FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What does Green Jiva mean?
‘Jiva’ is Hindi for soul. Our brand name Green Jiva reflects our Indian influences and our drive to do good and to repair the damage we have caused to the planet and to each other.
What is your packaging made from?
We have packaged our products in glass an aluminium containers to avoid plastic packaging. We do have pumps for our perfumes and body lotions that contain plastic but we are able to sell our products without pumps - simply pick the appropriate product at check out. In fact, our products with screw caps will cost you a little less, so we encourage you to purchase pump-less products! We are also currently working on offering our customers a refill system to further reduce waste and single use. We will let you know as soon as this is launched.
Plus, if you buy products in person from us at one of our stall, we will offer you a recycled paper bag for your products; never plastic.
Do you test on animals?
No. Never. Not in a million years.
Are your products suitable for vegetarians and vegans?
Of course they are. Green Jiva owners Jess and Andy are both vegan and this ethos and way of life was a driving force behind their decision to launch the company.
How do you fragrance your products?
Naturally! There are no synthetic fragrances in our products, they contain solely the wonderful aromas of our essential oils.
How do you colour your products?
We don’t! Any residual colour in our products is a result of the combination of ingredients rather than the inclusion of any synthetic colourants.
What is the shelf life for Green Jiva products?
Up to 30 months.
I have sensitive skin are Green Jiva products suitable for me?
We do not include parabens, silicones, SLS, sulphates, phthalates, alcohol (ethyl alcohol, ethanol) or synthetic fragrances or colourants in our products. We also include high quality, organic ingredients in our recipes to make our products as kind as possible to your skin. In addition, Jess has very sensitive skin and is prone to bouts of psoriasis. She makes a point of personally testing all of our products on her own skin. If the products don’t pass the ‘Jess test’, they simply don’t get launched.
