In an industry that is notoriously saturated with waste, we desire to do things differently. We aim to run a business that does not harm animals, people or the planet — and only choose suppliers with the same values. This has been our primary goal since day one. From our choices to use recyclable glass vs. plastic, use recycled and recyclable shipping materials, and reduce carbon emissions by keeping suppliers close to home — we are always looking for ways to be more responsible as a brand. Our biggest sustainability initiative lives in asking our customers to use less, and making pathways for them to be successful in this by designing our line to be multi-functional and shareable. Thank you for joining us in this initiative.
When we designed our shipping materials, we wanted to create a minimal, yet high-end experience while keeping ethical production and sustainable practices at the forefront.
We source materials from local suppliers, use an up cycled cotton (tree free) paper stock & recyclable tape, and have designed insert cards that we hope our customers will hold on to.
With sustainability as a priority component of our business model, we are constantly looking for ways to optimize our shipping and supply chain methodologies. We prioritize sourcing from local suppliers and diversify distribution so customers can have the option to shop locally.
All Berlin Skin products are bottled in recyclable MIRON Glass to protect the quality of our formulas. Sourced from The Netherlands, this glass is some of the highest quality used in skincare. The biophotonic glass has unique properties that protect the plant-based formulas from light which increases shelf life and ensures potency.
We believe that the most healing ingredients are sourced from the earth. We work to source ingredients that are organic, wildcrafted, and local whenever possible.
For example, the premium matcha used in our signature Matcha Mask is sourced from Uji, Japan — the highest quality tea growing region, and is the birthplace of Japanese green tea. The matcha is in its purest form, non-gmo, radiation-free, preservative and heavy metal-free. It’s also shade grown and JAS-organic certified.
