That's a really good question
Do all of your products contain Magnesium?
Nearly, but not all. Our Sleep Spray doesn't as it is considered an aromatherapy formulation to be used on bedlinen or pyjamas before bedtime. The blend of Chamomile and Lavender is what does the trick with this product.
What is the best combination to help with sleep?
For Adults our most concentrated Magnesium product is the Magnesium Oil. We recommend applying that to your lower legs or stomach about 20 minutes before bed to help start the relaxation process.
For really young Children or Babies go with the Little Baby Balm and Sleep Spray - a winning combination! The Little Baby Balm has a low dose of Magnesium so it won't irritate young skin but gives little bodies a little hit of Magnesium. And the Lavender and Chamomile in the Sleep Spray will help to calm little minds and shut them down for the night.
For older children or teenagers you can really choose any combination of the above. Just dilute the Magnesium Oil by applying our Magnesium Balm first and spraying over that area while they get used to it, as for the first couple of applications it may tingle. The tingle will stop and shouldn't cause any skin irritation but if you are not used to it can be a surprise.
Does Organic mean Certified Organic?
The short answer is no. When we can - we definitely do (get certified that is). When we can't, we use the most natural ingredients and components available (and quite often these themselves are certified organic). So you always know where you stand, we list everything we use in each product on the label - not just the active ingredients.
How do I know which products are Certified Organic?
We will always include in the product description if the product is Certified Organic and there's a little logo on the back of our certified products too.
Where do you manufacture?
We are Australian Made and Australian Owned.
The bottles look great - but do they contain BPA?
No, definitely not. We like to be able to pronounce all of the ingredients in our products including the packaging.
Do you test on animals?
No, only on children related to us.
Are your products suitable for sensitive skin?
Our products contain natural ingredients that have been specifically chosen to be as gentle on the skin as possible. If you have sensitive skin we always recommend you do a patch test before using any products (ours or anyone elses). And if you have super-sensitive skin then always check with your health care professional before switching things up.

Your bottles look a little different... whats going on?
Why thank you for noticing! We're making a few minor tweaks to our packaging so you might notice some changes from before. For example we won an award for our Magnesium & White Tea Hand and Body Wash... and not that we like to brag but we couldn't help but put the medal on our packaging.
