About Us

Skinnocence™ is a luxury 100% plant-derived natural & organic skincare collection designed for the ultimate purist at heart.  Created by our founder, Cara McEvoy as a quest to overcome her own life long struggle with sensitive skin as well as her family’s, Skinnocence was born out of a desire to bring innocence back to our skin.
 While first generation natural skincare lines went wrong with inadequately formulated products that also still used questionable chemicals and preservatives , we consider our brand the “Natural 2.0” authentic clean-beauty skincare line that truly takes all toxins and harsh chemicals out of the equation. We won’t compromise the integrity of the product by using synthetics for cost reasons.  Every ingredient is meticulously researched and curated by founder, Cara McEvoy based on it’s true ability to offer long-term positive benefits to the health of your skin.  Our products are thoughtfully formulated and carefully handcrafted using the purest of ingredients synergistic to the four basic skin types using a holistic approach that benefits the entire body.
Skinnocence set’s itself apart by formulating our products based on skin type so that each treatment optimally benefits your specific skincare needs. Approximately 75-85% of our ingredients are certified organic and that number continues to grow as our brand flourishes.  In addition, our skincare line incorporates dynamic anti-aging actives at an above average ratio combined with only the best of what nature gives us – with no additional skin degrading synthetic fillers or barriers – which enables key nutrients and actives to rapidly penetrate deeper layers of your skin resulting in a healthful radiance that begins at a cellular level. In addition, many of our product are offered with options to purchase according to our clients skin type because we believe skincare is not a one-size-fits-all solution.
Skinnocence is not about attempting to put the latest lab created botox in a bottle.   It’s about harnessing what is true in nature and what we know is inherently good for our skin – mind – body and souls. 
We do not stock products at this time.  Each order is handcrafted and made-to-order which means your  product arrives fresh with extremely active ingredients.

Take a look at the ingredients in some of your lotions, creams, & cleansers.  If you see a lot of big words you can barely pronounce mixed with a bunch of numbers after dashes – chances are there’s a lot going on in your cosmetics that has no benefit to your actual skin. It’s important to note, however, that not all chemicals are bad and that there are synthetic, man-made ingredients that actually impart benefits to our skin.  We’re here to inform you which synthetics and chemicals to stay away from. Without getting preachy, the bottom-line is that regardless of what the FDA claims as safe, they do not regulate the cosmetics industry. They set guidelines with very minimal enforcement, if any outside of the Fair Labeling Act and SPF regulations.  Meanwhile, studies continue to show that there is reason for concern. Low to moderate exposure to certain chemicals used in our personal care products might be deemed safe, however repeated exposure to those chemicals that make up our beloved DAILY regimens are constantly coursing through our blood and building up over time.  To compound the issue – what we also don’t realize is that many synthetic ingredients are designed to do our skins job for them.  For instance, synthetic emollients (skin softening and skin barrier agents) like Dimethicone are stripping our skin of the ability to protect and create a barrier for itself naturally. Dimethicone creates a seal over the skin to lock moisture in and keep skin hydrated for longer – which may seem great at first.  However, it’s really just a silicone film sitting on your face all day which ends up interfering with your skins natural need to shed dead skin cells, sweat out toxins and regulate temperature.  After a while, your skin becomes dependent and stops producing it’s own moisture.  The long-term result is that your skin begins to look dry, dull and wrinkled over time.  Our skin has been drinking the kool-aid and has lost it’s will to provide for itself.  At the end of the day, there’s a great deal of mystery surrounding a lot of what goes into commercial skincare and long-term use has shown reason for concern.  Why would we continue to spread mystery on our faces and bodies?  It only seems natural to use personal care products with real, whole ingredients – things we know aren’t going to hurt us and our environment.  After all, is it is a known fact that eating a clean, whole foods diet is ideal for our health.  Shouldn’t this translate to our skincare?  Okay…we may have gotten a tad preachy there…but that’s just our passion!

WHAT’S UNIQUE ABOUT SKINNOCENCE?

Natural skincare seems to be a wildly popular and growing market these days. So what’s different about Skinnocence?
 
We believe in full transparency and disclosure as to what exactly we’re using in our products.  We want to educate and develop products with integrity.

Skinnocence is the culmination of a deep breath of research into what our skin needs and what natural elements do for different skin types.  We also look at skincare with an holistic approach and our products and treatments are designed to not only benefit our skin on the exterior, but to also have an impact on our mind body and soul .  Our skin is the gatekeeper for nutrients that feed our entire bodies from the outside in.  Each product in Skinnocence’s collection has been thoughtfully formulated with a blend of different natural oils, botanicals and herbs based on this principal. Skinnocence is also a balanced skincare line formulated based on skin types and touches upon all the nutrients your skin needs to be healthy and luminous. Skincare is also about variety.  Your skin craves and needs nutrients from different sources.  Skinnocence products are formulated using a diverse collection of pure, cold-pressed, Hexane-free, organic carrier oils, herbal extracts and essential oils. Carrier oils are nutrimental base oils like Jojoba and Grapeseed that nourish and ‘carry’ nutrients down to the deep layers of the skin.  Skinnocence not only uses a diverse blend of carrier oils in each treatment  but also includes bonus potent nourishing oils that compliment and add value to your skincare regimen.  Our complete regimens from cleanser to night cream build upon the prior treatment with a new oil or blend of oils and botanicals that elevate your skincare regimen for your specific skin type. Our moisturizers and treatment serums are formulated for specific skin types and are PH balanced and hypoallergenic.  Going Skinnocence means your skin gets exposure to a lot of different goodness.
Skinnocence anti-aging treatments use the safest maximum recommended amount of key anti-aging actives such as Hyaluronic Acid.  We don’t skimp on actives for cost reasons.  Our goal is for our clients to see true results when it comes to reversing the signs of aging. 
All Skinnocence ingredients serve a  purpose that directly and naturally benefits your skin.  There are never fillers, additives or dangerous penetration enhancing ingredients such as Propylene Glycol that degrade your skin over time. 
In addition approximately 75-85% of our ingredients are certified organic.  What we cannot yet provide organically is 100% plant or vegetable based using no harsh chemicals in the processing phase and carefully procured from our trusted partners. 
Every product is 100% biodegradable, eco-friendly and creates zero hazardous run-off into our waterways.  Our products are packaged in #1  PETE Recyclable bottles and our wrapping is made from 100%  recycled and recyclable materials.
Our emulsifier of choice is derived from olives and is a complex combination of fatty acids, Sorbitan Olivate and Cetearyl Olivate – chemically similar to the lipidic composition of the skin surface. It is biodegradable and approved for use as an ingredient in ECOCert Certified Organic products. Emulsifiers are necessary in order to marry oil and water formulas together.  Skinnocence does offer treatments with an emulsifying system.  We know it’s hard to break away from a traditional style lotion or cream, however many of our treatments do not use an emulsifier.  You will quickly realize the difference and it may feel odd at first, but we feel the nutrients and vitamins can be more quickly absorbed without the use of an emulsifying system. 

Finally –  Skinnocence products are purely made to order with love ensuring a fresh potion with superior bio-active ingredients delivered to your door.
