We keep sustainability at the core of everything we do...
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. However, sustainability isn't only limited to the packaging, so there is so much more to it.
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.
2. CHOICE OF SUPPLIERS
Recyclable & Biodegradable Packaging Materials
We use 100% Biodegradable packing chips to pack our orders. This environmentally-friendly loose fill can be completely composted upon contact with water and do not leave any traces behind for landfills. Even the tapes we use in our offices are completely biodegradable - free from plastics.
All other packaging boxes, postal 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 eliminate unnecessary paperwork, brochures, leaflets – we consider using electronic communication unless impossible. That is why, we do not send any paper recipes in our parcels.
Upcycled Rock Waste Paper Labels Packaging labels is another area that could be responsible for negative impact on the environment. To minimise our impact, we use a unique ”Upcycled Marble Rock Waste Materials” for our serums. 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.
All our products are housed in 100% recyclable glass. 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.
We offer 100% Plastic-Free Refill options for all repeat purchases. All returning customers can easily choose aluminium caps from the drop down menu at the checkout. This help reduce unnecessary waste and encourage reusing existing materials.
CHOICE OF SUPPLIERS
Quality & Transparency
Our Organic Ingredients are sourced from British-owned family heritage businesses who keep their practises ethical & transparent and are founded upon the absolute passion for providing the finest & highest quality natural and organic ingredients. 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.
We carefully choose all of our suppliers to ensure their practises are aligned with our sustainability missions. For example, 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.
Benefiting Local Economy – 100% Made in UK
We are a 100% made in UK. We test, formulate and package our products in Britain.
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.
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
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.
100% Biodegradable, Multipurpose Ingredients
All our ingredients are 100% biodegradable, and we always work with multibeneficial ingredients to create innovate formulations. This is our way of designing products that help minimise waste. We believe that the most sustainable product is the one that has not been bought or produced. Because, no matter how sustainable the idea is, there is always some sort of carbon footprint linked to the consumption and production of new products. Therefore, our aim is to always design products that prevent releasing unnecessary CO2 in to the environment in the first place.
100% Natural, Vegan, Cruelty Free
All our products are 100% Natural, Vegan and Cruelty free. However, we never say ‘Natural’ is always the best. The best ingredients are the ones which are safe, sustainable and results-driven. Therefore, we work with carefully selected natural ingredients that fulfil this criteria. We define natural as ‘naturally-occurring plants, seeds and floral extracts’, or ‘ingredients derived from nature, or nature identical solutions which promises safety and sustainability’.
We formulate with an extremely high ingredient standard which promises to protect our skin, planet and animals.
