They are all EWG top-ranked.

Trustworthy Source Info
The government requires all products to use the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) Latin (English) nomenclature for botanical ingredients, but that can be so confusing. So we include the actual source information to help make it easier to understand. Isn’t that nice?
BEB Organic products are naturally fresh for about 2 years and preserved with a patented botanical blend that uses glyceryl caprylate (made from coconut) combined with natural fruit esters like the acid from sodium anisate (related to licorice) to safely protect the products from fungus and bacteria.
BEB Organic never uses parabens, phenoxyethanol or other potentially unhealthy chemical preservatives that may act like estrogens in the body or donate toxins such as formaldehyde, and 1,4-dioxane.
It is easy to feel confused and overwhelmed when reading a typical ingredient label!
Many of the words in organic chemistry are difficult because the language is simply foreign to most people. Natural ingredients can appear synthetic and potentially risky when, in reality, the ingredients are perfectly healthy and safe.
Here’s an example: “alcohol” simply refers to any chemical structure that includes an “–OH” that stands for “oxygen and hydrogen”. The ingredient ”Ethylhexyl (Octyl) Palmitate” might seem intimidating, but this is a natural derivative of plant butters.
However, many companies misrepresent the claim of “all naturally-derived ingredients.” To avoid getting tricked by this, seek out natural skin care companies that communicate both the chemical and common origins of all ingredients, and that freely provide ingredient information and explanations when requested.
