Gabrielle - Founder
our four fundamental formulation principles
ONE / SUSTAINABLE / All ingredients are only ever sourced from producers who practice sustainable farming and harvesting principals - namely organic, biodynamic and responsible wild harvesting. Earth-First.
TWO / INTENT / Products are created with intention of providing a useful and unique product, not to fill shelf space, contributing to over-consumerism. You can do more with less, when intent and conscious consumerism are the driving force.
THREE / EFFICACY / Must provide real results, with the highest levels of quality, performance and safety, contributing towards the health of skin and supporting, not stripping the skins protective microbiome.
FOUR / LOVE / Promoting the importance of love: for self, for others, for animals and our planet. Re-connect to universal energy knowing we are all ’one’. To cause harm is, ultimately to harm oneself.
