Just a word of caution
We do our best to stay informed and provide as much transparency as possible in regards to the ingredients in our collection. However, we understand that there may be trace ingredients and that natural does not always mean harmless. So, for individuals who are prone to allergic reactions or have highly sensitive skin, pregnant or nursing mothers, and anyone on any medication or who have pre-existing medical conditions, we would suggest consulting a healthcare professional or dermatologist prior to purchase and/or application.
In general, if there is any doubt, we would advise doing a small patch test either in store or from samples prior to purchasing and always take caution when mixing multiple products from different brands.
