Since our establishment in 1996, Benedetta has been committed to maintaining a Conscious Beauty business model. We are proud of our insistence on using only post-consumer shipping materials and recyclable packaging.
Benedetta has the cleanest manufacturing practice possible to minimize our environmental impact. We use only non-toxic cleaners in production to guarantee no chemical runoff and minimize our water waste and usage. We store all of our raw materials in glass or stainless steel to prevent plastic leaching and preserve our materials at their best.
Our preparations focus on preserving the vibrancy of the product beyond the organic and biodynamic standard. Our Seed to Bottle philosophy ensures that we only source raw materials when they are naturally available from our farmers and distributors after harvest, and quick transport of botanicals in stainless steel containers or glass.

Occasionally we do receive questions about the ethical sourcing of one ingredient or another.
As Benedetta uses botanical ingredients exclusively, we understand that many raw botanical materials may become over produced for profit before sustainability. With the over-saturated plant-based skin care market, supply and demand has put many of these botanical materials in jeopardy.
In regards to our use of Palm Kernel Oil, Benedetta only purchases from suppliers that are certified organic and carry the sustainable certificate from RSPO. Benedetta would never–to the best of our knowledge–purchase a raw material that endangers lives, causes deforestation, or is a detriment to the environment.
“As a supporter of certified organic, biodynamic and ethically harvested materials, and as Benedetta’s founder, I refrain from the use of endangered botanicals that are harmful to any ecosystem.”
We store all of our raw materials in glass or stainless steel to prevent plastic leaching and preserve our materials at their best. Furthermore, we package all of our products in glass, aluminum, and Miron glass when necessary.
Miron glass is full-spectrum violet glass designed specifically to filter almost all visible light. Our Miron glass packaging protects and preserves the vibrancy and potency of our products to maximize the lifetime and efficacy of each and every bottle. When we cannot use glass, we use either coated aluminum and BPA & EA-free recyclable packaging. Our insistence on high quality packaging, while expensive, gives us the freedom to create a powerful and concentrated line without the use of phthalates, plasticizers, binders or preservatives.
Our products have never been and never will be tested on animals.
Botanical sustainable skincare is a must for any person who wants the most potent products and also contribute to sustaining our environment and ecology. Why wouldn’t you not buy sustainable products when they’re so good for the skin of the planet and for your skin. Botanical skincare wellness is how we started our formulations in 1995, and have continued ever since. Eco friendly botanicals are the building blocks of our formulations. Your healthy skin care routine should include botanicals that reflect an overall health of the earth as we move forward in the 21st century.
As a sustainable skincare brand we’re very selective with our suppliers. This applies to all the growers and vendors we work with. Eco friendly skincare as a concept has been around for a number of years, joining the eco friendly impetus that has become part of even mainstream brands. But, be careful of the mainstream as they can be disingenuous. We’re original eco-friendly skincare product crafters.
Zero waste skincare products are part of our overall sustainable practice. Looking for zero waste skin care products, then please shop with us.
