Made responsibly, we are committed to working in harmony with the ecosystems from which we benefit.
Working in partnership with our suppliers to implement responsible manufacturing and production practices, that minimise disruption to the natural world. For example, our design process starts by thinking about the end life of an item and its recyclability to help us choose how it is packaged.
We are the first luxury beauty brand to use compostable packaging made from mycelium - a farm-grown material using the roots of a mushroom that composts fully in around 90 days.
Mycelium is the vegetative root structure of a mushroom which is grown around a mould and forms a custom-sized, secure structure. To make the product stronger, locally sourced agricultural waste such as corn and barley husks are added to the mycelium. The final packaging quite literally grows around its mould in a matter of days.
1. It begins with AGRICULTURAL waste
Agricultural waste, such as corn and barley husks are collected from farmers, then sorted and cleaned. The mixture is ground before the start of the Mycelium growing process.
2. Adding MYCELIUM
The root system of mushrooms, mycelium, is added to the mix of agricultural waste. It acts as nature’s glue to bind it together around a mould.
3. MUSHROOM material
After a few days of growth it is placed in a heat press to remove any excess moisture and prevent further mycelium growth. When dry the material can be removed from the mould and is ready to use.
The material is fully biodegradable, but won’t start to degrade unless it is exposed to the right conditions. This packaging can be composted and the mycelium will break down in about a month. As soon as it is exposed to regular moisture it will disappear without
Our Bath Collection is made from aluminium which can be recycled directly back into itself, over and over again. A truly closed loop.
We offer 1 litre aluminium refills for our Hand Wash and Lotion. Keep the aesthetic of our 300ml and top up, and up and up.
We use fully recyclable paper which can be recycled in local facilities / your home recycling bin.
We do not use any glazing or embossing on our packaging which would interfere with its ability to be recycled.
We partner with scientists, innovators, growers and formulators who share our principles.
We make our outer packaging in the UK, in small scale batches to reduce wastage.
We are proud to be working with artisan potters in Stoke-on-Trent, the home of English ceramics to create our stoneware packaging.
Our product manufacturers use a complete biomass system which removes our heating dependency on fossil fuels, saving 85 tonnes of carbon every year.
Our respect for nature and the environment drives us to formulate products that work at nature's speed and with an appreciation of time.
We grow using biodynamic principles guided by the rhythms and cycles of the earth, sun, moon and stars.
Detailed astronomical information tells our growers the best time to sow, cultivate and harvest at the market garden on the Heckfield Estate.
Since 2021 we have harvested Calendula, Chamomile, Rose, Lemon Verbena and Cucumber to make into Hydrolats, extractions and macerations to bring energy, vibrancy, vitality and healthy to our formulations
