Shea butter is the core ingredient in most of our products, and one of the world’s most powerful natural, protective and cell-regenerative substances. It has a magical “at the touch” melting point that makes it an ideal base medium for soft-solid cosmetics. It’s also rich in vitamins and minerals and works to replenish important lipids in the skin.
Sourcing: Our Shea butter is sustainably grown and harvested in protected parklands in Ghana, and endorsed by the Global Shea Alliance.
Certifications: USDA Certified Organic, Quality Assurance International Certified Organic, VegeCert Vegan Certified, Kosher Certified
Derived from Soy (Spain)
Vitamin E is one of the world’s most powerful natural preservatives. It is especially effective when added to fat mediums like shea butter, as it can extend shelf life by up to 6 months. It’s because of this baby that we don’t need to use no damn chemicals.
Sourcing: The vast majority of Vitamin E used in cosmetics are either manufactured synthetics or derived from Palm Oil - the most popular choice for natural Vitamin E (though also a controversial choice as the harvesting process is reported to contribute to mass deforestation). Our Vitamin E, on the other hand, is derived from Soy, vacuum distilled, and sustainably harvested in Spain

Virgin coconut Oil
Coconut oil is one of the most widely used oils in natural cosmetics – and for good reasons. It’s a powerful antibacterial and natural moisturizer and has a rich fatty acid composition that helps stave off rancidity.
Sourcing: Our lip balm contains an organic, non-GMO extra virgin organic coconut oil from India.
Certifications: USDA Certified Organic
(Argentina, China, Turkey)
Beeswax is often used as a balancing and thickening agent for balms or sometimes hair crémes. It has a distinctive smoothing, sticky texture when applied to skin. Beeswax is also an anti-inflammatory that has the ability to calm irritated skin.
Sourcing: Our Natural Lip Balm line is made with beeswax from a small farm in Argentina.
Certifications: USDA Certified Organic, NON GMO Verified by nongmoproject.org
Design-driven, minimal plastic packaging
All of our packaging is created by our designer-cofounders Krystal Vaquerano and Marie Arlet. Their process begins with free-form illustrations that describe a connection between our packaging, our customers, our cities, and the natural world.
Through our packaging we aim to communicate our love for and connection between the self and our respective environments, capturing the abstractions and forms they share, as well as the differences between them. We believe that the prosperity of one doesn’t need to happen at the expense of the other.
It’s for this reason that all of our products are made with minimal-plastic, 100% recyclable packaging, and why we take care to asses all packaging-related decisions against their environmental and humanitarian impact.
