Allergen Statement - In the Potter's Hand, Inc.

Home | Product Line Overview | Professional Referral Program

 

In the Potter’s Hand Inc (IPH) takes seriously the responsibility to provide our customers with complete and accurate allergen information on the products we manufacture.  

 

We employ meticulous care with our production methods and offer full disclosure of all our ingredients; this is a rare occurrence in the skin care industry,  where proprietary formulas and hidden ingredients are common.  Some companies are unaware of what hidden ingredients and allergens are present in their product formulas and so cannot offer this information to consumers, some companies are unwilling to fully inform customers due to use of undesirable ingredients.

 

At IPH, the products are made in individual batches, using separate equipment and in separate production areas to maintain tight control over the quality and the allergen status of each formulation. 

 

This method, that we have developed and dubbed “isolation of production”, simply means that we make products in separate areas for the purpose of preventing cross contamination. The products made in various production areas remain constant and are divided by the type of ingredients used.

 

IPH is unaware of any other skincare company providing this level of attention to allergen status or transparency in production methods and ingredient listing.
