Our ingredients are pure and fresh, and we want to keep them that way. We do not use artificial or synthetic preservatives. Instead, we rely on the naturally antibacterial and antifungal properties of several botanical oils to boost the shelf life of our products. As a result, they do expire with time, as nature intends. If you keep your products cool, dry, out of direct sunlight and always use clean hands (or a spoon) in the jar they will last a minimum of 6 months with a view to 12 or more. Our Fresh Masks mark the only exception to this rule. They should be used within 4 weeks of opening and within 8 weeks of the bottle date. Refrigeration will also help extend the shelf life of our natural products.
All of our skincare products are free from any toxic chemicals and additives, including parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals, artificial fragrances and colours. Our products are scented using only the very purest therapeutic grade essential oils. We would never use fragrance. Wherever possible we use Certified Organic ingredients.
The most disruptive and dangerous chemicals you should do your best to avoid putting anywhere near your body are: BHA & BHT, Coal tar dyes (p-phenylenediamine and colours listed as “CI” followed by a five digit number or by colour, e.g. “FD&C Blue No. 1” or “Blue 1”), DEA/MEA-related ingredients, Dibutyl phthalate, Formaldehyde-releasing preservatives (Look for DMDM hydantoin, diazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea, methenamine and quarternium-15), Parabens, PEGs, Parfum (a.k.a. fragrance), Petrolatum, ingredients ending in “-siloxane” or “-methicone), and Sodium laureth sulfate (SLS).
For more information about these chemicals and where they commonly found, read this great article by David Suzuki.
Sweet Living Company is proud to bring you an organic anti-aging skincare line that you can trust: no mysterious additives, nothing artificial, only the purest ingredients. We promise.
We take great care in selecting unadulterated ingredients that are ultra rich in naturally occurring antioxidants and minerals. We base our selections on several criteria: locality, purity and organic certification. As such, our ingredients come from several Canadian suppliers, beekeepers and ranchers.

Pure, high-vitamin oils are the best moisturizers and cleansers for skin, even oily and acne-prone skin. We only use oils that are non-comedogenic, meaning that they are not known to clog pores. Products containing synthetic oils, like mineral oil, do the opposite.
Our gorgeous Grapefruit & Lavender Luxury Cleanser thoroughly removes all the dirt, grime and excess oils that can encourage bacteria overgrowth. At the same time, it doesn’t strip the protective barrier that can lead to overproduction of sebum (breakouts). When you remove the cleansing product using the steam from a warm washcloth and water, all the oil is removed leaving the skin radiant and smooth. Read about Fatty-Face (Oil cleansing method).
Our smoothing anti-aging moisturizers and elixirs also use non-comedogenic ingredients, as well as essential and cold-pressed oils that are known to balance and detoxify oily skin.
Most of the essential oils we use are pregnancy-safe, however a woman’s skin can be extra sensitive to many substances during pregnancy. For that reason we recommend waiting for the second trimester before use. The Rosehip & Frankincense Facial Elixir, Pumpkin & Seaberry Ultra Elixir and the Neroli & Carrot Seed Beauty Cream do contain Carrot Seed essential oil. Carrot Seed essential oil is non-toxic but to err on the side of caution it may be advisable to avoid it during during pregnancy. Please consult your primary healthcare provider.
Our products are an excellent alternative for sensitive skin. We do not use harsh detergents, chemical preservatives or artificial fragrances, which are usually the “flare-up” culprits. The ingredients we use are extremely gentle on the skin, and many of our customers use Sweet Living Company organic anti-aging skincare products to calm Rosacea and Eczema. That being said, skin chemistry varies from person to person. If you have a history of sensitive skin or allergic reactions, please test any skincare product you purchase on a small area inside your wrist for 2-3 days prior to using.
The pure and natural ingredients we use are extremely gentle on the skin. Sweet Living Company organic anti-aging skincare products are so pure, they work for everyone in the family, from the newest babies to the greatest grannies. And yes, men can also use our anti-aging skincare!
The term Holistic (a.k.a. wholistic) is the philosophy and practice of healing that has to do with constantly keeping the whole body (meaning the physical body, the mind and the spirit) at the highest level of total wellness. This concept draws from the universal natural laws that state a whole is made up of the sum of all its parts, and that the parts cannot function properly if the whole is not functioning properly. Holistic skincare is more than just what you use on your skin. It starts with what’s inside. Organic, healthy whole foods, plenty of good quality water and frequent exercise are important factors in a good anti-aging skincare regimen. There are also external forces at play. When it comes to the ever-growing burden of unwanted chemicals in our food, water and air, and even sun damage, your skin might need a little help. To help unburden yourself from chemical overload, Sweet Living Company provides skincare products that use only the purest, healthiest ingredients that are inline with a holistic approach.
The term Paleo refers to a way of sustaining life that mimics how our ancestors would have lived. That means using the same resources today that they would have had access to in their day. Our Paleo-friendly skincare products contain the highest quality, nutrient-dense ingredients:
Holistically raised Grass-Fed Tallow, Skin Nourishing Botanical Oils, Naturally Sourced Earthen Clays and Raw Local Honey.
HEAVENS NO! We strongly oppose GMO agriculture.
All of our facial serums and elixirs are completely free of animal ingredients. If you do not oppose the use of honey, you will also be able to use our Raw Face Masks and Honey Polish. The majority of our organic botanical oils and butters are Certified Vegan.
No. We never have and never will. All our products are tested on friends, not animals.
Steam Distillation: Hot steam helps to release aromatic molecules from the plant material by forcing open the pockets in which the oils are kept. The steam, which then contains the essential oil, is condensed as it passes through a cooling system. This forms a liquid from which the essential oil and water is then separated.
Cold-Pressed: This is where the oil is extracted by first grinding nuts, seeds or plant parts into a paste. Then an oil stone or other mechanical tool is used to press the paste which forces the oil to separate out.
Sweet Living Company is a family-run business and for that reason we have not endeavoured to obtain organic certification for our products at this time. That being said, our products do contain a high percentage of Certified Organic ingredients. Where Certified Organic ingredients are not possible to obtain, we source materials that are Certified Kosher, Certified Vegan, Fairtrade, Wild-crafted, Unrefined, and/or locally raised, grown and/or produced. Simply put, we buy the best quality ingredients we can get our hands on.
Yes, they absolutely are! We use old photos from our family archives for the Sweet Living Company labels and other marketing marketing materials. No stock images here 🙂
