faq une

We really appreciate all the wonderful feedback and (in one instance) unicorn dust directed our way since our debut!

It's been such a whirlwind and we're so delighted to be on this ride... we're soaking (pun not intended *wink*) everything in and taking truck loadsa mental photographs on the way. We also realize there has been similar curious questions regarding *bisou* bonbon and figured, "Eureka! Let's make an FAQ!" We'll be starting with the first 2 most popular Frequently Asked Questions and will continually add it along.

Merci beaucoup mon cherie for your awesome support! So *ahem* here we go:


Why do we love our body scrub?

First thing first, we use only Himalayan salt in our body scrub. We are proud to claim that everything in your scrub jar is 100% Himalayan salt and we do not mix it with other properties (e.g table salt etc). We use quality-grade carrier oils, butters and essential oils in our products. You will find that we try hard to squeeze in as much goodies as we can into a jar.. we’re talking manuka honey, shea butter, sweet almond oil, grape seed oil. We firmly believe good things shouldn’t come with a massive pricetag which is why we always strive to keep our prices competitive. It’s not about the money-money-money, we just want to make a kick-ass body scrub for you and ourselves... oh that and the world dance :)

Are your products organic?

According to Wikipedia: Organic farming is the form of agriculture that relies on techniques such as crop rotation, green manure, compost and biological pest control to maintain soil productivity and control pests on a farm. Organic farming excludes or strictly limits the use of manufactured fertilizers, pesticides (which include herbicides, insecticides and fungicides), plant growth regulators such as hormones, livestock antibiotics, food additives, and genetically modified organisms.

Basically a product can only be called organic if every single ingredient in the product has been obtained via the route as mentioned above. There are standards of regulations and certifications materials must adhere to in order to be deemed organic. As we’re unable to obtain organic certifications of ALL the ingredients used in our products we will not claim so. We are, though, 100% natural and free of artificial fragrance, preservatives and colouring.
