    Sustainable Sourcing

    Purely Plants and Minerals
    None of our ingredients derived from crude oil, or synthetic chemicals 

    Organic
    We use primarily organically grown plants free from pesticides and herbicides.  

    Domestic
    We use ingredients primarily from North America, this keeps our carbon costs down 

    Ethical
    We work with farms and processors that pay a living wage 

    Abundant
    We only use abundant plants and minerals, that are responsibly harvested

    Traced
    To ensure ingredients haven’t adulterated we get chain of custody paperwork from our suppliers 

    Certified
    We’ve been certified vegan and cruelty free 

      #NoNewPlastic

      Reincarnated bottles
      The bottles we use are made from 100% pre-existing recycled material, collected and reprocessed in the state of California. This means #nonewplastic AND it stops existing plastic from ending up in the landfill or ocean.

      Refills
      We hold refill events 12 times a year and have partnered with 15 retailers around the country who will refill your bottles.

      Silk screening

      We’re shifting all of our labels to silkscreening.

      Stakeholder accountability
      We’ve refused to work with groups that don’t put planet before profit. We’ve been able to convince Urban Outfitters among others to begin accepting environmentally friendly packaging.   

      We are on pace to use #nonewplastic before the end of 2020.
