TO YOUR WELLNESS...
Over a decade ago, Wellnesse was born from a tiny seed of hope for cleaner, more ethical personal care products. And even now as a large-scale operation, we are proud to embody the high standards we set when we were first filling glass mason jars with toothpaste at our kitchen table.
-- WELLNESSE, A LABOR OF LOVE, FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS --
OUR PRODUCTS ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING VALUES
It hasn't been an easy road, but it's been the right one for us. Wellnesse is, and always has been, a labor of love. Not just for the health of our families, bur for the the health of environment, too - and for the well-being of every person involved in the creation of our products. Being environmentally-conscious is our focus from start to finish.
SAFE FOR YOU
We started Wellnesse to create healthy alternatives for our own family, and we would never create any product that we wouldn’t feel safe using on our kids or ourselves. That’s why we pledge to make only the highest quality products that are all-natural and non-toxic. But we also take it a step further by using ingredients that are good for you from the outside in – from mineral-building hydroxyapatite in our toothpaste, to tomato fruit extract in our shampoo. Our formulas work better than what’s already on shelves, but without toxins, parabens, sulfates and more. You can see all of our ingredients for yourself here and explore our collections here.
SAFE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Beyond using ingredients that are good for you, all of our products must meet strict environmental sustainability standards. We strive to make our business practices completely transparent in this area, and are thrilled to have received two key certifications that demonstrate our commitment to protecting our environment:
B CORP CERTIFIED
Having a B Corp Certification indicates that we meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance. This is determined by B Lab, a nonprofit network whose mission is to “transform the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet.”
When a company applies to become a B Corp, B Lab starts with a thorough assessment. First, they evaluate the quality and sustainability of the company operations and business model. They look at everything from the supply chain to charitable giving and public transparency. This data is then used to understand how the business impacts workers, the environment, and customers, both now and in the future. These combined pieces ultimately determine whether the business is fit for Certification.
Is it a long process? Yup. Is it worth it? Absolutely! You can learn more about the entire process here.
SAFE FOR THE GREATER GOOD
We source our products globally – not only so we’re able to source the best ingredients, but so we can source them ethically, too. This is also why many of our formulas are not certified organic. In fact, we’ve gone beyond organic. Here’s why:
Just because an ingredient is “certified organic,” it doesn’t mean that it’s ethically produced – and many times, certified organic ingredients come from countries where it’s difficult to know the full scope of the labor conditions. (Additionally, while some ingredients can be grown organically in the US, the plant may grow more purely and naturally in other places, which is always our preference).
SUSTAINABLE, ETHICAL, & CHEMICAL FREE LABOR
That’s why many of the ingredients we source are wild-harvested instead of certified organic – because they are grown without pesticides and other toxins while also being easy to trace back to the labor source. With every ingredient we source, we work thoroughly to ensure it comes from sustainable, ethical, and chemical-free labor.
This dedication to creating a positive impact has culminated in our B Corp Certification, a process that took literally hundreds of hours to achieve.
