About

Clean. Thoughtful. Honest.
Clean, thoughtful, and honest have always been a part of my mission statement. From choosing the right ingredients, being transparent with my products and labeling, and being thoughtful with my carbon footprint and where I source from. When it comes to your skin, integrity and ethics will never be compromised.

All of my products are handcrafted in small batches using quality, safe, and researched ingredients. I source locally whenever possible and work with reputable suppliers I trust. Nearly all of my raw ingredients are USDA-certified organic or Ecocert approved. No parabens, formaldehyde, sulfates, or harsh/harmful chemicals, and absolutely no animal testing. I am a strong advocate for transparency, which is why you will always find a detailed ingredients list with all of my products. Your skin is the largest organ on your body. Know what you put on it!

Sustainability & Environmentally Conscious
I purchase fair-trade, organic raw materials whenever possible, such as fair-trade cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut oil, and sugar. Fair trade standards work to keep the planet healthy for generations to come by prohibiting the most harmful chemicals and taking measures to protect natural resources. All of my soaps are palm-free, as palm oil production has led to environmental degradation, deforestation, and wildlife habitat loss.

Everything down to my packaging, shipping materials, and labels have been thoughtfully sourced to reduce my carbon footprint and be environmentally friendly.
  • Many of product and shipping labels are made with 100% post-consumer waste.
  • Gift boxes, fillers, gift wrap, tissue paper, shopping bags, and most shipping boxes are also made from recycled materials and fibers.
  • Packing slip is printed on tree-free paper, made from bagasse, a by-product of sugar cane, biodegradable, compostable, and of course, recyclable.
  • Bubble wrap is made from 40% recycled content with up to 20% from post-consumer sources. 
  • Any cello bags used are made from wood cellulose fibers sourced with sustainable forestry principles, certified biodegradable, compostable, and made carbon zero.
  • Business cards are made with 100% recycled fiber and bleached without the use of chlorine compounds; ancient forest friendly, Green-e Certified, and acid-free.
  • Packing peanuts are eco-friendly, as they are starch based and simply dissolve away in water if you have no use for them.
