We believe in creating products that create beauty in the world and not destruction.  The largest impact we can make for creating a beautiful world is sourcing ingredients and manufacturing our products in alignment with our values below: 

  + sustainably grown *

  + ethically produced *

  + organically grown

  + vegan 

  + cruelty - free

 

 Sustainably Grown

Moroccan Argan and Moroccan Cactus Seed Oil are the base oils in all our formulas. Both of these plants are wild grown, renewable resources, and non- soil depleting. 

Both plants also serve the local population in several other ways by producing food products and building materials. Moroccan Cactus keeps wildlife at bay and prevents desertification by reducing erosion near the Sahara desert.

In addition, we produce little to no plastic waste in the production of our products, we use re-usable and recyclable glass bottles, and paper boxes in our packaging, reducing waste and our carbon footprint. 

Ethically Produced

Our Moroccan ingredients are sourced with the help of Moroccan skincare artisans that use the best traditional methods of ingredient production.  We love having Moroccan artisans as our partners, in doing so we  are contributing to the wealth of small businesses. In addition, we believe the best ingredients come from people that have intimate knowledge and day to day experience with the ingredients. One of our main suppliers has owned and operated a skincare brand for over 25 years. 

Our Moroccan ingredients are produced in female owned cooperatives; supporting the livelihood of women in the areas we source. We support female owned businesses whenever possible.

Organically Grown

All of our products are 99% + certified organic ingredients. The only non-organic ingredient we use currently is Vitamin E, that is not available in organic form. We add this to our formulations because it is a commonly used antioxidant that protects potency and longevity of our precious oils.

Vegan 

We simply don't use animal ingredients in our products. 

Cruelty - Free

We don't do any animal testing or support businesses or formulators that do. 

All of our products are made, packaged, and distributed in Portland, Oregon USA

Rarity Natural Beauty is a majority women owned company and women led

 

*while sustainability and ethical production data is not available on all the ingredients we source, we aim to increase transparency through continuing to source through small cooperatives and skincare artisans whenever possible. We are also actively seeking out the most sustainable and ethically produced ingredients for our products.
