Healthy Skin, Healthy World
Everything we do considers people, the planet and our purpose. Not only do we care about what we put on and in our bodies, but also about what eventually ends up in our waters and ecosystems. We believe we should all do our part to make a positive difference in the sustainability of our world.
2017 marks the tenth year DERMA E has been manufacturing with wind power, reducing our environmental footprint by offsetting 100% of conventional electricity use with wind energy certificates. This renewable energy purchase supports DERMA E in our continuing effort to completely offset carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
We purchase Renewable Energy Certificates from Sterling Planet Inc. These certificates help Sterling Planet build a market for renewable electricity, increase energy diversity and security, reduce dependence on foreign energy sources, support domestic economies and create US jobs.
We are passionate about sustainable lifestyles. With the exception of our 100% biodegradable facial wipes and foil packs, all of our packaging components are recyclable. No unnecessary foil, no shiny silver caps, no fancy frills or added decoration that just build up landfills and take decades to decompose. We use only safe and renewable resources to promote a healthier ecological future.
Today, nearly 67% of Australia’s coral reefs have died (Christian Science Monitor, Nov 2016). There are a growing number concerns surrounding chemical sunscreens washing off into the ocean, potentially causing harm to our coral reef ecosystems. We are proud to say we formulate our Natural Mineral Sunscreens with ingredients identified as safe for coral reef ecosystems and you! We use nano-particle-fee, chemical-free broad spectrum Zinc Oxide, tested and proven to be a superior natural sunscreen ingredient and is reef safe, helping to protect your skin and save these precious ecosystems for future generations.
