Empower Independence, Transparency and Sustainability

Women entrepreneurs receive 1.7% of all funding and when they do, it is often at the expense of their intentions and those behind the products they have created.

The old rules keep the status quo - the power remains in the hands of those that have and are making decisions about ingredients that disempower our lives, our health and our world .  it's time to soar above, dig beneath, and burst through the walls of patriarchy by funding a future worth working for.

To quote from a Warrior Gay. Black, Poet Laureate, Intersectional feminist Audre Lorde. "The masters tools will never dismantle the masters house" 

In 2008 when I created my first line my thought was that clean beauty was imagined to save lives ..  I closed that company after a lost my home due to a fatal mistake of trusting the wrong investor,  I am not about to stop now.

I have no idea if this idea is even a ‘thing’ but I know we are doing our best and we can't OutPR the 'clean at blah blah blah"  but if you don't believe you can change something - you never will. 

PFAS are like phthalates on steroids! They are dangerous not only because they can make their way into our blood stream but also because unfinished product, (or even the containers themselves) can leach toxins into our earth, our water, our plants and our wildlife – for up to 10 years!  If you get the opportunity watch the film "Dark Waters"

We want our customers to be aware of what they are buying  and so we publish the results of the tests and we will not restock anything testing higher than <20ppm  as it is most likely incidental and at this point almost impossible to control BUT we are always aiming for Non Detect < 10 ppm - the best you can test for. 

We have been working for almost 2 years testing products and ingredients, and also  working with BCIT (British Columbia Institute of Technology) on developing accessible and standard testing protocols here in Canada etc.

And we have shed a lot of tears throughout our journey and we have spent many sleepless nights worrying about what to do because …

Once you know … you know.

All funds will be used for testing - not for formulating or manufacturing or operations of any kind .

ALL funds will go directly to the cost of the lab tests and shipping the products to the lab - that 's it  and we will have quarterly updates for donators. 

Also please note these donations are NOT TAX DEDUCTIBLE - for either of us - different countries and all :)  Also bit of a weird one as the price is in USD on the site so for Canadians the amounts result in 10=13   25= 33. and 50 = 66 ( approximately and dependent on the Canadian/Us exchange )
