My handcrafted products are free of parabens, paraffins, petroleum, phthalates, propylene glycol, synthetic colors and other harmful chemicals. They are made without artificial preservatives. I never use unnecessary fillers. My products are concentrated because every ingredient serves an important purpose. 

I use all organic ingredients with the exception of a few of our essential oils. Some of our oils are not certified organic, but do go through a rigorous process that certifies there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients or harmful contaminants in the oils. My non-organic essential oils are subject to organoleptic testing, microbial testing, gas chromatography & mass spectrometry analysis.  The purity of an essential oil is its most important characteristic and we take all factors into account when choosing them. 

Most of my carrier oils are unrefined and cold pressed. Cold pressed means the oils are not extracted with heat more than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. 

I take pride in my products and make it a priority to ensure I am offering you the best from nature. 

My products are never tested on animals, nor do I condone such testing, because my team and I believe it both unnecessary and unproven to make skincare safer for my customers. Instead of testing Skin Balm Apothecary on animals, we test all products extensively on ourselves and our amazing team.  I never sell anything until it has been tested, tried and loved by many.

Hugs & Blessings!
