We believe that the medicines and supplements you use and the products you put on your body are just as important as the foods you eat. The products on our shelves are made from renewable resources found in nature, and all products are deemed safe by the EWG. Synthetic ingredients are only used when safe and when there is no readily available natural alternative ingredient. Our supplement brands are reviewed for quality, purity, and effectiveness, and all proprietary blends are vetted by our KWF purchasing team. Our goal is to provide as many non-gmo, organic, whole-food choices as possible.
None of our health and beauty products are tested on animals, because we don’t think that animals should suffer to bring us a better eye cream. We encourage our suppliers to get the international “leaping bunny” certification from Cruelty Free International.
