Sustainability

Eco beauty with a soul

Native Essentials goes beyond using premium 100% plant-based ingredients and powerful latest generation natural active ingredients. Our products are sustainable from the ingredients and suppliers' sourcing to its final packaging. 

 

 

Ecocert

Native Essentials products are made in Thailand by an Ecocert Certified Lab. Ecocert certifies not only organic ingredients but also the best environmentally friendly and socially conscious practices. 

This certification also ensures that the ingredients we use never include: 

  • Parabens, silicones or other controversial ingredients
  • GMO ingredients
  • Synthetic colors, fragrances or thickeners

Ingredients and Suppliers

We work only with sustainable, ethical sources, and most of our ingredients are certified organic and are fully tested. Whenever possible, we source locally and our active ingredients are ECOCERT, COSMOS, SOIL ASSOCIATION and ACO certified. The result? Products that deliver pure potency – and zero synthetics.

Cruelty-Free and Vegan

Native Essentials works exclusively with certified cruelty-free suppliers and labs.

We do not test our products on animals (and never will) and we are not present in markets with mandatory animal testing for skincare.

We believe in clean, organic skincare that works with your skin by stimulating it to protect and regenerate itself naturally. This can only happen with formulas that use 100% plant-based ingredients. 

At Native Essentials we only use botanical ingredients and never:

  • Beeswax
  • Lanolin
  • Animal-derived colorants
  • Goat or cow's milk
  • Retinoids from fish and eggs

We don’t use endangered plants and Palm oil

Every year CITES publishes a list of endangered flora and fauna. Sadly, the list gets longer and longer every year. At Native Essentials, we never purchase endangered plant extracts like Rosewood, Russian Ginseng, Baobab from Madagascar, Himalayan Spikenard, or Indian Agarwood,... because the safeguard of biodiversity is our priority. And we say no to Palm oil.

Fully Recyclable Packaging

Our jars and bottles are made of clear glass, which is the easiest color type of glass to recycle and also the least water-consuming (as opposed to dark glass bottles with UV protection that can’t be recycled as they contain a high concentration of lead). All bottles and jars are refillable and reusable.

The plastic pumps, the lids and sample testers are made 100% recyclable plastic (#5 polypropylene). To recycle it, all you need to do is to separate the bits, which are really easy on our packaging. 

The droppers are made of silicone, which means it has a lower chance of leaching chemicals. Also, when burned, silicone reverts back into its harmless ingredients: amorphous silica, carbon dioxide, and water vapor.
