I take care to ensure that my products and practices are both beneficial for you and kind to the environment. I strive to keep my environmental footprint small and to treat Mother Earth with love and appreciation for the bounty she provides me with to create my products.
Raw materials: I am against Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and source raw materials used to handcraft my products that are certified organic, ethically wild-harvested and fair-trade whenever possible. Whenever you see the term "organic" on an ingredient list this means the raw material is certified organic from my suppliers.
Even with the most natural of ingredients, allergies and sensitivities are always possible. You are responsible to be aware of your own sensitivities when selecting and purchasing products. The complete ingredients for each product are listed in the product description and are labeled on product packaging.
As with any product applied to your body, it's always a good idea to complete a patch test on an inconspicuous area before using my products - especially if you have sensitive skin. Please contact me if you have any questions about my products ingredients so that I can help you find the right fit. Since I handcraft everything in small batches there is also a chance I may be able to substitute an ingredient or two for you.
Product testing: I am cruelty free and promise that I only test my products on willing friends and family, never on animals.
Packaging: Many products are sold in glass or PET plastic jars and bottles that can be re-purposed or recycled once their contents have been enjoyed, and some are even recycled themselves before they make their way to you!
I often reuse packing material to be kinder to the environment (the more times a box or packing paper is used the less trees that are killed) and many of my supplies (gift wrap, gift boxes, printing paper) are made from recycled material.
Weights & Measures
Many of my products are sold by weight, not volume, and this is indicated in each product's page.
Some items, such as bath salts and salves, may settle or change consistency during transport but can be corrected once they arrive (if you ever have issues or questions please contact us).
Sage & Sea Apothecary products are made from natural raw materials & may vary slightly accordingly. I reserve the right to make slight adjustments to my recipes according to the availability of high quality ingredients to ensure you receive the very best version of my products.
