they want to have all the benefits of great beauty products without harmful 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 represent a synergy between science and the certified organic plants and fruits we use. The result is an unsurpassed skincare experience that enhances the complexion for years to come without the use of potentially harmful ingredients so common in many other brands.
Many 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 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 is one of nature’s most beneficial ingredients and is sought after for its soothing and moisturizing properties. With more than 75 nutrients including 20 minerals, 18 amino acids and 12 vitamins, Aloe Vera hydrates, 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 a blend of science-based cutting edge ingredients and organic ingredients to create formulas that truly change the look and feel of your skin.
Take a whiff. MICHAEL TODD smells 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. All of these natural aromatic extracts scent our products delicately and are kind to your skin, unliked artificial fragrance. 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 soothe. We use minerals like Charcoal and Kaolin Clay for their purifying 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 change the look and feel of your skin by just rubbing an avocado on your face. The key is finding the right blend of organic and natural ingredients and specific minerals, peptides, EGF, DMAE, beneficial acids and other extraordinary anti-aging and skin clarifying ingredients to help promote balance, protect the skin’s youthful look, for a healthier more radiant looking complexion.
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, mineral oil, sulphates, TEA, DEA, phthalates, triclosan, GMO, artificial dyes and fragrances, formaldehyde and more. Do you really want these on your skin? MICHAEL TODD skincare products are formulated without these potentially harmful ingredients.
