Alphabetical guide


Finding out what’s beneficial, and what potentially could cause harm can be a hassle when all ingredients have impossible Latin names. We believe it has to be easy to understand what the ingredients are and where they come from. That’s why we have put together an easy-to-read guide of all the ingredients in our products.
