RESPONSIBLE AND TRACEABLE INGREDIENTS

We have mindfully selected and prioritised ingredients with a lower impact on natural resources.

evaluating sustainability

Partnering with an external agency, Quantis, we assess and evaluate the impact of our chosen actives. Using a science-based method we analyse each step of production, from sourcing and extraction processes to formulations.

We work with our suppliers to ensure their cultivation and production processes align with our sustainability values, whilst supporting local communities and the environment.

getting to the source

We are committed to knowing exactly where the plants behind our ingredients are harvested and transformed and that it is as close as possible to where we formulate our products, minimising out impact as much as possible.

Our long-term goal is to reach 100% traceability for all STELLA skincare formulas.

85%

of the ingredients used in our formulas are traceable up to the country of harvesting*

15%

are traceable up to the continent of harvesting*

Some ingredients are harder to trace than others, yet we are dedicated to achieving this, even within the most complex supply chains.

*based on the total number of ingredients used in our three formulas: Reset Cleanser, Alter-Care Serum and Restore Cream
