Established in 1996 by Joseph Gonyeau and Wendy Greer. The concept was simple. First, produce 100% botanical, long lasting olive oil soaps. Second, create a 100% natural healing and moisturizing line of skin care products not found anywhere else in the world. Third, grow as many herbs as possible to keep the products local and affordable. The concept has not changed. We manufacture our olive oil based skin care in small batches using the finest unrefined ingredients. We grow own herbs and flowers and infuse them into olive oil. This allows the healing quality of the plants to be slowly extracted. The benefits to your skin can be felt after a few weeks. Some of the ingredients you won't find in our products are: Parabens, alcohol, SLS, Dyes, or any other manmade chemicals that have been proven to be harmful to the human body and the environment. These guidelines have helped us create a truly unique line of skin care for the whole family.
