Organic ingredients containt more phytonutrients than their synthetic counterparts. This results in more potent formulations, and better results for you skin. We choose organic ingredients for their skin benefits, their safety, and their limited environmental impact.
We choose Ecocert organic ingredients because they are produced according to the highest standards for sustainable agriculture. Organic agriculture prohibits the use of toxic, environmentally damaging pesticides and fertilizers. Additionally, the production of organic ingredients allows for water conservation, requires less energy and prevents soil erosion. This protects local biodiversity and produces safer, greener products.
CARBON NEUTRAL BOXES
Packaging is not just a minor detail for us but an opportunity to bring you genuinely sustainable products. We choose to use eco-friendly boxes that are:
- Made from Forest Stewardship Council certified paper.
- Printed in Canada.
- 100% Carbon Neutral.
What are carbon credits?
A carbon credit is a purchase that helps to reduce the environmental impact of an item. This investment reduces greenhouse gas emissions from our box fabrication. They are used to finance projects that decrease the need to directly burn fossil fuels or elicit greenhouse gas from the air, and hence carbon emissions. Therefore, carbon credits have a positive impact on the planet and help promote collective sustainability in communities around the world.
GLASS NOT PLASTIC
Many “green” beauty brands today still use non-biodegradable plastic that ends up polluting our rivers and oceans, and harming our wildlife. We find this unacceptable when there are many, more eco-friendly options on the market.
We store our products in high-quality Miron Violet Glass. The infinite recyclability of glass moves us towards zero waste and also helps to naturally extend product shelf life.
Say no to plastic, and yes to sustainable packaging!
Green Chemistry, aslo referred to as Sustainable Chemistry, is defined by the Environmental Protection Agency as, “the design of products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances.” For us, that means we try and manufacture at lower temperatures and use organic, eco-friendly ingredients that have a minimal impact on the planet.
