NO PLANT IS HARMED
Drops of Youth™ Eye Concentrate
Our best-selling Drops of Youth™ range contains sustainably extracted stem cells from Edelweiss and Criste Marine. To produce a continuous supply of stem cells we only use a small sample of the plant so no plant is harmed in the process!

We source our powerful, naturally purifying organic tea tree oil from the foothills of Mount Kenya. Our Community Trade partner, the Kenya Organic Oil Farmers' Association is made up of 380 small-scale family famers, and our trade provides a steady income.
