product was created by popular demand. We had a group of health
conscious customers who loved using waterless cleansers, but who wanted
to replace their toxic mainstream waterless cleansing product, which was
full of SLS's, Butylene Glycol, EDTA and Parabens etc, with a natural
alternative. Well here is DeVita's answer to that request- Chamomile
Cleansing Creme with Calendula! Our soothing, extra gentle fragrance
free cleansing crème clears away daily impurities and make-up with ease.
DeVita’s proprietary blend of pure plant extracts — including Certified
Organic Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Calendula — helps maintain the skins
natural pH moisture balance for ideal support and natural glow. Leaves
skin feeling dewy-soft, supple and comfortably clean - without any
greasy or oily residue left behind. And no waterworks are required! -

removes daily grime and residue without using water or suds. Removes
most make-up - may require two applications to remove heavier eye
Best suited for normal to dry or sensitive skin. Skin remains hydrated,
soft and dewy, without any greasy or oily residue left behind.
Do Devita products contains parabens? NO never have, never will. We were one of the first companies to put out
a paraben free product line. We were pioneers of the paraben-free
concept and, in the beginning, it caused the company to grow slowly as
various distribution channels were reluctant to take the risk of not
having traditional preservative poisons in the products. We started to
realize as more information became available, that we had created a
process that would cause others to change their ways as well. We see
many companies now changing their formulas to exclude parabens, but we
have always known that parabens were not our friends! Parabens are not
the only things we do not choose to include. We are always free from
synthetic fragrances, dyes, petrochemicals, etc.
What is the difference between vegan and vegetarian? Vegetarian is a blanket term used to describe a person who does not
consume animal flesh foods – meat, poultry, fish, or seafood. It
generally implies someone who has less dietary restrictions than a
vegan. Vegetarians can consume eggs, dairy products and honey/beeswax
from the bees (insects) etc… Vegan is the strictest extreme
sub-category of vegetarians. Vegans do not consume any animal products
or by-products. Some go as far as not even consuming honey/beeswax from
bees (insects) or yeast, while some are classified as Honey-Vegans for
whom the gift of honey/beeswax is humbly accepted and appreciated for
its amazing health giving and performance properties. Still others do
not wear any clothing, or use furniture etc made from animal products.
It is a multi-sided issue to be sure, with many different passionately
held opinions. Honey-Vegan vs Non-Honey Vegan etc is an old debate, and
one that will likely continue forever with both sides claiming they are
“right”, when really it is simply a right to choose. The DeVita Skin
Care line is 100% “vegan extreme” and does not contain any animal or bee
insect by-products. Our absolute minerals color cosmetics line is
nearly 100% “vegan extreme”; except for two products – absolute LIPS and
absolute LENGTHS – which both contain small amounts of necessary
natural beeswax (preferable to the use of chemicals in synthetic
beeswax). We have chosen to label those two products as vegetarian;
however, DeVita still remains 100% animal free in both our lines.
Is Devita Gluten Free? DeVita is considered a Gluten Sensitive Safe product line, as we use
only the pure, non-synthetically extracted Vitamin E, Wheat amino acids
etc. What has to be understood is that this chemistry is very precise.
The gluten is isolated first and only the pure Vitamin E is extracted.
The vitamin and the gluten come from two different parts of the whole.
We never use whole Wheat Germ Oil in any of our formulas; we use only
the pure, non-synthetically extracted Vitamin E and everything we work
with is at the amino acid level. Because of this we are considered a
Gluten Sensitive Safe line. Of course, as with any new product,
customers should always do a patch test first to see if there is a
compatibility issue. We never expect anyone to have a problem, but
everyone’s skin is special, and although DeVita is designed to cater to
those with skin sensitivity issues, it is always best to be safe as your
skin is just like your finger prints, particular only to you.
