Environmental Commitment
When we started our business in 2002, one of our requirements was to keep our impact on the environment minimal. Back then, there weren't many eco-friendly choices for packaging, or anything else for that matter. We started by choosing glass bottles and aluminum tins instead of the standard plastic bottles and jars commonly used in the beauty industry. As we grew, and more opportunities for change became available, we were able to replace conventional practices one by one, such as switching to 100% recycled materials for shipping, and sourcing lip balm tubes made from 100% recycled plastic.

Today, we are still just as committed to the environment as we were in the beginning, and continue to look for ways to grow and improve. The earth is the only home we have, and we all need to pitch in and take care of it.
