Yes, the entire line is vegan and almost entirely plant based with the exception of peptides.
Yes, all Thyrst Beauty products are cruelty free.
The shelf life is about a year and a half to two years but we recommend using the products right way in order to get the most out of the products.
We recommend avoiding products with retinol or salicylic acid when pregnant or nursing. However, you should always check with your doctor to ensure any skincare is safe while pregnant or nursing. These are the products that currently contain retinol or salicylic acid; Serum 11 and Moisturizer 12. Bakuchiol (a similar, less irritating compound to retinol) is another frequently used ingredient. All of the products except for Exfoliant 07 contain Bakuchiol.
All of Thyrst Beauty Products are made in the US.
Sustainable packaging is just as important as the formulas themselves. This is why we have thoughtfully designed our packaging to be environmentally friendly and sustainable. Our outer packaging and marketing material is made out of FSC certified paper. Both our plastic tubes and glass containers are recyclable as well.
Most of our ingredients are natural (97-99% depending on the product) and the remaining ingredients are a powerful arsenal of clinically tested peptides which are still non-toxic and safe they just make the products more effective. All organic ingredients will have an asterisk next to it on the ingredients list. Organic does not have the same meaning that people typically associate with food and doesn't not make the products healthier or more effective.
We use only natural preservatives. Without them, products would not have any kind of shelf life.
No, in fact, our bodies are made up of chemicals; however, some chemicals can be harmful. We choose not to use toxic, harmful chemicals in our formulas as a promise and investment in the health and wellness of our customers.
