My name is Karma and this is my Story....
It all started with a lip balm obsession.
After unsuccessfully trying to find the perfect cruelty free lip balm, and fed up of reading ingredient lists loaded with garbage and chemicals, I set out to formulate my own. At first I just made products for friends, family and myself. After 4 years of research and development I decided I wanted to share it with anyone who might be interested in a safe, cruelty free and effective self care line.
Ingredients you will NEVER find in our products include: formaldehyde donors, Parabens, Talc, Sulfates, animal fats or Bee by products.
WE DO NOT STAND FOR ANIMAL CRUELTY!!
All of our ingredients are responsibly and sustainably sourced. Silk proteins are used in some of our products, however I am very careful to only source silk from suppliers that harvest the cocoon after the silk worms have long moved out. Absolutely no silk worms are harmed or even touched in the process.
We do use Palm oil in some of our soap formulas however we only source Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO), The Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) has developed a set of environmental and social criteria which companies must comply with in order to produce CSPO. These criteria can help to minimize the negative impact of palm oil cultivation on the environment and communities in palm oil-producing regions. Check out ://rspo.org/about for more information on sustainable palm oil.
