How sustainable our hemp seed oils are.
We think that anyone who does something good for themselves should only use products that do not harm our nature to do so. That is why our entire production from the cultivation of raw materials to the finished end product is certified organic. Hemp, hemp seeds and lemongrass are harvested by hand in Austria, handpicked and gently cold pressed into oil or gently processed into organic lemongrass extract. The producer obtains most of his raw materials from regional organic farmers. The employees also come from the region, so that the travel distances are as short as possible. In our Swiss partner company, the products are packaged and labeled by hand. The company covers its energy needs exclusively with green electricity from solar, wind and water power.
In terms of packaging, we have opted for robust, UV-protected bottles and use 100% no aluminum for the closures. The shipping packaging also meets our high standards of sustainability. They are made of FSC-certified cardboard boxes from sustainable forestry. The shipping is climate neutral through the Swiss Post.
How we think about sustainability in general.
The resources of this world are limited, and there is no such thing as “Planet B”. That’s why we pay attention to sustainability in everything we do. Whenever possible, we source our products and raw materials from certified organic manufacturers. To continuously minimize our carbon footprint, we ship climate-neutral and strive to buy as regionally as possible.
Sustainability is a multifaceted issue for us. Every month we donate one percent of our sales to the organization Hakuna Mipaka of the Swiss Dean Schneider in South Africa. Dean Schneider initiates, supports and runs worldwide projects for the protection of wild animals and advocates for a respectful coexistence of humans, animals and nature. Our COO Michael Hoffmann spent several weeks working at Hakuna Mipaka and was able to get his own impression of the high value of the projects.
