#BotanicalBeauty

Exceptional care is taken with each selected ingredient in our handmade blends.

We feed our skin.

As the largest organ of the body, what goes onto our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream in the same way that what we eat is digested by our bodies for its nutritive value.

As such we derive the greatest wellbeing benefit when practising nutritional care with ingredients for the skin.

Our plant extracts are selected for formulation based on the holistic practice of aromatherapy and blended to complement and mutually enhance their respective therapeutic properties.

Using the right natural ingredients in responsible quantities our
sls-, paraben-, petrochemical-, animal-derived, and sulphate-free products
are conscientiously developed with your optimal physiological balance in mind.
