Forbidden Beauty Ltd
Several years ago we got very excited at witnessing, first hand, the development of the hemp products industry in USA. Quality cosmetic products were being developed and eagerly purchased by beauty-savvy American consumers. Various articles can be found attesting to the amazing properties this incredible plant possesses. So amazing that it is now permanently transforming the cosmetics marketplace.
New Zealand, with such quality conditions for growing superior hemp oils, should be a main global player for luxury beauty products and finally we are.
All our products contain Cosmetics hemp NZ -grown hemp oil, and various other enriching ingredients, that have been carefully selected and professionally formulated. We are excited about what we have finally produced and would love you to try for yourself.
1 – Parabens
Parabens can vary and they’re inexpensive and quite common preservatives in personal care and skincare products. They prolong the shelf life of the items and prevent harmful bacteria growth. But parabens have been linked to causing hormone imbalance, reproductive and fertility issues. Although there isn’t clear evidence that they directly result in tumours, the fact that parabens have been found in breast tumours is quite worrying.

2 – Phenoxyethanol
This is another preservative used widely in the beauty industry. Possible health concerns connected to the use of phenoxyethanol include allergy reactions, skin irritations, eczema, contact dermatitis and hives. Data also shows damage to the brain and central nervous system of exposed nursing mothers and infants.

3- Mineral Oil
Mineral oil is a rich emollient, often used by people with very dry, flaky skin. In fact, it can cause even more dryness. Mineral oil doesn’t actually hydrate the skin, it simply creates a barrier between the skin and the surrounding environment, in order to retain moisture. It creates an illusion that the skin is soft and nourished even though it can be left even drier. This can make people reapply their lip balms too often with no long-lasting results. In addition to that, mineral oil can clog pores and cause acne and breakouts, as it stays on the surface without being absorbed.
