That includes the ingredient sourcing process to ensure it’s ethical and sustainable, the specific ingredients we use and also our product packaging and processes. It takes a lot of work to become Certified Organic, which is why we’re so excited that we’re starting to roll out the first products with the COSMOS stamp of approval.

Why does it mean so much to us to be organic?

Going organic isn’t simply part of some generic checklist of green credentials. It’s an ecological imperative that’s focused on affecting real sustainable change for the future, not just in the here and now. In creating organic products, we stand and take action to protect our planet - through the elimination of pollutant fertilisers from our supply chains, the nourishment of healthier soil, and the creation of sanctuaries for endangered wildlife. Plant, insect and bird life is 50% more abundant on organic farms!

Our movement towards becoming organic is one of the largest steps we've taken in our pursuit of being as sustainable as possible. We believe in progression, not perfection, and this commitment marks some pretty monumental progress towards our products being the most ethical for our customers.
