We are incredibly passionate about bringing you, our customer, products that promote your health and wellness – to do so we, wherever possible source our ingredients to be certified organic. We are also passionate about working with other small businesses for locally sourced ingredients, those that are cruelty free, fair trade and sustainable. We are also currently working with our suppliers to close the waste loop - returning containers for refilling, passing on empty buckets to local community, schools and kindergartens and recycling via our home recycling and REDCYCLE.
Certified Organic unrefined Shea Butter. Sourced from Kperisi Village in Northern Ghana, the women and families use traditional handmade methods to remove the butter from the nut without additional the need for chemical processes. Certified fair trade and cruelty free, this Shea Buttter is thick, creamy and full of skin loving goodness. Shea Butter is used in our products because of its ability to nourish the skin and help improve skin conditions. It contains high amounts of Vitamins A, E & F which in combination help prevent wrinkles and face lines, improve eczema and dermatitis and help soften rough, dry or inflamed skin. We love using Shea Butter to help heal the skin naturally.
Olive Oil. Sourced locally from Cooladerra Farm in the Frankland River in the South West of WA, this family business grows its olive oil using organic principles – but is not yet certified organic. Sheep munch up weeds and the olives are cold pressed on site and bottled as needed. No additional chemicals or solvents are added during the process. You will notice some of our herbal balms have a slightly nutty and grassy smell – this is due to the minimal processing of our key ingredients.
Candelilla Wax. A vegan wax, chosen because of its high melting point, (especially for hot summers in Australia!). It comes from the leaves of the Candelilla plant grown in sub desert conditions in Northern Mexico & Southern Texas. The wax is removed by boiling the dry stems – we use it for its stabilising and emulsifying properties. Candelilla wax is rich in nutrients and fatty acids, it is protective and moisturising, but also has anti-inflammatory properties to calm itchy skin.
Essential Oils. We obtain our essential oils from a variety of artisan distillers and small family owned businesses within Australia. We are proud to support other small businesses like ourselves, but at all times ensure the essential oils we are using in our products are 100% pure, natural and unadulterated.
