Sustainability That Goes Beyond Skin Deep

Sustainability That Goes Beyond Skin Deep

Our guiding philosophy at Luxe Botanics has always been Nature to Nurture. It’s what we set out to do when on the hunt to find the intersection between science and nature. And it’s what drives us every single day to source only the finest, nutrient-rich core botanicals for healthier skin.

For us, sustainability is the code we live by. Every step of the way is completed with intention and care — from harvesting each rare and natural ingredient, to the conscious innovation we use in production methods, all the way to ensuring every component of our packaging is able to be recycled — no step is unaccounted for and no waste is left behind. You might say, it makes our world go round (in every sense!).

 

But what exactly is sustainability?

Shall we start from the beginning...

Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations. [1]

 

Ok, sounds promising. But what about the benefits?

  • Reduces waste and your impact on the environment
  • Saves natural resources
  • Addresses social issues and improves the livelihood of individuals and communities
  • Saves money on the life of your products
  • Creates work for local suppliers
  • Creates a market for sustainable goods to help the economy grow and creates more jobs [2]

 

The berry that keeps on giving.

For superberry botanical, Camu camu, our pursuit for sustainability starts at the source. Organically grown, as with our other core botanics Marula and Kigelia, Camu is hand-picked with extreme care (figuratively and literally) for its ability to benefit humans, nature and is at the top of its class when it comes to Vitamin C and broad-spectrum antioxidants, warranting its title as nature’s brightening powerhouse.

Sure, the power of this beauty is evident after giving it a try for yourself, but what is hard to see at a bottle’s glance is the home-hitting effects on the communities who harvest it as well as the environment they protect and nurture for future generations. Through our partnership with NGO Fitovida we’re able to provide specialized education and training to the local communities in Brazil so they can safely explore the country’s biodiversity. Our efforts ensure continued use of the Brazilian biome in a safe and sustainable way. All in a day’s work, for a fair-trade wage. Now that’s enough to brighten anyone’s day!

As you can see, our mantra of Nature to Nurture has deep roots and our mission (should you choose to accept) is to spread this throughout the world. We’re so happy you could join us for the ride because we’re just getting started.

 

Naturally yours,

The Luxe Botanics Team
