OUR HERITAGE
 
HAPPY 25th BIRTHDAY TO US! 
 
Since 1995 we have harnessed the power of nature in everything that we do. From day one – we were the exception, the rule breakers. Unlike others, we believed in the power of plants, and that plant-based products shouldn’t cost the earth. That’s why we have been pushing ourselves for 25 years, to do better. To be better. Unearthing the most powerful extracts, and creating innovative, natural solutions that really work.
From the first mass natural children’s ranges, to the first organic biodegradable wipes, we strive to always stay one step ahead. For you, your skin and the world around us all.
