At Sukin our tagline and focus are simple. Skincare that doesn’t cost the earth™ isn’t merely a commitment to affordable products, but also to the creation of beautiful skincare at minimal cost to our precious environment.
How do we achieve this? By thinking and acting sustainably wherever possible.
This means achieving carbon neutral status by offsetting all of our emissions from product manufacture to office operations.
Whilst bottles and boxes and packets can certainly be attractive, the less attractive side is that they can end up contributing to land fill. Sukin uses recyclable packaging, and ensures that packaging is kept to a minimum where possible.
Sukin’s ‘no nasties’ approach helps to keep both our bodies and our environment healthy. Without the inclusion of harsh detergents, propylene glycol, sulphates and more, Sukin formulations are grey water safe, so you can feel confident that what you are using is not going to damage our rivers, animals and plant life once it heads down the drain.
Using plant-based ingredients, Sukin formulations are also biodegradable, avoiding build up and contamination in our waterways. Sukin’s face and body scrubs are free from micro plastic beads, and employ only the best natural and biodegradeable exfoliants.
As a 100% vegan brand, Sukin is committed to creating products that are free from animal testing, animal derivatives, and animal by-products.
As a business, our overall objective is to work towards sustainable and efficient business practices.
On the issue of palm derived ingredients, the derivatives used in some of our products are used solely as we are currently unable to find any other ingredient that replicates their performance or that when split/fractionated can deliver the same result. We choose not to use the alternative options of animal derivatives.
Our pursuit of sustainable business practices is ongoing and we are constantly exploring options.
