Clean also means that we are transparent about our ingredients; we receive and keep documentation on each ingredients’ composition, sourcing and purity; perform stability and self-life tests; and back up any claims with study data.

What is Modern Age Skin’s commitment to the environment/sustainability/fair trade?

Before formulating, we do extensive research into how each ingredient or component of our products are sources, manufactured and certified. We choose to partner with suppliers who have an environmental and sustainable focus to their businesses as well as those who are committed to fair trade practices for the farmers with whom they work.

Since it’s impossible to acquire 100% of our ingredients as environmentally conscious and sustainably sourced, we have partnered with EcoCart to offset any emissions created by the manufacturing and transportation of our products.

The skin care industry has come long way, but we still have more work to do until all ingredients and components available can be considered environmentally friendly.

Is your packaging considered “green”?

Our bottles are one of the few colored, glass bottles that can be curbside recycled.

Are your ingredients organic/EcoCert/COSMOS approved?

Where we can, we choose organic, EcoCert and COSMOS approved ingredients in our formulations. We continually review our suppliers and add those that can support this focus in our ingredients.
