GET TO KNOW US!
We mean it, too! That’s why we celebrate the look and feel of real, natural skin and none of the models on our site have been retouched to hide any of their features that make them unique. Got it? Good! Now get your glow on!
Once we find an ingredient we like, we’ll follow it around the world. To make sure we always use the best of what’s out there for our skincare, we keep track of their growing seasons at home and elsewhere. Here’s what you’ll find in our bottles:
We adore these fuzzy fruits. Depending on the season, you’ll find us in either sunny California, or somewhere in North Africa, picking out the juiciest ones. It’s how we get the fragrant extracts and kernel oils we want for our scrubs and body washes.
Crushed walnut shell powder is the gentle-yet-effective secret behind many of our scrubs. After harvesting the walnuts in California, we carefully mill them to just the right size for a deep but thorough exfoliation.
- Green Tea
All hail the green tea revolution! Not only does it make a refreshing drink, but did you know its also got all sorts of skin benefits too? We’ve gone all green-eyed.
Our green tea leaves come from China and are processed in the traditional Chinese way. This involves heating them to stop oxidation so they stay that lovely vibrant green colour. The goodness is then extracted by very gently by soaking them. It takes a little longer but we think it’s worth it.
The humble oat doesn’t shout about it’s merits but we don’t mind doing it.
Our oatmeal comes from the USA. A cool and moist climate suits those oats down to the ground. The whole oat kernel is ground into a fine powder. It’s then extracted with water, filtered and distilled.
Slosh! Coconut milk is irresistible. Our extract comes from coconuts harvested from tall Caribbean palm trees. The nut is cracked open and the milk is extracted from the flesh by a gentle water-soaking process. No harsh chemicals! Just the good stuff.
These Caribbean beauties don’t just look good on the shores of a sandy beach. *Heart* the coconut.
Plump, jewel-like, and known for their omegas, cranberry extract is the perfect addition to our lotions. Plus, they smell great! Our cranberries come from the USA where they’re harvested from flooded fields in the fall. All the good stuff is gently extracted to make sure our cranberries aren’t damaged in the process.
