Soil Association certified skincare brand, Botanicals, has announced its Plastics Promise. The promise will see the company support the use of environmentally-friendly ingredients and packaging.
“I am passionate about the benefits of using natural, organic skincare – for our health and beauty but also for our planet,” Wendy Stirling, founder of Botanicals says. “Botanicals uses strict performance and ethical standards, which I’m extremely proud of. At Botanicals, we are not prepared to compromise, either the integrity of our brand or the ingredients or packaging we use.”
The promise sees the following three principles:
- Botanicals Skincare: all products are 100% natural and fully biodegradable, and will not plastic particles, microbeads or derivatives.
- Botanicals Packaging: glass jars and bottles are used wherever possible, with the only exception when glass is not suitable for use. In those instances, Botanicals only uses PET, polyethylene terephthalate, a plastic resin and a form of polyester that’s recyclable.
- Botanicals Postal Packaging: Botanicals is also committed to using eco-fill compostable loose fill packaging, paper tape and bubble wrap that’s made from recycled polythene and is recyclable after use.
