We make products for your body that feel as good to use psychologically as they do physically. That’s because we create and mix them ourselves without harmful chemicals to work with your body, not against it.
We make every product by hand from mixing to sealing to labeling.
We cook up everything in a kitchen, not in a factory.
It all happens downtown, New York City.
We research every ingredient and container for safety, sustainability and ethical practices.
We will not select any ingredient that is harmful or lacks sufficient proof that it is safe to use over the long term.
Our ingredients are not tested on animals and do not contain animal by-products.
We do not use fillers, stabilizers, emulsifiers, boosters or binders.
The LASTICS BODY part of LASTICS was born by the BODY Team in two New York City kitchens in 2015.
The fragrances we use fall into one of three categories: essential oils, naturally derived frangrance oils or synthetics. The naturally derived fragrance oils are made entirely from natural resins and natural aromatic ingredients that include natural isolates. According to the Natural Perfumer's Guild, "A natural isolate is a molecule removed/isolated from a natural fragrance material. In the deodorants we only use essential oils or naturally derived plant-based oils. In the shaving soaps there are synthetic fragrances. All of them are phthalate free, soy free, GMO free and vegan.
The palm oil in our products is produced by a member of RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) to ensure the ingredient is sourced ethically, responsibly and sustainably. Learn more at rspo.org
Our containers are recyclable and made from BPA/BPS free plastic, which is considered among the safest. But even then they are suspected of leaching with reuse or over a long period of time. For this reason, we fill at the last possible minute, run with small batches that are freshly made or stored in glass until it's time to fill, and we recommend that you refrain from reusing the bottle.
Vitamin E oil is not synthetic, or made with soy or genetically modified.
