1- Exporting Cannabis products from Colombia during a pandemic: (filed under the ‘are we really doing this?’ book for crazy people.) We won’t bore you with the details- suffice to say it’s been an epic journey. But we stayed the course even as Colombia shut its borders completely for six months, because we have 100% belief in our product. And the positive thing is that precisely because we had to jump through many, many, many legal, professional and industry standard hoops, this means that what it says on our packaging is what will be going on to your skin and nothing else.
2- Finding the right product: We tried myriad products from almost every continent, so it was serendipitous that our key base ingredient was the Colombian product we found to be the best in terms of efficacy and consistency. We immediately got to work with the incredible team in Medellín on our own unique formula, using the best plant based ingredients for maximum results.
3- Quality Control: We provide accurate product information by using an INDEPENDENT third party in the UK to verify our product, from ingredient checking through to testing and registration. More details can be found here, and our ‘Certifications & Memberships’ link in our footer.
4- Ensuring consistent quality: This year in particular has been particularly difficult for many businesses. With that in mind we know that any products we develop must be done so in collaboration with suppliers who have stability and heritage, and who can continue to deliver our products to the standards we have established. Not just from ourselves, but also following the Good Practice guidelines from the UK and European Cosmetic Association and the Cannabis Trades Association, both responsible for industry standards and consumer protection.
5- Fun Fact: The warming cream and cooling gel pack colours were inspired by Colombian sunsets in ‘La Guajira,’ a breathtaking desert area on the north east peninsula, and the stunning azure waters of the Caribbean coast.
