It is always in the forefront of our minds of how we can do things better. Having sourced the finest collagen in the world and running a company where our ethos has a holistic approach to our heath + beauty - it made sense to have a closer look at all of our processes to bring it all into alignment . We have been navigating our way forward into sustainability now for two years - testing prototypes + different types of materials that did not compromise our product nor the planet.
Adashiko began this quest when we changed our plastic courier bags to compostable bags quite some time ago along with cardboard boxes for our online + stockist packaging for courier . We have now perfected this even down to using plant based packing tape with an all-natural rubber adhesive. We have also minimised our booklet flyer into an A6 card. We are constantly looking at ways to reduce our materials that we use + adhere to a sustainable practice.
We live in a world where you aren’t producing a product but rather another plastic item. Once our powder is consumed what is left? It is time to do things differently . We are so happy with what we have come up with and we are sure that you will love it as much as we do. With our collagen powder tubs we finally say goodbye to plastic – right down to the scoop. To ensure you get your full RDI of collagen ( 5g) just use a heaped teaspoon in place of the usual two scoops – easy!
Our new look tubs are fully recyclable and biodegradable - made of a food grade paper pulp sans foil / paper lining – so they can actually be recycled, put in the compost + it will biodegrade. Like our formulas, these have been developed especially for Adashiko.
In line with our new tubs , we also bid farewell to plastic with our skincare line. We started this shift with the small jars for our balms + samples and now to our Collagen + Noni Gels pumps in the 50 + 100ml . Packaged in product protective matte glass not only does the aesthetic look sleek but it’s kinder to our Mother Earth.
The best of all is our Collagen Cleanse Kit – everything is plastic free. The Cleanse Case made from corn-starch + bamboo is fully compostable at home or commercially but is also super durable we have and will not compromise on quality. The Collagen Cleanse itself just comes inside a recyclable box. And the ‘game-changer’ in cleansing Kabuki Brushes silk soft bristles are comprised of plant based polymer fibres with a bamboo handle and is fully biodegradable.
Adashiko is conscious about our impact on the environment - the only impact we want to make is a positive one.
Keeping you + the planet beautiful . . .
Yours in health + beauty
