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.
