Our vendors are giving us the whole package -- creating products that are good for the skin as well as the environment.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 31, 2008
In a world of green wannabes, SkinBotanica.com, the largest online retailer of natural and organic skin care, is putting its money where its mouth is by choosing to sell only natural and organic products from ecologically conscious companies.
"We consider it beauty with a conscience," says Kristy Taylor, founder of SkinBotanica.com. "Our vendors are giving us the whole package -- creating products that are good for the skin as well as the environment."
While all brands that SkinBotanica features are committed to using only natural, and often organic, ingredients in their products, each company varies in their level ecologically conscious activity.
Many of the companies extend their environmental concern to their packaging. For example, Juice Beauty, uses 100% recyclable materials and soy-based ink.
Some companies continue their green behavior with their production of materials as well. Eminence Organic Skin Care uses only solar, geothermal and wind power for its facilities offices and hybrid vehicles for its couriers.
But the concern doesn't stop there, companies like Dr.Hauschka, manufactured by WALA Heilmittel, support initiatives in developing parts of the world to encourage economic self-sufficiency. In fact, all the Shea Butter used in Dr.Hauschka's formulations is produced in Burkina Faso, Africa, where WALA helped local women establish sustainable agricultural cooperatives.
"We're hoping to show our customers that we're not only in support of natural alternatives for skin care and cosmetics, but also companies who go above and beyond to support the Earth," Taylor said.
