SIMI VALLEY, California – (COMMERCIAL LINE). Through their partnership with CleanHub, an organization aimed at halting large-scale ocean plastic pollution, Derma E will support the protection and conservation of our oceans and assist in the recovery of the nearly 11 million tons of plastic waste that they enter our oceans every year.
As a Southern California-based brand, Derma E has long been committed to keeping our oceans and beaches clean. For years they have supported organizations including Keep America Beautiful and Ventura County Coastal Clean Up. Now, as a co-processing partner of CleanHub, Derma E is committed to collecting, recovering and disposing of 10,000 pounds of non-recyclable plastic (e.g. grocery bags, wraps and food containers), which is more plastic than is produced , before it enters our oceans (about 2,400,000 plastic bottles). Non-recyclable plastic makes up 80% of all ocean plastics, and CleanHub works with trusted local waste collection companies to specifically use this non-recyclable plastic waste and turn it into alternative fuels. They then use proprietary software that tracks every step of the disposal process from waste collection to final co-processing of the material, monitoring and verifying the recovered volumes as proof that the money invested had the expected impact.
Derma E’s sustainability initiatives don’t end with CleanHub, it’s simply another piece of their expanding sustainability commitments. DERMA E constantly strives to reduce its impact on the environment and improve its conservation efforts within the organization. They recognize their responsibility to their community, customers and our environment, which is why they refuse to use over 2,500 ingredients that are harmful to people and the planet in their products. Plus, they’re proud to be a Leaping Bunny certified brand, the gold standard for cruelty-free beauty. Currently their packaging components are 100% recyclable and offset 100% of conventional electricity consumption with wind energy certificates. Their natural mineral sunscreens are formulated with ingredients identified as safe for coral reef ecosystems, and their nanoparticle-free, chemical-free broad spectrum zinc oxide is tested and proven to be reef safe. DERMA E’s proven clean beauty collection of dermatologist-recommended skin, hair, body and sun care is certified 100% vegan, GMO-free, cruelty-free and jumping.
2022 also marks the 15th year of production of DERMA E with wind energy, reducing its environmental footprint by offsetting 100% of the conventional use of electricity with wind energy certificates. This renewable energy purchase supports DERMA E in its ongoing effort to fully offset carbon dioxide emissions. Furthermore, as part of the “Close the Loop ™” initiative underway, in 2022 DERMA E will begin to remove secondary packaging to reduce waste and to replace glass packaging with PCR plastic to lighten the weight of the product and reduce gasoline. along the entire supply chain.
