We found that Tocopherol, or vitamin E, which is a fat-soluble vitamin that is a naturally occurring antioxidant was the best choice for our products. It also has excellent moisturizing and soothing properties on the skin and is often used in anti-aging products as a rejuvenating agent.

All of our ingredients undergo a strict vetting process before being officially adopted onto our perfumer's palette. We work very hard to find and combine the highest quality and sustainably sourced natural and naturally derived ingredients. This review process directs our standards for human and environmental health. Using natural ingredients is more costly, but it is something we stand behind.
