A note from founder, Hillary Peterson,
Taking care of people and the planet is at the heart of True Botanicals and is what I find the most rewarding. Our commitment to sustainability is as uncompromising as our commitment to your health and we are leading the way with a holistic approach that addresses the daunting challenges facing the health of our planet from every angle. Because every detail makes a big difference!
From how ingredients are grown, processed and preserved to the safety of our products as a whole, to our environmentally friendly packaging – we consider how to secure a more sustainable future at every step.
Innovations continuously pave the way for improvements and we wanted to share this journey with you so we will be reaching out quarterly to share new sustainability initiatives and accomplishments.
I am endlessly grateful for our passionate True Botanicals community. Together, we are making a meaningful difference!
Key Goals Met in Q1 2022
- 100% RSPO Certified Palm Oil
In partnership with RSPO, the leading organization for sustainable Palm Oil, we certified that all Palm Oil used by True Botanicals is responsibly sourced from ethical, safe and sustainable farms. This was a huge feat and extremely important because conventional Palm Oil production is a major contributor to deforestation
- 100% Recyclable & FSC Paper Packaging
We completed our transition to new packaging, which uses the most universally recyclable form of glass and FSC certified paper, which supports sustainable forestry!
- Launched 2 New Made-Safe Products
We launched two NEW skincare products, Chebula Extreme Cream and Phyto-Retinol Vitamin A Booster, and both were certified by Made Safe to be safe for people and the planet. MADE SAFE is the most comprehensive safety certification available, backed by some of the world’s leading scientists.
We Focused on Sourcing from Sustainable, Regenerative Farms
We formulated with sustainable, regenerative farmed Calendula Oil in both of our new products: Chebula Extreme Cream & Phyto-Retinol Vitamin A Booster.
We prioritize regenerative farming because it is one of the single most important practices needed to combat climate change. Regenerative farming pulls carbon out of the atmosphere, regenerates groundwater supply, and nourishes the soil. Better yet, because regenerative farms have the healthiest soil, and the healthiest soil grows the most nutrient-dense plants, they provide us with the most potent botanicals for our skincare!
At True Botanicals we are on a mission to deliver clean and sustainable products that are clinically proven to work at the highest levels standards. We ethically source vegan ingredients from the vibrant intelligence of nature, without any toxins or fillers, ever. Every scoop, spritz and slather is a sensorial, indulgent experience that can make an extraordinary difference for your skin, as well as the planet.
