In addition, we also know that an important part of keeping you healthy is testing the formula to confirm that the product will remain stable and safe throughout its shelf life. They have been tested for preservative effectiveness and will undergo regular batch testing during the manufacturing process. We use a natural, proprietary preservative system known as Geogard Ultra®. It is a synergistic blend of gluconolactone and sodium benzoate that not only has a broad range of preservative effectiveness, but can actually help moisturize the skin. The mixture complies with ECOCERT/COSMOS, NATRUE and Soil Association.
Finally, it is worth taking care of the health of the planet. We want to make sure we choose the most sustainable packaging available to us. The formula is housed in an amber glass jar with a lid made with 25% PCR. It comes to you in boxes made from 100% recycled paper, which are also recyclable. We also manufacture our formula in a 100% wind powered facility.
The formula itself contains organic (when possible) and natural ingredients obtained from renewable sources. And we avoid using ingredients derived from fossil fuels that don’t biodegrade (and therefore end up in water).
Moving forward, we will make changes as new green technologies become available to us. But for now, we’re very proud of the choices we’ve made, and we can assure you that whenever we’ve faced a tough choice about packaging, supply chain or delivery (ie contributing to carbon emissions), we’ve never taken the easy way out. The future of our planet is too important to take short cuts.
