As part of Earth Day, we’re highlighting a few of our favorite brands that care about the environment.acornbodycare.com is one of them. Going green has many benefits for our planet, and these skin care companies are aware of it.
Creating eco-friendly products that are kind to the environment is Eminence Organic Skin Care’s goal. All of these products are edible because they are so safe. In order to produce organic products, Eminence has used sustainable farming practices and green practices since 1958. Carbon footprint reduction is always a priority for the company.
A key component of Eminence’s environmental responsibility is how the products are produced and how they reach spa shelves. Wind and solar power are used to power the Eminence ingredient farm in Hungary. Laboratory heating is provided by geothermal energy. Almost all crop planting and harvesting is done manually, which produces very little carbon dioxide. In addition, Eminence uses only natural plant preservation techniques, such as honey traps, instead of toxic chemical pesticides.
The Beyond Organic line from Eminence, which is made with biodynamic farming, is a great example of the company’s commitment to the environment. A biodynamic farm is viewed as a living organism that is self-sufficient, self-contained, and follows the natural cycles. Only the purest, most nutrient-rich ingredients are used in this unique skin care line.
Packaging with vegetable-based inks is used throughout the entire Eminence line. Packaging for eco-friendly products consists of boxes made from post-consumer recycled material and plastic containers made from recycled, non-toxic plastic. A hot cup of water dissolves even the packing chips, which are made from corn.
Among the benefits of going green is that Eminence employees learn how important it is to protect the environment. During the Eminence warehouse’s operations, packing boxes are repurposed and recycled. In addition, Eminence recently implemented a new software system that eliminates the need for printed invoices, saving 15 to 20 trees annually.
In addition to giving back to the community, Eminence does so as a company. Besides planting trees and donating to park rejuvenation projects, the skin care line also funds the construction of wind turbines.
In the office, Eminence products are pretty popular because of their natural and organic ingredients. One of the staff favorites at LovelySkin is the Eminence Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer. Firmer, tighter, and more lifted skin is the result of using this anti-aging moisturizer, which promotes collagen production to diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
