An Anti-Ageing Brand
That Thinks Like a Natural Brand
Environmental welfare is a cause close to many of our hearts. At Medik8, we reduce our environmental footprint at every opportunity. We believe in ‘green chemistry’. This is the science of making products using an energy efficient process; from the sourcing of ingredients to initial research and final manufacturing. Even our buildings are run from 100% renewable energy sources. We choose to do all this because it is better for the environment and can provide formulations which are better for the skin. We couldn’t do it any other way.
Recycled & Recyclable
Medik8 use FSC certified card for all of our paper matierals and cartons which means it has been sourced from well-managed forests or recycled sources. You will see the FSC symbol on all of our packaging as a mark of dedication to the cause. We try to minimise paper waste in our cartons to be as eco-friendly as possible.
Not only are we recyclable, we are made of mostly recycled materials. One of our primary company focuses is to increase our use of recycled materials. In 2018 we removed all plastic inserts from our cartons and replaced it with recycled card, saving nearly 3 tonnes of plastic every year. This makes our cartons completely recyclable. Medik8’s glass bottles are made from 40% recycled glass and we are looking to increase this number in the near future. And of course, in line with European regulation, we do not test on animals. Read more about our product testing policy here.
We use cold processes during manufacturing wherever possible. This means many of our formulas can be blended at room temperature. Heating large amounts of product for blending requires a lot of energy, so we try to avoid this if we can during the blending process.
As a brand rooted in science and nature, we love and respect sea life. That’s why we are 100% microbead-free and have been for years. Instead of using plastic beads which are damaging to marine life, we only use natural exfoliators such as jojoba beads found in Pore Refining Scrub™ and bamboo micro-exfoliators as found in Brightening Powder Cleanse™.
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
At Medik8, we strive to create innovative formulations and treatments that impact the skincare industry. Likewise, we believe that it is undeniably important to support charitable organisations that have an incredible positive impact on those in need. Rather than choose just 1 charity each year, we have built close-knit, long-term relationships with a number of charities that we will continue to support as we grow.
As a company rooted in science, supporting this valuable research is important for human kind. Our company has made a donation to Cancer Research UK every month for more than 10 years.
Noah’s Ark Children's Hospice
A charity local to our head office in North London. Without a children’s hospice in our region, this inspirational charity are building one themselves called The Ark. It will provide safe, dignified and compassionate end of life care.
Make A Wish Foundation
We are proud to make monthly donations to the Make A Wish Foundation, an inspiring non-profit organisation that arrange amazing experiences for children with life threatening medical conditions.
