What we do
Kacadas is a brick and mortar and online Beauty Boutique.
We offer mindful beauty products that are performance driven,
yet healthy and kind to both people and the earth. Our hair care,
skincare, bath and body, makeup, home and wellness
brands have been carefully curated to provide a multi-sensory
experience that soothes while re-energizing, with no lingering toxic effects.
We're on a mission
We're driven by a desire to bring awareness to the value in discarding toxic
beauty products while honoring the earth and its Creator by utilizing the plants,
flowers, minerals and other raw materials available to preserve and enhance
natural beauty. Simply put, we encourage people to "stop dying to be beautiful"
We realize that we're responsible for each other
Kacadas is devoted to making sure that as our business grows we remain faithful to our responsibility to “pay it forward”. In addition to volunteering and giving to several organizations in our local community, we have a heart for people. People everywhere deserve to have clean drinking water. To support this belief we gladly give back 1% of our gross revenue to Charity Water, a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. (www.charitywater.org) Locally, we give another 1% of our gross revenue to Shay Sharpe's Pink Wishes, a non-profit organization
We will not compromise
Kacadas holds brands to the highest caliber to ensure that every discovery brought to our store meets our standards.
The skin is the largest and most important organs on our body. Up to 60% of what we put on our skin gets absorbed into our bodies (picture a nicotine patch). That means that the products we put on our bodies can affects our health and overall well-being. There are plants, natural chemicals and minerals that help decrease inflammation, moisturize our skin or heal chronic illnesses like eczema. However, there are other chemicals with studied and documented links to endocrine disruption, reproductive toxicity, developmental toxicity, immunotoxicity, organ toxicity, neurotoxicity, cancer and many other health concerns. It only makes sense to be extremely mindful of what we are putting on our skin.
Thankfully, there are many consciously crafted personal care products that avoid offending ingredients, we have choices.
No matter how in-demand or popular a product, we do not stock goods in our store that have ingredients that have been documented as causing human health harm on the Made Safe Hazard List of Chemicals, Materials & Ingredients. Each item on this list is backed by science from government agencies, scientific organizations, or research specialists from around the world.
The health of our customers, our family and friends and we ourselves - is not worth the risk. We also cross-reference ingredients against other research sites, reports and studies, some of which are listed below.
