Natural Skin Care Ingredients and Descriptions

When I formulate I set some very rigid standards. The products contain organic ingredients as available. If I would not use it on myself or my children, I will not use it in my products. All herbs are either certified organic or wild crafted (harvested in their wild natural state). One of my most enjoyable activities every year is the annual harvesting I go through to obtain fresh ingredients. Life Root  products are designed to be hypoallergenic and cruelty free.

The following information is not intended as medical advice, does not replace medical treatmeant and  is solely educational.

When we manufacture your private label order, you may add a small amount of any ingredient to our stock product formulas for no additional charge (with the exception of expensive essential oils where additional fees will be charged).  Any changes you make will automatically become your exclusive formula.

Note:  some ingredients may not blend into the formula; we will consult you on your choices
