  • Do you use chemicals in your products?

Short answer, yes. Everything is a chemical. Water. Oxygen. Our bodies are entirely comprised of chemicals.

Let's debunk the myth that if an ingredient cannot be pronounced that it must be harmful. Cyanide flows from the tongue easily, but is quite harmful. What is butyrospermum parkii? It's simply shea butter, which is a wonderful moisturizer for your skin. Don't fall trap to the fear mongering. Chemicals are not bad; harmful chemicals are. Be wary of companies that claim they do not use chemicals. Stay curious, ask questions, and be informed.

 

  • A Note About Fragrance & Flavor Oils

The difference between a flavor and fragrance oil is a flavor oil is lip safe. While they are a "flavor" oil, they do not produce a taste; a sweetener would need to be added, which I do not use.

Most of my products are scented using organic essential oils. Due to nature, some scents simply are not available in essential oils; for instance, many berry notes. However, all of my flavor oils and a large majority of my fragrance oils are USDA-certified organic, as my supplier provides natural flavors and fragrances derived from plant, vegetable, and fruit extracts/materials; no artificial or synthetic additives. Any other fragrance oils used are phthalate-free. All flavors and fragrances are always used within the safe and recommended usage rates.
