Courtney says, “we’re really intentional about everything we do. We don’t just launch a product to launch a product. We do it with a lot of thought behind it. Lots of inspiration. We put a lot into our packaging and into our ingredients. I tried to do things from that mindset and intention before we launch things into the world. That’s what it means to me to be a modern and conscious brand.”
