Part of who we are as a brand is to embrace all the natural things in life. We love products that are cruelty-free, vegan, 100% organic and free of any harmful toxins. Harmful substances such as parabens and sulfates are often used in majority of skin and haircare products as a preservative. However, only in recent years has there been an increasing awareness of the negative impact it has on our body and we love that! Parabens are known to disrupt the hormone function. Sulfates are added to scrub of dead skin cells, but are so harsh that they also strip away the oils our body produces that are essential to healthy skin. We’ve made a list of our favourite natural products that will make you look and feel your best.
