All about Indigo Wild!

Indigo Wild’s not-so-secret ingredients: goats milk, glycerin, soy wax, shea butter, meadowfoam seed oil and pure essential oils for whiff. This company runs from bad ingredients like artificial surfactants (synthetic foaming agents), petrochemicals, glycols and parabens. And they take a pass on animal testing – the only animals they test are boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands and wives. What we're saying is, there's a lot that goes on behind indigo wild’s shower curtain before any products go behind yours. At Indigo Wild, there's more than meets the whiff.

They make Indigo Wild's stuff rock, balancing the rhythm that forms the backbone: Goat's milk, soy wax, jojoba oil, shea butter, argan oil, dragon's blood. They add stuff like meadowfoam seed oil, rosehip oil, and botanical extracts for bass vibes you can feel. Then they bring out the 100% pure essential oils to lay down a melody that hits the high notes.

 

Dirty Words

There are a handful of ingredients Indigo Wild simply avoids when it comes to hand making their products. These words are not just dirty, they're downright disgusting. Indigo Wild doesn't and will never use the following ingredients:

Animal Tallow
Animal Tallow or Sodium Tallowate, comes from rendered animal fat. Many rendering companies get their animal lard from road kill.

Cocoamidopropyl Betaine
Cocamidopropyl Betaine is a surfactant, giving detergents their manufactured cleansing and lathering properties. It is a known irritant to skin, eyes, and lungs. Plus, it has been shown it can be carcinogenic.

Sulfates/Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
Sulfates/Sodium lauryl sulfate and its extended family are used in products as an inexpensive foaming agent. It's an eye and skin irritant, and products containing laureth chemicals have been found to contain levels of 1,4 dioxan, which the EPA has classified as a carcinogen.

Petroleum By-Products / Mineral Oil
Petroleum by-products and Mineral oil are by-products of the distillation of gasoline from oil. It coats skin like plastic, clogging pores and interfering with the skin's ability to eliminate toxins. It slows cell development and skin function. You'll find this inexpensive ingredient in a lot of baby products and lotions.

Phthalates
Phthalates are used in perfumes and beauty products to make fragrance last longer. It interferes with the endocrine system, which regulates your body's growth, metabolism, and sexual development and function.

Triclosan
Triclosan is an antibacterial, antifungal chemical used in many consumer products. Studies by the FDA show it may contribute to bacteria resistance to antibiotics and alters hormone regulations. It is registered as a pesticide with the EPA.

Parabens
Parabens are chemical preservatives found in many body care products and cosmetics. They are linked to breast cancer as they have been found in breast cancer tumors and they mimic estrogen, a hormone known to aid in the development of breast cancer. Paraben free is the way to go.

Artificial Colors
Artificial colors labeled as FD&C are believed to be cancer causing agents.

Propylene Glycol
Propylene glycol, a chemical derived from natural gas that acts as a penetration enhancer. It can alter the structure of skin by allowing chemicals to penetrate your skin and increase likelihood chemicals will enter the bloodstream.

Chemical Sunscreens
Chemical sunscreens absorb in the skin, thus also absorbing the harmful UV light and can cause skin damage, irritation, and increase risk of cancer.

DEA/TEA
DEA/TEA a chemical wetting agent and emulsifier for shampoos, lotions, and creams. They can react with ingredients in cosmetic formulas to form NDEA, a potent carcinogen. NDEA is readily absorbed through the skin and has been linked with stomach, esophagus, liver, and bladder cancers.

PEGS or PPGS
PEGs or PPGs are synthetic ingredients processed with ethylene oxide which is associated with reproductive effects, central nervous system depression and is an EPA classified carcinogen.

Tetrasodium EDTA
Tetrasodium EDTA a preservative made with carcinogens, formaldehyde, and sodium cyanide. It's a penetration enhancer so it breaks down the skin's protective barrier absorbing in the blood stream.

Diazolidinyl Urea
Diazolidinyl Urea is a preservative that acts as a formaldehyde releaser in body care products. Formaldehyde is classified as a human carcinogen by the EPA.

 

Staff gives Zum FIVE stars!!

From the hand lotion sitting on my night stand that I use before bed, the body wash in my shower and the Soy candles scattered around my house, I am immediately uplifted in that essential oil daze. The scents that make up all of the Zum products are powerful but after rubbing the lotion on my hands the scent mixes with my skin and just leaves a light aromatic smell that lingers while I am falling asleep! If you want your shower to wake you up and energize you then absolutely try the grapefruit Zum wash, its invigorating and immediately wakes up the senses and does not leave that streaky feeling on your body! If you are a candle freak like me then you know the fun of Soy candles, i love burning them for a little bit so the whole house is filled with the scent and then blowing out the wick and pouring some of the wax on my arms and legs. Don' worry soy wax goes on warm not hot but do proceed with caution! The soy wax works as a lotion and smells amazing!! its also a really nice way to get your partner in the mood with a warm massage!
