Our Sustainability Impact

by Beth Wischnia April 20, 2020

This year, April 22nd marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Instead of spending the day planting trees or doing a beach cleanup, we are sheltering in place—we are inside as the planet recovers outside. Humanity is taking a break and so is the environment. We are all healing.  

Our current reality gives us the opportunity for a fresh perspective and a renewed, deeper appreciation for crisp air, green grass, blue skies, and endless oceans. Now, more than ever is the time to show extra love, gratitude, and kindness to ourselves and the earth. 

Biossance was born out of a desire to make the world a better place. This is truly the heart of our brand. We’re more committed than ever to people and the environment and will continue to prioritize our sustainability initiatives.

BIOSSANCE SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES

  • - SAVING SHARKS 

Did you know that squalene was originally inhumanely harvested from shark liver? Our sustainably sourced, Brazillian sugarcane-derived squalane saves 2 million sharks every year. 

  • - CARBON-NEUTRAL SHIPPING

We’re officially carbon neutral! For each order shipped, we plant trees—which are incredible, natural detoxifiers— and fund reforestation projects at no additional cost to you.

  • - ZERO WASTE BY 2025

We’re offsetting our carbon emissions, developing a packaging return redemption program and reviewing our office paper and plastic consumption. 

  • - CLEAN FORMULATIONS

We ban 2,000+ ingredients that are toxic to both you and the environment. All Biossance products are also EWG VERIFIED™.

  • - GREEN LAB CERTIFICATION

All Biossance formulations are developed in a My Green Lab Platinum Certified facility, reducing our environmental impact with every product we create.

  • - RECYCLABLE PACKAGING 

We’re working toward this by incorporating post-consumer recycled materials into our packaging.

My industry experience includes years as a beauty editor and leading content for a wide range of skincare and makeup brands. Those experiences led me to Biossance—I was introduced to the brand on an editor press trip in 2017 and instantly fell in love. I toured the labs, created my own 100% Squalane with essential oils, and noticed a dramatic difference in my skin by introducing clean products (especially the Vitamin C Rose Oil) to my regimen. I’m excited to be on this journey with Biossance and be at the forefront of clean beauty innovation.
