From Founder Carolyn on Living Responsibly:
To Live Responsible - Both environmental and social responsibility are value statements we hold dear in every decision made from sourcing, formulating, packaging to delivering.
Sourcing follows strict guidelines such as ingredients not obtained regionally are fair trade certified (when applicable).
If organic is not an option, we work with producers who follow organic guidelines or ethically wild-harvested using rules outlined by United Plant Savers.
Oils, butters and waxes must be GMO free and unrefined or minimally refined depending on formulation requirements.
Preservatives and lab based ingredients are researched extensively for environmental impact and personal safety. Ingredients must be biodegradable and molecule sizes are large enough to not be readily absorbed in the top layers of the skin.
We never test on animals or use animal based ingredients. We do use bee products which come from local bee keepers who are stewards to their livelihood.
We try to be transparent as much as possible. You're welcome to contact us anytime for more information on ingredients and formulas.
We give back to those whos land we live on. Supporting both Indigenous Peoples and environmental stewardship efforts. Current donations (reciprocity & reparations) include Chinook Nation and the Wild Salom Center.
