We have a strong focus on sustainability to minimise our environmental footprint. We continually seek to obtain ingredients from sustainable sources. Purchasing from growers that have an eco-conscious approach to farming and sound ethical practices. Growers that work in harmony with the land and harvest in a sound sustainable way. Thereby enhancing the soil, the plant, our environment and ultimately your precious skin.
We are proud to say that we use fair-trade shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil in our products. Buying fair-trade means supporting an end to the poverty in developing countries. Companies that practice fair-trade pay a fair price to the growers who grew the ingredients. This means a better chance for fair-trade farmers to an economically sustainable life. Giving them better access to basic life necessities that we often take for granted, such as food, shelter and education.
By creating a skincare product that is waterless we are making statement that we hope makes people mindful of their daily use of water. We are very conscious that some of our pure plant botanical ingredients come from countries that suffer from severe water shortages, droughts and famines. Having water on tap is something we should never take for granted. Conserving its use is one of the best ways we can show how much we love, appreciate and cherish it. Small batch, small scale, small production at a sustainable pace also minimises water consumption. To lessen environmental impact and water waste. Every single drop counts.
PALM OIL FREE /
We absolutely have no use for palm oil in any of our products. Palm oil is commonly used in 70% of skincare and soap products. Often hidden in emulsifiers in water based moisturisers, creams and lotions. The palm oil industry is linked to major issues such as deforestation, habitat degradation, climate change, animal cruelty and indigenous right abuses (such as child labour) in the countries where it is produced.
DO NO HARM /
We do no harm to humans, animals or the earth in the production or testing of our skincare. All our products are tested on willing family and friends.
Recyclable and reusable glass bottles and jars is one way we support a green philosophy. By using glass bottles we are doing our part in keeping more plastic out of our oceans. We use compostable courier bags made from corn starch with non toxic inks. We swapped out plastic pumps and nasty tube inserts for medical glass droppers.
We have a full disclosure policy listing every single ingredient on our product labels. You know exactly what you are putting on your skin. We have nothing to hide, no surprises, no concealments. Only pure plant goodness.
