We take many things into consideration when choosing our ingredients and suppliers.
- Where was it grown? We look at the country that a plant is grown to determine whether the industry has a good reputation for sustainability, labor laws, fair wages, and safe workplaces.
- How was it grown? We look for wildcrafted, biodynamic, certified organic, and organic botanicals. Plants grown in rich soils that are high in minerals and antioxidants.
- How was it extracted? Certain extraction methods produce higher levels of plant actives such as vitamin E and beta-carotene. Unrefined is better so we opt for this as much as possible. Our preference is always cold-pressed, CO2 extraction, distilled, and infused.
- Is it ethical and sustainable? As the natural industry grows, so does the demand for plants and trees, which can be good for some but not others. We look for suppliers that harvest in an ethical manner that respects the entire eco-system.
