HOW IT'S MADE
The following materials are favored:
Essential oils: Extractions of steam-distilled roots, flowers, leaves, barks, grasses; or, pressed fruit rinds and seeds
Absolutes: Solvent-extracted flower essences (not used in all blends)
Resins: Viscous fossil deposits, usually from trees
Meadowfoam Seed Oil: Cold-pressed, additive-free carrier oil
All materials are sustainably cultivated, vegan, and free of: animal testing, pesticide residues, fillers, phthalates, and parabens. Botanicals are acquired seasonally for optimum quality and shelf life. Every last drop is hand-blended, and each bottle is labeled and packed to order—meaning I happily see pipettes in my sleep. ⚗
SUSTAINABILITY & SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Instead of dominating nature, we believe in mindful consumption of less, well-made personal care items, which inspires ethical, sustainable business practices. Highlights include:
Refusing to rely non-renewables—especially endangered plant species. Meadowfoam seed oil is my hero: countless uses, long shelf life, and ecologically abundant.
Minimizing packaging to reduce waste.
Reusable vials. Just wash and send back for a refill, repurpose, or recycle.
All packaging materials are BPA-free, low-impact, and recyclable. Because landfills are sad.
Sourcing locally whenever possible to further reduce the carbon footprint of transportation.
No almond-derived ingredients from California are used in any formulations due to the severe drought (talk about harvester of sorrow).
Supply is always traded fairly. The like-minded farmers, distilleries, and glass-makers I do business with deserve much love.
