Slowing your stride: A closer look at sustainability
We all know the virtues of slow and sustainable living, especially in the space of beauty and skincare. With the profusion of products and tall claims, the consumer is bound to be bombarded with messaging and be triggered to purchase more than what is needed. Sustainability is not just about using best natural skincare products, but also being mindful of where they come from, the role of all the ingredients in a product, where are they being sourced from and an eye on wastage throughout the journey of the product from creation, packaging to reaching the consumer.

- We use recyclable and reusable packaging for the products, ensuring that there is less waste created in the journey of the product.
A commitment to considered usage and sustainable choices in the skincare industry is much
needed by brands and users. Even the smallest effort makes a collectively large impact on
the earth. With mindful choices, we can together impact the environment and our own
health. It’s as simple as choosing the right product that is effective for you, and made with a
