Sustainability Story

Kate McLeod makes safe, effective products that bring intentioned moments of care and everyday magic to people's lives. Our hero product is the Body Stone, an innovative solid moisturizer that melts into the skin on contact. Waterless and plastic-free, the Body Stone utilizes an innovative refill system: you can purchase a Starter Kit with our signature bamboo canister and refill over time with Body Stones of your choice. We use simple, powerful all natural ingredients, and our formulas are MADE SAFE certified, which means they have been examined for bioaccumulation, persistence, and general and aquatic toxicity. Every single Body Stone is hand crafted and packaged in our Hudson Valley workshop.
