Our Values

We deeply echo our values. And so do our partners.

All-natural

Nature has the best antidotes. We strive to bring products that are organic and natural to your table. With minimum processing and zero adulteration, you buy the purest and best quality goods here.

Allergen-free

We try to work with brands that make allergen-free products. These are either manufactured in an allergen-free facility or come with a statutory warning indicating potential allergens.

Curated

Our team has LITERALLY put the product catalogue together. Because we sell what we believe in. And we stand by the quality of the curated products. So, WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get)!

Veganism & Animal Welfare

As clean living enthusiasts, we believe in harnessing the goodness of greens. Also, we hold our furry, flying, crawling and hibernating friends closest to our hearts. #CrueltyFree goes without saying.

Family-owned Businesses

As a homegrown publishing brand, we love family-owned businesses. Our partners use the choicest of ingredients, sound scientific wisdom and lots of love, in their formulations.

Ethical and Sustainable

Fairtrade is cardinal and we pledge to support it. Our partners ethically source ingredients from across the globe. They put our planet above all else. We also encourage businesses to package and ship products.

Our Vision

To normalize holistic and mindful living in Canadians.

Our Mission

To empower health-conscious Canadian consumers in making informed buying decisions by creating accessible, unique, authentic and evidence-based health and wellness content.

We believe in and practice diversity and gender equality. We extensively work with small, family-run and women-led businesses across the world to support women’s empowerment in every way.

We strongly support sustainability and planet-positivity. We try our best to do our bit towards fighting climate change, world hunger, health inequity and the global water crisis.
