We use recyclable glass and cardboard for our packaging with a commitment to keep plastic to an absolute minimum. We will never package our products in plastic and have introduced an aluminium top option when repurchasing to encourage re-use of our black plastic pumps. Although aluminium has its own issues, it is easily recyclable.
We are extremely passionate about what goes into our products, and just as passionate about what doesn't. We will never ever use any silicones or mineral oil, any palm oil or it's many heavily disguised derivatives. Because silicones are cheap fillers and feel enhancers and we feel they have no place on the skin. Because mineral oil offers zero skin benefit and palm oil has a horrific, heartbreaking environmental impact. Some synthetics can be serious skin sensitisers and hide all sorts of horrors and we believe we can manage excellently without them. Because we believe natural is better. Because we know nature can nurture.
We have chosen to use soy inks for our paper packaging. In comparison to traditional inks, soy-based inks are naturally low in volatile organic compounds, lowering the emissions that cause air pollution.
Soy inks are also much easier to remove during the recycling process. We also use acrylic adhesive for our labels.
Our domains are through a 100% carbon neutral website provider.
Through purchases we make, our postal packing supplier donate to the RAJA-Danièle Marcovici Foundation who support charitable projects, for women, who are at greatest risk of violence, injustice and poverty. Find out more Raja here.
Our Organic Cotton and Bamboo Cleansing Cloths are sewn in Kerala, India by a women's co-op called Gramodia. It is our pleasure to support them.
We choose to make a voluntary carbon offset contribution (printing, ingredient suppliers) whenever possible.
Our commitment to being a socially responsible company is a core value here at Siskyn. These are all small steps, but this is just the beginning.
