Novellus Skin Care and our sustainability efforts.
Adopting sustainable measures has come into focus more than ever in the last few years. Companies and businesses are experiencing social pressure to make sure that they are mindful of the environment when they produce their goods or services. This is a fantastic measure to take, now that we are moving into an era where we are essentially spoilt for choice in terms of choosing retail goods.
This was and continues to be a serious issue for us. From the conception of Novellus, we wanted to make sure that we pursued this project in the most ethical way possible, leaving the smallest footprint behind. We began by examining the producers of our product and eventually found a small company located near Byron Bay, New South Wales. From their production methods their use of renewable energy, we knew they had to be the ones to produce Novellus.
Having a location close to Byron Bay makes access to local ingredient growers easy and convenient. The passion that is exhibited by these growers is contagious and you begin to truly understand how lucky we are to have access to such pure resources within Australia.
All of our products are housed in glass containers for the simple fact that glass can be recycled infinitely. As it currently stands we use small components made from plastic, which we are valiantly working towards finding a more sustainable replacement for. Due to the new demand, placed on manufacturers by small business, the industry is currently playing catch up and these components are incredibly hard to find, or financially unviable to produce.
While we continue with our research and development we are planning to work in conjunction with Terracycle ( https://www.terracycle.com/en-AU ) and make regular deposits of our customers old bottles and jars. We want women to have a guilt free experience of luxury, knowing we can enjoy our me-time without having to add more waste to landfill.
