What matters the most about our products are the ingredients. And you’ll be pleased to hear that all of them are passionately vegan and that we leave nothing in the realm: as we do our research, we honour mother earth for its generosity. In our handmade process, we carefully select with devotion each plant for its functionality and tactile benefits. We answer: Where? How? and Who made them? If you have come thus far, we are sure it matters to you too! Navigate on the tabs and explore the details of each gorgeous ingredient. Good fun!

Known cancer-causing chemicals, or carcinogen exposure can occur from the inhalation, ingestion, or absorption of many different types of substances. Globally, the laws restricting such chemicals are limited.

Aluminium Compounds

Role: Block sweat ducts. Sweat plays the role of cooling our body down and it helps us detox. Letting our body sweat and control body odour through addressing the balance of our skin microbiome is better for our general well being.

Formaldehyde

Role: Preservative
Preservatives are essential to keep products safe for use over an extended period of time. Our products are water-less and do not require preservatives.

The challenge with chemical components is that some don’t breakdown, once they are washed away down our sinks, they ended up accumulating in our ecosystems and contaminating water and soil. Another important consideration is whether the ingredient adopts sustainable production.

Palm Oil & Palm -Derived Ingredients

Role: Palm oil is widely used as a natural skin conditioning ingredient. Palm is a super-efficient and sustainable crop, but human irresponsible deforestation has caused significant impact on the environment.

We feel by creating a clear demand for sustainably produced palm oil is more effective than prohibiting palm oil usage. As such, we source from environmentally, socially, and ethically responsible manufacturer who is awarded the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certification and undertook to take legal ownership and produce or handle RSPO-certified sustainable oil palm products.

You should know that we are using COSMOS standard as the guiding principle that rules the selection of each of our ingredients. This can ensure they have no known harming effects on humans - no nasties, no naughties. And that the ingredients are truly sustainable and biodegradable. Wild and Gorgeous, as you do!

COSMOS

Role: As a non-profit international association, COSMOS has harmonise different certification guidelines in Europe to create a single, international standard for organic and natural cosmetics. It covers all aspects of the sourcing, manufacturing, marketing and control of cosmetic products.

The guiding principles of the COSMOS® referential are:

  • to promote the use of products from organic farming and to respect biodiversity;
  • to promote using natural resources responsibly while respecting the environment;
  • to promote the use of clean manufacturing processes that respect human health and the environment;
  • to promote the integration and development of the concept of “Green Chemistry”;
  • to ensure transparency for all consumers.

We follow COSMOS’ guiding principles as these are the strictest cosmetic regulation in the world and provide us confident to refer to its standard AISBL raw materials database in our ingredient selection process.
