At Wildsmith Skin we love conversations with our customers – your reaction to our products help to shape everything we do. To create our sustainable gifts this year we looked to our greatest resource for inspiration – you! Five gift sets centred around your favourite products in BioCompostable packaging.
Our limited edition packaging design takes inspiration from leaves gathered in the woodland on the Heckfield Estate in Hampshire, England - a landscape moulded by the horticulturist William Walker Wildsmith in the late nineteenth century.
Our five gift sets come packaged in fully BioCompostable Mycelium, part of our commitment to make simple steps to a better and more sustainable environment. We are extremely proud to be one of the first luxury beauty brands to use this packaging. To reduce any unnecessary waste these gifts are only made in small batches, ensuring that supply meets demand.

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 a trace.
