Beauty Cleanse Skincare

We keep sustainability at the core of everything we do!

 

We believe that great skincare should not come at any cost to our planet. There is no denying of the impact that waste has on the environment, specially when 95% of the packaging in beauty industry is simply thrown away.

At Beauty Cleanse Skincare we believe that sustainability doesn’t apply to only one part of product’s lifecycle. It’s about ensuring that it runs through the entire product lifecycle, from the concept to the shelf. Therefore, we try our best to keep our ingredients, processes, manufacturing and packaging as sustainable as possible.

We are far from perfect but we’re currently doing what we can, in the areas that we believe we can have the major impact. We believe that there are 3 key areas which could be massively responsible for leaving a negative impact on our environment.

1- Ingredients used in the formulations,

2- Choice of Suppliers and Production Processes, and

3- Product Packaging.

 

Below are some of the small steps we are taking towards minimising our impact;

Quality & Transparency

Our Organic Ingredients are sourced from a British owned family heritage business  who keep their practises ethical & transparent and are founded upon the absolute passion for providing the finest natural and organic ingredients of high quality.

 

All of their Organic ingredients are registered with COSMOS, Soil Association  and SEDEX.

 

 

They are committed to travel to some of the most remote parts of the world to select the highest quality ingredients that also support farming communities, families, sustainability and environmental projects around the globe.

Ethical Choice

We carefully choose all of our suppliers to ensure their practises are aligned with our sustainability missions.

Our Label Suppliers are always striving to reduce their own waste going to landfill, hence, all of their waste is collected and sent for processing at an Energy Recovery Facility, to provide electricity for the National Grid and Heat for Sheffield’s District Energy Network, UK. They predominately use water-based flexographic inks, meaning they don’t contain harsh chemicals and have less impact on the environment than other types of inks such as UV.

Benefiting Local Economy

All our suppliers are based in UK. We buy majority of our packaging from local suppliers, andonly test and formulate our formulations in UK.

 

Recyclable Postal Packaging

We use 100% Biodegradable packing chips to pack our orders. This environmentally-friendly loose fill can be completely composted without leaving any traces behind for landfills.

All our other packing materials, such as parcel boxes are 100% recyclable and made from at least 60 – 80% recycled materials.

 

Our recyclable wrapping tissues are acid-free and made from 99% recycled pulp fibres. Approx 30% of electricity used to make this material  is produced from renewable sources.

We have reduced our parcel boxes and gift boxes to be the minimum size needed (while still protecting your products inside), which in turn require less padding inside.

Paper Consumption

We eliminate unnecessary paperwork, brochures, leaflets – we consider using electronic communication unless impossible. That is why, we do not send any paper receipts in our parcels.

 

Rock Paper Product Labels

Packaging labels is another area that could be responsible for negative impact on the environment. To minimise our impact, we use a unique ”Rock Paper Material” for all of our product labels.  This material is made from Marble produced from quarries, meaning by selecting this, we are helping to recycle waste and reduce our consumption of new resources.

 

Glass Packaging

All of our products are 100% recyclable. They come in glass packaging, as glass is infinitely recyclable and derived from natural raw materials. Unlike plastic, there are no issues around microplastics or toxicity within our oceans or wider environment. However, we look to use recycled glass wherever possible, as glass production is energy intensive so this can be compensated by using a recycled version.

 

Don’t forget that your glass bottles can always be upcycled to create unlimited DIY or travel-friendly alternatives.

Nutrient-Rich Cold Pressed Organic

We always aim to use maximum amount of Organic Ingredients in our formulations as they are kind to the planet. They are grown without being genetically modified and organic farming is one of the best processes to minimise carbon footprint. Organic ingredients also have no;

  • Harmful pesticides,
  • Controversial chemicals,

They are also kind to skin as they have all of their natural antioxidant, vitamins and minerals in their purest form.

 

You can simply distinguish our products from non-organic versions due to their beautiful feel, freshness and natural aromas. Our Carrot Algae Marine Drops do not contain any additional fragrance – it’s pure and uplifting aroma solely comes from the Wild harvested Organic Rosehip and Carrot Seed Oil.

Our products are always handmade from a combination of organic and inorganic oils because some oils are unavailable organically. In that case, we use 100% Natural  and Unrefined Cold Pressed Oils in its place as the second best option in terms of the purity and natural profile of the oils.

Utilising Discarded Raw Materials

It’s no secret that using upcycled ingredients means helping people, communities and the planet. Without healthy planet, we cant grow crops, we cant raise animals, we cant produce the water (needed in food production).

Here at Beauty Cleanse Skincare, we’re on a mission to choose nutrient-dense ingredients that are good for the skin and good for the environment.

We collect lots of discarded carrot seeds from local food suppliers and cold press them to produce a unique antioxidant rich oil for our carrot algae marine drops – by doing so, we are utilising raw materials that would otherwise be disposed of. We are on a constant look out for more similar ingredients that can be added in our product ranges.

Biodegradable Plant Oils

All of our plant-based oils are 100% biodegradable, and we do not use any silicones in our formulations.

Although silicones can help smooth the skin, but this effect is temporary and they actually accumulate in the skin and hair overtime. Also, as inert substances, they cannot nourish the skin like a plant oil that contains nutrients. This combined with the noted impact of certain silicones on the environment and concerns for aquatic impact has led us to formulate products without silicones.

100% Natural, Vegan & Cruelty Free

 

All our products are 100% Natural, Vegan & cruelty free. We define our natural ingredients as ‘naturally-occurring plants, seeds and floral extracts’, or ‘ingredients derived from nature’.

 

We are registered with Vegan Society and PETA Cruelty-Free. There are no animal by-products or ingredients in our product-range. We are strongly against cruelty to animals and do not aim to partner with any entity that participate in or allow animal-testing.

 

We formulate with an extremely high ingredient standard which promises to protect our skin, planet and animals.

Saving Unnecessary Waste Going to Landfills

All of our multipurpose formulations are created with meticulous attention to detail, efficacy, safety, ease and nutritious twist in mind. They not only make skin truly radiant, but also save unnecessary waste going to the landfills. By including the benefits of 3-4 products in one, we not only save unnecessary waste but also make skincare easy and handy during tiring routines. We don’t create products for the sake of expanding the range, in fact we aim to blur product categories to promote mindful and minimal consumption.

All Skin Types and Genders

We believe that every skin deserves to be pampered and treated healthily irrespective of gender and its type; therefore, our products are made suitable for all genders and all skin types, including sensitive skin. This again promotes minimal consumption, thereby, reducing CO2 emissions linked with creating and buying extra products.
