We harvest our witch hazel where it grows naturally – on 33,000 lush acres of untouched New England forest.
As specified by USP, the organization that sets standards for active naturals, we harvest dormant, mature witch hazel plants during the winter months. These plants have lost their leaves for the season, and have been exposed to the natural elements for years, allowing them to grow bark that holds the most efficacious components. In essence, we capture the most powerful plants at their peak potential out in nature, never on a cultivated farm. And, our sustainable harvest is annually certified as an organic wild crop, that actually promotes forest regrowth by clearing the canopy to allow younger witch hazel plants and other hardwoods to flourish.
