Q: Using eco-friendly products is important to me. I know MyChelle natural skincare products are good for my body—but are they also OK for the environment?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetitican Catie Wiggy responds:
MyChelle began with a passion as pure and natural as the Rocky Mountains. Founded in Colorado over 12 years ago, MyChelle Dermaceuticals’ singular obsession has been to create the most effective, nontoxic skin care products in the country. Today, our products deliver powerful, quick and visible results without using nasty ingredients or toxic chemicals.
MyChelle is a company that proudly, yet humbly, pursues a path that we call the MyChelle Purpose. Whether we are pioneering renewable packaging (which we did), supporting young women on wilderness expeditions (which we do) or empowering women in their pursuit of their personal definition of true beauty (a deep passion of ours), our goal is to breathe inspired energy into the causes and organizations that work as hard – if not harder – than we do every day.
The environment is a top priority to us and we do our absolute best to make eco-friendly, mindful choices when it comes to Earth and our shared planet. Our packaging is created from 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper, and therefore our packaging and containers are recyclable. Not all MyChelle packages are literally colored green, but our eco-friendly practices did garner us a 2010 Responsible Packaging Award. We use only 100% FSC-certified, PCW paperboard boxes, #2 HDPE plastic and recyclable glass containers.
We source ingredients with integrity for Mother Nature. We use eco-friendly, green-house lab technology to craft 100 percent vegetarian, all-natural yet very effective formulas. MyChelle also looks at the impact of our products on the environment. Look for MyChelle’s reef safe sun protection formulas that block damaging UVA/UVB rays while not harming the ocean’s coral reefs and wildlife.
We journey the world over searching for the most potent natural ingredients Mother Nature has to offer. Whether it’s edelweiss from mountain tops, buddleja safely harvested from the rain forest or the amazing pumpkin right here in our backyard, our sources for wild crafted plants and hand selected fruits reflect our stubborn pursuit of the highest quality plant extracts, plant stem cells and essences. In the end, the consumer is guaranteed that each product is packed with a unique and proprietary combination of ingredients at the highest concentration levels that feeds her skin with all the nutrients it could ever need. The result is healthier, more radiant skin that glows with appreciation!
