A Global Commitment
Hotel and Spa Essentials is fully aware of the necessity to preserve the resources of the planet which is why we strive to minimise the carbon footprint and environmental impact of all our manufacturing activities from design through to formulation and delivery.
Hotel and Spa Essentials is committed to developing products with a reduced impact as a contribution to protecting the environment to ensure a sustainable future for generations to come. We do this through ourCare About Earth program without compromising resources and to meet growing requirements for sustainable products. All our amenity lines comply with European cosmetic law and our manufacturers with best practice rules.
We are developing natural additives that will help with the acceleration of decomposition and bio-degradability of the chemical structures found in plastic. This process is known as Oxo-Biodegradable which speeds up the process of degradation of plastic in packaging materials.
Our packaging is made from a variety of materials such as recycled paper or stone paper and we are also looking at plant-based plastic which is made from corn, wheat, straw and bamboo, for example – which will avoid using the components of petrochemicals in the future.
We also provide organic cotton laundry bags and natural fibre slippersand we have a range of Ecopump 300ml dispensers and Ecosource Airless Dispensers that are both approved by Ecocert.
All cardboard boxes and packaging for accessories are printed using acrylic varnish and our brochures are printed with vegetable inks on PEFC certified paper made from sustainably managed forests or FSC recycled paper in ISO 14001 certified printing establishments.
& natural formulations
We are focused on an ecological approach for developing products that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on function.
Our formulations use natural origin ingredients and plant-based surface-active agents boasting over 90% biodegradability.
Our formulations do not contain formaldehyde, phthalates, ionizing radiation or parabens. All our formulas are dermatologically tested and not tested on animals.
Our soaps are 99% vegetable-based and most of them are formulated with palm oil from RSPO-certified sustainably managed palm plantations and without EDTA.
OUR ORGANIC PRODUCTS ARE CERTIFIED BY ECOCERT AND ACCREDITED BY COSMEBIO.
