Whose responsibility is it to improve the world in which we live? Is it the individual's? The corporation's? Perhaps the collective whole? We started Sea Witch Botanicals in an effort to do actual good on the planet. We believe in hoisting the boulder of social and environmental good against the endless mountain of strife faced against our world.
Stewardship. We chose the name of the Sea Witch as a symbol of our commitment to keeping the waterways clean of toxins. Synthetic fragrances, preservatives, irritants, and carcinogens insidiously lurk within many products--which we take for granted on a daily basis. We offer all-natural, affordable alternatives to help offset the impact of these "nasties" in our waterways.
Charity. Though a small group, we are committed to contributing to making a positive impact on the environment. As such, we donate to charities like Earthjustice and the Environmental Working Group (EWG) in order to promote awareness, research, and protection of our environment from harmful chemicals in our waterways. We thank you for your support in this effort!
Health. You shouldn't have to be wealthy to benefit from high quality, ethical, all-natural lotions, soaps, salves, balms et cetera. We share our passion with you so that we may all partake in the bounty of the Earth and Seas.
Prosperity. Our cocoa and shea butters are fair-trade. We choose these anti-slave sources in order to encourage farms with fair wages, fair living, and fair opportunities to the people who share their natural resources with us.
On behalf of the Sea Witch Botanicals team, we thank you for your support!

EWG - The Environmental Working Group
The EWG is our first stop when understanding the chemicals found in foods and cosmetics. You know those ingredients in shampoo that most people cannot pronounce, such as isobutylparaben? Well, EWG's Skin Deep database has easy-to-understand resources to help you understand what's going into your body and environment. Moreover, they advocate for transparency in chemical compounds introduced in our day-to-day lives.

"Because the Earth Needs a Good Lawyer" rings true with Earthjustice. This group takes on government agencies and corporations who tread on environmental laws and strengthens laws in the interest in the environment. If we have any hope in protecting our environment from greed and destruction, it's in the hands of the legal system.
