A Sustainable Philosophy
At Susanne Kaufmann, we never compromise our world to bring our products to you. This belief is reflected in the quality of our products and the way we process our plant-based ingredients. It means everything to us, that our impact on the environment be as small as possible and we see it our obligation to use the best sustainable production technologies and processes in our strive for Zero waste and a lighter footprint on our earth. We champion sustainability: in production, we rely on renewable energies, resource-saving processes and use easily recyclable glass for the majority of our packaging. These glass jars and bottles contain highly effective, active ingredients derived from nature. Choosing to invest in natural high-quality ingredients, we consider and create positive beauty choices for all from natural sugar based cleansing to the world’s oldest natural beauty product, honey. Naturally uncompromising. Consistently effective. This is our promise.
A New Sustainable Packaging Solution
Our new refill system has been developed to reinforce our commitment to sustainable production by reducing packaging waste and giving our signature glass bottles a longer shelf life. We’ve worked closely with local suppliers to bring the concept to life including ALPLA, an innovator in the sustainable development and manufacture of plastic packaging solutions, which has given us the flexibility to ensure that every detail is as environmentally friendly as possible.
“The refill project has been a long-held passion of mine. We know you love our recyclable glass bottles, and so we are excited to offer a refill solution that empowers you to reuse your existing bottles, reduce your carbon footprint and help us in the fight to protect our planet.”
Kinder to the Planet
Each recyclable refill, with its intelligent capless design, not only helps reduce waste to landfill, it cuts carbon emissions by 69%. Made from 75% post-consumer material, it is 60% lighter than standard plastic bottles making it our most environmentally-friendly packaging ever. Our secondary packaging is also made from 100% recyclable paper.
We’ve chosen our best-selling Cleansing Gel, Hand Soap and Shower/Shampoo products to launch the refill project. Each product is formulated with natural sugar surfactants from renewable sources to gently cleanse and care for your hair and skin.
Simple and Effortless to Use
To use your refill, simply remove the pump from your original glass bottle, carefully cut open the refill cap and pour the product into the glass bottle. As a guide, the 250ml glass bottle can be used for up to four refills. Your refill can then be recycled according to your local council guidelines.
The new 250ml refills will debut with 3 of our top selling products: Cleansing Gel, Hand Soap and Shower/Shampoo. We believe that sustainability is a never-ending journey and promise to continue to explore opportunities to reduce our environmental impact throughout 2021 and beyond. We are committed to this philosophy and plan to expand our scope by adding more products to the refill system in the second half of 2021.
