Our packaging team approaches the complexity of assessing the environmental impact of our packaging with rigour and diligence, and with the constant aim to tread as lightly as possible.
Our products are predominately housed in glass and recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (rPET) plastic.
Where possible, we use glass packaging made from recycled content.
Our decision to use plastic is not made lightly and is the determination sees the convergence of our packaging principles, stringent compatibility testing, and the pragmatic acknowledgement that this material offers a lightweight, eminently portable and safe option for products frequently used for travel, amenities or shower-use.
Recycled PET provides a lightweight, durable and safe material to house our formulations. Bottles are manufactured using a minimum 97% recycled material sourced from post-consumer kerbside recycling. In partnering with our suppliers, Cannalogica, through the use of recycled PET has helped create demand and value for material that would otherwise be going to landfill, which in turn helps to create circular systems.
Recycled PET affords additional environmental savings, minimising product wastage from breakages and freight emissions when compared to a heavier material such as glass. When compared to virgin PET material, recycled PET provides an overall reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
The Supercritical CO2 extraction process creates phase changes in carbon dioxide utilizing temperature and pressure. CO2 is known as a “tunable solvent” making it extremely versatile for creating a multitude of end products by controlling temperature and pressure. These phase changes create an environment to drop out differing weights of components in the plant material.
CO2 offers you the ability to “tune” the extraction process, especially with a system that will separate constituents during an extraction. You can target specific compounds, like terpenes through different operational parameters. CO2 is also a sanitizing agent.
