“111SKIN’s goal since conception has been to deliver skincare that is science-led, pioneering, medically-inspired, and able to provide results. The same passion that we have for our product we have for our natural world. We have benefited from having gone through the Butterfly Mark certification as this allowed us to understand what areas of our business needed improvement and what are the steps that we needed to take to operationalise sustainability.”
– Dr. Yannis Alexandrides M.D F.A.C.S & Eva Alexandridis, founders of 111SKIN
As 111SKIN’s scale of business continues to grow, occasionally they are forced to transition between different suppliers depending on their capacity needs. However, because of their work whilst obtaining the Butterfly Mark, all aspects of the product (including key active ingredients and componentry) remain the same. Whilst they produce a small number of units with a longstanding Far East manufacturer for beauty box partnerships, all raw materials are sourced from their trusted suppliers within Europe and the USA. These suppliers are selected for their policies around product sustainability to ensure the integrity, efficacy, fragrance and texture of their products remain at a consistently premium quality.
Continuing their commitment to product innovation, 111SKIN are also exploring both waterless beauty and working with raw ingredient suppliers to create improved products that are effective without being a drain on the environment. This commitment to biochemistry and lab created ingredients cements their status as a leader in sustainable beauty.
111SKIN’s packaging is both minimal and recyclable. The brand is on track to deliver – by 2024 – packaging that is readily recyclable and includes PCR content. In addition, they are minimising packaging through intelligent design principals and focusing on reducing carbon emissions throughout the supply chain and rethinking the product life cycle.
111SKIN believe that making simple changes have the best impact, and as such are exploring an aluminium alternative to their current glass packaging. Where glass is essential, they are working on reducing weight and making it as light as possible, thus having a positive impact on shipping and supply to minimise carbon emissions.
