Why Organic

Why Organic?

The short answer is simply, "quality". A product can only be as good as the sum of its parts, and if you begin with the very best available ingredients, there's a chance your finished products will be the very best available, too.

At WoodSprite, it's always been about the highest quality--quality products, quality service, quality people. And it is our belief that the stringent standards of organic farming and processing produces the finest quality raw ingredients in the world today. Fruits are fresher, herbs livelier, flavors richer and oils more nutritious. Using good soil, fewer pollutants and sustainable farming practices makes for tastier crops and a healthier, cleaner planet. It just makes good sense.  Using organic ingredients in our body care products also makes good sense...our skin is the largest organ of our bodies, and is our first defense against the elements.  Our skin also readily absorbs those elements, delivering them directly into our bloodstreams, so it only makes good sense to ensure that the ingredients we put onto our skin are those we would want in our bodies. 

What Organic Means

Organic farming and processing is a method of agriculture that uses few or no chemical fertilizers, insecticides or pesticides and favors instead good practices such as natural composting, companion planting, crop rotation and diversity and completely eschews the use of genetically-modified-organisms (GMOs). These are actually methods that humans successfully employed for thousands of years before the industrial boom of the early 1900s, when tractors and machinery and heavy chemicals became the standardized way of agriculture, and this "commercial farming" is still the predominant form of agriculture today. However, polluted air, land and water; bland or hormone-laden foods and the unmitigated surge of GMOs has prompted a massive outcry for more organically grown crops, and organics are fast on the rise.

WoodSprite Organic Body products are the real thing; we do not add only a smattering of certified organic ingredients to "dress up" our organic content. WoodSprite Organic Soaps are made with only the finest food-grade oils, specifically chosen for the properties they bring to soap. In a base of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Coconut Oil and Sustainably Farmed Organic Palm Oil, we add Organic Shea Butter, Organic Sunflower Oil or Organic Sweet Almond Oil for their nutritive and moisturizing characteristics in our organic soaps. Additionally, we use only certified organic herbs or spices for color and texture. This makes our soaps and body care products anywhere from 70% to 100% certified organic in content. As more of our most commonly used natural ingredients are becoming available in certified organic form (such as pure essential oils and other nut and fruit oils), we are adding them to our repertoire. Of course, we don't have to do this; we are making these changes because we believe it is the right thing to do. Whatever part we can take in making our world cleaner, safer and more beautiful, we do because it is so important to us. And whatever it takes to bring you the most luxurious, deliciously pampering and wonderfully delightful natural products available, we'll do that, too. It is part of our ever-present quest to be the best.

Organics in Skin Care

Luckily, consumers are becoming more savvy and are voting for true organics with their pocketbooks. They know how to differentiate between quality natural ingredients and commercially "greenwashed" labels. That's why we proudly disclose full ingredients listings for all WoodSprite Organic Olive Oil Soaps and our Spa & Body products, on the labels and on our website. We are proud of the efforts we've made to bring you only the best nature has to offer, and we know that our ingredients speak for themselves. However, if you ever have any questions about or products or our dedication to a sustainable Earth for all, please don't hesitate to contact us.
