OUR MISSION IS TO FORMULATE PLANT-BASED PRODUCTS TO EXFOLIATE, HYDRATE, SOOTHE, HEAL AND PROTECT YOUR SKIN
Expect nourishment from rich butters and silky oils that will keep your skin looking and feeling super supple and dewy, and products that are saturated with natural antioxidants – these plump and firm while protecting your skin from environmental toxins that contribute to tired, older-looking skin.
WE USE FRAGRANCES THAT HAVE THERAPEUTIC VALUE
Pure essential oils are known to have therapeutic value, so each of our products has a customised scent profile. Sass’ hydrating Prickly Pear Face Cream, for example, contains a bespoke blend of rosewood, geranium and mandarin essential oils, which are uplifting and regenerating. And the cool, refreshing scent of spearmint in our bestselling face cleanser is invigorating.
We will never use toxic chemicals, additives or denatured alcohol in anything we do!
