Quality Ingredients

We strive to select the most safe and beneficial herbs, oils, and ingredients. Plants that are grown without herbicides and pesticides, are much safer for your skin and body. Synthetic ingredients found in many products may be fast acting, but they can also cause harm that cannot be seen. Chemical ingredients may provide instant gratification and visible results, but most of these only help you aesthetically and may damage and weaken your skin. Using products that contain natural, organic ingredients, ensure that you get real nutritional benefits from those ingredients. The results may be slower, but natural, organic skin care products are more gentle on your skin and won’t harm you in the long run.


We consciously choose organic and sustainably produced products whenever possible. Organic ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and other additives or chemicals. Skin care products made with organic ingredients are less likely to cause allergic reactions, inflammations or irritations. Plants grown organically are found to contain a higher level of antioxidant vitamins than non-organic plants. 


Certain ingredients we use are not organic for various reasons. Ingredients such as clay, cannot be organic or beeswax is difficult to be certified organic, and isn’t as important as how it is produced. We always ensure all of our ingredients are high quality, come from sustainable sources, and have not been tested on animals. We source all our ingredients from companies we trust. The source of the ingredients and how they are produced, must be transparent to us before we make a purchase. 


Because of the nature of the ingredients we use, the shelf life may not be as long as products made with harsh chemicals and preservatives. We use natural preservatives when necessary in products that will spoil or contaminate quickly. An effective preservative system is absolutely necessary in these formulas for safety. We never use preservatives that contain phthalates or parabens. All of our preserving methods are as safe as possible, but also effective so the integrity of the product is not compromised. The preservatives we use are tested for efficacy and meet the requirements for level one on the EWG safety scale.


Our goal is to promote the health and vibrancy of you and our planet. Our choices affect our own health, as well as every person’s health on the Earth. When we make informed decisions about the products we use, we’re making a statement that we care about our world as a whole, all people, animals, and the environment over profit.

Safe and Toxin Free

There’s a lot of hype out there about marketing terms like “clean”, “natural”, “Toxin Free”, just to name a few. Many companies throw them out there to gain a certain audience, but these terms are in fact unregulated and can be totally meaningless and misleading. On the flipside, they are terms that can be meaningful if a company is honest and can explain how these terms apply to their products and integrity as a company.

What do we mean by Clean, Natural, Safe, and Toxin Free?


We believe that good, effective products don’t need a bunch of synthetic chemicals or a long ingredient list. We believe being clean means the ingredients are safe to use on your body because they are naturally derived and used properly. It is important that the impact is not harmful to the planet or the people that work hard to produce all of the components of our products. We strive to continue to improve and research everything that we do to ensure this.


We strive to keep all of our ingredients as natural and unprocessed as possible. We use organic ingredients whenever possible, such as herbs, oils, and butters. Certain ingredients either can’t be (clay for instance), or isn’t as important as how it’s produced (Beeswax). We never use synthetic fragrances, which often contain petrochemicals that are capable of causing cancer, birth defects, nervous system disorders, and allergies. We use only natural fragrances and use essential oils (carefully and responsibly), herbs, and scents that occur naturally in the products themselves. You may not get unicorn strawberry shortcake surprise scented products from us (or maybe you will), but rest assured, our scents really do come from nature.


The word safe is defined as “protected from or not exposed to danger or risk; not likely to be harmed or lost.” To us, it means that not only are we committed to people and what we put on our skin, but that the planet and process is not only “safe” but also sustainable and ethical. We choose ingredients and suppliers that we trust and follow these same philosophies. We use only natural ingredients in our products. We make sure that no matter what the ingredient is, it comes from a sustainable source and won’t harm you or the planet. We never test our products on animals and we only purchase from companies that don’t.

Toxin Free

We’re all getting familiar with toxins in beauty products. We’ve got parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, just to name a few, and it’s hard to keep up with all the variations these ingredients can go by. You almost have to write a whole research paper before being sure you can use this stuff on your skin. On the flip side, just because something is safe and natural, doesn’t mean it can’t be toxic if used improperly. Certain ingredients can be irritating to the skin, or become cause for concern at certain concentration thresholds or on a particular area of application (eyes, lips, face, body, etc.). We ensure that not only are all of our ingredients themselves safe, but they are used safely. 


And just to note, not every ingredient agrees with everyone the same way. We all have degrees of allergies, we all have degrees of sensitivities. If something does bother you, don’t use it. At least you know what you’re putting on your body and possibly why it’s affecting you, unlike a chemical product.

herb infused oils

Botanically  Infused

Many of our products contain herb infused oils. We infuse organic oils with organic beneficial herb blends, thoughtfully chosen for each product. Each herb is chosen for its unique qualities to aid in health and healing. They also add dynamic, natural scents that outshine synthetic fragrances. Every herb is different and has distinctive qualities that are great on their own, or even better when paired or grouped with others.

Aside from the internal properties herbs can provide, they can have great effects on the skin as well. Many civilizations (Egypt, India, China, Iraq, the list goes on) have utilized herbs for their internal and external benefits for thousands of years. Archaeological evidence indicates that humans were using medicinal plants during the Paleolithic Age, approximately 60,000 years ago. 

Herbs have so many amazing benefits, and when incorporated with rich oils and butters, can be a powerhouse for your skin. Certain herbs can provide antibacterial, antiseptic and antiviral properties. Some herbs possess anti-inflammatory, antifungal and immune boosting aids. When used appropriately, the benefits of herbs and spices can revitalize and favorably alter skin cells, treat hyperpigmentation, detoxify and stimulate circulation and regeneration of cells.

Adding herbal oils to already great natural products, gives them a boost of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that are great for your skin. That is why we choose to add botanicals into our products whenever possible.
