Who are we?
Gaia's Lab is founded by skincare enthusiasts! We work with labs and formulation companies on ingredient research. Gaia's Lab was founded in 2017.
Why are we doing this?
Gaia's Lab intends to tap into the cutting edge science of plant and tree-based functional nutrients and find ways to use them in skincare using science.
The ingredients of skincare products have remained unchanged for several decades now and mainstream products still contain a mixture of harmful chemicals and preservatives. In short, the ingredient listing is very repetitive and not good for you!
However in recent years skincare science has grown by leaps and bounds. Scientists have done extensive research into active ingredients found in nature, driving the question, how do natural elements like trees and other plants protect themselves against the adverse effects of weather, pollution, and other harmful conditions? And how can that be brought into modern skincare?
Thus, we base our cutting edge formulations on these very botanical and natural extracts to amplify skincare routines!
What do we do?
Our products are small batch! We put a lot of thought into which botanicals would best suit certain skin conditions. We follow our vendor's guidelines for ingredient concentration in order to provide maximum efficacy that is in line with the testing conducted by the vendor's lab. We insist on SDS, CoA, in-vivo/in-vitro test results, and clinical studies for all our ingredients.
Our goal is to use natural and minimum ingredients without any filler ingredients. Ingredients are not included for label appeal or marketing promotion purposes. We insist on including the science for all our ingredients on our product pages.
