Our Definition of Natural: We define natural as ingredients that are direct from nature, derived from
nature or made from a renewable resource found in nature and are free of the prohibited ingredients.When we choose to use a synthetic ingredient, we choose so based first on the safety of the ingredient
and second on the need for the ingredient, such as for preservation or an active ingredient such as
Retinol, Vitamin C, or Salicylic Acid. Our goal is to use as few safe synthetic ingredients as possible and
adjust our formulas when a suitable natural alternative becomes available.

We are cruelty free meaning we never test on animals, use responsibly sourced ingredients That's why we take every step to keep our products fresh and useful for as long as possible. On average, our products are 99% natural and over half are 100% natural. Why 99% natural? Why not 100% natural? What's the last 1%? Preservation of natural formulas is challenging and we’ve found that natural preservatives simply aren’t effective in a few of our formulas. To ensure the safety, efficacy, and aesthetic of our products and taking keep attention to consumer safety, we may use a safe food grade preservative like sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate or benzyl alcohol, phenoxyethanol at 0.1 – 1% in some of our water- containing products. We chose these food grade preservation because they are safe, non-paraben, non- formaldehyde-releasing preservatives and are used broadly in natural personal care products.
