Dragör Skincare is a completely natural and highly nourishing skincare range of products that wants to highlight the beauty of women in a natural and sustainable way. Their main focus is on ecology, recycled materials, and raw ingredients, which together make products that take good care of your skin and the environment.
They are completely honest about what they put in their products, how they are made and how they work on your skin. Dragör have composed their products from a unique blend of oils, which are primarily harvested in the Nordic nature for the least possible transport. They believe that the right care with lots of moisture and nourishment provides the most beautiful skin, regardless of skin type and age.
Their organic products are also paraben and perfume-free, and they come wrapped in sustainable packaging that is ingeniously made of recycled plastic from fishing nets and fishing trawls.
Dragör Skincare want to reduce the environmental impact while you as a consumer can be confident in what you put on your skin. They have created Dragör Skincare based on a desire for greater transparency in the beauty industry as well as a greater focus on circularity at all levels. Their products don’t compromise on quality and effectiveness, and at the same time don’t pollute or deplete nature from its resources.
Dragör Skincare challenges the beauty industry's traditional thinking and conventional approach. They do this through an amazing product formulation and packaging choice, all in an ambitious attempt to become Scandinavia’s most sustainable skincare brand.
The oil mixture in Dragör's products contains oil from sea buckthorn, rosehip, rapeseed and hemp together with cloudberry and chamomile extract for incredibly effective results that don’t impact the environment. These ingredients are chosen on the one hand because they complement each other in terms of essential fatty acids, antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients. On the other hand, they come from robust and renewable plants that grow wild in nature. Using local Nordic ingredients requires a different way of thinking, but the end result doesn’t compromise absolutely anything.
By working on the basis of circular principles, where resources are recycled or re-cultivated, Dragör Skincare design as much away from waste and pollution as possible. Having adopted this circular mindset, they ensure to basically never run out of raw materials. The brand only uses renewable, biodegradable raw materials and ingredients. That way, their products don’t pollute if residues end up in nature. For example, one of their main goals is that 75% of raw materials must come from food side streams, such as residues from food production that would otherwise be wasted. Some of their products contain active ingredients like upcycled coffee grounds and consistency enhancers from juice production.
Dragör use only natural organic ingredients sourced as close to their production in Denmark as possible. They want to avoid long transportation in order to diminish their CO2 emissions, which is the reason why you won’t find exotic ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, açai and jojoba oil in any of their products. Furthermore, Dragör Skincare has been approved to participate in the EU’s Green Circular Transformation – a project that analyses their entire value chain and offers an overview of where they can reduce their CO2 footprint, and thus accelerate their sustainable development.
Dragör Skincare are very passionate about reducing the amount of waste we have in the world, especially that of marine plastic and its huge threat to our existence. Thus, the 100% recycled plastic bottles come from fishing nets, fishing trawls and other hard plastic handed in or collected in the sea by their Danish cleantech partner company, Plastix. The product labels are made of the same material as the bottles and lids, so that the entire packaging is sorted together after use. They also try to use as much recycled paper and cardboard as they can. Both them and their suppliers use FSC certified cardboard and paper, thus supporting sustainable forestry.
For Dragör Skincare, sustainability is not just a word they adorn themselves with, but rather the only way they know and want to do business. Their wish is to be the sustainable frontrunner in the skincare industry and their transparency is to be applauded. They make an annual report every year, so that everyone can follow their development. We only wish more brands came forward in disclosing their sustainable efforts as thoughtfully and openly as they do!
The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.
The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.
This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.
Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.
How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.
This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.
How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.
At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
