Why We Do It

Ten years ago, eating clean, organic foods was not only challenging but in few people’s stream of consciousness. Today, more than 45% of North Americans actively seek out organic foods to help fuel their bodies. In the same vein, the body care industry in North America has and continues to lag behind other countries in the regulation of ingredients approved for use in body care and cosmetic products.

We believe that what we put on our bodies, and the bodies of our children and loved ones, is as important as what we put in our bodies. We are taking a stand to help make families healthier through our organic, pure and effective products and follow the most rigorous standards when it comes to the ingredients we use in creating our beautiful products. We are happy to share what being USDA and Canadian Organic Certified means, our Product Promise (ingredients that are off limits… always) and what we mean by our effective and unique three step bodycare process ‘Nourish’ below.

USDA Organic Certified

Organic is a labeling term that indicates that the product has been produced through strict and rigorous methods. The organic standards describe the specific requirements that must be verified by a USDA-accredited certifying agent before products can be labeled USDA organic. It is the highest standard of purity in the body care industry and encompasses the vast majority of “green labelling” and more.

Overall, organic operations must demonstrate that they are protecting natural resources, conserving biodiversity, and using only approved ingredients in the production of their products. Many companies around the world are starting to remove some of the harmful chemicals that have been prevalent in cosmetic and over the counter products for decades but few have taken steps to achieve the highest, most rigorous standard of purity, USDA Organic Certification.

When it comes to hygiene, most North Americans typically jump into a steaming hot shower daily using the most lathering fragrant soaps on hand; unknowingly full of surfactants and toxins, both of which strip the natural oils from the skin. They then towel off and find the thickest lotion to put all the moisture back in. Moisturizers, full of water, typically contain chemical antibacterials and preservatives which are then absorbed directly into the skin.

In India, families gather in a warm room and provide massages to each other in the evenings. This ritual likely started as a way to ease sore muscles in farming communities but has evolved to be a staple in most homes. Scalp massages, shoulder massages, foot massages followed by sitting and letting the local butters absorb into deepest levels of the skin. A bath using a mild soap then removed any excess oil. This way the skin is nourished from the inside out.

Given the reversal of the way the skin is taken care of and the use of our special ingredient, kokum butter (derived from the Mangosteen plant), there should be little need to moisturize after cleansing.
