Sustainability and producing.
Savage Turtle develops and produces natural body care products in Europe. Our energy source is solar-energy and we are happy we can produce in the most sustainable way possible.
The ingredients we use come from natural sources and are where possible of certified organic origin. The quality of our products are top priority and we use vegan ingredients that must meet our highest quality standards. If the end results with vegan ingredients do not meet our high quality standard we use a natural non-vegan substitute.
Sustainability and packaging
Although using recycled plastics or bio plastics are more frequently used nowadays this is no guarantee that these will not end up in the ocean as micro-plastics and that is what we are trying to avoid. We use aluminum or glass jars and bottles. Using bio-degradable packing would be fantastic and we are trying to make that happen.
Sometimes it is not possible to avoid plastics like in closings and sprays because it is needed to seal off liquids or to spray liquids because nobody wants a leaking bottle in their purse or backpack.
Sustainability and the rainforest
Savage Turtle uses Kukui oil and Illipe butter from wild picked nuts in the rain forests of Borneo. This way we help to reduce deforestation of the rainforests by buying organic carrier oils and organic butters from the local people so they can make a sustainable living and protect the rainforests.
Sustainability and the oceans
Savage Turtle helps to fight the plastic soup in the oceans by avoiding plastics where possible and using recyclable and reusable packaging for products and for shipping.
By buying Savage Turtle Mineral Zinc Sunscreens you support Love The Oceans and contribute to the restoration of coral reefs.
Sustainability and shipping
Savage Turtle reuses shipping materials like filling materials and carton shipping boxes as much as possible. For wholesale shipments we use recycled boxes.
When we ship to consumers we ship by regular mail using track & trace so we use regular scheduled mail services and don't have to use special delivery couriers who have to go out special for you. That saves a lot of CO2 pollution.
