we believe the beauty industry has an obligation to source ethical and sustainable ingredients so we can keep the planet as beautiful as we keep ourselves.
That’s why we only work with trusted farmers and only use versatile and eco-friendly ingredients like the Tigernut plant.
The Tigernut plant is a remarkable crop that can truly be sustainably grown. And with its huge potential for sustainable living, we think you’ll be seeing a lot more of it in the future as we all push towards a greener, healthier, and safer tomorrow.

regarding provenance. The Tigernut plant is an amazingly versatile and sustainable crop. It’s been cultivated in the Mediterranean for thousands of years and references to its cultivation and uses have been found in tombs in ancient we practice regenerative and sustainable farming.Tigernut is a sedge grass that can grow in a variety of climates, and through our own research we’ve discovered that it can thrive right here in Canada without irrigation. That means the crop doesn’t need any more water than nature provides. The plant is perfect for growing in the sandy soils of Ontario’s tobacco belt which gives farmers an easy transition from farming tobacco to this superfood.

Our Tigernut plants are also grown sustainably, without the use of pesticides or fertilizers, which minimizes any potential strain on soil health and the surrounding wildlife.

One more benefit. Tigernut is a cover crop. This is a key part of regenerative agriculture. Before you hit the snooze button, this is a pretty exciting part of bringing soil health back to our planet. During harvest, the grass that the Tigernut plant produces is cut and left on the ground to biodegrade, rather than being removed and the soil being tilled. This creates a nutrient rich environment as the grass breaks down, feeding the soil’s microbiomes. It also works to prevent soil erosion by making the earth spongey, textured, and teeming with life. So the entire plant, from grass to tuber, can be used without creating any waste. And it gives back to the earth. We’re pretty proud of that.the process.We extract the oil from the Tigernut tuber through cold pressing (this means not using any chemicals to extract the oil and keeping the oil at a low temperature to reduce any free radical activity). After the oil has been extracted a fibrous meal or pulp is left behind. This remaining meal can be used as a food additive or it can be milled and used as a gluten-free and low-sugar alternative to wheat flour. It can also be processed into a dairy-free milk alternative with a high content of resistant starch, a prebiotic fibre that’s great for gut health. We know, it’s beginning to sound like there’s nothing the Tigernut plant can’t do, except for filing your taxes.
