The Toxic 12

From the very beginning, we’ve been committed to creating safe, non-toxic products for anti-aging skincare — especially important when you consider some of the alternatives that many other companies use. Those alternatives — especially the “Toxic 12” — are more hazardous than many think. They can be carcinogenic, may disrupt your hormone regulation, and in some cases can contribute to miscarriage or birth defects, and even memory loss. By applying these toxic chemicals to your skin, you’re putting them into your bloodstream, expediting their negative effects. The first step to protecting your skin and your well-being? Identifying the Toxic 12 and understanding why they’re no good.

Here they are:

  • Benzoyl peroxide
  • DEA, MEA, and TEA
  • Dioxin
  • DMDM Hydrantoin and Urea
  • FD&C Color and Pigments
  • Parabens
  • PEG
  • Phthalates
  • Propylene Glycol and Butylene
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate
  • Sunscreen chemicals
  • Triclosan

We’re committed to helping you understand what you need to know about each of these ingredients, and how we make all our remarkably effective products without putting you at risk of exposure. That’s part of the Luzern story, and why we pride ourselves on delivering uncompromising purity and powerful results.
