PEOPLE

 
SMALLHOLDER PARTNERSHIPS

We wild harvest our botanical ingredients in partnership with smallholder & tribal communities in East Africa. 

We also invest 10% of Quarterly Profits in Growing Regions to support mangrove & tree planting, seed collection, and tree nursery establishment to ensure we create a positive people & planetary change.


EQUALITY & INCLUSIVITY

 We foster an environment where everyone enjoys equal opportunities. We are a female co-founded and managed business. We provide a 360-degree platform for voicing concerns during daily check-ins, with mental health support and a dedication to health & wellness.
 
Throughout our value chain, we promote women's leadership roles, and our suppliers & smallholder farmers are predominantly female.

POSITIVE WORK PRACTICES
 
We ensure responsible working hours for all. We proudly pay above the London living wage, in partnership with University of Oxford.
 
Our direct relationships with in-country partners creates a harmonious network built on trust and respect. Kenyan smallholders receive above-market rates, ensuring that they share in our success. And our manufacturers uphold ISO 9001, ISO 22716, and GMP standards.

PLANET


LAND REGENERATION & CARBON INSETTING

10% of our Quarterly Profits are invested in our Regeneration Programme, protecting & restoring Coastal Kenyan forests & mangroves in sourcing areas. Our wild & regenerative ingredients also sequester soil & tree carbon.

We are guided by the Science Based Targets to reduce our emissions. 100% of our energy is sourced renewably and 99% of our shipping is domestic. We aim to be Net-Zero by 2035 across Scope 1, 2 & 3.

WILD, ORGANIC & VEGAN
 

Our commitment to Wild, Organic & Vegan extends throughout our value chain, ensuring no chemicals, no animal cruelty or testing & adhering to vegan ingredients only.


Every ingredient has full provenance with organic & wild certifications. We take pride in our partnership with in-country growing communities.

WATER CONSERVATION

We source rain-fed, wild-foraged ingredients to maximise positive environmental impact. Our Anhydrous (water-free) Skincare eliminates water usage across our whole product range.

 

Our Circular Packaging is directly reusable & refillable to reduce waste & energy. Our packaging materials are natural, biodegradable, and even plantable with wildflower seeds, adding an eco-luxurious touch to your skincare.

PURPOSE

 
REUSE, REFILL & PLANT

Our product refill system, encourages endless reuse, refill, or even planting for a more regenerative future. We educate & encourage our community to play an active role in the social and environmental regeneration.

WASTE REDUCTION
 
We up-cycle post-consumer paper with 16+ UK wildflower seeds and use every part of botanical plants (root, shoot, nuts, and leaves) to ensure that nothing goes to waste.
 
Our no-plastic policy means you'll only find glass, wood, recycled, and plantable materials in our products. Our manufacturers are Award-winning Plastic Free Champions.

CERTIFICATION & VERIFICATION​
 
We produce an Annual Impact Report, ensuring transparency and accountability. All our product ingredients are fully traceable and our Regeneration Programme is visible in real-time via Explorer.Land Platform (map below). 
 
Our business has been assessed by Green Salon & Country & Town House. And we're on the path to pursuing Positive Luxury and B-Corp certification.

TRACEABILITY

We invest 10% of our profits to grow 150,000+ indigenous trees & mangroves and improve 15,000+ smallholder livelihoods in the next 5 years. Experience Star Seed's Regenerative Skincare in real-time and see the difference we can make.
