As a brand, we believe it is important to take responsibility for people and the environment. That's why we work every day to be a sustainable skincare brand from the Netherlands. Below you will find at each step of the process how we approach sustainable production.
When you order a product from us, we want every part of the packaging to have a destination. You are left with nothing. Unfortunately, we are not perfect, but we try to make choices that are as sustainable as possible in all areas.
If you order through our webshop, we naturally want to show that we have a sustainable skin care brand in the Netherlands to be. Your products are protected in the shipping box (70% recycled and uncolored cardboard) with 100% compostable and biodegradable protective material. We tailor the rolling paper in the package. This minimizes waste and you can reuse it - for example for drying flowers. The sticker with which the blotting paper is sealed is also made of paper with the FSC quality mark. These are printed with soy-based ink which makes it a lot more environmentally friendly.
Also nice: the card that we include is made of growing paper. Plant it in the soil and grow a beautiful summer bouquet. If you have your Sara Rosalie package delivered to one of the big thirty cities in the Netherlands, we will deliver with the green initiative Fietskoeriers.nl. Outside of that, we deliver with DHL, one carrier with sustainable goals.
We use ingredients of natural origin that are Ecocert Approved. The balms we launched in 2019 are Allergy Certified. This quality mark guarantees that the products are safe for everyone, including pregnant women and babies, the risk of irritation is limited to a minimum and that there is no risk of developing an allergy.
We bring products into the world and therefore carry the responsibility to keep that world in mind in everything we do. One of those things we care about, is our partnership with 1% for the planet. Every year, 1% of our total income goes towards a non-profit organisation that partners with 1% for the planet and works hard to take care of our planet.
Our products are 100% cruelty free and we never test on animals. As a sustainable skin care brand in the Netherlands, we produce locally. Because the less transport the better. In this way we also remain involved in the quality and transparency of the production process. The finishing of the products, the sticking of the labels and the processing of the boxes around the jars are done in a sheltered workshop in the east of the Netherlands.
We are proud that we have been able to make so many sustainable choices in our short existence and will continue to do so at every step in the process.
I hope this gives you an idea of how we work and how we try to take responsibility as a skin care brand. Please let me know how you see it via @sararosalie.
