Chemical compounds applied to the skin in the form of lotion, soap or other skin care products can be absorbed through the skin and affect the body. Perfumes and perfume oils can also be absorbed by breathing in the aromatic chemicals they contain. Gluten, allergens or chemicals in items used on the hands, lips or face may cause problems for sensitive individuals when inadvertently transferred to the mouth and ingested.
For these reasons, the Dakota Free team believes that anything used on the skin needs to be as natural, pure and beneficial as possible. The Dakota Free product line has been formulated with this principle in mind.
We offer full disclosure of every ingredient, additive and preservative used in the products because we believe that you have the right to know what you are using on your skin. This policy gives you the opportunity to make the best choice for yourself, avoid allergens and protect your heath.
Dakota Free Products are formulated using skin friendly ingredients that work together to provide an effective alternative to commercial products with a synthetic chemical base. We’ve gone beyond full disclosure of all ingredients by carefully designed production methods that prevents cross-contamination between the products so that you can use Dakota Free with confidence.
This policy of full disclosure and isolation of production is unusual in the industry. We are a company that is committed to eliminating irritating chemicals and potential allergens from our products.
When you purchase commercial skincare, spa, bath or baby products there may be hidden or unintentional ingredients in the products. These un-declared ingredients can be troublesome for your skin and even dangerous for those with severe allergies, Celiac disease, asthma or chemical sensitivities.
We work hard to preserve the integrity of our product line, and as a result,
Dakota Free is different than other skin care lines available.
In addition to being free of undesirable ingredients, the products comply with Feingold Standards, are never tested on animals, biodegradable, vegetarian and made in the USA.
This impressive attribute list, along with the high quality and effectiveness define the “Dakota Free difference” - we expect that your skin will notice that difference.

The following are some examples of how unintended and undeclared ingredients end up in skin care or bath products:
Ingredients from one product can contaminate another product during production; a potential problem if several products are made using the same equipment or in close proximity to one another.
Solvents, grain alcohol or propylene glycol are often used in the processing of herbal extracts and may remain, unlisted, in the final product.
Herbs, herbal extracts and some hydrosols also require preservation and these preservatives may not be listed separately on a products ingredient listing.
Combinations of preservatives, emulsifiers, or other chemicals are sometimes listed under a single, unfamiliar Brand name instead of their individual chemical names.
Antioxidants are sometimes added to plant oils by the manufacture; these antioxidants extend shelf life and may not be listed on the label. Some of the more common antioxidants used in this way are vitamin E, wheat germ oil, rosemary oleoresin and Dodecyl Gallate.
Occurrences such as these are not of interest to everyone, but are vitally important to those with health problems triggered or aggravated by specific chemicals or plants. In addition to a complete ingredient listing, you will find an attribute checklist on each Dakota Free product page to help you chose the right item for your specific need.
