Ever since they set out in 2012 sustainability has been central to them. Their products are natural and organic, and they have been from the outset. The natural aspect was important, not only in order to avoid harmful chemicals, but as a mean to raise the overall product quality. They have applied the same strict rules when formulating new products and adding them to their range. In summation “This is green” means that Tangent GC skin and garment care products are:
- Organic and vegan - Cruelty and fossil free - Sustainably produced and packaged
Natural and organic: the plants used have been grown organically, without pesticides and chemical fertilizers. They are determined not to add unnecessary toxins to the soil or to the overfertilization of our seas.
They have excluded all animal contents in our products, for example animal fats and waxes, lanolin or beeswax, which are commonly used in skincare products.
Cruelty and fossil free: their products are fossil free which means that we don’t use any petroleum or derivates from petroleum. We don´t want to add to dependence of oil. Or spread avoidable greenhouse gases for that matter. Cruelty free means that our products never have been tested on animals. And they never will be.
Production and packaging: all of their products are produced close to home, in Sweden and neighbouring European countries. This way they cut lots of emission from transportation. All of their bottles are made of bioplastic, a plastic made of plants instead of oil. It binds more CO₂ than it releases viewed over the product’s life cycle. All of their tubes they use are made of aluminium, a lightweight metal that can be recycled forever with maintained product quality.
