Making Natural Cosmetics: The Organic Production Process

There is a growing awareness of the effects of farming and production, and not all methods are created equal. The organic production process is designed to have a minimal impact on the Earth and its inhabitants.

At Gentle Approach, we appreciate companies that take a sustainable approach to their work, from planting and harvesting to processing and packaging, Here’s what we look for:

Sustainable Farming

We choose to work with brands that use advanced organic and biodynamic farming methods, designed to follow the earth’s natural ecosystem. These methods are geared towards preserving the harmonious relationship between the plants, humanity and the planet. Both organic and biodynamic methods avoid all synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilisers.

Sustainable Production

We also enjoy working with suppliers that use sustainable and renewable sources of energy (like geothermal or wind energy) to operate the machines that produce their products. This means they emit lower levels of CO2 than other manufacturers.

Sustainable Packaging

Once a product is created, it must be packaged and distributed. We choose to support companies that avoid petroleum or oil-based plastics, choosing biodegradable and compostable materials like polymer polylactide.

We’ve been blessed to collaborate with some highly ethical brands that are committed to the organic production process, which allows us to offer our clients the greenest choices.
