how do you...hygge? 

Hygge is originally a Danish concept of infusing your life with simply anything that makes you feel happy.

As we continue to trek through snowy cold winter months we can relate to seeking out cozy comforts...
be it  warming our hands around a hot cup of tea, settling down to knit a pair of wooly socks or maybe wrapping ourselves in a snuggly blanket.

How do you take time to celebrate those cozy peaceful moments?
How do you hygge?



news - just beautiful campaign! 

We are proud to announce that we have been accepted as a member of the Just Beautiful Campaign created by Environmental Defence.  

Environmental Defence is a Canadian organization committed to inspiring government, business and people to become greener and healthier.

They began the Just Beautiful Campaign to help consumers purchase safer products for their families.
Unfortunately, many companies continue to use toxics chemicals in their manufacturing.
That is why it is so important to know and avoid harmful ingredients in the products we put in and on our bodies.

To be accepted as a member of the Just Beautiful Campaign we took a pledge to ensure that our labels will always disclose every ingredient found in your product;
we will only make or sell personal care items that do not contain any of Environmental Defence’s Toxic Ten;
and we will continue to go above and beyond in transparency and in producing healthier safe choices for our customers. 

We would like to thank Environmental Defence for their outstanding efforts in protecting and educationing consumers.

a researcher's start 


Recently we have noticed that there is a lot of claims that the products we use daily can have links to serious health effects, for example, this baby powder lawsuit.  Taking real concerns and mixing them with conflicting commercialism, marketing delusions and down right mis-information it can lead to some very confusing options out there. 

Through this blog, we will try and weed through the world of marketing and myth so you can become more informed and knowledgable. Whether you are buying a face lotion or a household cleaner...we hope to bring you information that will help you choose the right product for you.

The world is complicated enough. Our skincare products shouldn’t be.
