We have always been conscious of the environment and the impact that manufacturing can have on the world we live in.

We have never partaken in animal testing and never will. None of our products, in either the product development or final production phase, have ever been tested on animals.

As much of our packaging and as many ingredients as possible are sourced from New Zealand suppliers wherever possible.

All of our printing is done using environmentally friendly inks. We use Arrowstar UV 7700 inks which are environmentally responsible and contain replenishable soy vegetable oil. These inks are water soluble ensuring that solvents and harsh chemicals are not required for clean up after printing is completed.

All Apicare packaging is recyclable and recycle codes can be found on all tubes and bottles. Our bottles are PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) and HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) plastics and our tubes are a medium density Polyethylene - all carry a recycle 1 or 2 code. The recycle code of all tube caps is 5.

Our Very Hardworkers Handcreme pots are made of HDPE, the caps are made of PP and the seals are made of LDPE and carry a 2, 5 & 4 recycle code respectively.

Our Body Crème pots are made PETG and carry a 1 recycle code.

Our Body Butter pots are made of PET and carry 1 recycle code.

All labels are biodegradable and boxes are recyclable. All of the paper and board used in Apicare packaging are environmentally responsible, are chlorine free and are sourced from companies certified under the Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI)

All orders are dispatched using environmentally responsible products comprising cardboard boxes, shredded paper and potato starch chips to ensure the sound delivery of our products.

All large export orders are sent by sea.
