This is the foundation of our company, our reason for being. Mahatma Gandhi said “Be the change you want to see in the world”. We are doing this.
Initiatives such as Ecocert / Cosmos accreditation, recycled plastic, FSC approved sustainable cardboard, hydro power, filtered effluent. We are sticking our head above the parapet to be the change.
We might get knocked down, we might make mistakes but we know it’s the right path. We are committed to making it better, keeping it going and telling our story to as many people as possible.
We want to share our wins and our losses. So that anybody who wants to embark on a similar journey, can learn from ours.
We upcycled a derelict linen mill in the village where we are from in Ireland. The fact that an existing mill has been repurposed has had a hugely positive impact on our carbon footprint. We have upgraded and improved the existing site where necessary in order to comply with GMP and to ensure that the site operates efficiently.
Ecocert and Cosmos accredited
As of January 2020 all our skincare products will be both Cosmos and Ecocert accredited. This has been a 2 year journey for us. We chose to go with Cosmos and Ecocert as we believe that they are the most credible credentials for natural beauty within the industry.
Plastics & Packaging
Our plastic bottles are manufactured using 100% recycled (PCR) plastic material which is also fully recyclable. We believe that just being recyclable is no longer enough. Although there are significant cost implications for us we simply do not wish to add to the amount of microplastics that are already in existence.
