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, at Beauty Cleanse Skincare we believe that sustainability doesn’t apply to only one part of product’s life cycle. It’s about ensuring that it runs through the entire product life cycle, 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;

SUPPLIERS

Quality & Transparency

Our Organic Ingredients are sourced from a 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.

Ethical Choice

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. 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 – 100% Made in UK

We are a 100% made in UK. We test, formulate and package our products in Britain.

PRODUCT PACKAGING

Recyclable Postal Packaging

Our product and parcel boxes are 100% recyclable and made from at least 60 – 80% recycled materials – made with paper from FSC certified sources, meaning materials from well-managed forests and/or recycled sources.

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. (Dissolve them in water to see for yourself)

 

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.

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 ”Rock Waste Paper Labels” for all of our products.  This material is made from 80% Marble Mining Waste & 20% recycled HDPE. Rather than this mining waste be taken to landfill, it is instead used to create this label material which also has a distinctive premium feel for aesthetic purposes. By selecting this, we are helping to recycle waste, reduce our consumption of new resources and help keep our environment clean and pollution-free.

Marble waste is generally a high polluting waste due to both its high alkaline nature, and its manufacturing processing techniques, which impose a health threat to the environment. The quarries and processing plants are littered with large amounts of waste products deriving from extraction, sawing, polishing. At present, no significant activities are in place to recover and reuse the ultrafine CaCO3 dust combined in waste slurries of marble processing plants. Therefore, the only best alternative for now is to encourage other industries to use this waste as primary or secondary raw materials where possible. This means working towards a circular economy that aims to preserve resources by valorizing the existent, perhaps currently discarded, rather than buying new ones.

 

 

Glass Packaging

All of our products comes in 100% recyclable glass bottles. Glass is infinitely recyclable and derived from natural raw materials. Unlike plastic, there are no issues around micro plastics 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.

 

 

Droppers

The only small component of our packaging that contains plastic is in our droppers. The glass pipette of the dropper can be detached from the collar which makes it possible to recycle it with the bottle. However, the collar itself needs to be disposed of in the general waste. It is the only plastic that we use and we are constantly exploring materials that are fully compostable that we hope to move into as soon as they are available in the market. For now, we have introduced a 100% plastic-free refill system where customer simply save the dropper from his first bottle and select “plastic-free aluminium cap” from the drop-down menu when making a repeat purchase. This saves unnecessary waste and encourage consumers to reduce and reuse.

INGREDIENTS

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.

100% 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 carefully choosing ingredients which provide multiple benefits in one product, 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.
