While we’d like 100% of our ingredients to come from our rooftops or even locally, that is not currently possible in today’s sourcing environment. This will be a big goal of ours as we continue to grow literally and physically, but to hold us off until then, the rest of our ingredients used in our production are either USDA organic or Cosmos compliant.
We’re committed to being as transparent as possible and will disclose all of our additional ingredients, where they come from, what they’re made of, how they were also grown or processed to make sure you’re getting full visibility from seed and lab to bottle.

Our primary bottle and dropper components have been made to be reused.
Simply pull them apart once finished, wash and sanitize with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol and reuse! Our bottles are made of aluminum, the most recyclable material out there so you can also recycle or send back to us for us to reuse in our production cycle or to recycle.
Our cartons are 100% recyclable and biodegradable so please either recycle once opened or you can shred it and add it to your compost! Our shipping bags and wrap are also biodegradable and compostable!
In our product development, we reuse bottles that were sent for testing to fill with our next round of extracts. We also wash and disinfect all bottles and materials with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol to reuse when we’re testing out new formulations. Precision scales and calibrated filler systems are also used to limit the amount of ingredient waste that goes into the product formulation and production process.
In production, we do everything in our power to reduce waste in our supply chain. By keeping it short and streamlined, we disinfect and reuse bottles that were sent for testing to fill with our next round of extracts.
Water is a key ingredient that can make up to 90% of personal care products. We’re aiming to change the way the world thinks about, uses and transports water by continuing to bring our production process locally, distilling our own water and through product innovations that help to minimize water usage overall.
We use UPS’ carbon neutral shipping for our production runs and to ship our finished products to the end consumer. We’re also looking at strategic retail spaces in NY to avoid shipping altogether!
By growing our botanicals on our rooftops and reducing the supply chain, we’re reducing the carbon emissions that would have otherwise been used to farm, process and transport those extracts from halfway across the world.
