How long has your company been around and is it privately owned?
- Cleure toothpaste, our first product, was developed in 1994. The products were only sold in health food stores and dental offices. The company is not publicly traded but privately owned.
I notice some of your products have a scent or "fragrance". Are these synthetic fragrances?
Do you use nanotechnology in manufacturing Cleure products? What about titanium dioxide or zinc oxide?
- A very few of our products may contain a scent, but not a fragrance. Fragrance that may cause allergies, usually contain essential oils, plant extracts and other ingredients that may cause side effects. Cleure makes every attempt to only use safe ingredients free of any salicyaltes or other potentially allergic producing ingredients.
Why do you use titanium dioxide and zinc oxide in your sunscreen instead of the chemical sunscreen?
- No. Cleure does not use nano-particles in our products, including titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.
- The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has rated titanium dioxide and zinc oxide as the safest broad spectrum sunscreens. They are naturally mined and have been used for many years in food, medical, dental, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
Why do Cleure products not contain any plant or "natural "ingredient?
- Plant ingredients are often sprayed with pesticides and have side effects. Medline Plus and University of Maryland Alternative Medicine websites include an extensive list of many popular herbs and their side effects.
Most plants also contain preservatives that are not always listed on the label.
For a product to truly be "natural", it would either have to be refrigerated or it would have a very limited shelf life of only a few days. Cleure focuses on formulating safe ingredients that are non-irritating.
