Track Our Progress

Green Manufacturing & Certification

We feel a massive responsibility to reinvent the personal care manufacturing industry. Our vision is to establish truly green processes from raw material purchase to delivery of your finished goods. We strive to invest back into our community, minimize our earthly footprint, and challenge the brands we work with to do the same.

Recycling Initiative

Robust Recycling

A robust Recycling Program was initiated and staff were trained on the how-to’s or recycling products commonly found in manufacturing environments. We also started our in-house re-purposing Program. We find uses for, and give life to items that would normally end up in our landfills! Reusing shelving, office furniture, office supplies, manufacturing equipment, etc.
