Are Oribi Organics products non-toxic?
Everything we create is handmade in small batches and contains carefully sourced ingredients. Every organic, natural and botanic ingredient we use - oil, butter, essential oil, extract or wax - has been derived from nature and is selected for it's therapeutic benefits. We only use ingredients that have had the least amount of processing and do not contain harmful chemicals, solvents, toxins or synthetic preservatives.
Why does my Oribi Organics product look, feel or smell slightly different from the last one I bought?
It is important to note that since our products are handcrafted in small batches, variations in colour, scent, texture, viscosity and consistency do occur. This is because using naturally-based ingredients causes products to vary slightly from batch to batch. These variations do not negatively effect the beneficial properties of the products.
Does Oribi Organics use natural preservatives to prevent spoiling?
Yes, where necessary, we use gentle, natural (ECOCert approved) broad spectrum preservatives consisting of organic compounds in order to prevent microbial growth & spoiling, thereby ensuring the safety of the products.
Are Oribi Organics products tested on animals?
No, we are adamantly against animal testing! Once we have an idea for a product to add to our range, it is thoroughly tested on willing friends & family members.
