We work hard to use raw ingredients that are simple and recognizable, such as olive, coconut, palm, castor, jojoba, sweet almond, avocado and hempseed oils. We love cocoa and shea butter, and buy our shea butter fair-trade from women producers in Ghana (www.globalmamas.org). We also grow many of the herbs and botanicals that are used in our products and our other ingredients are sourced locally whenever possible.
We use simple, recycled, or recyclable packaging to conserve resources and reduce waste. In both our business and our personal lives we make a concerted effort to reduce our energy consumption and to live in a sustainable fashion. We are obsessive recyclers and rabid composters.
