Angela says, "I have a questions regarding your sunscreen. The ingredients look wonderful! But is the Vitamin E GMO-free?"

Dear Angela,
We use only 100% pure food grade ingredients for all our formulations. 
I feel happy you asked this question because it means you are aware of what ingredients go into your skin care.
We use only non GMO ingredients supplied by our reputable companies. I personally research each company that supplies us with ingredients.  We have had long term relationships with them so any time a new ingredient comes on the market, they keep us posted.
