Gee Natural Skincare uses only vegan, fair trade or organic botanical ingredients and raw materials. Gee products are proud to be free of all fillers, synthetics, and chemically laden preservatives. The therapeutic grade essential oils we use are steam distilled. The floral waters are actual hydrosols, which are by-products of the essential oil steam distillation process. The carrier oils used are usually organic, cold-pressed, extra-virgin and unrefined, with the exception of a few. The raw nut butters we use are unrefined for their ultimate moisturizing benefits. All ingredients and products are tested on Gisèle and a group of willing participants.
