HERO INGREDIENT SERIES
Sandalwood is a high-risk ingredient due to the devasting impact of overharvesting. Our sandalwood comes from a local Australian Aboriginal co-op who sustainably farm, planting 30% more trees than they harvest every year with 16 years of mixed generation trees currently growing. Further, the farm relies on green energy practices and 75% of the water used is recycle but the best part? Goats are used (ethically, of course!) to maintain the weeds and overgrowth on the plantation to ensure it can remain pesticide free.
Our orange oil is extracted from orange peel. To ensureour products are sustainably made with a zero-waste mentality, our supplier upcycles peel from the orange juice trade to make our orange oil. This means that 100% of the fruit is used in a zero-waste production line. Further continuing our strive for sustainability, our orange oil is made using clean energy and water efficient production processes.
Our supplier uses a new patented distillation process that is cleaner and generates less water and scent molecule waste than standard processes. This results in the clove notes in our scents being more concentrated, sophisticated, and unique. Additionally, any water waste that is generated during the distillation process is cleaned and returned to the environment.
