Our Sustainability Pledge

Our Sustainability Pledge

We have committed to become Climate Neutral Certified for 2021 and beyond!

We’re partnering with Climate Neutral, a non-profit organization that is helping us work toward carbon neutrality by measuring and offsetting our carbon footprint annually, while working to reduce future emissions.

“I believe that we all have a part to play in helping to take care of our planet, and I am committed to providing products that are not only healthy and clean, but also kind to the environment. This philosophy is woven into everything we do—from the ingredients we use, to the way we manufacture and package our products.” 

– Miranda Kerr, Founder & CEO

CLIMATE NEUTRAL

Cleanse. Mist. Moisturise

Our newest products feature sustainable glass packaging.

Our Turmeric Glow Moisturizer comes in a beautiful refillable glass jar and helps reduce waste by replenishing with a new refill pod. While our Milky Mushroom Gentle Cleansing Oil & Minty Minty Mineral Hydration Mist are both in a glass bottle

When you’ve finished with the product, simply, remove the pump and discard. Rinse out any remaining product in the glass bottle and recycle the glass bottle.

Our Packaging

All new products launching from 2021 and beyond will only use recycled, recyclable, or biodegradable materials in all primary and secondary packaging wherever possible.

We are striving to have all existing products repackaged to be more sustainable over the next 3 years and plan to incorporate refillable options when possible, like our Turmeric Glow Moisturizer with a refill pod.

We will be using more glass, aluminum, post-consumer resin and recycled FSC/biodegradable paper for our packaging.

Ecocert / Cosmos Certified Organic

We are Certified Organic by Ecocert/COSMOS, which is an independent global certification body that guarantees products and the ingredients we use are genuinely organic and produced to the highest feasible sustainability practices.

Everything from the ingredients to the manufacturing facilities to the packaging materials must be reviewed, approved and audited by Ecocert/COSMOS. By having our products independently reviewed and accredited to this standard, our customers can trust that our products are organic and produced sustainably.

Ecocert/COSMOS organic guarantees: responsible use of natural resources, respecting biodiversity, no GMOs, petrochemicals, artificial colors or artificial fragrances, recyclable packaging, and cruelty free.

Ingredients & Manufacturing

Ecocert/COSMOS organic standards require that every ingredient is reviewed to ensure that it is sourced ethically and sustainably and derived from natural/organic sources.

The certification process requires annual auditing of all registered brands and manufacturers to ensure compliance, including inspections of farm fields and processing facilities, detailed record keeping, and periodic testing of soil and water to ensure that growers, handlers and all processing and manufacturing along the way are meeting the strict standards.

The organic farming techniques used to harvest our ingredients also provide a safer, more sustainable environment for everyone. Organic farming eliminates the use of synthetic pesticides and nitrogen pollution which benefits water, wildlife and people. These sustainable practices involve less pollution, less soil erosion and require less energy, as per inspiration from the Organic Farming Research Foundation.

Ecocert/COSMOS Organic certification also requires the use of responsible and environmentally friendly production processes during manufacturing, and the majority of our manufacturing facilities are powered by renewable energy sources.

Organic Farming Research Foundation

We proudly support the Organic Farming Research Foundation as they advocate “Organic for Climate” and educate on how organic farming is more eco-friendly while equally promoting bio-diverse soil for healthier harvests.

Organic farming practices promote healthier soil, allowing crops to obtain nitrogen, phosphorus, and other nutrients from organic soil matter. They do not use synthetic pesticides and fertilizers either, which are some of the primary contributors of greenhouse gases.

Conventional farming, on the other hand, follows a practice known as mono cropping. Where crops are grown on the same land year after year, with minimal crop rotations, resulting in severe depletion of nutrients and minerals. Farmers need to then add fertilizers, synthetic pesticides, and herbicides—further destroying natural soil biology.

The good news is that we support the foundation in their plight to educate farmers to create healthier soils, and healthier harvests.

We follow the motto of “REDUCE. REUSE. RECYCLE. REPLENISH,” for healthier skin and a healthier planet.

With love,
