Glowcurrant Booster is the world’s first carbon negative skincare product*.
With an impressive -5.9g of CO2e per product, Glowcurrant Booster saves the equivalent carbon emissions created by charging an iPhone11 twice.
*Due to its unique, first-to-market production methods. Glowcurrant Booster’s carbon footprint is negative because it is made using low-carbon ingredients and sequesters carbon throughout its supply chain from cradle-to-gate. It does not rely on or involve any carbon offsetting.
Ingredients All of Glowcurrant Booster’s ingredients are from the UK and 87% of the formulation is upcycled, a by-product of the juicing industry. Upcycling negates the need for a secondary supply chain to grow the seeds in order to access the oil, meaning there’s no doubling up and therefore dramatically reduced energy consumption.
The white willow bark used in Glowcurrant Booster is from Castle Farm, Herefordshire UK. Harvested by hand, it grows in abundance, and was originally planted to encourage biodiversity near a stream- supporting insect populations.
Packaging: From cap to carton, Glowcurrant Booster’s innovative packaging truly sets a new standard for eco-minded brands:
Compostable cap: The booster boasts a new-to-market Vivomer cap and nozzle, that uses bacteria abundant in both marine and soil environments. At the end of its life, these microbes see it as a food source and consume the cap, meaning it degrades in normal environments without emitting greenhouse gases or leaving behind any microplastics. In at home compost the cap will eat itself within 52 weeks and in general waste the cap will be gone within 3 years.
Sugarcane bottle & carton: A carbon negative material that is 100% recyclable. The carton is made from a unique tree-free paper with a natural finish that does not use whitening or dying chemicals, saving 12.6% energy and 13% water vs bleached sugarcane.
Did you know? Sugarcane sequesters carbon: for every 1kg of sugarcane grown, 3kgs of carbon are absorbed from the atmosphere.
Production: Manufactured using 100% green energy, mainly wind (70%) and solar (10%).
