We envision a world where women are cared for—by themselves, each other, and society. We believe women will lead the global movement of defying the status quo, but only if they have self-respect and support each other
We continue to build sourcing relationships that allow us to source our ingredients from their most native home. While this is a work in progress, we’re proud to say we’ve partnered with a local cocoa farm and bee keeper here on the Big Island, HI, and our live ingredients including avocado and papaya are sourced from our local farmers’ market. We capture, filter, and UV sterilize pure rain water ourselves!
Unlike many other “natural” products, none of our products contain preservatives, emulsifiers, or stabilizers. This means you’ll want to use them within 6 months, and that texture/taste may vary if stored incorrectly. We always recommend storing our products in a cool, dry place.
Believe it or not, preservatives like Citric Acid, emulsifiers like Polysorbate, and stabilizers such as carrageenan are often included in products labeled and marketed as natural or healthier alternatives. Just because an additive was derived from natural ingredients, doesn’t mean you want it on your skin! Look for ingredients included in their most whole form, instead (like our Salve)
Each of our products uses at least one live ingredient. Here’s what that means:
A live ingredient is one that hasn’t been distilled, preserved, extracted, or altered in any other way. In other words: we use it in its most natural, potent, and effective form.
For example: Our Cleanse Products include things like raw papaya, raw avocado, activated charcoal and Hawaiian rain water.

Our products are formulated with efficacy in mind. Which means, we don’t make just anything. Each of our products has intended effects, and we formulate produce recipes with consideration for each ingredient’s benefits.
Our products are produced in small batches in Hawaii, which allows us to ensure the quality of every single item you use.
Made By Hand
AKA: real humans. Our team makes, bottles, and ships every single product. Notice that your soap is a slightly different shape than last time? It probably is. Slight imperfections and inconsistencies in products (especially when they were produced in different batches) is normal.
