Well, it’s the time of year when everyone is buying presents for friends and family, US TOO, but this year seems a bit different here at i.anka-eo and not for the reasons you’d think.

You see, we’ve made some strides this year to become even more sustainable.  We launched our fully recyclable bottle, while also being able to pass a savings a long to our customers.  As well, we have slowly phased out plastic tape…  even our tape is now plant based and biodegradable. 

 

So, when customers started asking if we would gift wrap their orders for presents, we weren’t sure of how to handle it.  Of course, we could go ahead and add that as a service…  Gift Wrapping £2.... that would have been very easy to get going.  Especially during this time of Covid-19, where gifts are going straight to their recipients. 

However, we just couldn't do it.  We have spent so much time and effort intentionally NOT having a product box, switching to plant based (and plastic free) tape and having a fully recyclable bottle, could we throw it all away for £2 and happy customers?

Obviously NOT!  

We knew that we would figure out a way to make our existing packaging into something that looked and felt like a gift!  So as part of our standard service, when you include a gift message with your order, we add a recyclable gift tag to your package.  It will be done by hand and fully recyclable like all the rest of our packaging… and best of all there’s no up charge. 

From our family to yours, we hope you have a happy holiday season.  Also, here’s hoping that your skin will be blemish free and glowing into the New Year!

As always, we advocate for a sustainable skin care routine, free of chemicals because we believe that having great skin shouldn't wreck the planet or mess with your body.  Instead using what the earth has given us can enhance and protect the skin we already have.  Would you like to read more?  Here are some of our most popular blogs:
