As artisan producers of natural and organic beauty products, it is our company ethos to make it as easy as possible to be healthy and green in everyday life. We truly respect our incredible planet and are always looking for new ways to be green.
At Evolve Beauty, we choose to use recycled packaging for all of our products. Our glass bottles are made from fully recyclable glass and we use recycled card for all of our cartons. When it comes to plastic, we opt for 75% to 100% recycled PET plastic, which (unlike PVC) is fully recyclable and if it is put into landfill, it doesn't leach any chemicals into the soil. Additionally, every piece of card we use (from packaging to marketing materials) is FSC (Forest Sustainability Certified).
Whilst it may look gorgeous, we avoid using foiling on our packaging and marketing materials, as this unfortunately cannot be recycled. We also avoid sampling our products in single use sachets for this reason. Our labels and packaging are printed using non-toxic soy and vegetable-based inks.
We encourage our customers and our artisans to recycle everything we can, and we’re always on the lookout for new ways in which we can reuse or upcycle our used product packaging!
We are currently looking for hygienic and environmentally friendly ways in which we can refill our products for our lovely customers. We currently don’t have the resources for this, but will offer this service as the company grows.
We buy natural and organic ingredients from as close to home as possible and from fair trade and sustainable sources. We choose to buy our exotic active ingredients in powder form, so that they don’t transport excess water and only ship the core ingredients.
Whilst our artisans are always full of energy, we try to limit other forms of energy usage on-site in our studio. This includes the energy we use to produce, transport and sell our products to our customers.
We try to make our products in an energy-efficient way, encouraging our team to switch off equipment and replacing less-efficient equipment.
We do our best to avoid unnecessary travel, through using public transport, carpools and where possible, arranging telephone and video conference meetings, rather than face-to-face.
At our studio, we only use reusable crockery and cutlery, rather than disposable items, and we minimise paper printing where possible.
All of our products are both cruelty-free and suitable for vegans, which means that no animals are harmed at any stage of our business.
