Our sustainability efforts
Nature & Nurture
Based in Northern New South Wales, we’re proud of our provenance and have the deepest respect for the environmental, cultural and spiritual significance of a land and indigenous culture that dates back over 20,000 years. We’re mindful not to be a burden on this land, community, or the planet.
We know we’re not perfect (yet) but we are striving to be our best, most sustainable selves; committed to finding ways we can lighten our footprint and give back to our local environment and community, now and into the future. While we eagerly await our B Corporation certification – it’s a process – to verify our social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability, our sustainability values include:
Purely Byron skincare is cruelty-free and we are passionately against animal testing. Our clean formulations hero natural-origin ingredients and keep your skin and our waterways free of synthetic fragrance, silicones, PEGs, sulfates, and parabens.
Post-Consumer Recycled Packaging
We live by a circular sustainability model; we use recyclable packaging and work with post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials for our packaging and shipping materials. We also use post-consumer recycled and rainforest sustainable certified (FSC) paper and cardboard and chemical-free soy bean ink on all our product cartons. [So if you spot the occasional mark or blemish on a product or its outer packaging, think of it as a little beauty spot and a respectful nod to its former life.]
All Purely Byron products are recyclable via your kerbside recycling system. Recycling instructions carefully detail exactly how to dispose of each product to ensure the best chance of it being recycled properly.
We believe in putting our money where our mates are; supporting the Byron community with considered economic and employment opportunities. Our skincare is made in a family-owned, female-run manufacturing facility here in Byron and we try to source as much from within our local community as we can; from locally grown native botanicals and materials from Byron-based suppliers and artisans to the expertise of local experts who assist us with our formulations and our signature Purely Byron rituals.
