At Oak Essentials, we acknowledge that we’re nothing without the ground we walk on—which is why, for us, Earth Day is so much more than a single holiday. Rather, our approach to celebrating the earth is infused into everything we do. From the ingredients that inspire us to the packaging we create, it’s all an homage to the planet we call home. Here are a few of the ways we’re putting in the work.

Earth-First Packaging

Our efforts toward sustainability start with recyclable and reusable packaging—but this Earth Day, we’re taking things a step further by pledging to plant a tree for every order placed today.

So stock up, take part in some good, and when your product hits empty you can keep the cycle going by responsibly recycling each element or cleaning and reusing your bottles and jars in creative ways around your house. We love refilling fragrance bottles with homemade room sprays or storing things like hair ties in our old Moisture Rich Balm jars. 

Eco-Conscious Formulations

What’s inside the jar counts too. At Oak Essentials, we’re committed to products made simply and without compromise. That means minimal ingredient lists and ingredients you can trust to work well while keeping you safe.

Each of our skincare formulas are cruelty-free, non-GMO and organic whenever possible—plus they’re always formulated without silicones, colorants, sulfates, phthalates, parabens, PEGs, petrolatum, mineral oil, and nanoparticles. Safer for you, healthier for the planet. 

Responsibility to All Creatures

We’re also incredibly proud to be Leaping Bunny certified. As the leading authorities on cruelty-free compliance, Leaping Bunny is a widely respected organization that sets the standard for quality and compassion in the formulation of skincare and cosmetics.

It may seem like a no-brainer to some, but as any animal and earth-conscious organization, we know that diligence and attention to the little details can make the biggest difference. Simply put, we're so thrilled to be onboard.
