The quick answer is ‘no.’ Our reason for this decision takes a little explanation.
Currently, there are no organic certifying bodies in Singapore, and hence we must obtain certification from a certifying body overseas. Different countries have guidelines that are unfortunately not accepted everywhere, making it challenging to stick by any one set of guidelines. Finally, certification is expensive. One of our main goals is to make high-quality, holistic skincare accessible at an affordable price point, and this means making decisions that will help us keep our operating costs and in turn, our prices, manageable.
It’s for these reasons that we have decided to wait on pursuing organic certification for the time being, focusing instead on creating ethically sourced products using sustainable ingredients and eco-friendly packaging that are kind to consumers, animals and the planet.
It’s important to point out that our ingredients are wild-harvested by locals in the region where our products are produced. These are people with a deep understanding of the region’s ecology, with a long-standing knowledge of the wild, nutrient-rich herbs growing in their original soils without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. We source our ingredients from only the most sustainable sources and continuously give back to the community of farmers that harvest them. For now, this takes priority over pursuing organic certification.
