We do our bit for the planet. Meaning you can scrub your body and soul with confidence, knowing your products aren’t destroying the environment.
We strive for less waste and a smaller carbon footprint.
More thoughtfulness, transparency and accountability, with fewer products to get more (and better) results. Coz’ Too. Many. Products = Too. Much. Waste. Your skin and the planet should be happy, not stressed.
Our naked butts are always researching sustainable innovations to help us reduce our carbon footprint. We’re *serious* about this shiz because there’s no planet B, folk.
You can rest easy knowing the final product that lands in your hands is cruelty-free
and consciously created.
Now, we’re no Captain Planet, but we’re keen planeteers, because saving our planet
is the thing to do. We recognise we can always do more, so we stay in-the-know about sustainability, having identified changes we hope to implement in the not so distant future.
We are continually on the hunt for ways to reduce our carbon footprint as a brand in 2020 and beyond, because looting and polluting is not the way. Feel free to holla at us with any suggestions
you might have, we are all ear, and wagging tails! GO PLANET!
doin’ our bit for mother nature
We are all about cutting the crap and first on the chopping block is Palm Oil. Due to the social, environmental and ethical implications caused by the palm oil industry, this ingredient is a no go for us. Why? There is absolutely no guarantee that the palm oil produced is from a conflict-free and sustainable resource.
We are 'Plantarians' not just because we are against any form of animal cruelty, but because it helps the environment. Designing scrumptiously delicious skinfood that uses no animal products or by-products helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, it's that simple really.
Our ingredients are kind to your naked butts, you will never find these baddies in our products; synthetic colours, silicones, parabens, microbeads, P.E.G.s, Sulfates, G.M.O.'s, Mineral oils, petrolatum or chemical U.V. filters. Not only is it bad for your skin, but it's harmful to Mother Nature. 'Aint nobody got time for that! Read more about our clean ingredients.
shipping + dispatch
We use biodegradable + compostable post satchels for shipping which is made from plants and produced from wind and renewable energy. It has a low carbon footprint, and best of all can be composted at home, reducing waste in our landfills.
Wind farms for the win(d)! Your compost worms will love you for it!
We reuse all the cardboard boxes that arrive in our warehouse boxes to pack
wholesale and large order. This means, none of the packaging from incoming
couriers and suppliers is thrown out, we use every last piece! If an order needs a little extra padding, we use bio-fill which is made from Australian corn
and potato starch, as well as biodegradable bubble wrap. When immersed in water, bio-fill dissolves with no harmful
residue and can be thoughtfully disposed of as it completely breaks down.
Bio Fill is also compostable and can be used on your garden – it can actually improve soil structure!
packaging + printing
We are digital geeks, so we choose to communicate with our customers via cyberspace using online marketing material utilising social media and email. But sometimes we need some printed fun. This fun is printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper (creating less waste) using soy or vegetable inks. At Butt Naked HQ, we only use 100% recycled printing paper.
Lip Care Range
Our lip care range uses plastic free packaging (aluminium tins) and biodegradable tamper-evident shrink seals made from Viscose/Celons. This material is made from extruded cellulose. That means the main ingredient in these bands is wood pulp sourced from renewable sources! The seals are bio-degradable and home compostable – you can put them in your food waste instead of disposing of these through conventional waste-streams.
Face Mask Labels
These labels are made from Bagasse fibre, a plant-based, renewable tree-free. material made from Sugar-cane paper; created from predominantly sugar cane waste.
During the growth of the sugar cane, atmospheric carbon is captured by the plant and converted to biomasse. Bagasse is the fibre that remains after the juice has been extracted from the sugar cane plant.
Producing Bagasse had a lower carbon footprint so by using sugarcane in place of wood pulp we can lower pollution and preserve forest ecosystems.
We use FSC certified environmentally sustainable label materials for our face mask tamper seals.
What is FSC? It’s a Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain of Custody (CoC) certified label; which tracks the label from a tree, through the supply chain and on to us, the end user. Chain of Custody (CoC) certification is the mechanism used to track wood material of certified forests, responsible sources and reclaimed material to any point along the supply chain.
We are currently working super-hard to research and implement more sustainable options for our product labels and packaging. Our mission is to make each product as sustainable as possible and ditch the unfriendly to nature components. However, as bio packaging is in its infancy it is a hard task to source materials and resources to allow us to implement all these things overnight. Please be patient with us, our vision is to implement bio innovations in as many facets of the business as possible.
Our naked warehouse uses TerraCycle waste boxes to recycle any waste we cannot reuse ourselves. The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, fibers, and plastics. Metals are melted so they may be recycled. The fibers (such as paper or wood based products) are recycled or composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletisation to be molded into new recycled plastic products.
