Ingredients

Our products are prepared from freshly cold-pressed ingredients, sourced directly from the makers.

We never dilute any ingredient, to keep it as close to its original state as possible. All our ingredients is unrefined and raw.

Basics

We analyze every fresh batch of our chief ingredient for its bioactive compounds, fatty-acid composition, and antioxidant levels.

Our chief ingredient undergoes analysis of 21 external contaminants, including heavy metals, mycotoxins, pesticides, and other harmful compounds. The components we use are certified organic and checked for heavy metals.

Our raw ingredients are sourced in compliance with social and environmental rules using voluntary labor and chiefly from countries that comply with Nagoya protocol.

◦ Any synthetics, toxic compounds, additives, preservatives, alcohol, or fillers, including water, we are proud to keep all our products 100% undiluted and fully concentrated.

The high antioxidant content of our ingredients keeps our products efficient and lasting.

Moreover, no CMR compounds of category 1A, 1B, and 2 banned for use in cosmetic products within the EU are present in our products, neither any materials listed in the Californian Safe Program Proposition 65.

All our products are manufactured without nanotechnology.

Any use of pesticides or sewer sludge. GMO-free.

All our ingredients are vegan, and during our entire supply chain never tested on animals either on its own or in the final product. We source only certified organic ingredients or from remote, pristine regions to ensure no toxic compounds were in contact with the plants to guarantee non-toxicity of our products and pollinating insects.

Phaedra Botanicals provides all the information on the origin of our ingredients and where and how it was prepared. If you do not find what you are searching for, you can contact us via our Contact form, selecting the ‘product inquiry’ option.

Packaging

It would make little sense to go to the effort to keep our ingredients ultimately clean and non-toxic to package them in a container that can contaminate them.

As such, we approach our package with the same degree of responsibility as our ingredients.

Primary packaging

Our patented biophotonic glass is created for us in the Netherlands. Like our ingredients, it undergoes extensive tests, including heavy metal testing, to ensure nothing leaches to our bioactive ingredients.

ΒΙΟ, meaning “life” in Greek, and ΦΩΣ, meaning light is a glass that protects and prolongs the lifetime of the bioactive ingredient by filtering sun rays, including infrared, UVA and visible light.

It offers the highest properties for the preservation of our bioactive ingredients. While transparent, amber and green glass is, to a certain extent, subject to the destructive influences of light, our biophotonic glass filters out harmful rays, prolonging the shelf life and efficiency of the product inside. It acts as a barrier, preserving the energy of the bioactive ingredient stored within.

We use biophotonic glass also for our small-sized products to ensure maximum quality.

Our glass is manufactured in compliance with ISO and the EU directives.

We reuse, upcycle, and when broken, recycle our glass to prevent the formation of waste. Our packaging can be returned to us anytime for reuse. Request the closest shipping address to your location via our Contact form, selecting the option Packaging return for reuse and upcycling.

Although kept to the minimum, our packaging contains a small plastic part at the top of the glass pipette to seal the container or, in some cases, tube.

Polyolefin used in this pipette’s section complies in its composition and purity to the requirements of Commission Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011 of 14 January 2011, including its amendments (EU) No. 1282/2011, No. 1183/2012, No. 202/2014, No. 2015/174, No. 2016/1416, No.2017/752, No.2018/79, No.2018/213, and No. 2018/831.

Moreover, its composition meets the FDA regulation requirements 21 CFR 177.1520 “Olefin Polymers” and European Pharmacopoeia 9th Edition of the Groundwork 2017, including its various supplements.

The colorants used for coloring polymers parts in our packaging are not in direct contact with our ingredient and consist of mixtures of different pigments and carrier materials, all corresponding with the EU Resolution AP (89) 1. All additives comply with the Regulation (EC) 10/2011, including the amendments (EC) 321/2011, 1282/2011, 1183/2012, 202/2014, 865/2014, 2015/174, 2016/1416, and 20417/752.

All our materials used for packaging comply with the European and American regulations for materials in contact with foodstuffs and with the European Pharmacopoeia, thus ensuring non-toxicity and preventing contamination of our bio-active ingredient.

Given the high quality of our ingredients, we select only packaging that prevents any spills. As such, a high-quality glass pipette allows you to distribute small amounts of our precious oils for application. Pumps do the same.

Moreover, because all our products undergo microbiological analysis and assessment, we give preference to packaging when one can not contaminate the contents in any way, thus using pipettes and pumps whenever possible.

In design, we love minimalism. We use a single-color for the branding of our products while avoiding unnecessary packaging. Each packaging has the potential to end up as waste; thus, less is always better.

Although we encourage our clients to reuse our high-quality glass or ship it back to us for reuse as we are firm believers recycling should be the last option; if you decide to recycle your glass because it was damaged, you can recycle it with green glass (code72) or dark amber glass (code73). For more information, you should contact your local authorities responsible for recycling.

Our products are either composed of a single component or represent a blend of pure, organic, non-toxic ingredients rich in antioxidants and naturally occurring vitamins. We use no synthetic compounds in our skincare.

We introduced new recyclable and biodegradable labels with FSC certification, meaning that the pulps used are all from managed forests. It is also heavy metal-free because the bleaching process avoids the use of harmful chlorine.

COMMITMENT TO ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY IN OUR PACKAGING.

We continuously reinvent our secondary packaging to become more environmentally friendly and responsible for our environmental impact.

Although our primary packaging in the form of patented biophotonic glass is stable, our secondary packaging has changed several times to reduce our waste.

We have come from individual product boxes and starch-based branded bags to craft recycled tubes to protect our glass containers, continually adapting to new solutions and improvements.
