Formulator’s Corner

FORMULATOR’S CORNER

This is where we go down the rabbit hole and talk about research and experiments with food, plants, and ingredients. The place where new ideas are sprouted, and new formulas and products are created. Tigger Montague, our founder and formulator, shares her insights and scientific research on health, nutrition, ingredients, and formulas. These articles are the basis of our products and our philosophies.
