Ingredients

At Noosa Basics we use the simplest possible blends of whole ingredients to create products that truly work, below some of the most used ingredients in our products.

Organic Shea Butter

Certified organic Shea butter directly fair trade from Ghana, Fair trade. Supporting locals that hand-processed using traditional methods. The nuts are dried and crushed before being roasted and pressed, this is then whipped and kneaded, before the shea butter is skimmed from the top.

Raw Virgin Coconut Oil

It carries Organic Certification under USDA* and Australia Certified Organic (ACO)* from the only certified organic coconut farm in Fiji. The farm also carries Kosher Australia and Halal certification.

Candelilla Wax

Candelilla wax is a sustainably and wild harvested wax from the candelilla plant. Native of North of Mexico and Texas. Our candelilla wax is hot water separated - we do not use solvent extracted waxes EVER. It is a wonderful alternative to beeswax, providing the same moisture barrier protection and is preferable for those with bee related allergies or those who prefer a vegan wax.

Tapioca

Tapioca flour is obtained from the cassava plant. It is a slightly sweet, white flour that is high in starch. Gluten-free, wheat-free and vegetarian. No chemical bleaching. No alcohol treatment. No additives. No anti-bacterial or anti-fungal agents. No bromate added.

It is commonly used in cooking as a thickening agent in fruit fillings and glazes or to make puddings and desserts. If mixed with other flours, it can also be used in baking.

Organic harvested Bi-Carb Soda

Sodium Bicarbonate is a secondary product of Soda Ash, derived from natural or man-made deposits.
The Bicarb we use has been extracted from ancient mineral deposits of Trona in Wyoming, USA.
Most popular Bicarbs are extracted from the same place however this Bicarb has been tested and graded Aluminium Free  [Aluminium <1ppm, not detected] an has been Certified Organic for its production methods by leading USA an Canadian organic Certifier OMRI.
Production method:
Trona ore is brought to the surface, refined into slurry containing both Soda Ash and Sodium Bicarbonate. The crystals and liquid are separated in a centrifuge and then crystals are dissolved in a bicarbonate solution and filtered to remove any non-soluble material. Purified carbon dioxide is fed into the filtered solution with the resulting reaction forming Sodium Bicarbonate. The Sodium Bicarbonate is held in holding bins where it cures, then packaged and shipped.
