Circular skincare is a growing movement in the beauty industry that focuses on using sustainable and ethical practices to reduce waste and promote environmentally friendly skincare products. This approach emphasises the importance of creating a closed-loop system in which resources are reused, recycled, or biodegraded to minimise skincare's impact on the environment.
In the context of skincare, circularity means using sustainable ingredients and packaging materials that can be reused, recycled, or biodegraded. This includes ethically sourced and produced ingredients using sustainable practices, as well as packaging made from recyclable or biodegradable materials. Additionally, circular skincare involves reducing waste and conserving resources by using products responsibly and efficiently.
How does Hark & Zander participate in Circular Skincare?
Hark & Zander is very passionate about sustainable beauty, and all of our decisions are made with sustainability at the forefront. Our ingredients are sourced from ethical producers, and our product formulas are created and filled in a lab right here in Auckland! We ensure that the packaging we use, from the product bottles and labels to the boxes our products are shipped, in are all either recyclable or biodegradable.
Hark & Zander's star ingredient is Hempheart Oil, which comes from the carbon-positive wonder plant - Hemp. Hemp plants condition soil by soaking up carbon and other impurities while adding nutrients back into the ground, regenerating the soil, and helping us leave our planet in a better place than we found it.
