Our Ethically Sourced Ingredients

Every ingredient before use is well researched, we select pure plant oils for their ability to hydrate, nourish, repair, and protect the skin. We want to do our bit to create and live in a more sustainable world. We only use ingredients that have been sourced in a fair and ethical way, including the people who grow, harvest, and sell it. This is why we do not use Palm oil (a cheap oil with far too much destruction to land, animals and the environment), or Mica (a colourant sourced from illegal mines in India and Madagascar where child slavery, as young as 5 years old, is used at cost).
Simply live in harmony with Nature.

Celebrate Earth Day every day … No one person has to do it all but if each one of us follow our heart and our own inclinations we will find the small things that we can do to create a sustainable future and a healthy environment … What one man can do is dream. What one man can do is love. What one man can do is change the world. – John Denver
