Following time spent at Boom festival 2016 and meeting many different people under the learning tree workshops, we all discussed different natural solutions for body/skin care made from natural ingredients with solutions coming from different cultures. We then decided that we could use my previous chemical knowledge to create the same types of products, but with purely natural ingredients direct from plants." (Andrew & Lisa Crowe)
Wherever possible we work directly with farmers or their co-operatives. We buy Fair Trade. All of our ingredients must also be fully certified organic. The purest and highest quality we can find. We demand all products be cruelty free, which means there has been no animal cruelty or child labour involved in farming or production.
We support Kalaweit France directly through our affiliation program with 10% of each product sale. Kalaweit France works with gibbons, but our funds go toward protecting rainforests from exploitation and palm oil plantations.
Indirectly, fees are paid to POFCAP for our Palm Oil Free certification, which goes to various charities/NGO’s that work with Orangutans and other animals displaced by palm oil production.
We are strong activists against plastic and palm oil – we focus these activities through our social media channels and help raise awareness on hidden palm oil in products.
Our lab is insulated and uses only LED systems for lighting. We use minimal amounts of water as this is not a core element of our products.
In 2021 we will be installing our solar hot water system (already purchased) and we aim to install solar electricity for our entire operation." (Andrew & Lisa Crowe)
