Why use skincare with organic ingredients?
Science has proven that our skin can absorb up to 64% of what we put on it. When something is organic, it is made without insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and fertilizers. Many of these are recognized as harmful to our entire eco-system. Organic farming techniques provide a safer, more sustainable environment for everyone. Additionally in 2002, the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry published a study that found higher antioxidant benefits in organic fruit than non-organic fruit. This research suggest that organic products deliver more nutrients then those grown with pesticides
How is it packaged?
C & The Moon Body Scrub is packaged in a glass jar with an easy to peel label so that you can simply repurpose the jar once you’re done. We ship our product in a non-bleached recyclable box secured by recyclable crinkle paper. Our hope is that you reuse everything from the jar to the box to join us in our effort to reduce waste.
How can I recycle the jar?
We encourage you not only to recycle but to first up-cycle your jar! Recycling is a great alternative to filling up landfills, but since it still takes a great deal of energy and resources to breakdown and recreate a recycled product, we encourage you to reutilize your jar at home.

Why use “Natural flavors” instead of “fragrance”?
In 1973, the Federal Fair Packaging and Labeling Act required companies to list cosmetic ingredients. However this legislation overtly exempts fragrances. This major loophole allows company’s to use the term fragrance to represents an undisclosed mixture of a variety of potentially harmful chemicals. When you read a label and see fragrance, you don’t know what you are getting. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), fragrance is the biggest cause of cosmetic contact dermatitis. It’s up there with nickel and poison ivy, which most people know how to avoid. That is why we chose to formulate C & The Moon Body Scrub with a scent safe enough to eat. You might have seen the term natural flavors used on food labels. That’s because they are commonly used it to preserve taste in packaged food. C & The Moon Scrub is not edible, but I can promise you, you will be tempted to eat it.
How will purchasing organic products help keep our water clean?
Beginning in May 1995, a network of environmental organizations, including the Environmental Working Group, began testing tap water for herbicides in cities across the United States' Corn Belt, and in Louisiana and Maryland. The results revealed widespread contamination of tap water with many different pesticides at levels that present serious health risks. Using products that are farmed organically helps prevent runoff contamination.
