Ethically Sourced Ingredients/ Heavy Metal Testing
We source our ingredients from the earth. We make sure that the farmers we work with are ethical, sustainable, and holistic. Check out more of our sustainable sourcing practices here.
For example, the coconut crew we buy from works on an exclusive basis with farms near their production facilities throughout India, Indonesia, and the Philippines. It is their mission to ensure that mutually rewarding trade exists with their farmers and that their families, villages, and new generations share in the worldwide growth of the coconut industry.They have implemented socioeconomic programs to help educate villagers in giving back to their own communities, and they support their efforts by paying them more than fair prices for their products.
We test for BPA, dangerous heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, plastics, GMOs, gluten, mold, and many other contaminants. Check out this graphic explaining metals found in the soil and how they are different from dangerous heavy metals.
