We believe that the beauty industry can go ‘Full Circle’ and look again at reusing existing materials, but from plant origin; ensuring we can not only produce innovative and sustainable ingredients, but also reduce our footprint on the planet by making better use of the resources that are already available.

NO NEW RESOURCES : We’re out to prove that the industry can thrive solely by ‘upcycling’ existing materials

NO SMALL PACK SURCHARGES : Reduce waste and order to your exact batch size

NOTHING TO LANDFILL : It’s already full enough
