I strive to provide you with the finest in ethical skin care products. Every ingredient is thoroughly researched and must have a proper, useful skincare role in the formula.
I do not use toxic or suspect ingredients such as synthetic fragrances, synthetic colourants, parabens & other synthetic preservatives, sulphates and urea. All ingredients are listed on the labels and on the website for your reference.
Resources and the Environment
I take my commitment to conserving resources & the environment seriously. I believe prevention is better than cure so use packaging material that is recycled, recyclable or compostable. This means that your order will arrive with as little packaging as possible, nothing unnecessary. Usually in a recycled cardboard box with compostable popped starch packing if needed.
The emphasis is on what goes into the bottle or jar and so keep the packaging simple and straightforward. The products stand on their own merits without any gimmicky packaging.
Most HeatherJoy containers are manufactured in Australia from recycled PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate). It's 100% recyclable and unique in that it can be recycled over & over. Recycling uses less than 30% of the energy needed to manufacture virgin PET. This means it's the most environmentally friendly plastic in the world.
PET and PHPE do not off-gas or leach chemicals into the products. It is lightweight, minimising postage costs and unlike glass, will not pose a safety risk or wastage if dropped.
I am very conscious of the waste that can be generated by a business; even a very small one as HeatherJoy is and will remain. We reuse what we can, look for others who can, and failing that we recycle at our local centre. Any cardboard boxes that cannot be reused for packaging go into our family garden as mulch. All HeatherJoy printed material is on recycled paper or card and 'plastic' wrap is actually cellulose based and biodegradable.
We do our best to keep our planet clean.
