Better ingredients for you and your family
Updated: Apr 15, 2022
In another blog post, we saw an example of what not to buy when it comes to harmful chemical ingredients. There are so many different examples that are similar, I thought it would be easier to explain the ones that are a healthier choice. That's not to say that these are good for everyone, as some people have allergies or sensitivities to certain plants or nuts. There are also Vegan choices, ecological choices, sustainable choices, etc. In the end, it's all about making the right choice for you and your family.
From the beginning, it was important for me to source out the best ingredients I could find on the market. I wanted natural, organic, and sustainable ingredients in order to handcraft everything we offer. As much as I'd like to have everything sourced from our great country, it's impossible. To my knowledge, we can't grow shea trees in any of our climates. And so, it comes from West Africa. That's where sustainability comes in. Palm oil (which I do not use very much) must be from a reputable source and part of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil group or the Palm Done Right group which both govern the production of Palm Oil, so that the lands are not stripped from animals or indigenous people. Greenpeace called RSPO a blueprint of what to do for other organisations. Once again, it's about making the right choices for you.
When you embark on a journey to make conscious decisions about what you eat and use on your body, it can become daunting to separate fact from fiction. I believe doing the right thing has never been more important. We live in a time that has us spending more and more on organic ingredients. And so, to help you with decoding some of the ingredients in our products, have a look below for a basic description. We will keep adding to this list.
*It is advised to always do a skin test prior to the use of any ingredient or product for possible allergic reactions.
