PEGs are a mixture of compounds of polymers that have been bonded together. PEG is short for Polyethylene glycol. PEGs are often followed by a number. for example, PEG-6, PEG-8, PEG-100 and so on. The higher the number the lower the molecular weight - the quicker and easier the skin drinks it up. In cosmetics PEGs function as emollients, emulsifiers and as vehicles to to deliver other ingredients through the skin.
PEGs can remove your skins natural oils/barriers, therefore allowing external factors to easily penetrate your system. READ MORE

Vegan / animal-derived products
The majority of Sóley Organics products are vegan, meaning they are without animal-derived products or animal by-products (including fish or insect-derived). The only animal-derived product we use is certified organic beeswax, as it is a safe, effective skin protecting ingredient. Beeswax is only an ingredient in the following products: Græðir, KISStu mig and Glóey, as well as our candles.
As a preservative we use a complex mixture of plant-based essential
oils, vitamin-E oil, vitamin-C and in some of our creams we use a food
preservative called potassium sorbate.
