Simple Smart Ingredients
Our ingredients are few, meaning we don't complicate or compromise your health with fillers or preservatives.  In fact, only 1% of the formulation (in our lotions and creams) contain preservatives. We specifically chose a food grade preservative for your health and safety.  Our soaps do not contain any preservatives at all.

We have carefully selected what we put in our products for the purpose of benefiting the health of the skin. We don’t use the words “natural”  or "organic" loosely.

No fillers and no lies in our products.  As a family-owned and operated company with high standards for your and your family. Our skin care products are expertly crafted from the highest quality natural ingredients. We are dedicated to creating safe, gentle and effective products that are truly beneficial to your skin.

 Here you'll find what is in our products and just as importantly, what is not in our products.

Below are the three main ingredients we use at Tierra Mia Organics. CLICK on the words in the boxes below to learn more about why we use these ingredients and where we source them.

GOAT MILK

HONEY

OILS

 

Gluten Free

All Tierra Mia Organics products are 100% gluten free.

It may come as a surprise, but gluten can be found in many beauty products, such as foundation, lipstick, lip gloss, eye makeup, lotion and shampoo. It is used as a binder. Many big name brand products use it in their creams and lotions, which contain gluten-derived oils. Often vitamin E, found in beauty products, may be derived from wheat (which means it contains gluten).



 

No Animal Testing

Many cosmetics, beauty and skin care products contain chemicals that can have dangerous side effects. U.S. law has required animal safety testing of drugs and cosmetics since 1938 when Congress passed the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act in response to public outcry after several tragic incidents involving untested products.

At Tierra Mia Organics we have no need for animal testing because our products do not use any harsh chemicals. We use only natural oils, raw honey, natural beeswax, raw milk and food grade preservatives. In fact, most of our ingredients are edible.

No Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)

On average women add over 200 chemicals to their skin daily, with more than 60% of these being absorbed directly into the bloodstream. It is little wonder, more and more people are searching for a natural solution. SLS is a detergent and surfactant, which means it breaks surface tension which separates molecules and allows better interaction between the product and surface it cleans (your hair for example). It creates lather in products such as shampoo and toothpaste. It is inexpensive and is why sodium lauryl sulfate is found in a many industrial cleaning agents such as engine degreaser and industrial strength detergents. It is also widely used as a skin irritant when testing products used to heal skin irritations. There are conflicting reports published over the years about the use of sodium lauryl sulfate. Most concerning are reports of links between cancer and SLS.

None of Tierra Mia Organics products contain sodium lauryl sulfate.
 

No Parabens

Parabens are used to prevent the growth of microbes in cosmetics products and can be absorbed through skin, blood and the digestive system. Parabens have been found in biopsies from breast tumors at concentrations similar to those found in consumer products. Parabens may be found in a wide variety of products including shampoos, lotions, deodorants, scrubs and eye makeup, and are found in nearly all urine samples from U.S. adults regardless of ethnic, socioeconomic or geographic backgrounds. Adolescents and adult females had higher levels of methylparaben and propylparaben in their urine than did males of similar ages. 

At Tierra Mia Organics none of our products contain parabens. In our products we use raw honey, known to be a natural antimicrobial and food grade preservatives.

No Artificial Colors

“It takes up to 25 synthetic chemicals to create 1 artificial dye. If a product is purple, it could potentially have 50 or more chemicals just in the color.”   -- Leila McGehee Tucker, ND,

These chemicals make their way through the skin or down the digestive tract into the bloodstream. The body can filter out some of these residual chemicals, but some definitely remain. Some of these chemicals are known to cause skin to age prematurely, break out or become hyper sensitive; and perhaps worse is what isn't known about the long term effects of the majority of the chemicals used in skin care products.

There are no artificial colors in any Tierra Mia Organics products.


 

No Artificial Fragrances

95% of the chemicals in most commercial fragrances are synthetic compounds derived from petroleum and natural gas, known as petrochemicals. On average, 80% of fragrance formulations are comprised of these chemicals and in some cases, 100% of a formula can be synthetic.

Tierra Mia Organics uses natural, organic essential oils to give fragrance to our products.

No Harsh Chemical Preservatives

Unfortunately, when it comes to skin care products, “organic" doesn’t always mean chemical-free. Preserving products is a challenge for many manufacturers. Most retailers require large orders, which are often left sitting on shelves for as many as 5 years.

Many "natural" and "organic" lines use chemicals, such as formaldehyde (used to embalm bodies), alcohol (strips away skin’s natural oils in high proportions), benzoic acid (thought to exacerbate eczema), benzyl alcohol (linked to contact dermatitis), phenoxyethanol (petroleum based), and sodium benzoate (linked to DNA damage In high doses)

At Tierra Mia Organics, we do not use any of the aforementioned chemicals. It is more difficult, costly and means that our products have a shorter shelf life, but it is worth it to keep our products safer and gentler for use.
