Brand sustainability

For SKØN SKINCARE, sustainability starts with the most important and proud part of their products: the ingredients. 90-95% of SKØN products consist of EcoCert certified raw materials, as a guarantee that the cultivation method has gone green and is environmentally responsible. Skin health is primordial for SKØN, reinstated by their close collaboration with a pharmacist and a biochemist. Their products are extremely rich and concentrated, as the majority of their range is water-free and contains no-filler ingredients.

 

By pursuing to strip down their products and get to the core of what actually works for the consumer, it will in turn provide them the opportunity to make their production even greener in the future.

 

Materials & Packaging

The biodegradable raw materials you find in SKØN SKINCARE are bought through Danish suppliers who have contact and knowledge of the manufacturer. The entire manufacturing takes places in their own Danish production under green and environmentally friendly working conditions. That allows them to be at the forefront of development and thereby optimize the content of their products, but also in their production processes. Their packaging consists of glass and PET plastic sourced from England and China, respectively, and all transport takes place by ship. They look forward to switching to a Danish provider or somewhere much closer as soon as they can place larger orders.

 

Labour Rights

SKØN acts strongly on matters of social responsibility as well. They have a social focus on those people who do not necessarily fit into the normal labour market, who suffer from an illness or who have difficulty finding a foothold. They create responsible jobs based on healthy values ​​set aside for people who want to thrive and strengthen. SKØN SKINCARE acknowledges the aspects that need fine-tuning, but they do all that’s in their power to constantly optimize and turn up all the green parameters.

Product Lifecycle

Design

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.

    Material & Material Extraction

    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.

      Transportation of Materials

      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.

        Production

        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.

          Packaging

          How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.

            Distribution

            This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.

              Usage

              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.

                End of life

                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.
