ARE YOUR FORMULATIONS VEGAN
Yes, our formulations do not contain animal ingredients.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS NATURAL
Yes, our formulations consist of 99% naturally derived ingredients. The 1% non-natural is due to preservatives which keep the products free of harmful microbes.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS TESTED ON ANIMALS?
No. We do not test on animals.
DO YOU USE SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCE?
No. Our fragrance blend is made up of essential oils, coming from fruits, plants, flowers, and trees.
DO YOU USE SYNTHETIC COLORANTS?
No. We choose natural ingredients to change the colour of our products. With this our products can change colour over time, and from batch to batch.
CAN I USE YOUR PRODUCTS WHEN BREASTFEEDING OR NURSING?
To our knowledge there is no risk associated with using our products during pregnancy, however we always recommend consulting your health practitioner to discuss any concerns.
DO YOU USE PALM OIL IN YOUR PRODUCTS?
Palm oil derivatives are present within some ingredients used (please refer to full glossary). These ingredients are certified under the Responsibly Sourced Palm Oil (RSPO) body.
WHERE ARE YOUR PRODUCTS MADE?
Our products are made in England.
WHAT REGULATIONS DO YOU FOLLOW
In order to sell our products we follow the EU’s Ingredient health and safety guidelines that prohibits the use of over 1300 ingredients. These are the most stringent rules for personal care products in the world. All our products undergo stringent microbiological testing, and safety assessments before release into the market.
WHAT IS SLS AND DO YOU USE IT IN YOUR PRODUCTS?
We do not use Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) in our formulations. SLS is a harsh and irritating cleansing and foaming agent, which strips the hair of its natural oils. We use much milder ingredients to cleanse and lather which lock in moisture rather than stripping it out ( see glossary for our full list of ingredients).
WHAT ARE PARABENS AND DO YOU USE THEM IN YOUR PRODUCTS?
No. Parabens are a family of related chemicals that are commonly used as preservatives in cosmetic products. Parabens can seep into the skin and into body tissues and it has been speculated that parabens could potentially lead to cancer formation since they have been found in breast cancer cells. We prefer not to take the risk of using such an ingredient when alternatives exist.
WHAT ARE YOUR BOTTLES MADE OF?
100% aluminium. Aluminium is a ‘permanently available’ material and endlessly recyclable, so carbon savings increase every time the metal passes through the recycling loop. Unlike plastic which needs petroleum, a non-renewable resource, aluminium is extracted from bauxite. Aluminium also acts as an excellent defence against contamination from bacteria and other micro-organisms, as it has an impermeable surface that keeps out air, light and liquid. Once finished with the product, the aluminium bottles can be disposed of in the metal recycling bin.
DO YOUR BOTTLES HAVE BPA (BISEPHONOL A) IN THEM?
No, we use a food grade cosmetic liner on our aluminium bottles which does not contain any BPA or hazardous substances that could migrate to the product and affect its safety. We have have carried out independent testing on our liners to ensure the safety.
WHAT ARE YOUR PUMPS MADE OF?
Our pumps are made of metal instead of the usual plastic pumps. There is a small part of plastic required for the mechanism inside the pump, so they are not 100% plastic free however there is no ‘single use’ plastic since our pumps have a bespoke design which is meant to last. Our pumps can be used with each repeat purchase of our bottles.
WHAT IS YOUR SHIPPING PACKAGING MADE FROM
We use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified cardboard for our shipping boxes. This means you know you are doing your part by buying boxes that have been responsibly produced to ensure a greener future. The FSC works on 10 basic principles to ensure forest and nature. The principles include ensuring compliance with laws, workers' working conditions, forest services, operating plans.
