Sustainability Mission Statement

Sustainability is not a destination that can be reached in a day, but Skingredients® is buckled in for the ride. We are on a journey to create a skincare range that is better for your skin and the planet.

The global beauty industry produces 142 billion units of packaging every year.1 That includes over 80 billion plastic bottles that are disposed of annually from just shampoo and conditioner alone.2 But it’s not just the beauty industry that contributes to this ever-growing problem – plastic waste is a global, urgently pressing issue.

A whopping 91% of plastic isn’t recycled,3 and a scary 11 million tons of plastic is predicted to be destined for our beautiful oceans each year according to the United Nations. It’s these frightening facts that inspired us to be part of the solution, not the problem.

Our view is that small changes can make a big impact. There’s no denying that there is a long road ahead of us, but we have a responsibility to be more sustainable and are committed to learning, growing and embracing more earth-conscious innovations. Skingredients has embarked on its “green” journey – and we’re not just talking about Skin Veg!
