Environmental Stewardship

We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint while always maintaining the highest possible standards in the design and development of our products. We’re proud to say that it is our living, breathing mission to create environmentally-friendly offerings that we can all feel good about. Sustainability is at our core and our products are always good for skin and earth.

Naturally Nature-Friendly. Protecting the environment and the people who use our products is of supreme importance to Gilchrist & Soames.  Safeguarding our delicate ecology is deeply rooted in our business philosophy. We pursue eco-friendly practices in all aspects of product creation, from ingredients and packaging to sourcing and manufacturing. Our concern follows the product, even in disposal. As a member of Green Dot, we are aligned with an organization that promotes efficient and environmentally sound recycling and waste management solutions in North America and Europe. We are also long-time partners with Clean the World, an organization dedicated to supporting the global community through an amenities recycling program.

Cruelty-Free Development. We are committed to cruelty-free development and manufacturing. Our personal care amenities are never tested on animals and are Leaping Bunny-certified.

Packaging Innovation. Gilchrist & Soames uses a variety of packaging materials including recycled fiberboard and packer cartons and resins that are highly recyclable, including PET, HDPE, and LDPE. We are also actively engaged in recycling efforts to lessen our impact on the environment. Our bottles, cartons, and labels are made from the most readily available recyclable materials, and we utilize bio-additives in some of our plastics, making them 100% biodegradable should they wind up in landfills. In addition, we are proud to be one of the earliest adopters in dispenser innovation and offer a wide variety of product options that eliminate the need for single-use bottles.

Step by step, it all adds up to a green today and an even greener tomorrow.
