When we say we are a green company, we carry that through all our practices, including green packaging. No greenwashing here. From bottle, to tube, to carton, every step of the way we carefully consider our impact on the environment.

The majority of our packaging is made of glass, and this is a decision we at Tata Harper Skincare conscientiously make. Glass is made by taking silica (a.k.a. sand) and melting it at high temperatures in a furnace. It is one of the oldest and most natural processes. So natural, in fact, that if lightning strikes a sandy beach, the heat from the bolt of lightning will create a glass sculpture in the sand. Glass is highly recyclable and can be reused over and over. Please recycle your bottles!

What little plastic we do use is necessary for the function of the packaging and is as eco-friendly as possible. The plastic resin for our tubes is derived from corn, which means it is made from a renewable resource instead of petroleum. 

Our cartons have two different sustainability goals. The Sustainable Forestry Initiative label on a few of our boxes lets you know that the package’s materials came from a responsible source – as opposed to unethical sources such as illegal logging processes or from areas that lack effective social laws. We also use 100% post-consumer materials, or recycled paperboard. We use soy-based ink for printing. Paper recycling always involves removing ink so that the paper will be ready for the next use making soy ink an ideal choice for sustainable packaging.

Our beautiful environmentally responsible packaging allows you to feel good about your purchasing decision, and its impact on the earth.
