Your Question:

“What do you really mean when you say your products are ‘clean’?


The Answer:

From Michelle Jacobs, Womaness co-founder, COO, and product formulator: 

When it comes to companies claiming to be 'clean,' it's important to ask some questions because there isn't a specific authority (like the FDA) regulating that term.

At Womaness, we're all about providing solutions that actually work and are backed by science. We want to help you naturally tackle your symptoms. And here's the thing: what we leave out of our products is just as crucial as what we put in.


“We consider Womaness products clean because they’re free of estrogen, phytoestrogen, or added hormones."


So, here's what you can expect from Womaness formulations:

We use plant-based ingredients, and while many of them are organic, some are not. The reason is simple: we include ingredients that have been proven to be clinically effective. Unfortunately, not all of these ingredients are currently available in organic form. But if an organic option becomes available without compromising effectiveness, we'll update the formula right away.

We consider Womaness products clean because they’re free of estrogen, phytoestrogen, or added hormones. Plus, they're free from parabens, phthalates, sulfates, artificial colors, formaldehyde, PEGs, mineral oils, soy, gluten, and NPE (Nonylphenol Ethoxylate). They’re also vegan and certified by Leaping Bunny as cruelty-free

And of course, our formulations have been dermatologist and allergy tested, so you can trust that they're safe and gentle on your skin.”
