Almost. Our packaging is either 100% plastic free or very low plastic. We use amber glass jars and bottles, and aluminium closures that are made in England. We use some plastic where no alternatives exist, for example the nipple in our serum pipettes or conditioner pumps. However, we try to offer refill options for these whenever possible. Our product cartons are made with FSC recycled materials and biodegradable veggie inks just sever miles away. We don’t use plastic packing materials to send your order either.
Yes, our products are free from added aluminium and aluminium salt derivatives commonly used in anti-perspirants.
We use some food-grade aluminium packaging that is widely used in the cosmetics industry. Our packaging material is manufactured to EU ISO 9001:2015 standard, safe for use with food and cosmetics, and supplied to us by a long-standing British company. It is complete with a BPA-free coating that prevents contact with any raw aluminium and is 100% recyclable.
Yes, our products are gluten free. We use organic wheatgerm oil and vitamin e derived from wheatgerm oil in some formulations. Despite sounding to the contrary, wheatgerm oil is gluten free. The refining process used to make wheatgerm oil removes gluten proteins from the final ingredient before we add it to our lovely products. A gluten free ingredient declaration statement is available upon request.
Yes, our products are soy free. We use organic coconut milk powder in the formulation and organic Maltodextrin makes up 2.5% of this ingredient. Our Maltodextrin is derived from organic Tapioca starch, which is extracted from a tuberous South American Cassava root.
We are happy to confirm that we do not use ingredients derived from raw materials that have been genetically modified (GMO). We use palm-free glycerine derived from non-GM Rapeseed oil, and non-GM vitamin e in our formulations. GMO-free ingredient declaration statements are available upon request.
All of our products are nut free, EXCEPT FOR EYE TIME, which contains Almond oil. Please be aware that we use ingredients that may have been packed on premises that handles nuts (including peanuts), seeds, cereals, soy and products containing gluten prior to coming to our facility for mixing up into our lovely range of products.
PALM OIL FREE?
We don’t use palm oil directly in any of our formulations, however we do use some ingredients that are derived from Responsibly Sourced Palm Oil (RSPO). These tend to be emulsifiers that are needed to achieve the texture and results our customers have come to expect from our hair and body care products. Where palm-derived ingredients are used, they are notified on the ingredients list and they are certified RSPO.
We take great care in selecting unadulterated ingredients that are ultra rich in naturally occurring antioxidants and minerals. Our unique formulas are then strengthened by the power of natural plant synergies, quenching your skin, hair and body in the best that nature has to offer.
At Awake Organics, our natural products embody our philosophy of wellbeing. They are consciously-made and certified cruelty free by Leaping Bunny.
