We believe that our skin looks its best when it is healthy. Unbalanced skin creates symptoms such as acne, dullness, inflammation, and dryness. We don’t believe in fighting our skin’s nature, but rather in nourishing it so that it can return to its natural, healthy glow. This means soothing breakouts with anti-inflammatory ingredients and products that promote a healthy skin flora so that your skin can win the battle on its own. We do not believe in using harsh chemicals that dry the skin or create dependencies. We believe in promoting healthy, hydrated, clear skin with natural and safe ingredients that work with the skin to promote balance. We formulate all our products with this philosophy in mind, which means every one of our products will nourish and heal the skin, not strip it or sensitize it.
Our skin absorbs up to 60% of the ingredients that we apply onto it. What gets absorbed goes straight into the bloodstream, unlike our food that first gets processed by our digestive system. This means that our skincare can seriously affect our health! Just like the food we eat, we believe that fresh, natural, wholesome ingredients are the best for your skin's health. Plants and minerals can be beautifully powerful and take excellent care of your skin when used properly.
Overdoing it can do more harm than good. Over washing your face because you have breakouts can dry your skin out and lead to more breakouts and inflammation. Using a detoxifying mask 2-3 times per week can improve a complexion, but using one every day will probably irritate your skin. Understanding what your skin needs and applying it in moderation are key to having healthy skin. Sometimes that means weekly exfoliation, a nightly heavy moisturizer, sebum-balancing serums, or nothing at all. You might need a very simple regimen or a more complex multi-product system.

You are what you eat/do! We know that's not quite how the saying goes. . . but it's so true! Eating healthy and exercising regularly are key to healthy skin. Inflammation, acne, dryness, and sensitivities can all stem from within. Using good skincare products is just one part of your journey to glowing skin. To keep your body and skin in its optimum health, we recommend eating a balanced diet with (organic when possible) whole foods like legumes, grains, fruits and vegetables, drinking plenty of water, exercising regularly, and managing stress through yoga, meditation, aromatherapy and other holistic methods.
