Our ingredients are more than natural, organic, safe and pure.
The oils and extracts in our products are in their rawest state to ensure you get the full benefits nature intended. You can see and smell the difference in our products-- they showcase the rich color, texture and aroma of the raw ingredients. For example, you can see the green-ish/brown shade of the organic, cold-pressed, virgin pumpkin seed oil in our Beyond Belly Oil and smell the rich aroma of the organic, cold-pressed, fair trade coconut oil in our 3-in-1 Baby Bath Gel.
selecting our ingredients based on what brings the most benefit to the delicate skin of babies and mommas, with an eye on the women and families who source those ingredients. Often, the ingredients we select bring economic and personal benefits to struggling women in other countries.
Our ingredients are not only the highest quality in the industry (organic, non-GMO), but they are also extracted with the highest quality methods (virgin, cold-pressed and supercritical CO2 extracted).
These oils are extracted by first pressed and do not undergo any chemical refining processes. Refining processes can include removal of color, scent and unsaponifiables (to improve shelf life and consistency of oils). Unrefined oils, however, retain the majority of their nutritional value, which benefits hair and skin.
Cold-pressed oils are oils that have been extracted in a controlled temperature setting below 120 F. Cold pressed oils retain most of their subtle flavor, color and nutritional value, which is then passed on to your hair and skin. Cold-pressed oils also have aromas that resemble the fruit or seed; they’re earthy, herbal or fruity. Processed oils smell bland and, at times, burnt. Since we used cold-pressed oils, they retain their naturally pleasant aroma, and when we use essential oils it’s only for aromatic benefits.
This is the cleanest form of extraction and yields the purest result. Oils are are extracted using CO2 (carbon dioxide) gas under pressure at ambient temperatures. Once the oil is extracted from the plant material, the CO2 is simply returned to its gaseous state by lowering its pressure, allowing the gas to quickly and completely dissipate, leaving the just the extract. CO2 extracts contain more elements of the original plant than any other form of extraction.
