Biospherically Correct Info
To what extent does the cultivation and extraction of the raw materials necessary to produce this product; enhance the diversity of life, that is, aids the greaterbiospheric servicesof the planet, the localised eco systems (species and habitat protection) and preserves the associated knowledge, customs and prosperity of the indigenous cultures of the territory?Biospherically Correct
The ingredients in our skin care are all natural, some organic and some wild harvested. However, we prize most of all the unique ingredients: acai, camu camu, copibia and tamanu oil which are authenticially organic and wild harvested.
- Acai harvest provides villagers with income. Wages are higher for harvesting acai than in other industries such as logging. Families who harvest acai keep some of the fruit to eat or use as garden fertilizer.
- Acai palms are preserved. It is more beneficial to harvest the berries than to cut the palm down.
- Approximately 30% of fruit harvested falls to the ground or is eaten by birds or wild animals, protecting diversity.
- In Peru, camu camu seedlings are available free of charge from the government to native peoples for them to plant.
- We pay a premium for our Amazonian ingredients so that we may support communities through the Amazon Friendly initiative.
Our coconut oil comes from a model farm in Fiji that utilizes natural resources to create work for local people. We do not use palm oil.
Summary: Our skin care range is respectful of the diversity of life, honouring nature and the valuing of indigenous culture.
How positive for the individual, society and the environment is the function of the product in its final form?Biospherically Correct
It is deeply satisfying to create, use and then share products which have come from Mother Nature's basket, celebrating our connection with all living things. Ingredients are chosen for their nutritional and anti aging properties, as well for their fragrance and performance as gentle cleansers and moisturisers e.g, our body wash contains an incredible 10% of honey. Honey is known for its ability to fight infection, and boosting immunity. The two super fruits, acai and camu camu, used in our skin care items are unsurpassed in terms of anti-oxidant content and have unmatched healing and nutritional properties.
The skin preparations are made by herbalists with an intimate knowledge of the plant world, ensuring the very best outcomes in terms of quality and product integrity. Soaps are also are hand made and coconut oil cold pressed to retain natural properties.
The words love, forgiveness, compassion, tolerance and integrity are meaningfully printed on our labels to inspire and promote a sense of connection with others. Positive function is further enhanced by proceeds going towards Vision for Humanity Charitable Trust initiatives. Marketing and product sales are conducted via our website, keeping advertising and retail over heads to a minimum.

Do the ingredients in the product meet the criteria for being 'green ingredients', that is, organic and/or natural, high yielding and sustainable?Biospherically Correct
All of the ingredients in our skin care products are natural - i.e. non synthesisied and/or organic. Our nutrient rich ingredients have undergone minimal processing and resonate well within the body. We use a unique natural preservative system combining the anti aging, healing and preservative properties of citrus bioflavanoids and Totarol, extracted from old recycled bark from the NZ native totara tree.
Acai, our premier ingredient throughout the range, is wild harvested from the Amazon Rain Forest and cold pressed to yield the purest oil. It is a high yield, sustainable ingredient as the acai palm is not damaged during harvest and the seeds are used to propagate new trees. Our supplier of acai and camu camu guarantees that no harmful chemicals are employed in any processing of their products, and all fruits are sustainably (often 'wild') harvested and, where possible, certified organic.
Virtually all of our skin care is crafted in New Zealand on a specialised herbal farm where essential oils are used for scents, colours are derived from nature and herbal extracts are used for enhancing health and well-being. Many of these are supplied directly from our manufacturiers own garden. We use 100% pure New Zealand sea salt in our exfoliant, while our pure coconut oil is made naturally in Fiji.
