ETHICS

Our passion for perfume excellence joins active environmental and community care.  Our perfume concentrates are composed of the highest quality natural ingredients, using numerous botanical essences.  With up to 20 botanical oils in each perfume, we use only those that are sustainably and ethically managed.  We have full supply chain accountability.

In three of our perfumes, our 100 per cent natural Parfums are Ecocert® certified (www.ecocert.com).  In one of our perfumes, for reasons of sustainability and design, our Parfum concentrates are 50 per cent natural.  Naturals are under significant and growing global pressure, and, in some cases, synthetics are more ecologically sound.

All our Parfum ingredients meet rigorous EU standards.  Our New Zealand native plant extracts – sustainably sourced and harvested – are cosmetic-grade, prepared with purified water, organic vegetable glycerine (no palm oil), without preservatives.  Protecting the skin-friendly qualities of our natural botanicals, our perfume ingredients are bathed in locally sourced pure grain alcohol (no solvents) and distilled New Zealand water.  All ingredients and our finished perfumes are created without animal testing.

Our packaging card is derived from sustainably managed forests, and our chosen packaging supplier holds Enviro-Mark Gold accreditation.  Our folded boxes are printed with vegetable-oil-based inks and use minimal glue.  Like our glass bottles, they are fully recyclable.

Underlying all is intense love for Aotearoa New Zealand.   Everything able to be done here, is done here.  Throughout, we seek new standards in producer responsibility in our sector.
