Ingredients Standards

Australian Certified Organic (ACO) herbs and ingredients are sourced wherever possible. Currently 80-90% of the ingredients used are ACO. This means they’ve been grown without the use of synthetic or toxic substances for a three-year minimum period - and contain no added artificial colours or fragrances. The term  ‘Certified Organic’ is overseen by a number of internationally recognised bodies, and suppliers are audited each year to guarantee organic integrity and strict certification standards.

The other herb sources are wildcrafted, imported and supplied through a highly-regarded Australian herb company. All wildcrafted herbs are harvested from a chemical free area.

All ingredients are sourced from plant or mineral origins. These include liquid herbal extracts (tinctures), fruit liquid extracts (glycerine-based), solar method infused herbal oils, plant seed butters, plant seed oils and pure essential oils.    

Mineral oils are colourless, odourless oils made as a by-product of the distillation of petroleum to produce gasoline. They are avoided due to potential toxin contamination, pore clogging traits and lack of skin nutrients or true hydration properties. 

All base oils used are cold pressed e.g coconut, olive oil. The cold pressed extraction method ensure the oils retain all their aroma and nutritional value. The seeds are crushed and pressed in order to extract the oil in the most natural way.

All ingredients sourced to make the BodyWise BirthWise products are from a company that is accredited by Choose Cruelty Free Ltd as a cruelty-free company.               
The beeswax used is 100% pure, totally unrefined and Australian Certified Organic. Bee Welfare: The organic standard prohibits wing clipping of the queen as a method of preventing swarming. Hygiene and hive management is also of critical importance to prevent disease and pests. Wax is only obtained from cappings removed from honeycomb rather than recycling of frames.
