Welcome to Kossma Beauty!
We're so excited to work with you.
Kossma Beauty is a little different than other clean & green beauty brands, so we want to give you some more information about us to help with your post.
1. Kossma does not formulate with polyunsaturated oils (we call them PUFAS). Instead, we use stable & saturated oils that will not oxidize & turn rancid.
Here is more info on PUFAS: https://kossma.com/blogs/news/what-is-pufa-how-it-negatively-affects-your-skin
2. We take sourcing ingredients very seriously. Most of our ingredients are direct-trade from small family farms. Our beeswax comes from a local apiary; our tallow comes from two regenerative neighborhood farms in Boulder, Colorado and our frankincense (hydrosol, essential oil, resin, and extract) comes from a family business in the USA. We strive for this quality with all of our ingredients & if we can't get it direct-trade, we source from the very best distributors who share our same values with purity & quality.
3. Minimal ingredients, potent actives. This is what really sets Kossma apart from other clean beauty brands. Our focus is to use fewer ingredients in our formulas and better quality + more potent actives and extracts that are scientifically proven to benefit the skin. You won't find a lot of ingredients in our bottles and this is great for people with sensitive skin types, acne, and minimalists.
4. Ecocert Certified, Organic, Wildcrafted...take a look at our ingredients and you'll see we use the safest and most gentle synthetics in the world. Like our EcoCert Decyl Glucoside (sugar-based surfactant that is super gentle and low foam) or our food-grade EcoCert Sodium Benzoate use to preserve our face wash and prevent microbial growth. Our frankincense is wild-harvested from the owners who travel to Africa once a year to bring home (USA) fresh resins. This is the fun part of our business! We love working with such pure, safe, and clean ingredients.
5. We have a small apothecary in Lafayette, Colorado where we make most of our products. We started in 2019 and have organically grown ever since! We love what we do, and we hope you love our products as much as we love making them.
