We go to great lengths to find the highest-quality ingredients we can. They are always natural and sustainable, usually organic and oftentimes wildcrafted. Furthermore, we avoid oils that are high in polyunsaturated fats (PUFA), even the trendy ones like rosehip and sea buckthorn. Instead we sustainably wildcraft rosehips and sea buckthorn from our local Nordic environment and infuse them into oils that are rich in saturated fats. We believe this is the best long-term solution for our planet, and the best long-term solution for your health and skin. Learn more about the problem with high PUFA oils here.
Our products contain NO synthetic fragrances or colors, dyes, preservatives, sulfates, parabens, pthalates, PEG, SLS, GMO, chemical processing, fillers, foaming agents, high PUFA oils, cruelty, crap or compromises.
