Our products are never tested on animal and they are cruelty free. We've only tested our products in consented happy humans (meaning my husband, friends and family)
We are proud to declare that our product will never contain synthetic ingredients, parabens, phthalates, sodium laurel sulfate, animal testing, petroleum and mineral oils.
They will only be created with natural ingredients, plant-based food grade oils, steam distilled therapeutics grade essentiel oils and many certified organic ingredients.
From the Earth to your Skin
MEET THE FOUNDER
Alexandrine Pierre - Founder and Director
This brand started as a hobby really. My husband and I started years ago to remove all the toxins and synthetics things in our house, to transition to only natural non harmful products. That's when I decided to start making our own skincare product.
I launched Apprenti Ôr'ganik the 9th of December in 2018. I am now working on my business full time and studying to get my chartered herbalist diploma. I found my purpose through Apprenti Ôr'ganik and this is how I am of service to others.
At the beginning everything was made in house by me, in my studio in Montreal. Now because of the fidelity of my clients, in which my success resides, I have the chance to hire a small women owned cosmetic lab that is now in charge of my production. Buying from Apprenti Ôr'ganik not only supports me but also two local companies (the lab and the local farm that produces my hempseed oil). This brings me so much joy. There is wealth and health in a circular economy.
Nature is my biggest inspiration when it comes to creating my formulation. It always starts with one natural ingredient and the skin benefits it generously gives us. I'm a strong believer in the power of the intentions that are put into doing something. I truly believe that my products come from a respectful, nurturing and giving relationship with Mother Earth. I see all the skin benefits provided by the product as a sacred gift from the earth bringing us back to the basics. The respect and gratitude for the natural ingredients put inside my bottles makes them more than just lotions or soaps. There's an energy of love and harmony that is received by everyone that uses the products''
