“Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others
without getting a few drops on yourself”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

We’re driven by the spirited belief that the relationship between beauty and the body is an all-natural affair.

Organic ingredients intelligently honour the natural balance of your body.

Like a healthy diet and exercise regime, choosing gentle, natural beauty is essential to maintaining a well-rounded healthy lifestyle. Our range of natural and organic skincare products imitates the skin’s natural water-binding functions, nourishing and healing the skin daily.

Science continues to reveal the harmful effects of chemical-ridden food and beauty products. Often, the use of chemicals on the skin can be just as harmful – or worse – than ingesting them.

TAKE CARE

INGREDIENTS TO AVOID

Tip: if you can’t pronounce it, it’s probably not good for you.

AVOID THESE INGREDIENTS

SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE (SLS)

A harsh detergent and foaming agent found in almost every skin and hair care product. When applied, SLS strips off a layer of natural oils produced by the skin, leaving it feeling rough, dry and susceptible to irritation. In many cases, it can contribute toward a skin rash, eye redness/irritation and urinary tract infection.

ARTIFICIAL FRAGRANCES

Be careful not to be lured in by a delicious fragrance. Most fragrances are synthetic – and toxic. They usually contain a combination of up to 4000 separate ingredients, which by law, need not be disclosed to the public. Synthetic fragrances are highly carcinogenic, and are known to cause headaches and dizziness.

DEA / MEA / TEA

Diethanolamine | Monoethanolamine | Triethanolamine

These are chemical agents found in products that foam up. They are restricted in Europe, partly because tests have found that they have carcinogenic effects. DEA, for example, has been directly linked to kidney and liver damage.

PROPYLENE GLYCOL

A petroleum based by-product that weakens the protein structures and cellular compounds by up to 20%. When absorbed into the skin, this ingredient can cause allergic reactions and liver and kidney damage.

MINERAL OIL

Another petroleum by-product that clogs the pores, suffocating the skin by coating the skin in a layer of what is essentially plastic. This can cause acne and numerous skin disorders and irritations. Scary fact: Baby oil is 100% mineral oil.
