How we work
At Floragy we strive to recycle and reuse as much as possible to reduce waste and this is reflected through the way we make our products. Made by hand in small batches we want to give our customers the freshest and most effective formulas from our workshop in Kent, to contribute and encourage a cleaner way of living.
We don’t believe in unnecessary packaging just to make our brand look good. We fill recyclable glass jars and bottles with our product and use aluminium lids on nearly all of our range.
For some of our products we use Miron glass which protects the oils inside from over exposure to light and heat, preserving the product and therefore an outer box is not needed which helps to minimise our impact further on the environment. The great thing about Miron glass is that it can be infinitely recycled, so no harm to the planet!
Our mailer boxes use brown Kraft card which are made from a minimum of 90% recycled material and we use brown paper void filler, both of which are 100% recyclable.

We believe that everyone can make small conscious decisions when buying products, and that includes us! Our commitment to not individually boxing our skincare range is a small step in saving natural resources and lowering our impact on the environment.
We use organic ingredients where possible and use a handful of suppliers in the UK to source our materials. The partners we work with also share our cruelty free ethos so that we can ensure all of our products adhere to our high standards.
Floragy is vegan friendly and doesn’t use any animal derived ingredients. Our formulas also don’t contain any synthetic preservatives and the oils we use are cold pressed so they are processed without the use of chemicals or solvents in the extraction process. Because of this, we recommend Floragy products to be kept in a cool, dark place to prolong their shelf life. Read more about our ingredients here.
But our commitment to the environment doesn’t stop there. There are more initiatives we can be involved in like supporting more local causes on waste and giving something back to the community. As we grow, our focus will be on working with new partners to do just this.
One Tree Planted
We care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. That’s why we’re thrilled to be partnering with One Tree Planted / @onetreeplanted to commit to planting at least 10 trees every month in various places round the world, such as South America and Africa.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. We’re honoured to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model.
