Do your products have any kind of fragrance or scent?
We never add any synthetic, artificial, or even natural fragrance to our products. We understand that "natural fragrance" is not truly natural. We keep our products relatively unscented, but an active constituent or ingredient may provide a slight scent. An example would be lavender extract which would provide a light lavender scent. We are very concerned with the health and environmental consequences of fragrance.
Are your products paraben free? Do they contain phthalates?
Our products do not contain any added parabens at all. We can not guarantee that our products are paraben free because some naturally occurring parabens are found in blueberries, strawberries, and olive leaf. We will never add parabens. Our products do not contain any added phthalates.
Are your products microbiome friendly? Are they ph balanced?
Our products are what we would consider microbiome friendly. We do not use sodium lauryl sulfate or triclosan, both of which disrupt the skin. We also do not use any ingredients that might kill beneficial bacteria on the skin, like Tea Tree Oil, which many other skincare companies do.
