Before any certifications existed, the paragon of excellence for collecting ingredients in the personal care industry was Wildcrafting. This premium standard involves harvesting various aspects of a plant- including the flowers, seeds, fruits, roots and leaves- at their peak of potency, with little or no interference to their "wild", or natural habitat for culinary or therapeutic uses.
These ingredients exist in their natural surroundings as part of an uncultivated ecosystem that is non-GMO and free of pesticides, herbicides, detergents and every other harmful chemical; they are neither farmed nor sprayed with any kind of pesticide. Therefore, the plants retain all of their original attributes that may be lost or altered through cultivation techniques.
Altogether Lovely Botanicals is dedicated to using high-quality botanicals that are of maximum benefit to your skin. That is why we source our Wildcrafted African Botanicals from Ghana, West Africa, directly working with local and carefully auditing our producers to ensure that they continue to meet our standards of purity and sustainability,which includes paying local workers fair wages.
