Great skincare should not come at a cost to our planet. We’re continuing our crusade against carbon emissions and our goal of becoming a carbon negative beauty brand.
Here’s how Strawberry Booster makes a difference:
INGREDIENTS We love upcycled ingredients at BYBI and use them in over 50% of the range.
Our strawberry seed oil is an upcycled ingredient from the juicing industry. We use the strawberry seeds that are removed prior to juicing and would normally be discarded into landfill. They are thoroughly sterilised and then cold pressed, to produce a high quality oil that’s an amazing skincare ingredient.
Upcycling negates the need for a secondary supply chain to grow the fruit in order to access the seeds (at which point the pulp would be discarded), meaning there’s no doubling up and therefore dramatically reduced energy consumption.
MANUFACTURING The oil is cold-pressed to order, so there’s no waste, and it’s a low carbon process too. Glass printed with biodegradable plant based ink that does not interfere with the recycling process.
PACKAGING The glass bottle is eligible for ReBYBI (BYBI’s UK recycling program). Carton, glass bottle and glass stem of pipette are all eligible for local recycling.
