Pepo Park uses all natural ingredients whenever possible. We will never use petroleum based ingredients, artificial dyes or ingredients that are just plain unpleasant (like Sodium Laureth Sulphate and Sodium Lauryl Sulphate). What this means for you is that your skin will feel better than it ever has.
Essential oils have been used throughout history for their well known therapeutic qualities. They are oils derived from plants through steam distillation or cold-pressing. The science of using essential oils for healing is called aromatherapy. Our interest in using and studying essential oils and our own experience with essential oils to help with various ailments is what lead us to use them in our products. If you are allergic to synthetic fragrances, you are unlikely to be allergic to essential oils unless you're allergic to the plant itself. Once you smell our products, scented with pure essential oils, you'll be hooked.

We keep your safety in mind and may use preservatives in some products. We stay up-to-date on the latest research, using natural products where possible. We feel that a little preservative from us or other products you use is better than mold or fungus growing in your product then making you sick. Our room spray contains a small amount of Cosmocil CQ, a bactericide. Fungus and bacteria grow in water, therefore, we recommend that any product you use that contains water also contain a good preservative.
