We are committed to supporting companies that operate with sustainable, fair-trade practices and that also provide the freshest possible ingredients. Those we source from range from small independent farmers to larger cooperatives that obtain most of their ingredients from organic and/or wildcrafted sources. The ingredients are then rushed to us so we can make you the freshest, most effective products possible. The majority of our ingredients are sourced from within the United States. We always do our research to ensure our ethics align with those we source from.
All of our products are completely natural, and we never use unnatural preservatives at all. Our products have a shelf life of typically 9-12 months when unopened; we recommend use within 6-9 months for optimal freshness (although we have some batch samples that are still fresh and viable long past the 1 year mark). To maintain freshness for the maximum span of time, keep products out of direct sunlight, in a dry place, and at room temperature or below.
No synthetic preservatives allowed! By natural, we actually mean it. Most of our products are preservative free and 100% Non-GMO. No formaldehyde, silicone, parabens, gluten or BPA plastic is used at Earth Harbor. If we sell an item that has a water-based component, we have to use a gentle eco-preservative to stave off the development of mold & bacteria. We are serious about every ingredient we use being researched across leading, trustworthy health & safety databases to ensure our formulas qualify for the very best, safest, and non-toxic categories. Please get in touch if you have questions about the impressive eco-preservatives we use.
Source is everything. Here is a breakdown of all our beautifully sourced marine ingredients and how we ensure to keep harmful chemicals, toxins, pollutants, microplastics and more away from your sweet skin (as well as maintain eco-responsible sourcing).
Seaweed: We source our organic seaweed/kelp (marine algae) from pristine waters with constantly shifting extremes of sea surface temperature that help to produce some of the world’s most bioavailable, nutrient-rich seaweed. Earth Harbor’s seaweed species has the distinction of being USDA Certified Organic. This seaweed is one of the most abundant sources of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. It is ten times richer in trace elements than land plants and is absorbed much quicker into the body.
Spirulina: Our organic spirulina comes from a farm on the pristine coast of Hawaii that draws on the natural resources that surrounds it – abundant warm sunlight, pure deep ocean water and 100% fresh water drawn from a Hawaiian aquifer. The spirulina is grown in a bio-secure zone and uses an ocean chill drying technique.
Blue Green Algae: Our organic blue green algae comes from the Klamath Falls in Oregon. It is the purest, most nutrient intact algae available in the world. Found in a remote area in the Oregon Cascade Mountains, it is wild-harvested and organic certified. It is highly bio-available and contains a full spectrum of minerals, chlorophyll, B Vitamins, Beta-Carotene, Pro Vitamin A, Lipids, enzymes, essential amino acids, nucleic acids, DHA and EPA fatty acids.
Sea Salt: We use only organic North Atlantic Sea Salt for its proven nutrient-density and lack of toxic pollutants compared to all other sea salts throughout the world thanks to unique ocean currents. Furthermore, our organic Sea Salt is put through a strenuous process that includes advanced Reverse Osmosis and Ion Exchange to be absolutely sure microplastics and other harmful chemicals are removed.
MSM: Sourced in the USA from the only non-GMO, gluten-free, allergen-free, non-shellfish-derived, GRAS-designated, vegan MSM waters backed by extensive toxicology data.
We recommend applying our facial elixirs after cleansing and toning, morning and night. They can be used in place of a cream moisturizer, or you can use a cream moisturizer prior to using our facial elixir. If you use enough facial elixir, then you will not even need another moisturizer! Know that your face does not need to be entirely dry to apply facial elixir. Actually, it increases rapid absorption and spreadability if your face is a little bit damp.
Feel free to wear makeup over facial elixir. Let your skin absorb the elixir for 3–5 minutes before putting on makeup for your skin to get all the benefits it has to offer. If your skin feels oily afterwards, you are using too much facial elixir. If your skin feels dry, you are not using enough facial elixir. The elixir oil should fully absorb and not leave any greasy or oily feeling. Your skin will feel moisturized, soft, and smooth once you apply the correct amount. 3–5 drops is what most people need — please adjust as necessary to your skin’s individual needs.
Begin by cleansing your face with one of our facial soaps and/or cleansing milk. Double cleansing with both (Aloha Love first and a facial soap second) offers many people a breadth of cleansing and skin benefits. Next, use either our spritz or our toner, which removes impurities that remain after cleansing, tightens pores, and prepares your face for moisture absorption. According to your skin's current moisture needs, follow with our moisturizer, and wait 1-2 minutes to absorb. Next, apply a facial oil elixir, and wait 3 to 5 minutes before applying makeup to allow the facial oil elixir to absorb into your skin. If you use an SPF (which we recommend!), apply after the facial oil and prior to putting on makeup.
Wonderful question! We understand that everyone’s skin is different. Finding that perfect ritual that is right for your skin can take time. We suggest trying our products for at least 28 days, because this will allow your skin to purge and adjust to the new products for a complete cellular renewal cycle. We are happy to assist you by recommending products. And if you would like, we would also love to walk you through a complete skincare ritual for your unique skin type to help you reach your skin goals. Reach out to us here!
Due to the nature of using 100% pure, natural, and wild harvested ingredients, the color and/or texture may vary with every harvest. This is the beautiful inconsistency that comes with keeping ingredients as close to the earth as we can get.
Once an item is ordered and paid for, please allow 2–5 business days for your order to ship, unless otherwise noted in the product description. Remember, we are handcrafting items so they are at the peak of freshness when you get them! This can include creating, bottling, labeling, and shipping. Handmade products takes a little longer to make than mass-produced ones. Let us know if you need an item by a specific date and we will always make it a priority to try to accommodate your needs.
For U.S. Orders: We primarily ship through USPS. After leaving our facility, USPS typically delivers in 2–5 business days. You will receive an email notification from us that contains tracking information once your order has been shipped.
