WE LIST ALL OF OUR INGREDIENTS
Currently in Australia there is no law that manufacturers of cosmetic & cleaning products must disclose their full list of ingredients.
At the Botanical Life Co. we disclose all of our ingredients. We firmly believe that people should know exactly what is in their products so that they can make informed decisions about what they are exposing themselves & their families to.
ASSESSED AGAINST INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS
Our ingredients are assessed for their health & safety against research undertaken by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) https://www.ewg.org/ The EWG is the peak international research body that provides ratings on product ingredients to indicate their level of concern to human health & the environment.
