Even when it comes to our 100% natural ingredients some of us can still find ourselves meticulously reading labels in search of a pesky ingredient we find ourselves allergic or sensitive too.

In an effort to make the whole thing less complicated we’ve created a few collections that contain common allergens so you know which ones to avoid and which ones you can use without worrying.

Just because you can’t eat it doesn’t mean you can’t put it on your skin.

Say what?? Many ingredients, for instance, gluten, can’t be absorbed through your skin so although you may be allergic to consuming it unless you put it around your mouth that gluten ain’t getting in. That being said, some people develop a skin reaction separate from their internal allergy known as contact dermatitis.

Collections: 

Our products that contain Wheat Germ and Oats.

At this time, none of our other products contain gluten.The Black Oats in our day cream is tested to not contain gluten. For more information about gluten and allergies check out our FAQ page

Products containing Almond Oil:

Almond Oil is the only nut oil we use in the warehouse and we're working on slowly removing it from existing formulas and formulating new products without the inclusion of Almond Oil. 

Products containing Shea Butter:

There are no current reports of allergic reactions owing to the topical use of Shea Butter because it does not contain allergen binding proteins. For more information about Shea check our Shea FAQ! 

Coconut-free products:

Our Unscented Products

Soy - Sourced 

  • Our Glycerin is sourced from filtered non-GMO Soy, Maize and Mustard.
  • Our Vitamin E is sourced from non-GMO Soy.

Great news for those who have soy allergies - the soy protein is removed during processing and these ingredients are unlikely to bother you. 

If you're concerned about a particular product it's always best to spot test first! 

Because our workshop is not an allergy-free zone, although we do our very best, we cannot guarantee that there hasn't been any cross contamination. 

If you have any other common allergies you would like us to make a collection for let us know!
