The Made Without List
At Balmere™, we purposefully select ingredients that have skin benefits. Additionally, we do not add over 1,400 chemicals banned or restricted in personal care products by the European Union.
We strive to source ingredients of the highest safety and quality standards. However, it is well recognized — and accepted by global regulatory authorities — that nominal levels of a chemical may inadvertently be introduced in a product due to the complexities of the supply chain and manufacturing process.
At Balmere, we work incredibly hard to minimize — but unfortunately, can’t 100% eliminate — the possibility that a product may contain trace levels of a chemical from our Made Without list.
Check out our list below to see what we avoid and why.
What We Avoid
Parabens can disrupt hormones in the body, which can affect fertility and reproductive organs, birth outcomes, and increase the risk of cancer. They can also cause skin irritation.

Not only does it not leave a chalky after-look, and is it in the coolest bottle that is super efficient and easy, but it also SUPER SAFE. So many other products have terrible ingredients, are bad for the environment, or I don't feel good using as someone who has endometriosis and super sensitive skin. So grateful for Balmere!
I've been on the hunt for the perfect mineral sunscreen for forever, and Balmere is it. It's so smooth, not at all heavy or greasy like some other formulas I've tried.
It disappears into my skin and it gives me a matte finish that's the perfect primer for my makeup. And no signs of any irritation or breakouts, which is always a concern I have. 10/10 recommend, this is so far the best mineral sunscreen I've used!
Because I’ve been in active chemo for 7 years now, I was hesitant to buy a cleanser since they usually dry my skin out - I am on a treatment that is particularly hard on my skin. I was really surprised that my skin didn’t feel tight and dried out after using the cleanser. I almost forgot to put in moisturizer, which is amazing because with any other cleanser my face feels like it’s going to crack within minutes of drying it off. So nice to be able to actually use something besides water! The Balmere cleanser almost felt as though it was moisturizing my skin.
I am a big fan - from the pump to the actual cleanser, it's become a staple in my skincare both day and night!
For context, I'm a physician and am so excited to see a skincare company founded by another physician - it really gives me confidence about the product and its ingredients.
My hyper-sensitive skin always felt stripped after cleaning, thereby requiring repeated layers of extra hydration from serums and moisturizers. I have found that after switching to this cleanser I can dispense with the majority of my products and still maintain clean pores. Wonderful!
