Every ounce of aloe found in our products is sourced from Certified Organic farms, and the same care given to its harvest is taken with its transport. Aloe vera delivers unparalleled hydration and shine in our Shampoo, Conditioner, and Sea Salt Sprays.

Every particle is unrefined - nothing ever added, but never a thing taken away. The maintenance of its natural integrity is what makes it one of the most sustainable and mineral-rich salts in the world.

Organic coconut oil is then extracted through fully regenerative expeller-press processes that preserve the wet, tropical climate the coconut needs to grow. The moisture-dense coconut palm tree requires year round warmth and rainfall to grow well and bloom, and the dense humidity and hydration of Sri Lanka provides an optimal environment for it to blossom. Through regenerative practices including mulching, composting, and intercropping, the soil is enriched and biodiversity is promoted throughout every step of the harvesting process. This delicate, creamy oil not only brings soothing properties to our formulas, but also infuses its richly aromatic, vanilla-noted scent to every product it touches - like our Conditioner.

Directly Sourced From New England
We venture to the forests of New England for the organic witch hazel carefully selected for our fomrulas. These large shrubs and small, multi-stemmed trees prefer the rich, well-amended soil and regular rainfall found in New England's climate. Harvest begins in late October when the forests have already been overrun with the brilliant shades of fall and begin to shed their autumn skin. As the weather is getting colder at this time of year, the ground has begun to freeze, which gives foresters access to the crop with minimal potential for adverse impact on the forest grounds. Special care is taken to ensure the integrity of the plants before and after harvest. This balancing and gentle natural ingredient in our Conditioner helps control dandruff, while detangling and adding luster to hair.
