When creating each product for The Beauty of Eczema™ I have worked with experts to ensure they are as planet friendly as possible. As a brand we work with a variety of suppliers and we only choose to work with those suppliers who share our values.
All our skincare packaging is recyclable. Our tubes, bottles, jars and lids are made from single use plastic which are widely recyclable. Our cartons are supplied by a mill with its own forest, and they replant trees to replace what they harvest. The mill has a platinum award from Ecovardis https://ecovadis.com for sustainability and runs on green energy. It’s powered with more than 90% biomass energy and supplies surplus green energy back to the UK National Grid. We are very aware of the growing concern around skincare packaging and continue to look to improve our packaging as advancements are made in the area and new improved alternatives become available.
Our warehouse uses sustainable packaging with recycled cardboard boxes, paper shipping tape and recyclable packing paper. The warehouse uses low power LED lighting, and the handheld scanner system means they operate a paperless admin system saving 540,000 sheets of paper each year.
Our books and journal are supplied through a print on demand service. This means the books are only printed at the time of sale and are usually printed in the country where your order is placed which reduces our carbon footprint. We also offer a range of digital products which gives you the option to download and edit them electronically or print at home if you wish.
Our affirmation cards are made from FSC certified sustainable, responsibly forestry and the manufacturing facility is powered by solar energy.
As a team we use the cloud for storage, file sharing and print documents only when essential. We’ve used Zoom from before the brand launch to save meeting travel time which also reduces our CO2 emissions and have embraced remote team working from the start.
We are mindful of how we work as a brand and we are committed to do everything we can to make a positive impact on people and the planet.
