Our ingredients policy

High performance, quality, safe, natural and organic ingredients are our absolute priority

Animal testing

We never do it and are certified cruelty free, vegan and vegetarian under PETA

No animal ingredients

ALL our products are suitable for vegans and vegetarians

Preservatives

We do NOT use preservatives in our products. Our formulations are ALL water free & do not require a preservative system. Of course, preservatives have their place in skincare and are necessary in water containing formulations, however even ‘natural, plant-derived’ preservatives have been shown to be detrimental to microbiome health. We all have healthy flora living on our skin that need to be supported

Vitamin E

We only use a premium natural source of vitamin E

Aloe vera powder

A succulent plant which offers many benefits and is suited to ALL skin types, especially dry, damaged, irritated and sensitive.

Aloe vera has been used for centuries to treat a variety of skin ailments, including sunburn, blisters and burns

Apricot kernel oil

Apricot kernels are crushed to produce this light oil, which revitalises, nourishes and moisturises dry, sensitive or inflamed skin. Its wonderfully light texture makes it easily absorbed into the epidermis or uppermost levels of the skin.

Aqua

Water! Water is used in the formulation of virtually every type of cosmetic and personal care product. However, apart from our natural, preservative-free rosewater, water is NOT found in any of our products. When water is added to a formulation a preservative system is also needed. Although there are ‘natural, plant-based’ preservatives on the market, they have been shown to be detrimental to the skin’s lymph and microbiome health
