Climate change has been a cause for concern for years. As the Arctic climate shifts from ice and snow to water andrain, we are watching the Earth change before our eyes. At YUNI Beauty, we believe humans are responsible for the health of our planet. YUNI Founder, natural beauty pioneer, adventurer and yoga instructor, Emmanuel Rey, understands the impact of manufacturing plants and greenhouse gas emissions on our environment. Therefore, inherent in its mission to make wellness attainable for all, YUNI prioritizes the well-being of our planet. Read on to learn how YUNI Beauty is trailblazing in the clean/green beauty space.
Many people identify “clean” and “natural” as synonymous; however, they have distinct differences.
Clean beauty is defined by products that are created and produced without toxins and potential irritants, and they follow the ingredient recommendations from the Environmental Working Group.
As a commitment to clean beauty, all YUNI products are formulated with non-toxic, plant-based ingredients and are free of parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, petrolatum, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, mineral oil, synthetic colors or fragrances, phenoxyethanol, GMOs, PABA, EDTA, or PEGs. All aromas are made from essential oils.
Natural beauty is identified by products that contain ingredients found in nature. In accordance with natural beauty guidelines, YUNI only works with growers who use eco-friendly cultivation and harvesting methods which are easy on the planet, and which support sustainable local businesses. All natural ingredients and essential oils in YUNI products are sustainably and ethically sourced, including:
● Coconut Oil
● Peppermint Leaf
● Argan Nut Oil (organic)
● Edelweiss Plant Stem Cell
● Echinacea Plant Stem Cell
● Arnica Flower Extract
● Buriti Nut Oil (organic)
● Neem Leaf Extract
● Turmeric Root (fair trade)
● Shea Nut Butter
● Baobab Fruit Oil (organic)
● Kukui Nut Oil (organic)
● Green Tea Leaf Extract (fair trade)
● Aloe Vera juice (organic)
● Cannabis Oil
Sustainable Packaging & Responsible Manufacturing
The core of YUNI’s sustainability efforts is implemented across the whole supply chain, from the natural ingredients to the type of packaging to the manufacturing practices.
YUNI has built partnerships with factories based in the US that have specific programs for waste and energy management. For example,90% of YUNI products are made in solar-powered or wind-powered facilities and YUNI’s main warehouse in New York is also solar-powered.
To lessen the environmental impact of large extravagant packaging, YUNI opts for minimal, modern packaging that includes a mix of the following:
● All tubes made of sugarcane bio-resin
● Post-consumer resin or post-consumer recycled plastic for most bottles
● Specifically, for Shower Sheets – the wipes are biodegradable and compostable
● All product cartons are made with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified recycled paper and printed with soy ink
Our full packaging range includes FSC Mix, PETE 1, Glass, HDPE 2, LDPE 4, PETG 1, 100% post-consumer recycled plastic, and plant-based resin.
Overall, we hope together we can make the beauty space a more eco-friendly place and inspire others to do the same in every aspect of their lives – starting with self care.
