SoulTree is the result of a journey that began in 2002. A journey deep into the Himalayas where we discovered communities still living in communion with nature using its goodness and giving back to it in equal measure. This harmonious give and take had an honesty we never quite found in the cities. Natural products that truly benefited people —from those who cultivated and collected ingredients for the products to people who used the products—and the environment were scarce, and the few that promised this benefit didn’t always deliver the goods.
We hope to change this. Everything we do—from ensuring that no plant is ever plucked clean of flowers or fruits, to insisting that farmers are given fair prices for the ingredients we source from, to banishing harmful chemicals from our products—is built on respect for nature and for people. On this you have our word as well as certifications from regulatory authorities (BDIH Germany certifies all our products as Natural) earned over the years.
Ours is an affirmation to bring you nature’s goodness with honesty and responsibility. So, when you pick up a SoulTree product you buy into a promise that few offer today.
The SoulTree Promise
All products as certified ‘Natural’
When we say our products are natural it means they have more than just a few natural ingredients. It means our products are made from naturalingredients and bases validated by the Safe Cosmetics campaign. The ingredients we use are either organic, or forest collected without chemical contamination, and that even the chemical compounds we use for preservation or fragrance have natural origins not industrial. BDIH, the renowned German certification agency, screens ingredients, production processes and finally the products to eliminate artificial, industrial or chemical contamination and only then certifies products as ‘Natural’. You will find the BDIH natural certified seal on all Soultree products.
Botanicals ethically collected & organic
We source botanical ingredients either from certified organic farms or from natural forests. This makes certain there are no risks of chemical contamination. And since ingredient collection is done through NGOs who work with local farmers and communities, they ensure ethical harvesting practices are used that encourage forest regeneration and prevent exploitation.
Ayurvedic extracts made fresh and in-house
Active botanical extracts that enrich our products are painstakingly made in-house in true āyurvedic tradition. This ensures healthy products full of the beneficial properties of the botanicals.
No harmful chemicals
Because you have the right to know, we list every ingredient we use in our products. And as a member of the Safe Cosmetics campaign, we do not use harmful ingredients such as petroleum based products, SLS/SLES, silicones, parabens, DEA/TEA, phenoxyethanols, artificial fragrances or colours, which are commonly used in cosmetic products.
GMP certified manufacturing
Our manufacturing processes do not leave toxic wastes and they have a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Certification awarded by the Department of Ayurveda, Ministry of Health, Government of India.
Against cruelty & for recycling
We do not test on animals and every bit of our packaging is easily recyclable.
