Credo Beauty's Restricted Substance List includes over 3000 chemical compounds and types/groups of chemicals (e.g. ethoxylated/alkoxylated ingredients). The list is intended to apply to chemicals that are used as intentional ingredients as well as those that may be incidental or contaminants at trace levels. Most are “prohibited at any level”, though some are “restricted” (i.e. a non-animal source is acceptable but animal-derived is not; phenoxyethanol is acceptable under 1% of formula).
A shorter, public version of the RSL, known as "The Dirty List" is available at credobeauty.com. ChemForward has worked with Credo to make this tool as user friendly and accurate as possible, but if after using ChemForward you have questions about if a chemical is allowed, restricted or prohibited, please contact Credo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
