ZERO WASTE BEAUTY®

BY FULL CIRCLE uPCYLED ingredients

Reduce your footprint on the planet by 'upcycling' old rather than creating new

The cosmetics industry began with making use of the resources around us. These were usually animal based. Whether that was Squalene from shark liver oil, or Lanolin from sheep wool. The industry then moved on to ever more exotic materials of plant origin, leading to questions over sustainability. The use of stem cell technology has since been promoted but this approach has limitations, not least production capacity and cost.

We are demonstrating that the industry can go 'Full Circle' and look again at reusing existing materials, but from a vegetable origin; ensuring we can not only produce innovative and sustainable ingredients, but also reduce our footprint on the planet by making better use of the resources that are already available.

ZERO WASTE BEAUTY®

The Full Circle Charter:

  • NO NEW RESOURCES – They are out to prove that the industry can thrive solely by 'upcycling' existing materials
  • NO SMALL PACK SURCHARGES - Reduce waste and order to your exact batch size
  • NOTHING TO LANDFILL - It's already full enough
  • PLANT BASED - Natural products with vegan approval
  • LOW CARBON - No energy intensive chemistry here

FULL CIRCLE uPCYLED ingredients make use of a variety of by products and waste from the food industry such as rice that is the 'wrong size'; raspberry and blueberry pulp left over from fruit juice production; or olive stones discarded from the pressing of olive oil. We have a very clever team who develop these raw materials into innovative and sustainable cosmetic ingredients such as actives, oils and scrubs
