Natural Product Buyer's Guide

At American Provenance, we only use all-natural ingredients, free from preservatives, synthetics, cruelty and words we can't pronounce, let alone know what they are for. The earth has produced some of the most amazing plants that have evolved alongside humans, so it's only fitting that their oils and butters can help protect, soften, sooth and restore our skin. A millennia of folk remedies and traditional applications, mixed with modern technology and knowledge can produce the world's best personal care products.
