Our Ingredients & Process

Welcome!

Victoria Kay Designs has a passion to source and grow the finest natural and organic ingredients - then use those ingredients to handcraft in small batches the most unique, luxurious, quality herbal and natural body care solutions available.

Victoria Kay Designs is also very unique in that we seek out various (esp. external) issues and conditions of the body and then handcraft a solution using herbs grown in our own garden. Those products have turned out to be our best sellers! In addition, we make lovely all-natural soaps, lip balm & lip stick, as well as moisturizers for everyday use - each and every one of them perfect for sensitive skin and which also include a number of herbs and essential oils.

We also pride ourselves on the fact that WE DO IT DIFFERENTLY! We are very unique because of our dedication to providing quality, truly natural products. In addition, we ACTUALLY handcraft our products from scratch, from our own exclusive researched recipes and proprietary process. We put in a lot of time and effort to make them (more on this in the section below).

Victoria Kay Designs is working hard to make a difference for our world and for your health through our promise of safe, healthy products that will hopefully help you in your journey to be healthier and happier. 

Home Grown Herbal Body Care - Where Art History & Science Come Together!

We Care DEEPLY About Our Planet and Everyone's Health! 

We dearly love this little planet that we call home and have a lot of concern for everyone's health and welfare, including the precious future generations to come. Personally, our family's health also has been severely impacted by the toxic chemicals that we as a society, sadly still continue to use in everything, everywhere. Therefore purity and ethics are very important to us because we care about you and want you to be in the best health possible! So we would never think to knowingly include anything artificial, much less any chemicals, herbicides, pesticides, parabens, additives of any kind, SLS, or gluten. Our products are also free from all other nasties that are typically in personal care products like artificial preservatives (made from GMO corn alcohol & toxic parabens), Phthalates, synthetic dyes/fragrances, petroleum by-products, emulsifying oil, wax, paraffin, Propylene Glycol, mineral oil, silicones, PABA, DEA, sulfates, soy oil & other soy products, canola oil and anything else bad for you! We NEVER use any oils that come from nuts (i.e. almond) as so many people have nut allergies. Many people don't consider lanolin to be harmful, however we choose not to use it as it is an animal product and we consider it to be an inferior ingredient. Also, we have found that many customers are allergic to milk products, therefore we never use dairy in any of our products. We also NEVER use Palm Oil as it is not a sustainable, eco-friendly product and it is also an inferior oil in our opinion. Most of our ingredients are organic, although we don't officially claim organic status. 

We promise you that we NEVER EVER knowingly put any of these "nasty" ingredients that cause cancer and disease into our products. Instead, 100% of the time we actually use wholesome, 100% natural ingredients that are wonderously good for your body. 99% of the products include a variety of herbs from our permaculture garden (lavender, comfrey, calendula, chamomile, lemon balm, etc.), and are grown right here at our backyard in West Michigan. Whatever herbs we can grow here, we do, and then we work to specially infuse them into wonderful organic oils for the products.

We have worked hard for many years to create a great Permaculture Garden (permaculture = organic gardening on steroids) so that the ground is very strong and beneficial for the plants.

Each and every ingredient is always listed so you know what's in the product and what's not. Our products are never tested on animals (only willing humans :-). We do not and promise not to EVER dilute or cheapen our products in any way.  We gain a lot of satisfaction in giving you the highest quality and potency we can make so YOU will benefit. In fact, we are proud to say that our products are hypoallergenic!

The ingredients in our completely original formulas are sourced from around the globe. We source our 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils directly from their country of origin - that way they're stronger! In addition, we source only the highest quality ingredients available (organic if we can get it - including all organic Avocado, Castor, Tamanu, Camellia, Coconut, Olive, Sunflower and Grapeseed oils) and other ingredients (including herbs we can't grow here) so that you receive the best possible product to help improve the beautiful body our creator gave you. Our beeswax and unfiltered honey are purchased from local West Michigan small business owners who are dedicated to ethical, natural/organic treatment of their bees and producing a quality product. Organic ingredients are always sourced whenever possible!

Each product is made from those high-quality ingredients in small batches, from scratch (NEVER from a base/bucket/melt & pour!) with lots of prayer and love, in the magnificent state of Michigan, USA.Other natural care products producers claim that their products are

100% natural and handmade from scratch by them personally...

Victoria Kay Designs's products actually are - you can count on it!!!

We pride ourselves on the fact that WE DO IT DIFFERENTLY! We are very unique because of our dedication to providing quality, truly natural products. In addition, we ACTUALLY handcraft our products from scratch, from our own exclusive researched recipes and put in a lot of time and effort to make each product. There's a long process that goes into making our soaps, salves, lotions, face cream, lip products, etc. (uniquely made with our own proprietary process), but here's the short version - we infuse herbs into organic oils, then add butters and essential oils, as well as lots of love and prayer! 

Sadly, most personal body care product makers -including small artisans - skip the actual hard work of making their products from scratch and instead use pre-made "bases" for lotions and "melt & pour" for soaps that they've bought from another source (comes in a bucket). These pre-made products are always very cheap and made from toxic, inferior materials with synthetic toxic preservatives already added. They then add toxic artificial fragrances (or essential oils) and toxic artificial colors that could cause cancer, various diseases - including reproductive diseases - then they bottle the lotion or pour the soap into molds. Yuck!! These products are typically priced very low as well... Unfortunately these are not 100% from scratch, handmade, all-natural products as they claim them to be. We're betting that these types of products are not what you want to be putting on your skin, much less your children's skin - right!? 

We want to be different and provide you with a really superior product! Therefore, we source our ingredients and make the products the way we do because we REALLY TRULY do care about you!! Excellence, Ethics, Integrity, Honor, Trust and always being Truthful mean everything to us - not only in business, but in our personal lives too! 

In addition, we are proud to be an eco-friendly, "green" company, producing as little waste as possible and pride ourselves on the fact that our products are eco-friendly and green, including our containers! We try very hard to use plastic containers that are PET #1 (Polyethylene Terephthalate), which are 100% recyclable. 

We look forward to serving you, your family and friends in the future with our products!
