The wooden tubs are manufactured from Finnish Pine heart wood. No chemicals are used in the process as the tree is naturally antibacterial. Our supplier is PECF certified, and the wood we use is also certified. This way we can trace the material we use all the way to where the tree was planted.
We only use Finnish wood. The highest quality wood comes from the harsh climates of Finland, where the tree grows slowly, making it a durable and dense material. Pine is the most common tree variety in Finland, and it has a very sustainable population.
Take a good care of your product. It is part of nature and behaves as such. Each tub is unique, and it has a distinct wood grain pattern. If the tub is exposed to extreme temperatures of fluctuating moisture, it may react. Wood has a natural ability to absorb some moisture, and it needs time to acclimate to new surroundings. When in a new environment, it can take a bit of time before it can fine-tune its moisture levels, and the lid might feel loose or tight to begin with. Store in a dry place, but don´t worry if you accidentally forget it somewhere damp. Once you bring it back to a dry environment, you can recycle the tub. You can burn it, compost it, or take it to a wood recycling centre. The tub is made entirely of wood and it won´t burden the environment.
We want to decrease global consumption of plastics, and we felt it was our duty to create a fully recyclable line of natural cosmetics. None of the packaging materials use plastic. When we use nature's offerings, we also want to offer love and compassion back in exchange. We are committed to protect the forests. We oppose clear-cutting forests, and stand up for animal rights.
