About Our Ingredients
Erbaviva goes through great lengths to source the highest quality ingredients it is possible. Our organic essential oils are therapeutic grade sourced from around the world. We import our own oils from the finest growers and distillers. Often our suppliers are small farms who have worked for generations to make the optimum essential oil they can make. They opt to make smaller quantities of oil and charge more for it, so we pay a high price to obtain superlative quality oils. It is worth it though, both for their therapeutic quality as well as their superior aroma.
For our other raw ingredients, we source the highest quality organic vegetable oils, which are kept fresh and pure under optimum conditions. We use natural and organic antioxidants in the oils to preserve their shelf life. We also bottle the oils with nitrogen ( a natural and inert gas) which keeps the oils in a preserved time capsule until opened. Our creams use a completely natural emulsifier which though it has a long and complicated name (Cetearyl Wheat Bran Glycosides and Cetearyl Alcohol) is a completely natural extract from wheat bran. The Cetearyl Alcohol is not an alcohol as we know it, it is in fact a natural fatty acid that is emollient to the skin; again derived from wheat bran. Our creams are both light and natural and offer a very pure and high quality example of what can be produced naturally. Our sunscreen is probably the lightest, most effective natural sunscreen available offering full spectrum protection against the sun’s harmful rays. You can smell the purity in all of our creams!
We are proud to use shampoos that are completely free from all harsh detergents ( no Sodium Laurel Sulphates, or anything remotely related to it). Our main (natural) detergent is Olivoil Glutinate which is derived naturally from olive oil. We use a secondary mild detergent called Decyl Polyglucose (naturally extracted from corn). We boost the foaminess of our shampoos and body washes with Quilaja extract, a completely natural extract from the Chilean Soap Bark Tree. We feel confident our shampoos, soaps and body washes are the most natural and mildest you will find.
All of our other raw ingredients, whether they be organic oats, organic milk , organic lavender flowers, organic echinacea etc., all have a remarkable story connected to how and where they are sourced. All in all, you can feel completely confident that we have brought some of nature’s best ingredients together to make Erbaviva the trustworthy brand it has become for you to enjoy the many benefits.
