Q: How can I tell if a skincare product is organic or not?
A: There are lots of terms you will find on skincare and beauty product labels these days including 'natural', 'organic', 'hypo-allergenic' and 'pure'. These terms have no real meaning; a beauty product is natural if it contains only a tiny percentage of natural ingredients. The only way to know what you are buying is to read the ingredients on the label to see how much is natural and how much is chemical. Some ingredients are semi synthetic and can be derived from natural ingredients or from chemicals, yet they will have the same name on the ingredient label. Check that your products Organic ingredients are *certified. -Remember- The first ingredient listed contains the largest amount. Typically, many brand cosmetic and hair care products have 'Water' or 'Aqua' as the first ingredient, you could be paying for 90% water! Also remember, look for Latin ingredient names, it's the quickest and easiest way to ensure your products' ingredients are natural.
Q: Do your products contain any Parabens / SLS / Phthalates / Petrochemicals, Synthetic or Artificial Preservatives, Flavours, Colours, Perfumes, Petroleums, Formaldehydes, Sulphates, Ethozylates, and Silicones?
A: Absolutely not. Our products are completely free of any of these ingredients. We only use the finest Certified Organic and naturally derived ingredients.
Q: Are your products made and stored in a smoke and pet free environment?
A: Yes always. Our storage facilities are always maintained in a safe, secure environment where the premises are constantly cleaned and maintained to international commercial standards.
Q: What's your policy on animal testing?
A: We do not test our products or ingredients on any animals.

A: Most people with sensitive skin have fewer reactions from organic products because they do not contain common sensitizers such as artificial fragrance or colour. However natural ingredients, particularly essential oils, can trigger a reaction in some people.
