By giving back to environmental causes through donating 1% of our profits, we are taking a step towards lessening our footprint. We are not perfect, but we are taking a step. Where possible we use sustainable sources for our ingredients such as palm oil and some organic ingredients, but we aim to do better at this in the future, because we know it depends on all of us doing our bit wherever we can to ensure a healthy future for our grandchildren.
Our packaging is 85% recyclable, all our plastic bottles and lids are made from 100% recyclable PET, we use no bleached stock in our therapy range and all other outer packaging is recyclable. Our dispatch department uses only recyclable packing material in all our freight whether local or international. We are committed to making responsible decisions that will ensure we leave the smallest footprint possible. We know we're not perfect, but we aim to improve wherever we can. We are currently looking at introducing more refilling options into our core ranges, finding a recyclable tube option and new measures of reducing the amount of packaging around our products.
