Our Brands

We are continuously inspired by the companies whose products we sell.  The products that they offer tell the stories of who they are.  When we look at a product, we also look at where it comes from - Some of the things we look at:
  • The company as a whole – are they a company with a focus on natural products?
  • They must be animal cruelty free.
  • Their environmental impact – are they eco-friendly in their business practices?
  • The ingredients they use – they must have a high percentage of natural ingredients, the ingredients must be safe and the products we select must not have any ingredients on our Toxic 10 or The Nasty No-No's lists.
  • The quality of the products - how well they work.
  • Do they give back?
  • We like a company that shows their personality – is it fun, whimsical, strong, bold, friendly, empowering or endearing?
  • Their story – why they came to be.
