About Climate Neutral Certification

Wherever you see the Climate Neutral Certified label, it means the company is accountable for its greenhouse gas emissions. To earn the label, a company must annually measure cradle-to-customer emissions, implement specific action plans to reduce emissions, and invest in high quality, verified carbon credits.

The certification requirements are detailed in the rigorous, peer-reviewed Climate Neutral Certified Standard. Each company’s application is reviewed for compliance by Change Climate’s certification team.

We strongly believe in reducing our footprint and doing our part to help preserve our planet. We are proud to be one of the first natural skincare brands to introduce refillables. Our ingredients come from organic farming practices, which involve less pollution, less soil erosion, and less energy than non-organic harvesting practices. Organic farming practices eliminate the use of synthetic pesticides and nitrogen pollution which benefits water, wildlife, and people. Our packaging uses recycled, recyclable, refillable, or biodegradable materials. All products launched starting in 2021 have been produced in glass or post-consumer recycled resin (PCR) including refill pods. Additionally, unit cartons are made of FSC-cert recycled paper.
