A PHILOSOPHY BEYOND ORGANIC
Our commitment towards purity of ingredients exceeds all the standards and conditions set down by every certification association. Whilst Live Native does not affiliate with an Organic Association, our suppliers are certified.
Live Native is an active member of the Vegan Society and against animal cruelty and testing.
All Live Native ingredients are blended in their raw state - meaning that they are either cold-pressed or squeezed directly from the living plants (like our aloe vera) which are truly free from chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and insecticides.
When choosing our living ingredient suppliers we always prefer to support Fairtrade. For instance, purchasing our virgin coconut oil from Sri Lanka has gone towards helping families rebuild their lives following the devastation by tsunami in 2004. Our rhassoul clay and Argan oil both come from Fairtrade co-operatives in Morocco, whilst our Shea butter comes from a Fairtrade women's co-op in Ghana.
We ensure when working with our suppliers that all Live Native raw ingredients are harvested responsibly. This includes our Glyceryl Caprilate which is derived from coconut oil and certified sustainable palm oil; our hand-harvested seaweed cut in such a way that encourages natural regrowth; and our Rhassoul Clay, hand mined from the Atlas mountains of Morocco. It is our greatest desire that natures bounty remains to be enjoyed for many generations to come.
