Beauty and Responsibility: to us, they go hand in hand.
It's true, we've created some of the healthiest skincare on the planet but we feel our responsibility goes much further than that.
You already know Neitra only uses "the good stuff" and you won't find "extra fluff" like emulsifiers, stabilizers or toxic ingredients...you'll actually be able to pronounce everything on the label. That's good not only for your skin but for the planet; skin care either gets absorbed by your skin or washed off your body...it's got to go somewhere. We want your body to be safe and healthy as well as our rivers, oceans and everything living in those waters too.
We've worked hard to be responsible with the resources we use and we hate being wasteful. Honestly, who needs a "cute little paper box" to be wrapped around a jar of our fabulous Deodorant or one of our incredible Face Serums?
Absolutely NO ONE! If it doesn't serve a purpose, you won't find it in Neitra. We don't do waste - not INSIDE our products or OUTSIDE them either.
Speaking of reducing waste - we've got news to SHARE and we hope you Spread the word too!
Over the last couple of years we've had a local "swap out" program with our Vancouver Tribe members; dropping off used containers to "swap" them out on your next order. This program has grown more and more and it's been fun finding new ways to reduce waste by reusing packaging with you!
And we're announcing a NEW level of responsibility!
Now we're setting Neitra on course to become the First Refillable Skincare Company in Vancouver! Today we're introducing the start of that through REFILLABLE jars for our Large Deodorants - making it easier than ever for you to drop off and pick up your replacements right from our beautiful customer cabinet! These deos are in food grade glass jars with metal lids and will have even more minimal labelling because you already know the goodness inside there!
But wait - just because you don't live in Vancouver doesn't mean your Neitra can't be refillable!
Thankfully, more and more Zero Waste/Refillable Bulk stores are opening up across Canada. We are so inspired by this amazing rate of growth and Neitra is proud to partner with this BEAUTIFUL movement; it's one of those small changes that will lead to a huge positive impact on our world. Is there a Zero Waste/Bulk Store in your area? Feel free to connect us because our aim is to become a leader in this movement. While it's becoming easier to get refillable food, it's still so much harder to get refillable "Food For Your Skin"...and we're here to solve that problem!
We're not only inspired by Mother Nature to create incredible products, we also hope to inspire our customers. We want to support and inform you; raising your awareness about skincare and how it impacts your beautiful body and our magnificent planet and we aim to do that JOYFULLY! We want to bring a little blast of beauty to you each and every day through our products, our posts and the connections we make with you personally...after all, we're all in this together!
"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new."
Now we'd love to hear from YOU!
