Our Banned Ingredient List


As a company founded by mothers, we are very particular about what we feed to our families. Below, you will see a list of banned ingredients, that we refuse to carry in our webstore. Which means of course, that any products that contain these ingredients (aka chemicals) are also banned from our webstore.

We wouldn't feed you anything we wouldn't feed to our own families.
