We do not test any of our ingredients, formulations or finished products on animals. Our products are cruelty-free every step of the way.
We do not sell our products in China or any other country that requires mandatory animal testing or 3rd party animal testing on skin care products.
We consider our products to be non-toxic and are vigilant about our ingredients and base our formulation decisions on several factors such as efficacy, safety and proven studied results and not just whether an ingredient is natural or not as many natural ingredients are heavily processed and do not belong in skin care formulations.
We use several resources when analyzing the ingredients for our formulations including the EWG database and the Whole Foods Premium List as we feel these list are most closely aligned with our belief in dermal vitality and biodegradable earth friendly ingredients We are far more interested in what goes into our products then what is not in our products and we would never want to fall short of offering the very best formulations just to fit into a “green washing” box.
When it comes to our ingredients we categorize them according to what they are, how they are processed and what their benefits are.
Formulated Without: Parabens – Phthalates – Synthetic Colors – Hydroquinone – Artificial Fragrance – Formaldehyde – Silicone – Mineral Oil – DEA’s – Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer – No Magic or Secret Ingredients.

Our focus has always been a balance of both functionality and environmental wellbeing.
We do not use plastic containers for any of our full size products as plastic is not only environmentally unfriendly it is also not a high quality substance that we want our precious ingredients to sit in for long durations of time. We do not use plastic ingredients in our formulations for the same reason that plastic is not good for human skin or the environment. We are currently sourcing new green technology to replace the plastic pumps and lids and as the plastic ban becomes more wide spread this task will become easier to accomplish.
Plastic ingredients that we do not use are: Silicone, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer – Hydrogenated Polyisobutene – Dimethicone.
We use all glass containers that protect the active ingredient molecules from oxidative damage and light.
Our jars and bottles are also aesthetically pleasing and can be repurposed as storage containers for many small items and small flower vases.
All of our products are free of animal ingredients and by products of animals with the exception of Honey that we use in the following products: Himalayan Honey Mask, Daily Dirt Exfoliant and Elixir Noir Cleanser
Below is the type and process we use for our honey usage.
Our prime concern is for the health and natural life of the honey bee and this is why wild honey is very costly as it is not over harvested for mass production. Our honey is ethically sourced, raw, certified organic, certified GMO free and Fair Trade Certified from an artisanal honey collector.
1. The bees eat only the pollen which they collect from nature, and are not feed “pollen substitutes” which can be made of GMO soya or other substitutes of any kind.
3. There are no chemicals used to collect the honey.
4. The honey is raw and unfiltered.
