Our Natural Ingredients

When we say natural skincare, we mean natural skincare! Everything in our products is considered totally safe and non-toxic, as listed in Cosing, the European Commission database with information on cosmetic ingredients contained in the Cosmetics Directive. 

The non vegan-friendly ingredients that we use are beeswax (in our lip balms, Wintergreen balm and Yummibummi nappy cream) and full cream organic milk (in some soaps).

Ingredients are listed next to each product on the product pages. Possible allergens naturally occurring in essential oils are listed at the bottom of the product information.
