What products are safe for pregnant women?
Most of our products are safe for pregnant women. Please contact us directly if you are unsure so we can direct you to the safest option for what you're after. We also highly encourage people to seek advice from a medical professional before use as well.
Does Urthly Organics offer refills and packaging-free options?
Of course! We always take in UO product packaging to recycle or refill. For refills, we ask you to ensure that the packaging is cleaned properly after use (if applicable). For glass jars, we will not refill broken or damaged packaging (we will instead recycle the jar). You can drop off packaging at our warehouse, at our market stalls, or by mailing packaging back.
Also, we can send the majority of our range without product packaging and shipping paper. If you would like to receive no product packaging, leave a note on your order. For orders that want no shipping paper and padding, we will try to pack your order as best as possible to reduce damage in transport. However, we cannot provide the same guarantees for distribution as traditionally packaged products.

Why doesn't Urthly Organics make [insert product idea here]?
At Urthly Organics, we are a small business. This limits our capacity to make as much as a commercial manufacturer due to funds, storage, time, and more. We aim to make as much product possible to cater for a range of needs. If you have a suggestion, please let us know. We just cannot guarantee it is a viable option for us as a business.

How can I keep up to date with what's happening at Urthly Organics?
Sign up for our mailing list. We send a monthly newsletter out each month with all the goings-on at UO HQ. And we do not spam (we promise!)
Is UO certified Organic?
In using small businesses and farm for ingredients, we are unable to receive certification. This is due to the costs these small entities would have to pay to apply, which isn't viable in many cases. We aim to source as organically as possible, and are happy to provide further information on supply chains or how an ingredient was sourced. In choosing to not certify, we increase accessibility for small suppliers who are sustainable rather than supporting commercial suppliers that may need less support from our patronage. Instead of certification, we pledge transparency across our entire product range. Just contact us.
