FAQ

Are your skin care products made in small batches?

Absolutely, it's what we are all about, small batch artisan hand-made, hand-whipped, hand-poured skin care! Each product is made in small batches, allowing us to avoid using harsh preservatives and keeping your product fresh and pure.

Why don't you use preservatives?

When we label or describe something as being natural, we mean it. We feel there is no need for synthetics, silicone, parabens, plastic or other toxins. We are serious about every ingredient and believe every ingredient has a purpose, working with your skin and not against it. 

Why does my product look/smell differently to my previous purchase?

When you first try our all-natural concentrated cream, balms and oils, you may find them a little richer than standard commercial water-based products this is because our creams and oils are natural concentrates. They do not contain water. This is what enables us to avoid using harsh preservatives and emulsifiers. Every batch is handmade using traditionally artisan methods, blended only with pure and natural ingredients from nature. Using this method and natural ingredients can sometimes result in a variation in colour, texture and scent of the finished product. This inconsistency is the result of working with nature and natural harvested raw ingredients, like the seasons, textures and colours may vary with every harvest but will not affect the quality of your product and the great benefits are always the same!

Are your products safe to use during pregnancy and/or while breastfeeding?

If you have any questions or concerns about ingredients and pregnancy, please consult with your GP or medical professional.

Are your products 100% vegan & cruelty-free?

You bet! Every ingredient is vegan friendly and there is no animal testing whatsoever. We only work with suppliers who hold the same values as us.
