The LEAFOLOGY range…
- uses only pure, plant-derived ingredients. No synthetic fragrances or colours, and no parabens, petroleum/petro-chemicals, PEGs (Polyethylene Glycol), palm oil, sulphates… Basically, only the good stuff.
- does not support animal testing (see Harvey, left, who only wants to drink his tea in peace). The only ‘guinea pigs’ are me and my obliging family and friends.
- is proudly suitable for vegans; no animal-derived ingredients or processes whatsoever.
- sources raw ingredients as responsibly as possible, buying significantly from a trusted wholesale company that in turn sources from local cooperatives and community projects which care about people and the environment. Keeping on top of the best ways to play a part in environmental ethics and sustainability is an ever-evolving practice; my approach is to try to do as well as possible and respond quickly to any changing information.
LEAFOLOGY chooses environmentally-friendly packaging, avoiding plastic where possible and instead opting for:
…GLASS: A product encapsulated by glass holds its own apothecarial charm on your boudoir table as well as ensuring the natural oils are well protected. The glass is partially recycled and fully recyclable/re-usable after use.
…ALUMINIUM: That funky screw-top, light-blocking, metallic style is both a modern classic and a most-friendly friend of the environment. Aluminium is endlessly recyclable and the process requires only low heat, which helps the carbon footprint. The aluminium packaging used by LEAFOLOGY is often made from 100% recycled material. EPA lining ensures that the product keeps its integrity; no mineral leaching!
The bottles and jars can be re-used by customers at home, or if returned to the point of sale, re-filled at a discounted price.
