Are your haircare products safe for colour-treated hair?

Are your products safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Although most of our products are made using a low concentration of essential oils, we still err on the side of caution as skin sensitivities can change during a pregnancy. Be aware of your body’s reactions and always patch test new products before full body application. Most wash-off products (such as soap and shampoo) are generally regarded as safe to use, however we always recommend consulting a health professional for advice.
Do you use GMO ingredients?

Do you test on animals?
No we do not, nor will we ever test on animals!

Are your products biodegradable and safe to use in natural waterways or septic tanks?
Yes, all of our products are biodegradable and will not harm natural ecosystems.
What are your expiry dates?
All of our products are formulated to have a minimum shelf life of 2 years, unopened. Expiry dates are based on products being stored in a cool, dry place.
Many of our products will also have a specified PAO (the little open jar symbol on the label) which tells you how long it is expected to last after opening. Most of our products are good for 12 months after opening.
Please note that as our products do not contain chemical preservatives, heat, direct sunlight and humidity may impact the product’s shelf life. Please feel free to contact us if you have any concerns.
