PRODUCT QUERIES


4) Are your products natural?


All of our body and hair care products contain 100% natural fragrances and are formulated to be gentle yet effective. Our candle range contains high quality synthetic fragrance along with a custom blend of soy and coconut wax, all of which have been through rigorous testing to ensure their safety and compatibility. We believe that the most effective products are ones which utilise both natural and man-made ingredients.


5) Do you use sulphates?


Our body washes and shampoos contain sodium laureth sulphate, a mind and highly effective surfactant. Studies have shown that it is perfectly safe to use at levels far greater than we employ and consistently out-performs alternative cleansing agents. For those with sensitive skin, we advise trying a sample of any product which contains this ingredient to ensure suitability.
