Five Ingredients or Less by S.W. Basics
S.W. Basics is a company that has a simple mission when it comes to beauty products. Everything they sell is made from five ingredients or less. They are able to accomplish this by focusing only on the essential ingredients when creating their products. Many commercially available beauty products contain numerous synthetic materials, which are often harmful to our bodies and our environment. Other companies use only natural, organic products, but contain lots of essential oils and trendy additives which can be harmful to a person with sensitive skin or lots of allergies. S.W. Basics products contain none of these.
For example, their hand and body cream, simply called cream, consists of only fair trade Shea butter, organic coconut oil, and organic olive oil. That's only three ingredients! There are no fillers, no water to dry out your skin, and no fragrances or extra essential oils to cause breakouts in sensitive skin.
S.W. Basics lip balm is equally simple. It only has three basic ingredients. The three varieties that are scented have only a single essential oil added for as a scent. The lip balm contains beeswax, extra virgin coconut oil, and cocoa butter. It also comes in cinnamon, peppermint, and citrus varieties in addition to the plain cocoa butter variety. They also sell vegan lip balm which is made from Candellia wax instead of beeswax.
No matter what products you choose to buy, they all contain simple organic ingredients made from plant based materials that won't harm your skin. S.W. Basic products are as much about what they leave out as what they put in.
