3. How are your products different from other “natural” and “free from” products?

 The terms “natural” and “free from” are very heavily and loosely used in today’s personal care industry.  Products may be “free from” certain ingredients such as sulfates but still contain similar petroleum derived cleansers.  We are committed to using as many organic ingredients as possible, all ingredient are vegetable derived and safely processed.  The only petroleum derived ingredient we use is Sodium Benzoate, which is a food grade preservative and approved for use in organic products by Ecocert and NSF.

4. Isn’t gluten intolerance or sensitivity a food issue?

No. Many people with gluten-sensitivity and celiac experience hives, rashes, dermatitis, eczema and other skin irritation after using a product that contains gluten or wheat derived ingredients. Gluten free personal care products are especially important for our little ones who put their hands and fingers in their mouths and rub their face and eyes.
