oils & butters
As the old saying goes: "Not all oils were created equal". We use only the best quality cold pressed, unrefined oils and butters in our cosmetics. Such oils retain the highest quantity of active ingredients, vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. We also use organic oils and if oils with such certification are not available, then we ensure we use a wild-harvested oil instead. Have a look at the individual product pages to find out more about the organic origins of our ingredients. All our products are 100% vegan, 100% plant based and the vast majority are 99% organic.
Essential oils are miracles of nature. The scientists are now discovering what the traditional wisdom knew for thousands of years - there is an essential oil for everything. But using essential oils is as much a science as it is art. We use only the best quality essential oils to ensure their potency and effectiveness. We choose the blends we use in our cosmetics on the basis of their properties rather than the fragrance alone, therefore you may encounter products, which do not smell "like your typical face cream/body butter/bath oil", but that makes our products all the more exciting!
Vegetable glycerine is a natural product of making soap from vegetable oils and butters. Its safety and non-toxicity was confirmed through a number of studies. In fact, glycerine is naturally occurring in human tissue. The main reason why we sometimes use glycerine in our cosmetics is its remarkable water binding property (it's a natural humectant). Glycerine is also very good at penetrating cell membranes, therefore delivering the moisture deep into the skin, where it's most needed. Further studies have confirmed multiple other benefits of glycerine from helping the skin cells to develop properly to treating psoriasis. What a skilled little chap!
