Upcycled Ingredients

Did you know?

We need 100,000 berries to make 1kg of raspberry oil.

Unlike traditional ingredients that may require extensive resources and energy to produce, upcycled ingredients are derived from by-products or waste materials that would have otherwise been discarded. Upcycling involves transforming these materials into valuable and usable ingredients, reducing waste and environmental impact.

  • Wine By-Products

    Residues from wine production, such as grape seed oil or grape extract, are often upcycled into skincare products. These ingredients are rich in antioxidants and can help protect the skin from environmental damage.

  • Nut Shells

    The shells of nuts like almonds or walnuts can be finely ground and used as a gentle exfoliant in skincare products, providing a natural and sustainable alternative to synthetic microbeads.
