Welcome to Herbaria, where beauty isn’t just skin-deep; it’s earth-deep. We’re not your average skincare brand – we’re a rebellion against the plastic-laden beauty industry, a movement towards a greener, cleaner, and more conscious way of pampering yourself. In this blog, we’ll spill the tea on our commitment to sustainability, our plastic-neutral journey with The Disposal Company, and why our refillable and reusable packaging is the game-changer your beauty routine needs.
The Plastic Predicament: Beauty’s Hidden Villain
Let’s face it: the beauty industry has been drowning in plastic pollution for far too long. A single-use plastic bottle can last forever, haunting our planet like a beauty ghost. We decided it was time to break up with plastic and craft a line of products that not only make you glow but also make the planet shine.
The statistics are staggering – 120 billion units of beauty packaging annually, contributing to 70% of the industry’s waste. At Herbaria, we refuse to be a part of this problem. We’ve created a range of vegan, cruelty-free, and plastic-free products that not only nurture your skin but also leave no trace of plastic waste behind.
Nature in a Bottle: Eco-Conscious Ingredients
At Herbaria, our commitment to nature goes beyond just the packaging. Our products are like a stroll through a botanical garden – real pressed flowers, FSSAI-certified colors, and fragrances that are phthalate-free. We’ve banished microbeads and turned to natural alternatives like cellulose beads, fruit seeds, shells, flowers, and herbs for that gentle exfoliation your skin craves.
Glass Jars: The Earth’s Best Friend
Say goodbye to single-use plastics and hello to our sturdy glass jars. Glass is not only recyclable but can be recycled infinitely without losing its quality. In comparison, plastic takes centuries to decompose. By transitioning to glass, we’re aiming to slash our plastic footprint by 30%-60%. It’s a small change for us, a giant leap for the planet.
Eco-Friendly Luxury in a Refill Pack
Recycling myths busted: Only 9% of the world’s plastic scrap gets a second life. That’s where our refill packs come in. Choosing a refill over a new product saves 70% CO2, 40% water, and 65% energy. For an industry creating 120 million units of packaging yearly, refills are our way of saying, “Let’s not add to the plastic party.”
Certified Plastic Neutral: Because Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Herbaria proudly wears the badge of a Certified Plastic Neutral Brand. We’ve partnered with The Disposal Company to achieve a 97% plastic-free ecosystem. While we’re not claiming to be perfect, our sustainability parameters are the first step, and we’re in it for the long haul. Our refilling module ensures we cut down on plastic use, and whatever plastic slips through, we offset by recycling five times that amount.
What’s in a Name: The Essence of Herbaria
Derived from ‘herbarium,’ our name embodies our mission – to preserve nature’s gifts and bring them closer to you. Herbaria isn’t just a brand; it’s a commitment to a greener, cleaner future.
