Great skincare should not come at a cost to our planet. We’re continuing our crusade against carbon emissions and our goal of becoming a carbon negative beauty brand. Here’s how Strawberry Booster makes a difference:
We love upcycled ingredients and use them in over 50% of the range. Our strawberry seed oil is an upcycled ingredient from the juicing industry. We use the strawberry seeds that are removed prior to juicing and would normally be discarded into landfill. They are thoroughly steralised and then cold pressed, to produce a high quality oil that’s an amazing skincare ingredient.
Upcycling negates the need for a secondary supply chain to grow the fruit in order to access the seeds (at which point the pulp would be discarded), meaning there’s no doubling up and therefore dramatically reduced energy consumption.
The oil is cold-pressed to order, so there’s no waste, and it’s a low carbon process too. Glass printed with biodegradable plant based ink that does not interfere with the recycling process.
Carton, glass bottle and glass stem of pipette are all eligible for local recycling. We recommend with all products and packaging to REDUCE the amount you use, REUSE what you can, and only then, make sure you RECYCLE.
