Coastal Classic Creations

Coastal Classic Creations would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves on CTN Green after having been contacted by Robin Rudoy. Robin found our website through Green People, an organization with whom we have linked hands in an effort to continue our mission to provide a diverse combination of eco-friendly, cruelty-free, vegan, and organic home and body care products.

Robin was so personable and easy to speak with that we found an immediate connection, and we instantly decided that supporting CTN Green through the mechanism of blogging was a way that we could connect with people who may not otherwise find us.

To give you a bit of background into our company, we are a husband-and-wife owned business located approximately 20 miles south of San Francisco on the coast. We started our company in 2001 with goat's milk soap, and in these last seven years have added organic cosmetics, pet care products, fashionable eco-green tote bags, body butters, and much more.

All of our products are cruelty-free, biodegradable, and ph-balanced. They are free from irradiation, organophosphate residues, alcohol, detergents, fragrance oils, phthalates, parabens, propylene glycol, FD&C colorants, cocamide DEA, animal fats, sodium lauryl sulfate, urea, petroleum, lanolin, titanium dioxide, lead, formaldehyde, and Germall II, a preservative whose chemical composition is Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, and Propylene Glycol, to name a few.

Our company believes in full ingredient disclosure, and we hold our suppliers to the same standards.

We sell product, not packaging. We use recyclable jars and biodegradable packaging products in an effort to eliminate the strain of excess waste on our environment. We are fair trade.

Please visit our website http://www.coastalclassiccreations.com/ for more information, and contact us. We would love to hear from you.


Our New Website said...

We would like to add that we have just recently unlocked the mystery regarding the concern surrounding lead in lipsticks and cosmetics in general. Iron oxides, if not filtered by a complex and accurate sheet metaling system, can contain debris particles such as lead, arsenic, and other metals found in nature. However, because of their sub-micron particles, a good company with fine sheet metaling systems can remove all traces of this debris making the oxide pure and debris free. Coastal Classic Creations uses debris-free iron oxides in all of our products. The reason that mica rates poorly in the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is that it is a larger particle, and therefore, it is much harder to remove lead and debris traces from it, leaving those items remaining in the mica. Should you have any further questions or concerns regarding this issue, please do not hesitate to respond to this comment.
