Health Food For Your Face

"This is great moisturizer. Very effective but light, not greasy. Doesn’t anger my sensitive skin. Full of good ingredients - feels like health food for your face. And a little goes a long way! I’m definitely not “settling” for plastic-free, this is better than my previous go-to mainstream fancy brand."

GUESS WHAT?

'Clean Ingredients'
DOesn't mean
Clean Skin Care

While many companies now offer clean or natural ingredients (and zero animal testing) they can't always say the same about their packaging, which often contains the very chemicals - including phthalates - their products are supposed to be ‘free-from’.

"Phthalates are added to a dizzying array of plastics, to make them flexible [and] durable. They easily escape from these products as vapors or particles, and are found in the urine of nearly every American, as well as in blood, sweat, breast milk, semen and ovarian fluids." (THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 17, 2020)

Add to this the laundry list of environmental - and animal protection - issues of plastic pollution, and we can confidently say plastic packaging makes no sense.

While glass and paper are better from a health perspective, they're heavy to transport for single use items, which leads to higher emissions than plastic. (The Globe & Mail)

PACKAGING SO NATURAL,
WE CALLED IT A CHRYSALIS

Beyond its natural beauty, something magical happens inside a Chrysalis. A transformation, or metamorphosis, from caterpillar to Monarch butterfly.

The science and beauty of this natural process inspired our own Chrysalis beautypods™, where packaging and ingredients work together to transform and elevate the natural beauty of your skin and our planet. It's lighter than glass, more sustainable than paper (no trees that take a lifetime to grow and cut) and it's 100% backyard compostable.

Made with natural waxes, tree resins, oils, algae and hemp, our patented packaging can go on your skin or back to the earth.

THE CHEMICALS IN MOST SKIN CARE PRODUCTS ARE NOT REGULATED

"Almost every chemical you can imagine has been regulated [in the US], except for the chemicals we use in every day personal care products." (HBO docu-series 'not so pretty' )

Toxic Ingredients are common in everyday skincare products

From toxins such as phthalates, formaldehyde, parabens, triclosan and mercury, to counterfeit cosmetics containing lead, we are just beginning to understand what actually goes into our skin care products. (Check out these great documentaries for more info - Broken, Toxic Beauty, Not so Pretty).

Canadian Regulations VS EU & USA

"The Canadian government regularly updates a Cosmetic Ingredient Hotlist that includes hundreds of chemicals and contaminants prohibited and restricted from use in cosmetics such as formaldehyde, triclosan, selenium, nitrosamines and 1,4-dioxane — all of which are allowed in U.S. products." (- safecosmetics.org,)

WE DO THE RESEARCH
SO YOU CAN JUST GLOW

In addition to clinically proven ingredients like hyaluronic acid, squalene and Vitamin C, we doubled down on moisture retention through a partnership with a research facility in southern Ontario where they naturally grow - through fermentation - a single celled algae, Euglena gracilis, that produces a highly pure (>95%) and crystalline form of ß-1,3-glucan, otherwise known as beta-glucan.

"beta-glucans can lock in 20% more moisture than hyaluronic acid." (Noblegen)

Health food for your face

This is great moisturizer. Very effective but light, not greasy. Doesn’t anger my sensitive skin. Full of good ingredients - feels like health food for your face. And a little goes a long way! Just a scant fingertip-worth is enough, at least in the midwest summer, I could see needing a little more in winter. I’m definitely not “settling” for plastic-free, this is better than my previous go-to mainstream fancy brand.

Kate G.

I love it!

It is light and easy to apply and the scent is pleasing but subtle. It doesn't make my skin feel hot. I don't know if it is making me look ten years younger, but I shall continue using it anyway!

Susan Johnson

What I was looking for

I just wanted a nice, eco-friendly moisturizer to deal with New England winter and summer. Now I have it, with a clean conscience and no plastic. Very satisfied. And it works better than the stuff I had before.

Andre Behrens

Feels so good

This cream is just perfect for me. I have mature skin. When I apply the cream it feels good. It absorbs quickly. My skin feels soft and moisturized until the next wash. Not greasy at all.

Sylvie Lachance-Harrison

Light and Powerful!

I was skeptical as I have very sensitive aging skin. At 51 my skin needs some care. After switching to the Etee facial bar I thought I'd go ahead and give the face cream a try. SO glad I did! Lightweight but deep moisturizing without residue and I'm not putting more plastic out into the world. My skincare routine is set now. Though I'd love to see a face scrub at some point :)

Stefanie Posner

It is quite lovely.

used this right away when it arrived. It is light, feels good on my face and I am going to use it until it is gone and then buy some more. It is quite lovely.

Rita Lumsden

A Solid Moisturizer

I like this moisturizer. A little goes a long way, and it doesn’t have a scent. Although it contains hyaluronic acid it’s still very mild.

Mary M

Moisturizer

I really like this moisturizer so far. It's very light and makes my skin feel so soft. Also, I noticed w other moisturizers that I've used that they tend to be very irritating if I get close to my eyes. With this moisturizer that hasn't happened! I would definitely recommend it!

Kimberly Cunningham

Face Moisturizer

I like this product. It hydrates well, is not overly greasy and does not clog my pores. A little goes a long way so one jar will last many months. I would recommend it and plan to purchase again in the future.

Judy

Nice product

This face cream feels very nice on my skin. So far, I love it!

Carol Conger

A little goes along way!

Smells awesome light but creamy on my skin . I will alternate using it between They're really dry seasons and humid summer seasons.

Starr Dobush

Great

I like it!

theresa fitzpatrick

Wonderful

Not greasy, and easy to apply makeup over. And I have skin that is very particular. Think you can come up with an eye cream now? Lol

Angela Pullings

Works great with acne prone skin

I have acne prone skin and this has worked great so far as a night moisturizer. No breakouts, not oily or greasy, but moisturizes well.

Elisabeth Gross

Nice!

I’m very pleased with ette's Face Moisturizer. It goes on smoothly and is quickly and completely absorbed. It doesn’t feel at all greasy and doesn’t clog my pores. I love that the container is glass and I can get every last bit of the lotion out of it. I will definitely order more!

Marcy McCandless

Great moisturizer

I really like this moisturizer. It's lightweight and a little goes a long way. It smells nice, and my skin looks great after I apply it. I have combination skin and am prone to blemishes, and so far this moisturizer has been great. Thanks, etee, for a quality moisturizer in plastic-free packaging!

Lauren

It's a cool drink for my face!

The moisturizer glides on, absorbs quickly, and has no smell that I can discern. My face loves it.

Cynthia Hull

A little goes a long way

In the winter months my face gets dried out, but a little dab of this face moisturizer goes a long way to smoothing the cracks and wrinkles on my cheeks and forehead. Great product!

James

Love it!

I have complicated skin - easily irritated, oily in parts but gets crazy dry in other parts. Its hard to find a moisturizer that doesn't clog my pores but actually amkes me skin feel hydrated and not burn when I put it on. This moisturizer does that! It is light, goes on easily, and makes my skin feel supple. Good job, etee!

Olivia

Simple, easy and no plastic

This is a very simple moisturizer with a minimum of chemicals (I can always trust etee to be careful about that. It smooths in quickly and easily, and no greasy like what I was using before.
