Environmental Stewardship

Formulations - What We Use & What We Don't

TreesAt Gilchrist & Soames, we've partnered with Purdue University's Earth Sciences Department to analyze post-consumption effects of each of the raw materials used in our products. We evaluated and continue to study aquatic toxicity, aerobic biodegradability, anaerobic biodegradability and bioaccumulation to ensure that our high-quality products have the lowest possible environmental impact.

All G&S collections feature one of our proprietary formulations:

Signature. The Gilchrist & Soames Signature Formulations contain no parabens, phthalates, petrol-derived ingredients, mineral oil, urea, DEA, TEA or propylene glycol. They do feature food-grade, naturally derived USP glycerin and natural conditioning agents from honey and the Brassica plant instead of petrochemicals. We're also committed to cruelty-free development and vow to never test our products on animals.

.Naturally Kind™. With Gilchrist & Soames Naturally Kind™ Formulations, all of the virtues of our Signature Formulations are combined with another layer of skin- and Earth-friendliness. They are free of all sulfates (SLS/SLES).

Our vision for responsible luxury doesn't end with formulations and materials. We're also committed to cruelty-free development and we pledge to never test our products on animals. Step by step, it all adds up to a green today and an even greener tomorrow.
