INGREDIENT ATTRIBUTES

We research and choose all natural ingredients based on what they do for your skin, hair, and body. While natural ingredients are generally safe to use on most skin types, there is always the chance that you might be allergic or irritated by an ingredient. Always test a product on a small area of your skin before applying to a larger area.

We believe that balance of the soul, body, mind and environment is key to wholeness and healing. We also believe that Nature provides everything needed to maintain that balance.
