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 Blueberry Booster makes a difference:
We love upcycled ingredients at BYBI and use them in over 50% of the range. Our blueberry seed oil is an upcycled ingredient from the juicing industry. We use the blueberry seeds that are removed prior to juicing and would normally be discarded into landfill. They are thoroughly steralised 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.
The oil is cold-pressed to order, so there’s no waste, and it’s a low carbon process too. Made in small batches at our lab powered entirely by green energy. Our manufacturing machinery is manual, meaning it doesn’t require any energy to make at all. Glass printed with biodegradable plant based ink that does not interfere with the recycling process.
Carton, glass bottle and glass stem of pipette are all eligible for local recycling.
