Jurlique engages in organic farming and has solar panels on its farm. The farm has sent zero waste to the landfill since 2016, uses recycled water to irrigate its crops, and makes its own compost too.
Dr Hauschka sources from organic, local or fair-trade farms wherever possible. It also initiates biological cultivation projects for ingredients not available organically. The brand has its own biodynamic herb garden and uses 100 per cent certified-green electricity in its operations.
Aveda uses 100 per cent wind energy at its primary manufacturing facility in the United States. It also works with suppliers that use renewable energy to produce its packaging.
Abyssian uses abyssinian oil in its products. The abyssinian plant, sourced from farmers in South Africa, requires less fungicide, fertiliser and water to grow, making it more eco-friendly. The roots are left in the soil to fertilise the land for more sustainable farming.
And the seeds are cold-pressed locally without solvents to minimise the impact on the environment.
