3 Reasons Why Sanctuary Spa is an Eco-friendly Brand

Jul 16, 2021 | Products

Vegan skincare and cruelty-free brands are no passing trend. As the beauty industry’s environmental footprint is increasingly scrutinised, there’s an ever-increasing interest in beauty brands that are vegan and cruelty-free, and use eco-friendly cosmetic packaging.


Fortunately, Sanctuary Spa ticks all of the boxes. Here are 3 reasons why we’re an eco-friendly brand.

Reason 1: We’re PETA-Certified Cruelty-Free

What does cruelty-free mean?

Cruelty-free skincare refers to products that are created without testing or harming animals at any stage of the production process.


Who are PETA?

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is a famous animal rights organisation that is against animal testing. If a product is PETA-certified, you can rest assured that it’s cruelty-free.


Is Sanctuary Spa cruelty-free?

Being listed amongst PETA’s certified cruelty-free brands is a source of pride for us. We make cruelty-free products that aren’t tested on animals. We also don’t work with suppliers who test on animals or sell our products in countries that require animal testing.


Our best cruelty-free skincare


Cruelty-free moisturiser

Our Protect and Illuminate SPF15 cruelty-free moisturiser blends hydrating Shea Butter with radiance-boosting Pink Pomelo, and Vitamins A and E to create a natural, healthy-looking glow. Expect skin to look more even, and feel soft and silky smooth.


Cruelty-free face wash

Formulated with refreshing Jojoba Beads, Almond Oil and gentle Cleansing Actives, our cruelty-free face wash cleanses away dirt and impurities without drying out the skin. Instead, skin feels beautifully soft with a dewy, fresh glow.


Reason 2: Our Body Care Is 100% Vegan

What is vegan skincare?

Vegan skincare refers to products that are formulated without animal products or bi-products, including beeswax and lanolin.


Is Sanctuary Spa vegan?

We’re proud to say that our entire body care and wellness range is 100% vegan. A couple of skincare favourites do contain beeswax, but we’re working towards creating a 100% vegan skincare range by the end of 2021 too.


Our favourite vegan body care


Vegan body wash

A vegan body wash, our Sanctuary Spa Signature Body Wash boasts a rich infusion of essential oils and Jojoba beads to leave skin feeling cleansed, moisturised and silky smooth. Massage into the skin and watch as it transforms from a shower gel into a delicately fragranced foam, enveloping wet skin and awakening your senses with a burst of sumptuously aromatic cleansing.


Vegan body balm

Our Wellness De-Stress Warming Body Balm is infused with fragrant Ginger and Rosemary Oil to help you relax and unwind, while improving circulation and relieving tired muscles. Expect this warming body balm to reduce tension in just one use and muscles to feel de-stressed after a week.


Reason 3: We’re Striving For Eco-Friendly Cosmetic Packaging

Why eco-friendly cosmetic packaging matters

In 2018, a study conducted by Zero Waste found that 120 billion units of packaging are produced by the global cosmetics industry every year, with a lot of these being non-recyclable plastics. We want to be part of the change that helps to reduce this number.


Sanctuary Spa embraces refillable packaging

To help reduce plastic waste, we’ve just launched our new refillable body wash and antibacterial hand gels. With 80% less plastic, these pouches are the equivalent of two 250ml Sanctuary Spa body washes or two 250ml Sanctuary hand washes. Simply dispense into your existing Sanctuary bottle and use as normal. It’s great for the planet and even better for your skin!


Sanctuary Spa’s packaging is recyclable or reusable

Did you know that all of our Sanctuary Spa gift sets either come in 100% cardboard packaging or sturdy tins that are designed to last? They can either be recycled or reused (we share a few creative ways to reuse your packaging below).
