The world’s finest Superfood Chocolate®. The bars are hand made and sealed in a recycled, FSC Certified, envelope that is fully biodegradable. GOOD CACAO™ chocolate has been carefully developed using well known, whole-food organic ingredients from around the world such as: Raw Ecuadorian Cacao, Peruvian Lucuma and Maca, Brazilian Cupuacu, African Baobab, Madagascar Vanilla Beans, and more. They begin their process with USDA Organic, Rainforest Alliance Certified, and Single Origin Ecuadorian 72% Cacao. Their chocolatiers slowly temper the rich dark chocolate – heating and cooling it until we are ready to blend over 16 superfoods into our chocolate base. They then blend in various evidence-based and patented nutraceuticals such as NutriHEART™, Fuji AstaREAL®, DSM/ Martek life’sDHA®, Biothera Wellmune®, FloraGlo® Lutein, Pycnogenol®, and Ganeden BC30 Pro-Biotic – the result is a deliciously complex and socially responsible Functional Chocolate®.

Juice Beauty… high efficacy yet authentically organic beauty solutions masterminded by a California team passionate about healthy lifestyles and whose organic products are backed by powerful science. It all started when Karen Behnke, serial wellness entrepreneur, who built one of the first corporate wellness companies in the country, developed a keen interest in personal care products upon becoming pregnant with her first child at the age of 40. She was astounded to learn that, although the skin absorbs over 60% of what is placed on it, there were very few available healthy personal care products that worked well. Karen subsequently bought the name “Juice Beauty” and launched the Company. Juice Beauty’s mission is to bring high efficacy, authentically organic, and pleasurable beauty solutions to people worldwide. Juice Beauty is proud to fulfill this mission with their clinically validated products supported by solid eco-values including the purchasing from certified organic farmers and manufacturing with California’s sun (solar power). Karen has assembled a team of experienced professionals and scientists who are pioneering organic efficacy within the beauty products industry. Juice Beauty, with its unique antioxidant packed organic juice base, is featured in retailers throughout North America and Asia and was awarded its first patent for the unique Green Apple Peel formulation.

Free Spirit Botanicals
Free Spirit Botanicals is operated in beautiful Victora, BC by Joseph Gonyeau and Wendy Greer. This is how they describe it: We started out with soap making but as our knowledge of commercial skin care products grew, so did our product line. It seemed silly to use a natural soap, and then apply a petroleum or alcohol based cream on our skin after washing. Research has shown that chemicals found in skin care products get absorbed through the skin and over time build up in our internal organs. This can have a negative affect on the immune system. We feel that feeding the skin is a healthier choice. Over the years of making our products we have expanded by meeting our own skin care needs and also by filling the requests of our customers. It is always exciting to hear stories of how people are seeing an improvement to their skin and health by choosing products that feed their skin rather than doing more damage to it. You can order all their products online too! Check them out on Facebook!

Sibu Beauty the journey to create a successful company can be as arduous as scaling a Tibetan mountainside, but well worth the view from the top. Bruce McMullin founded Sibu in 2003 after series of events led him to Calcutta, India where he crossed paths with an ayurvedic specialist in Chinese plants and herbs. In passing, this expert mentioned a powerful holy fruit, the Sea Buckthorn berry.
From there McMullin’s quest took him to new heights, figuratively and literally, as he journeyed to some of the most remote locations of the Himalayas to find the superior source of Sea Buckthorn that is the foundation for all Sibu products. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter!
