A New Standard in clean beauty.
The Sunday Standard is a fully woman-owned and operated skin + beauty boutique with a mission of connecting our community with brands that align with their values and products that help them feel more confident in their own skin. The Sunday Standard is a space to explore and discover the best in clean beauty, haircare, fragrance, and wellness.
The Sunday Standard was founded in 2018 with the launch of our eponymous skincare line, which is now produced in-house in the small cosmetics studio in the back of our Armitage Avenue shop. The Sunday Standard’s products are formulated to heal and nourish breakout-prone skin by promoting barrier repair and cellular renewal, eliminating blemish-causing impurities, and restoring balance to the skin’s natural oil production. Inflammation is soothed, environmental damage is reversed, and tired, problematic skin is brought back to life. Our in-house skincare products are made in small batches weekly to ensure ingredient integrity and to reduce waste caused by over-production.
All of our products and those that we choose to carry in our shop are formulated without the use of parabens, phthalates, endocrine disruptors, carcinogenic ingredients, or petroleum-based ingredients. We have researched our ingredient choices extensively, and have limited our "allowed ingredients" list to only those which are known to be “low hazard” and are unlikely to become bio-accumulative or contain developmental, reproductive, or immune system toxins. We are committed to continually researching and re-verifying the safety of our ingredients as new data emerges.
We follow the IFRA guidelines for safe use of fragrance and use only plant-derived, natural oils to scent our products – never synthetics. We source pure, high-quality essential oils to ensure that your skin receives all of the benefits of the plants from which they are distilled.
We use only ECOCERT certified preservatives, and are committed to using them at their lowest effective dosages. Our preservatives are laboratory made using plant-derived technology to ensure the omission of sensitizers such as benzyl alcohol and benzyl benzoate.
We always provide full, up-to-date ingredients lists in the internationally recognized INCI standard format. We are committed to product transparency and include information on each ingredient used in all of our formulas – including specific fragrance ingredients and their potential (naturally occurring) sensitizers.
We choose organic, non-GMO, and wild-harvested ingredients whenever possible. We package our products in glass as it’s better for you and better for our environment. We strive to recycle or reuse as much of our packaging material as possible, and to minimize single use plastics. We never test our products on animals, and we vet our supply chain to ensure that our raw materials are also never tested on animals. We know you have high standards, so we do too.
