Okanagan Lavender & Herb Farm is a family business known for its home-grown, award-winning beauty, bath and body products that are also certified by CertClean. Grown on an old apple orchard, Okanagan harvests 60 different kinds of lavender and many different herbs.

The company’s Sage Nail Balm won 2nd place in the Clean Beauty Award this year in the body care category. For a product that moisturizes and strengthens weak nails to come second in a category full of luxurious body butters, serums and soufflés, it has to be pretty great. As Okanagan founder Andrea McFadden says “it is created with pure nourishing ingredients including organic, unrefined Fair Trade shea nut butter, organic jojoba oil, organic Fair Trade coconut oil, beeswax from our neighbour whose bees forage daily at our farm. There are five essential oils in this balm and four of them are grown and distilled at the farm.” It’s obviously an exceptional product.

Out of over 40 body care products in the Clean Beauty Awards, this product came in 2nd place. But what makes it stand out even more? As Toronto-based ethical luxury beauty influencer Natalie Milakara of the blog The Purist Life says, “I loved that the twist-top package is biodegradable! I’ve been trying to reduce my plastic consumption, so this was much appreciated.”
