It's estimated that the beauty industry generates about 120 billion units of packaging every year. Beauty packaging is filling up our landfills. We all need to reduce, reuse and recycle because it takes each piece of plastic 400 years to biodegrade.
At i.anka-eo we make organic skin care products without chemicals and without water. We are always looking for ways to decrease our impact on the environment while providing skin care that gives our users tangible results.
All of our products are packed in glass bottles with glass pipettes which are 100% recyclable and reusable. Our bottle labels are made from 100% recycled paper and are made to be easily removed in case you'd like to reuse the bottle yourself. We purposely did not make a product box because, because we use small shipping boxes stuffed with recycled crinkle paper to ensure the safe shipping and handling.
As we grow, we are always looking for ways in which our packaging can be upcycled or made even more sustainable.
We believe keeping the chemicals off your skin is not only good for you, but it's also good for the environment. All of our ingredients are Soil Association Certified Organic and our suppliers are all UK based. Where possible we also purchase several of our ingredients directly from small organic growers in the UK. We believe in supporting our local growers and manufacturers as much as possible so all of our packaging is produced in the UK.
We love boasting that we do NOT test any of our products on animals (that's wrong), we only test our products on people. We do not use any animal based ingredients and are suitable for vegans.
When we started blending and selling, experts warned that blending by hand would be "impossible to scale" and we were encouraged to embrace a large manufacturing model…but we decided to do it anyway! We believe in the added value of precise hand and small batch blending to ensure that you get the purest and freshest blends every time.
