Clean skincare really is the secret to glowing skin, according to the experts.
Six Gldn tells us why it’s time to get on board with the ultimate clean skincare products that every skin type will love.
If you’re looking for a radiant complexion – and products that are seriously better for the health of the planet – clean skincare is the answer. US cosmetic safety laws haven’t been updated since 1938, and are far less strict than in many other countries. According to Dr. Kathryn Rexrode, chief of Women's Health at Harvard, cosmetic products simply aren’t tested for long-term safety. From irritating sulfates to phthalates linked to cancer, beauty products in the US are still packed with ingredients that shouldn’t be anywhere near your skin. Six Gldn is all the ingredients you want, and none of the ones you don’t. It’s high-performing clean skincare you can feel really good about.
What’s Six Gldn clean beauty?
There’s no universal ‘clean’ standard in the beauty industry, so we made our own. We don’t want anyone to have to think twice about safety or sustainability before they buy. So, banned: all animal by-products and over 2,000 problem ingredients that could harm your health or damage the environment. We work to and exceed the EU’s ultra-stringent standards. That means no known carcinogens, neurotoxins, hormone disruptors, irritants, or things like cyclic silicones and microplastics that pollute the water table. Our products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free, and safe to use during pregnancy and nursing.
Clean isn’t just about ingredients. Our packaging is environmentally friendly too – minimal, recyclable, refillable and sustainable. We’re working hard to make it even better, and by 2023 all our packaging will switch to plastic-free.
Six Gldn Clean Formulas
What makes our products so great? Stellar clean ingredients and rare botanical formulas perfected and passed down over 400 years. We’ve blended centuries-old knowledge of Korean advanced herbal medicine with the newest skincare chemistry. The result? Multi-tasking clean products that restore skin to the healthiest and most radiant it can be, every day.
With ingredients like bakuchiol, hyaluronic acid, exclusive botanical complexes, and heavy-duty antioxidant protection, Six Gldn gently nourishes, calms and strengthens skin as it gets to work visibly brightening, firming and combatting lines and wrinkles. Read on to discover more about our products.
Botanical Cleansing Gel
Brimming with hydrators and purifying botanical extracts, this ultra-gentle cleanser rinses away pore-clogging dirt and makeup without stripping. It delivers fresh, bright, velvety-soft skin and is so good, our customers say it makes cleansing spa-like.
Tip: Massage over face and neck gently for 60 seconds before rinsing to perk up tired skin and sluggish circulation.
Don’t use toner? You’re missing out. Thanks to natural ingredients like burdock, angelica, and magnolia berry, this powerful botanical concentrate is the key to softer, clearer, glowing skin. It unclogs, calms, balances oiliness, tightens the look of pores and boosts hydration. It’s the perfect prep so your next step can work as effectively as possible.
Tip: Cleansed thoroughly before bed? Use Botanical Toner instead of cleanser in the AM for a fast 60-second refresh.
Daily Vitamin C Radiance Serum
This superhero triple-action blend undoes dullness and discoloration, and targets lines and wrinkles to bring back brightness and youthful bounce to tired skin. Ingredients like THC ascorbate, bakuchiol, hyaluronic acid and Glow ReActivating Complex work in harmony to reveal skin that looks brighter, smoother and firmer.
Tip: Vitamin C’s antioxidant greatness works best if you finish your routine with SPF every day, rain or shine.
Designed to re-energize skin as it moisturizes, this weightless lotion packs a powerful hydrating punch. With the goodness of antioxidants, hemp seed oil, licorice, hyaluronic acid, and plant stem cells it replenishes the barrier as it visibly plumps, firms and reduces the look of lines and wrinkles. Leaves skin looking soft, dewy and bright.
Tip: Even if you have oily skin, don’t skip moisturizer. Use AM and PM to seal in essential moisture and keep irritating environmental stressors out.
Nourishing Face Oil
Our omega-rich blend absorbs quickly to relieve dryness and renew radiance. Warm a couple of drops in your palms and press onto skin to restore a luminous glow, as Glow ReActivating Complex helps visibly firm, brighten and reduce the look of lines and wrinkles over time.
Tip: Professional makeup artists love to prep skin with Nourishing Face Oil. It melts in fast to leave the perfect dewy base.
