Natural & organic? Entirely natural with organic ingredients. Most brands would happily say 100%. Proverb means truth. All emulsions made in the UK have to have a preservative. We use the organic certification allowed preservative dehydroacetic acid. Although you are allowed to label it natural it isn’t true. There is 0.6% in the bottle as legally required.

Our dedication to natural & organic Greenwashing brands pretending to be natural, is rife and only getting worse. We will only ever tell you the truth about our ingredients, the sources and which elements are natural, organic or the legally required preservatives. We formulate with painstaking dedication to this mantra for your health but also as it ensures the elite grown version of each ingredient.

Made in England? Yes, formulated and made in England where our headquarters are. Ingredients are sourced sustainably from around the world. Lifefuelled humans using the products globally.

In vitro & in vivo lab proven actives? Yes, we have selected many active ingredients with strong in vitro and in vivo testing results for the individual ingredients. Combining this with researching the source, origins and ethics of each ingredient.

‘Clean’ brands tend to be younger and newer to market and thus don’t usually invest the large amount of funds needed to clinically trial products to prove results in an independent lab. Not us; we are firmly committed to do this as the clean, organic and natural sector has to prove it works. As we grow the brand, we will grow the investment into clinical testing as a priority but below are our test results so far!

Dermatological testing: All Proverb skincare has been successfully Dermatologically tested

Full formula clinical in vivo trials: In a controlled study Oil Balance Pro Moisturiser has been clinically proven to moisturise.* In a controlled study Oil Balance Pro Moisturiser outperformed the leading male skincare brand’s daily moisturiser.* Lab tests on individual ingredients: *Controlled tests independently carried out by Cutest Systems Ltd, Cardiff.

Lab tests on individual ingredients:

OIL BALANCE PRO MOISTURISER

In a clinical trial the combined ingredient of acai, andiroba and copaiba balsam has shown a 65% reduction in oil production after 6 weeks and a 72% reduction in the number of blackheads after 8 weeks.

SKIN DEFINITION FACIAL SCRUB

SUPERFOOD AVOCADO & COCONUT: Blended ground coconut shell to remove dead skin cells and invigorate your skin aiding skin cell regeneration. Alongside blitzed avocado stones, the powerhouse of this anti-oxidant rich ingredient and super use of something normally just thrown in the bin. Wake up your face.

INCA INCHI OIL with an OMEGA 3 content like no other and ARGAN OIL with its exceptional content of unsaturated fatty acids help restore the hydro-lipidic film of the skin, strengthening the barrier function of your fresh newly revealed skin cells.

Your skin should feel immediately invigorated and energised. It should look and feel smoother.

You should also be getting signs that your skin is more moisturised, it shouldn’t ever feel tight and should begin to look more even and balanced. Blemishes should look less inflamed.

We would expect within the first few weeks that your skin will look brighter, with a more even skin tone and less shine.

Remember as your skin cycle is approximately 28 days when you change to any new skincare you should commit to 4 weeks to ensure your skin likes it.
