We've grown tremendously since we formed in 2015, yet each product is still handmade in Adria's kitchen! We also ship out each order from her home - no warehouses here! This care and attention knits us closely to each product, shipment and each customer. Yes, in this "Amazon Prime" era, it might seem unusual to wait 2 weeks for your products to arrive, but you'll be glad you did! :)
Reach one, teach one: No one knows everything nor do we have the time to try. We all have our passions and gain knowledge by pursuing them. Our passion is hair care. With that, it's our responsibility to share what we've learned with you so that you can increase your own knowledge base. This means that we won't simply list Sustainable Organic Red Palm oil as an ingredient in our Hot Sauce, we'll tell you why we put it in there. We won't just craft our edge brush (including it's bristles) from Bamboo. We'll tell you why we did. Let us make you a little smarter when it comes to this stuff - no need for you to reinvent the wheel! And then maybe this will free you up to spit some knowledge on us about your passions as well :)
Use ingredients that are good for you: We believe that you are what you eat. We also believe that what you put ON your body is just as important as what you put IN it. So, why should we take the time to put organic fruits and veggies in our diet while slathering our hair and scalp with ingredients that we can't pronounce? Each ingredient in our products is carefully chosen because it gets the job done AND is good for you. You don't have to worry about reading the ingredients label (although you should!) because you can trust that we have your back.
Respect the environment: This home is not just ours. We only get to take in it's awe it because of those that have come before us. This means that we have a responsibility to consider those that will come after us. Let's not be arrogant. Let's not be selfish. Instead, let's be grateful and honor those that left it in decent shape for us by doing our best to keep it that way for "future us" and our kids...and our grandkids... and their grandkids. C'mon man. *stepping off soapbox*
Be kind to one another: Where do we even start? We've got to lift each other up. The world can be a cruel place. We strongly believe that we've done our job when we put a smile on your face and a spring in your step. On social media, we take this most seriously. Only positive posts get our likes and too much drama will get you unfollowed with a swiftness. This also translates into taking the time to respond to as many social media posts and emails as possible and doing whatever it takes to make you happy with your Ecoslay experience. Nothing makes our day like a repeat customer or an email about our outstanding customer service. That lets us know that we're doing our job.
- Sydney, Adria, Jasmine and Chris
