Here at Purrfect Sunday, handcrafting products in a sustainable, ethical, and eco-conscious manner while also giving back to the Earth and community is our way of life! Our mission is to provide you with quality products made with love that you can use with confidence. To give a little more insight on our passion, we’re here to share a little more background on our “purr”pose. Let’s get to it!
Why Natural Ingredients?
Using ingredients that can harm you, or the environment is not our style! Our products are made in small batches with only quality, all-natural ingredients - with the exception of certain preservatives, binding ingredients, and/or vitamin boosts. When possible, we choose plant-based synthetics. For our skin care items, they are at the minimal 97%-99.5% in terms of being all-natural, and the remaining percentages are allotted for preservatives only.
Why must we use some preservatives? This is so that the products can last longer than a week and up to 1 year. We want you to be able to have a usable and quality product that serves its purpose and will last!
In general, natural ingredients are better for your skin because they do not contain any unwanted toxins or chemicals. Some skin care products out there may involve harmful ingredients that can potentially damage your skin. Who wants that? All of our products list exactly what is in them so that you don’t have to wonder what you will be putting on your skin!
Being eco-friendly is the name of the game at our shop! All of our containers that we use can be recycled or upcycled to help preserve the environment. We love a multi-functioning product here! The botanicals that we utilize in our hand decorated candles and bath soaks for example are all fair trade. What does that mean exactly? That means that where we purchase from it goes straight to those who made it, leaving a positive impact! How sweet is that?
While on the subject of candles, they are made using 100% American soy wax and also have an eco-wick. This means that it burns cleaner, longer and will not harm the environment. A pretty candle that’s also good for the Earth? Yes please!
Keeping the environment free of waste is one of the things that we strive for not only in our shop, but also where we shop! All of our ingredients and containers come from small and medium sized companies to keep things sustainable.
Giving back to others and the Earth makes us feel oh-so good! 10% of our proceeds go towards our Anti-Cruelty Society where one of our “cat-bassadors”, Marlo, was rescued from. Additionally, 100% of what we spend contributes to growing jobs here in the U.S., from the small & medium-sized business we purchase our containers, to growing our team here within Chicago.
