NOT JUST WORDS BUT REAL, DAILY ACTIONS At Phytorelax, we want to have a positive impact on the world and we place great importance on safeguarding the planet and people’s health. That is why we commit ourselves to limiting our impact on the environment and to use our small influence to raise awareness in our community regarding causes that are important to us.
OUR PRODUCTS We only want the best for our customers’ skin and for the environment so we started a path of sustainability in the creation of our cosmetics in order to respond to the increasingly shared desire for products that are attentive to principles such as safety, efficacy and environmental eco-sustainability. For all these reasons we decided to certify our skincare lines by developing them in compliance with the highest standards of organic cosmetics. The certification bodies we have chosen to date are Cosmos Organic ICEA and AIAB.
OUR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT Today we are increasingly committed to adopting virtuous behaviors that contribute to the protection of the Planet: concrete daily actions such as recycling, using FSC paper, or using 100% recyclable PET materials. And again, choices such as not using microplastic in our exfoliants’ formulas in favor of 100% vegetable raw materials, the creation of an efficient design to limit the space occupied inside the packaging to reduce the environmental impact of shipping, and the use of secondary packaging only if strictly necessary.
AN AGREEMENT WITH THE TERRITORY Phytorelax cosmetics have been produced in Italy, at the headquarters in Ozzano dell’Emilia, in the province of Bologna, since 1980. We select the best suppliers in Italy, purchasing raw materials, primary packaging, plants, and machinery from national suppliers. In order to guarantee the quality that sets us apart, we choose the best Italian collaborators for external analysis and testing services performed by laboratories and universities. We are committed, where possible, to the choice of local suppliers or in any case as close as possible to the company headquarters in order to reduce waste and contain the production of CO2 emissions.
OUR PROJECTS Since 2019 we have been actively collaborating with Treedom to plant new trees and create lush forests. All the trees in the Phytorelax forest are planted directly by local farmers and contribute to environmental, social, and economic benefits. The Phytorelax Forest grows luxuriantly in Africa – in Cameroon, Tanzania and Kenya – and in Italy, in Sicily. The trees we have chosen to plant absorb 89,150 kg of CO2 from the atmosphere, an amount that would be enough to produce almost 260,000 coffee cups!
RAISING AWARENESS We believe that the first great resource for raising awareness in our community is information. This is why we communicate on our products in a transparent way, clearly stating what the “Guarantees of quality and sustainability” are. Moreover, when it was not yet a legal obligation, we began to communicate the composition of the materials on the packaging of our products in order to facilitate separate collection, recovery, and recycling.
