Wildcraft is a Toronto-based skincare company devoted to creating 100% natural products at approachable price points. Their ultimate goal is to see as many women as possible have the opportunity to bring the luxury of natural skin care into their everyday beauty routines. By taking a thoughtfully minimalistic approach to their product design, they’ve been able to create a line of high-quality, truly natural essentials that all retail for $34 CAD or less.
This face serum is Wildcraft’s all-time best seller! This beautiful product is a concentrated, restorative formula rich in vitamins, proteins and minerals for the face. Composed of active ingredients such as seabuckthorn, Ontario hemp seed and frankincense oil, this is their heavy hitter for skin renewal. It goes on light and absorbs quickly (even for an oil). The palmarosa balances your skin’s sebum production, making this an ideal solution for all skin types.
This beautiful face cream is our favourite from the line! Designed with essential fatty acids and vitamin rich ingredients such as organic rose hip seed oil, geranium oil and orange flower water to restore your complexion’s vitality. We love the smooth and silky texture that provides just the right amount of moisture, leaves the skin feeling soft and smells absolutely wonderful. Ideal for dry skin.
This Wildcraft Makeup remover has a major cult following! Calm, cleanse and rejuvenate your skin with the gentle healing power of chamomile and honey. Designed as an introduction to oil cleansing, this product effectively removes makeup from your face and can be used as a quick cleanser on makeup free days as well.
“Oneka” means water in the language of a Mohawk tribe from Northern America. The brand’s name reflects the importance of water in the making of their all natural, hair, body and skin care products, that are free of sulphates, parabens, synthetic fragrances and are biodegradable.

The brand’s commitment to protecting the environment does not stop there: Oneka aims at reducing plastic utilization, through its bulk refill program and managed to save 960kg of plastic last year!
Oneka is as generous with their community as they are with the environment: every year, the company gives back 5000$ worth of products to centres dedicated to helping women and families overcome difficult financial situations.

Énamour products are free of parabens, fragrance, alcohol and petroleum and are dedicated to cleanse babies’ skin and hair, protect against the cold weather and help in healing eczema.

The brand does make a couple products for adults that we, at Ze Square, completely die for, such as their vegan lip balms. If you’ve tried different lip balm brands, you have probably realized they only provide temporary moisture, or further dry lips out. Énamour lip balms are the highest quality balms we have ever tried: they provide long lasting hydration and protecting properties, feel smooth, have a light and wonderful smell. They come in three types: Lavender, Mint + Lime and Peppermint + Lemongrass.
