Our commitment to sustainability
We have always been aware of the world we live in and the impact manufacturing has on the environment.
We do lots of little things on a daily basis that add up to make a difference. Things like shredding all our waste paper.
We use pop starch to pack our orders, which is made from 100% compostable corn and is bio degradable.
Our new building is built facing north to gather all the wonderful sun, insulated in the roof, walls and ceiling with double glazed windows. A concrete floor absorbs and releases the suns heat.
We use rain water for all our water use which is filtered and sterilised with an ultra violet sanititser.
We use no plastic acetate (common in skincare gift packs) and we have never used micro plastic beads in our exfoliating products using instead jojoba and bamboo beads.
We pack in recyclable tubes, PET and HDPE bottles and recyclable pots. Currently we have some products in a PP recycle 5 and we are looking at alternatives for these products, as some areas do not recycle a 5 plastic.
All our cardboard packaging is made in New Zealand using natural vegetable inks and water based aqueous seals.
We are based in the foot hills of the Waitakere ranges and our bee hives are on our farmlet and farms close by. When selecting sites for our bees we ensure there is no commercial spraying nearby.
