Setting a new standard for an ancient practice

Historically, Traditional Chinese Medicine has been known to use ingredients that aren’t always ethically or sustainably sourced. While modern sourcing practices have improved, our goal is to set a new TCM standard with an emphasis on ethical and sustainable practices that leave a lighter footprint and a better world for all.
