Did you know that when you choose Facial Lounge for your skincare needs you are supporting a female-owned business that is committed to solely using vegan, non-toxic, cruelty-free treatments and products that still deliver maximum results?
Amber Johnson, owner and founder of Facial Lounge, has harbored a passion for skincare and a natural approach to healing nearly her entire life. 30 years ago, Amber entered the skincare industry, studying under the renowned Dr. Fulton, developer of the topical uses of Benzoyl Peroxide and Retin-A.
She quickly discovered that most skincare products utilize inhumane practices including animal-testing and/or contain toxic ingredients linked to many different diseases. Then and there, Amber made it her life’s mission to redefine the skincare industry. She has harnessed the power of science and Mother Nature to create products that are highly effective and made with ingredients found in nature.
This is why every Facial Lounge product is made from top-shelf, effective ingredients derived from fruits and plants that provide you with outstanding results. Our skincare is not only better for your skin and your health, but also for the environment. We follow a strict set of guidelines for our formulas and do not formulate with unwanted, or skin-sensitizing ingredients.
This is a commitment we are proud of!
All Facial Lounge products undergo a rigorous series of tests to ensure everything under our label is safe, stable, and effective. Our high-performance ingredients utilize clinical testing on humans to determine effectiveness. Some companies claim to offer a natural product, but the term is unregulated, which means so long as a product contains a single natural ingredient, it can be labeled “natural” even if it contains other harmful or unnatural ingredients. There are many studies on how effective plant-based ingredients can be when used properly and Facial Lounge proudly uses all natural ingredients in their skincare line.
It is important to note that just because something is “vegan” that does not necessarily mean it is “cruelty-free”. Facial Lounge commits that all their products are both vegan and cruelty-free. It is a common but relatively unknown practice for companies to include animal-based ingredients in their products, meaning the ingredient was extracted from an animal part, including tissue or joints. Furthermore, a product can be free of animal byproducts but can still be tested on animals. Animal testing is a torturous, unethical practice that does not need to exist. The best way to know if something is both vegan and cruelty-free is to check the label and look for “cruelty-free” or look for the the Leaping Bunny Logo.
