our process

We believe beauty is the result of health and wellness. We source and vet the highest quality ingredients — always hyperclean, non-toxic, safe, and as organic as possible. We make no compromises in our ingredient safety standards so that you can trust that these products are and will always be 100% good for you. We are committed to creating products that not only feel luxurious but yield effective results with long-lasting benefits.


While this is only a small, small fraction of our YES/NO list, we want to share our ingredient safety standards with you. There are thousands of NOs we adhere to, and if you're ever curious about an ingredient on one of our labels, please email us directly at

Here, we'll expand on some of the key standards for our ingredient sourcing and product development:

Safe Preservatives maintain shelf life, are not irritating to the skin, and are safe to use daily. We use food-grade Citric Acid, Propanediol (derived from non-GMO corn), Sodium Anisate (derived from fennel), and Potassium Sorbate (naturally occurs in berries).

Effective Active-Ingredient Usage Rates Our expert chemists work to make sure that our actives are potent enough in our formulas to actually work.

Clinically Tested (ongoing) and Consumer Proven to be safe, non-toxic, and non-irritating.

Born From the Spa Throughout every phase of product development, our highly-trained and passionate estheticians provide a wealth of treatment and product-based knowledge as well as hands-on experience. Their real-time feedback informs our process of creating non-toxic, effective products that are safe for both our employees and our clients to use daily.

No Filler Ingredients means we don’t fill our products with water to dilute efficacy. We use nourishing base ingredients such as Vitamin E-rich carrier oils (Baobab Seed, Carrot Seed, Goji Seed), Rose Distillate,  Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, and Sorbitan Olivate (moisturizing olive oil-derived base).

Key Specialty Ingredients deliver effective results safely. We use Apple Fruit Stem Cell Extracts, Prickly Pear Seed Oil and Extract, Sugarcane Extract (natural form of Glycolic Acid AHA), Methyl Sulphonyl Methane (“nature’s beauty mineral”), Pea Peptides, and more.
