Why Aren’t Our Products Made From 100% Natural Ingredients?

Other than our favorite potent, natural ingredients – which generally consist of over 96% of our formulas – we take steps to ensure optimum effectiveness and stability. This means that we formulate our products to ensure long lasting effects, as well as safety. We round out our formulas with safe ingredients that ensure our products are as effective when they reach your hands as they were when they were first bottled and sealed – no one wants a spoiled shampoo! Additionally, as some natural fragrances can be irritable and carry dangerous allergens, we make sure to provide you with healthy, safe and delicious-scented products. Lastly, our products are naturally sourced from carefully scrutinized locations. We make sure not to strip and deplete our sources in their natural state – sustainability is always a priority.

Aren’t Raw, Natural Ingredients Always The Answer?

At Maple Holistics, our goal is to provide you with safe, sustainable, cruelty-free and effective products. No one can deny the power and benefits that can be derived from the gifts of mother earth. However, sometimes these raw ingredients do need some love and stability! We may process some of our ingredients or formulas on a limited level in order to ensure that you receive a stable, safe and effective product that meets your expectations and keeps you safe.
