Business as a force for good
This has always been the foundation of our company, our reason for being. Mahatma Gandhi said “Be the change you want to see in the world”. And that's what we're doing.
We are so proud to be B Corp™ certified, it is one of the hardest global certifications to gain and maintain. We are reassessed annually.
As a B Corp, we’re part of a global community of businesses that meet high standards of social and environmental impact. We're counted among businesses that are leading a global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy.
Initiatives such as post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, FSC approved sustainable cardboard boxes, hydro power, filtered effluent, compostable refills and more. We are sticking our head above the parapet to be the change.
We might get knocked down, in fact we have been knocked down many times. We've made mistakes and we've learned from them. We're learning every single day. But, we know this is the right path - for us, for our people, our community and our planet. And on this path, we endeavour to leave only footprints.
We are committed to making things 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 Slane 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 all the necessary safety and health standards and to ensure that the site operates efficiently and safely for our staff. And we get to work in one of the most idyllic valleys in Ireland.
Plastics & Packaging
Our plastic bottles are manufactured using 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic - which means our plastic bottles are part of a circular economy, they are made from recycled plastic bottles. They are also fully recyclable.
We use PCR plastic because we believe that just being recyclable is no longer enough. We simply do not wish to add to the amount of plastics that are already in existence.
We wear each product credential with pride. All our skincare products are certified natural by Cosmos Ecocert. Everything we make is certified cruelty free by The Leaping Bunny Program and vegan by The Vegan Society.
Our commitment encompasses everything from our inbound packaging to our outbound packaging. From our bottles and boxes to our sourcing, ingredients and processing.
