Being a green business was a big part of the motivation for starting the company and has guided our vision and philosophy with regards to product formulation from the start. Over the years we have learned a lot about the myriad ways, big and small, a company can deepen its sustainability and as we grow, we continue to find new and greener ways to do even the simple things in a business. As we continue to grow we continue to embrace and apply practices as appropriate and feasible towards this end.
For our industry, it all starts with the source --ingredients and packaging, and drills down from there. From cradle to grave, we are committed to maintaining ecologically sound manufacturing processes and using primarily organic, sustainably grown and harvested bio-based raw materials to ensure their safety and integrity for everyday use; make a minimal footprint on the environment in terms of resources used to make them; and maintain full biodegradability at the end of their life cycle.
That's why our products are free of synthetic chemicals and petroleum ingredients, handmade locally in Northern California with high quality certified organic oils and pure essential oils sourced from around the world, and packaged in re-usable or recyclable containers.
