Here at Scientia, sustainability is always at the forefront of our minds. We’re always striving to do everything that we can to make a difference and in turn, help you make a difference too! After all, we only have one world so we’ve gotta look after it- right?

So, here are some of the ways we here at Scientia are making our sustainable promises to you (and the earth!) count:

Carefully selected and sourced ingredients:

Our ingredients are at the heart of everything we do at Scientia. Our founder Tiffany has hunted down the very best mother nature has to offer, each glow-giving ingredient is chosen for their amazing skin and mind benefits but also carefully selected to support the communities behind them. We aim to work with as many small-scale farmers and co-operatives as possible benefiting from local expertise whilst providing extra income to those areas.

Take our Argan Oil for example, it’s wild harvested by local women’s groups in Morocco who have the expertise and know how to make sure they're harvesting this in-demand ingredients sustainability.  Next up, our Avocado Oil is sourced from small scale farmers in Kenya, providing a second income for avocado growers who are left with rejected crop from food exporters, the avocados are still amazing (just a little unconventional looking) so that rejected fruit is turned into the Avocado Oil that goes into our Elixirs.

Vegan Society approved & Leaping Bunny certified:

We are proud to be Vegan Society approved and Leaping Bunny certified.

Leaping Bunny is a symbol recognised around the world as the gold-standard  when it comes to cruelty-free products. It means we have been independently audited by the Cruelty Free International organisation to make sure we meet their strict criteria of free standards that go above and beyond the normal legal requirements. Being part of the Leaping Bunny program means that we stick to a fixed cut-off date policy and proactively monitor all of our suppliers, our monitoring is also independently audited to ensure we consistently qualify for Leaping Bunny certification. 

Our bottles:

We’ve chosen glass bottles to house our amazing products as its easier to recycle and quite frankly we don’t think the world needs any more plastic! Our bottles are easy to take apart to recycle- so there’s no excuses… just unscrew the pipette from the bottle and separate the pipette dropper and cap, the cap is the only part of our bottle that cannot be disposed of with household recycling. The rest can be disposed of with your normal glass recycling so give your Scientia bottle a new life!

Our packaging:

Our Scientia boxes are made from FSC grade certified card and is fully recyclable, the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) ensure sustainable and responsible management of the world’s forests. They ensure that all laws are complied with, communities are treated fairly and conservation is of the upmost importance. We also use Soy Ink to print our packaging, which is a renewable source compared with other inks and is easier to remove when the product is recycled- making it a much more environmentally friendly option.

Our commitment is to doing everything we can to be as environmentally sustainable as possible in every way, but we will always strive to do more and continue to explore other ways we can reduce our impact on the environment.
