FAQs - Ingredients
Why is it important to use organic ingredients?
Your skin is the largest organ of your body and ingests what you put on it so organic and natural products are the key to a healthy body, healthy skin and a healthy life. Products made with organic ingredients mean that potentially aging, harmful and toxic insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and fertilizers have not been included.
Where does Éminence source its ingredients from?
Éminence sources premium ingredients worldwide to bring you the freshest, most active products available.
Are there fragrances and colors added?
We use non-harmful essential oils and the natural colors of fruits, vegetables, herbs and teas to enhance some of our products' colors and scents.
How is the soap base different from SLS?
Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is a foaming agent used in bubble bath and also a factory floor degreaser and is commonly used in products that foam or bubble. Éminence instead uses Cocamidopropyl Betaine derived from coconut oil as this ingredient is a great non-irritating cleanser.
What preservatives does Éminence use and what is the shelf life of your products?
Éminence uses natural, organic ingredients as preservatives such as honey, lemon, and a glycine derivative which is from soy as well as salicylic acid (under 5%) that is derived from willow bark and rosemary to slow down the oxidization process. The shelf life of the average Éminence product is 12 months.
How is it possible to still make products by hand in the amounts that you must produce each year?

What products are safe for pregnant clients?
We recommend that pregnant clients check with their Doctor for any product contraindications that may be unique to them. It is generally recommended that stimulating products should be avoided.
