Our Stewardship Model
A naturally healthy life doesn't just happen. It comes from making thoughtful decisions on what to do—and what not to do. That's how we approach our ingredient selection when creating safe and effective products for you. We work very hard to find and combine the best naturally sourced and naturally derived ingredients, guided by a process we call our Stewardship Model.
Every ingredient we use goes through our Stewardship review process, which directs our standards for creating natural, safe, and effective products. Packaging choices are also guided by the Stewardship Model as we are always striving to improve sustainability.
As part of our commitment to continuous improvement we have updated our Stewardship Model to make it easier to understand. Rest assured that the underlying standards and process have not changed, but we wanted language that more directly spoke to the two areas the Stewardship Model guides: Formula and Packaging. As always, we carefully consider your feedback! We welcome your input on how we can do more good for you, your community and our planet. Let us know what you think of the updated language!
