WE MAKE CLEAN, SAFE, AND EFFECTIVE PRODUCTS FOR HUMANS IN MOTION.
We started this company with a mission to create effective products that are safe for your body and the environment. We created this page to provide more information about Curie's standards.
- Labeling Curie products as "clean" means that they are safe and can be used without causing harm or disruption to your body. This means:
No endocrine-disrupting chemicals
No animal-derived ingredients
No cancer-causing ingredients
No animal testing
No ingredients on Credo’s Dirty List™
- We sustainably source all of our ingredients and have and always will be cruelty-free.
- We use 100% recyclable packaging, including our mailers which are made up of post consumer recycled (PCR) materials. Starting May 2020, our deodorant tubes switched to 100% PCR material, and we are dedicated to moving to PCR packaging for all of our products by 2021.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLEAN AND NATURAL?
While natural means an ingredient that is found in nature, clean is a broader term that means the ingredient is safe to use without harm or disruption to your body. Both natural and synthetic ingredients can be clean.
While we use natural ingredients whenever possible, what’s most important to us is that everything in our products is safe, effective, and not harmful to our bodies, regardless of whether ingredients are natural by definition.
SAFE CAN SMELL GREAT, TOO.
Including the term “fragrance” on the ingredients list can leave a lot up to imagination so we want to clear it up for you. Every single ingredient you’ll find in our products have been tested for toxicity and safety—and that includes our fragrances, which are made up of essential oils and only safe synthetics.
Not all essential oils are safe to put directly on skin, and not all synthetic ingredients are bad. What really matters in creating our signature Curie scents is not whether a fragrance ingredient is natural or synthetic, it is that it’s safe. Our fragrance partner has a rigorous regulatory and quality assurance process, and we work with them regularly to ensure all existing and future scents are safe for you to use every day.
All of our ingredients meet International Fragrance Associate Standards (IFRA), a global network of standards for the fragrance industry that are some of the strictest in the world.
