Along with producing effective, high quality, plant based skin care products one of our top goals is to be as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible while growing our company. When Viriskin was just an idea, there were specific sustainability goals that we knew must be tackled before we could launch. Improvement is never ending (in a good way) and neither is our sustainability journey. Check out our list below for what steps we took to have the most sustainable launch we could and how we plan to improve over time!
Viriskin has partnered with We Are Neutral to fund carbon offset projects in order to counteract the negative impact of running a business and be carbon neutral!
Everything from our boxes, filling material, tape, and shipping labels all are made with recycled content!
Fun fact: The filling we use in our shipments is made from all the cardboard we get from deliveries that we perforate ourselves!
This one was HARD! It took months and delayed the launch twice to find a source of 100% post consumer recycled aluminum bottles.
⸙ Print our product information directly onto the bottles so we no longer need a label
⸙ Initiate a send back and refill program for all of our bottles
⸙ Distill our own water, eliminating the need to have water delivered
⸙ Run the facility and manufacturing entirely on renewable energy
⸙ Fit the facility with automatic lights and temperature controls
⸙ Implement a digital documentation system to make manufacturing paperless
⸙ Offset the carbon emissions for employees homes and travel.
⸙ Collect rainwater to use for production processes like heating and cooling batches.
⸙ Produce zero landfill waste, 100% of all waste will be reused or recycled!
