Botanics commitments

 

Born in the heart of the UK in 1995, Botanics was created with the pioneering vision that high quality natural beauty products should be accessible to all. Our passion is plants. Our philosophy is grounded in our heritage and rooted in our belief in the restorative power of plants to improve the world that we live in. All Botanics products are formulated with honesty, integrity and transparency from natural, ethically sourced and sustainable ingredients, without compromise. We are passionately committed to not testing on animals, so all of our products are tested on humans and suitable for vegetarians. We contribute to our consumers’ tomorrow by protecting the world we live in, reducing our impact on the environment whenever and wherever we can.

 

 
Botanics cruelty free international

CRUELTY FREE INTERNATIONAL

Botanics are 100% cruelty free and against animal testing. With an impressive list of ethical credentials already under our belt, all of our skincare and beauty products have now been approved under the Cruelty Free International ‘Leaping Bunny’ programme.

 

The ‘Leaping Bunny’ is a globally recognised gold standard for cruelty free beauty products that goes above and beyond legal requirements. It is the only internationally recognised cruelty free license that requires a supplier monitoring system to be implemented by the brand. The supply chain is checked for any sign of animal testing right down to ingredient manufacture level, so our customers are safe in the knowledge that the legitimacy of any cruelty free claim is genuine.

Botanics sustainable raw materials

SUSTAINABLE RAW MATERIALS

All Botanics products are certified Organic and suitable for vegetarians, with all but five of our products suitable for vegans – these five products contain Organic beeswax. As pioneers of Organic beauty, our Organic franchise uses a minimum of 80% Organic ingredients. The remaining content of non-Organic ingredients are used to keep our products the way you love them. We only use only the highest quality efficacious plant extracts that are sustainably sourced and fully traceable from around the world.

Botanics acting on plastics

ACTING ON PLASTIC

In a pioneering step, in 2015, ahead of legislation, Botanics removed all microbeads from our rinse-off products.

 

We carefully consider all of our packaging to ensure that it is best for our products while minimising its impact upon the environment. Where possible, we strive to reduce unnecessary plastic and consciously design all our packaging without any secondary packing, with reusability and recyclability in mind, as well as maximising the use of recycled materials.

 

We already include 25% post-consumer recycled material in our plastic packaging and we are working tirelessly to improve this, with the ambition for all our plastic packaging to be 100% reusable or recyclable by 2025. We do not use any carbon black ink to colour our plastic packaging, as this cannot be detected in the recycling process. 

 

All of our paper and board is also 100% responsibly sourced and Forest Stewardship Council certified.

Botanics ethical sourcing and supplier sustainability

ETHICAL SOURCING & SUPPLIER SUSTAINABILITY

All of the raw ingredients we use are traceable back to the last country of manufacture, and we are committed to building transparent, trusting relationships with our growers and farmers, ensuring that the quality of our ingredients is as high as possible. Our preferred suppliers are those who deliver consistency, with known origin and proven efficacy.

 

We are passionate about upholding human rights for our workers and suppliers. Due to the transparency and traceability that we demand from our supply chain, we are able to monitor the manufacturing environment so that we can enforce fair working conditions and protect the communities who support us.

 

We are proud to say that we are constantly working to improve our impact on the environment. Waste reduction and climate action are of utmost importance to us and wherever possible, we endeavour to reduce our carbon footprint and our impact on the environment at every step of the product journey.
