At MyChelle our primary purpose is to offer clean, conscious, and comprehensive skin care. Although the federal government does not require manufacturers to fully disclose what chemicals are used to make personal care products, we are committed to being a part of the critical change towards 100% transparency in ingredients used.

From our beginning over 17 years ago, we have never used any of the toxic preservatives, petroleum derivatives, or artificial and unnatural by-products that are found in most skin care. We are obsessed with using ingredients that are just as effective as they are safe and natural and have created this glossary to help our consumers understand why we use each one.
