Caring for the environment
In an age in which we are increasingly concerned about our planet’s health, values such as sustainability, natural origin, safety, and transparency inform and drive people’s choice of beauty products worldwide. And with more and more consumers adopting healthier lifestyles, natural beauty products are becoming an integral part of caring for our appearance, overall well-being and the environment.
As a Natural Beauty Care manufacturer, we are gentle on the earth and its creatures, by not using harsh chemicals like silicone's, sulpates and parabens and by addressing sustainability.
As an Industry, we have to take responsibility for the well-being of the planet. Going Green or Natural is one thing, but more importantly we must protect Mother Earth by doing our part.
Rising levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) are of significant concern in modern society.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has reported to the United Nations that the Earth's climate system is undoubtedly getting warmer and concluded that it is more than 90 percent likely that the accelerated warming of the past 50-60 years is due to human contributions.
One indirect benefit of using recycled product is major reduction in CO2 emission. Using recycled resins uses 85% less energy and emits 75% fewer greenhouse gases than the production of virgin resin. As the levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gasses increase, more heat is “trapped” in the earth's atmosphere and global temperatures rise. It causes significant changes in the timing and length of the seasons as well as the amount and frequency of precipitation. Climate change can have effects on rising sea levels, flooding, droughts or a range of other ecosystem changes that affect life on earth.
Recycling is one of the best ways to have a positive impact on the world in which we live.
When we recycle, used materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural resources. If used materials are not recycled, new products are made by extracting fresh, raw materials from the earth, through mining and forestry. Recycling helps conserve important raw materials and protects natural habitats for the future.
Environmental sustainability implies the maintenance of natural resources, products using environmentally-friendly formulations, production practices or packaging methods and long-term ecological balance.
With respect to the cosmetics industry, “green” and “sustainable” cosmetics are defined as cosmetic products using natural ingredients produced from renewable raw materials. Many companies use petrochemical ingredients derived from petrol, a non-renewable and economically volatile resource.
We are doing our part in achieving this such as sustainable sourcing of raw ingredients, energy consumption, waste management and carbon footprint of the whole production chain— from manufacture to packaging, to distribution — biodegradability and lack of human and environmental toxicity and corporate social responsibility in terms of inclusion, fairness and equal opportunities.
Donating to a Charitable Foundation
When you purchase an Ocean and Earth product, you select one of three Organization's of your choice. Donating to a Charitable Foundation or a favorite cause displays the best of human nature, but most of all we are giving back.
