All products are vegan except for Flora which contains a small amount of beeswax.
We do not use any synthetic fragrances or ingredients which can be irritating to the most sensitive skin. However, please reference our product ingredient lists if you are concerned about an allergy.
Our oils and ingredients come from all over the world. We always use the highest quality ingredients we can find, and buy organic ingredients whenever they are available. If we cannot find an organic option, our ingredients are almost certainly from wild harvests.
Most are, yes. In fact, our founder used Attar on her baby's diaper rash, gold on his acne, and XX on his cradle cap. We don’t recommend using Rei due to the ingredient retinol or Aloe due to the ingredient clary sage being contraindicated.
Yes, but that doesn’t mean your skin will react well to them. We formulate based on the belief that the majority of people have sensitive skin, so we’ve taken serious precautions to choose the least irritative oils derived from the purest extraction methods, of the highest quality and formulate without essential oils that are known common irritants.
