Supporting our suppliers

We ensure everyone who works to deliver our natural skincare ingredients is paid fairly.

All our suppliers are signatories to the Nagoya Protocol – a framework that ensures guardians of genetic resources receive a fair share of any benefits that arise from the research and procurement of those resources.

Committed to sustainable packaging

Much of our packaging is made with recyclable glass. We only use plastic when absolutely necessary, and always make sure it’s fully recyclable.

Responsible Production

All our natural skincare ingredients are cultivated using Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP) ensuring sustainable production.

We use green chemistry to ensure that there are no harsh ingredients or harmful effluents released at any point in the development or manufacturing of our products.

Our products are crafted in small batches to prevent overproduction or the loss of freshness and purity.
