Products grounded in nature, supported through science, and inspired by life.™
We strive to make ethical choices for our company, consumer and planet - from ingredient sourcing and processing, all the way through to our products’ end of life. We formulate to the COSMOS standard whenever possible, which is one of the leading third-party global certification processes regulated by leaders in biodiversity safety and sustainability. This means you’re purchasing products you can trust as much as you love.
We use natural, naturally-derived and organic ingredients to create our line of clean beauty products. We’re Prop 65 and EU compliant, which means we formulate without 1300+ banned ingredients in our skincare.
We’re committed to continuous curiosity, education and knowledge. We evolve our company standards as research and technology do, so we can continue to create top rated clean, effective beauty products.
COSMOS is a third party global certification regulated by leaders in biodiversity safety and sustainability.
The certification’s guidelines help regulate sustainable production and consumption, like:
Promoting the use of products from
organic agriculture, and respecting biodiversity.
Using natural resources responsibly, and respecting the environment.
Using processing & manufacturing that are clean & respectful of human health and the environment.
Integrating & developing the concept of "Green Chemistry” *
* 'Green Chemistry,' meaning ‘greener’ chemical processes to more traditional forms of product development that can be detrimental to the planet. It's a commitment to seek more sustainable options in product formulation.
This is an ever-changing certification, meaning we will hold ourselves accountable to the highest standard, which is extremely important since the US beauty industry has little regulation. It also means that our third-party partners, manufacturers, and formulators are held accountable to the same standards.Explore our COSMOS certified products
