Our list of ingredients is 100% transparent and 100% waterless.

The following ingredients information addresses two categories: attributes and benefits & properties. Attributes listed for each ingredient are specific and applicable to the ingredient we are using in the products offered. Benefits & Properties are intended to provide additional supporting information regarding how that ingredient benefits your skin, body and/or simply general education.

All Good & Simple face and body balms are 100% waterless -- which means no water in our formulas.

Our balms are concentrated, waterless (anhydrous) and make an excellent moisturizer for the skin. Composed primarily of hard fats and oils, balm are free of fillers -- including preservatives and emulsifiers. In fact, on average a balm is 2x more concentrated than its lotion equivalent. If you remove the preservatives, water and emulsifiers from an 8 oz. bottle of lotion, you are left with about 4 oz. of product.

As we select ingredients, the intent is always to stay as "clean" and close-to-nature as possible while creating products that support optimal health. Our capsule line is 100% handcrafted, handpoured and created in micro-batches in Michigan with local, domestic, and globally sourced ingredients.
