manufactured with a conscience
Before any product reaches our shelves, it is not only tested for efficacy and safety, but subjected to a strict environmental audit.
The all-natural ingredients we use are harmless to the environment (and your skin), unlike the synthetic chemicals used by industrial manufacturers.
Wherever possible, our paper and fabric packaging is handmade, natural, biodegradable and recyclable.
We use natural fabrics such as wool, felt, linen, cotton and silk, all of which are biodegradable and free of formaldehyde.
Most of our fabrics are hand-woven and many are made from organic fibers produced without the use of pesticides or damaging industrial fertilizers.
We conserve energy and minimize our carbon emissions by sourcing local ingredients and raw materials and replacing machines with human hands. Seventy percent of our soaps are produced using gas as a heating source – a more efficient and cleaner source of energy than the electricity generated by coal-fired power stations.
None of our products are packaged under pressure so they emit no ozone-damaging CFCs.
