Business Practices & Policies of -- Why shop with us?'s mission is to bring you the best and most effective scientifically formulated, organic and natural skin care products. We research our lines by personally testing a large sampling of products before adding the line to our roster. We make it a point to never jump on any band-wagon until we do our homework! We realize the dilemma faced by consumers with the plethora of too-good-to-be-true claims in our industry.

We strive to take the guess work out of your shopping experience as much as possible by strictly adhering to the following self-imposed standards of excellence:

We have a painstaking devotion to finding the highest quality and purest lines to offer you.

All ingredients in the lines we carry must be natural and in most cases are organically sourced.

NO synthetic fragrance or color. NO animal glycerin. NO mineral oils are used as moisture ingredients or main ingredients in our facial care products. NO Animal Testing. NO Sodium Lauryl Sulphate NO animal by-product ingredients. These are found in the vast majority of grocery, drug, department and even many "professional" skin care lines. These animal by-product ingredients are made in "rendering facilities" and include non-edible refuse from slaughterhouses as well as euthanized animals from shelters. What's more is that these ingredients are cheap fillers that have absolutely no nourishment for the skin. We take great pains to call each of our brands and discuss ingredients to ensure you are getting pure skin care products.

Our Recycling Policy : has a strict recycling and reusing shipping materials policy. We scour the beauty globe to find innovative, increasingly more natural and organically motivated, earth friendly, labor-friendly and science-backed manufacturers.

When you receive a package from, you can rest assured that we practice what we preach. We believe that true beauty is within and begins with love for the environment that bestows to us its riches in the form of the botanical resources found in the products we sell. We re-use and recycle as much as possible all of the packaging materials that come to us in the mail from our distributors and manufacturers. We only purchase biodegradable peanuts when we have a need to purchase them at all. If you receive styrofoam peanuts in one of our packages, it is because we are re-using the material from another source and ask that you do the same. We never purchase styrofoam of any sort. We make every effort to avoid heavily bleached cardboard boxes and paper. And we recycle all plastics, glass and paper used in our facility.
