OUR OILS, BUTTERS, & WAXES:
We use only pure & unrefined oils, butters, & waxes. We do not use any emulsifiers or synthetic ingredients. On rare occasion, we may have to use a refined oil, butter, or wax for certain consistencies & scents. If & when this happens, we make sure the process is ONLY done through water refining or natural filtering, with NO toxic chemical refining or processing.
We use only essential oils, herbs, & pure plant extracts (or the natural smell of the ingredient itself, such as cocoa butter) to scent our products. We do not use any artificial fragrances.
We use only essential oils, herbs, & pure plant extracts (or the natural taste of the ingredient itself, such as mint leaf) to flavor our products. We do not use any artificial flavors.
We use only pure, plant or mineral based liquids & powders to color our products. We do not use any artificial colors.
OUR OTHER INGREDIENTS:
We use only pure plant & earth based ingredients. We do not use any artificial, adulterated, or toxic ingredients. If we ever find that an ingredient is questionable after we've begun using it, we will STOP its use & find other alternatives immediately.
DO WE USE PRESERVATIVES?
We strive not to use any preservatives in our products. Almost all of our products are oil / powder based, which are not favorable environments for bacterial growth, so they are generally preservative free.
Some of our ingredients (such as herbs & essential oils) already provide varying levels of natural preservation.
*** With the exception of a very few specific cases, companies that use water based products without preservatives are RISKING YOUR HEALTH.
Due to the Pure & Non-Toxic philosophy we embrace, we are VERY selective in, & conscious of our suppliers & the ingredients we use.
We are pleased to announce that if & when we choose to make any water based or other products that need to be preserved, we will be working with a company called Active Micro Technologies, that manufactures natural preservatives using plant ferments that are FREE of GMO's, synthetics, & toxic chemicals. YAY!
We will not use all of their products, but only a select few. Below is more information for your convenience:
- The preservatives we will use (if any), are made from ferments of Radish Root, Black Currants, Aspen Bark, Kimchii, Elderberry, Coconut, Lactobacillus.
- They are GMO Free with NO Ethoxylation, NO Irradiation, No Sulphonation, No Ethylene Oxide treatment, No Hydrogenation, No Preservatives, No Additives, & No Solvents.
