How We Source
Our sourcing practice is intricate and thorough. Our founder, Laura, goes through various product lines from trusted brands and personally selects each and every product herself.
What makes the CGB sourcing process unique is that Laura verifies all the ingredients to ensure that they live up to The CGB Clean Living Standards AND she integrates all of the products into her daily life to hand test them and ensure that they look great, feel amazing, and work effectively before they make their way to our store. Besides making sure these products work up to our standards & are extremely "clean", she ensures all ingredients are sourced sustainably- so they never harm the environment, animals, or the workers who source them. Every ingredient in our store is researched thoroughly to completely understand the relationship it has to the body + the long-term benefits it holds for a person.
We love to support and source from fellow small businesses, especially those that hand-craft their products themselves, also using their science & beauty educational backgrounds, because they often share the same level of standards and ethics as we do. It's important that our partners and brands hold the same level of ‘clean’ living & ethical standards as we do.
