PLANET

LAND REGENERATION & CARBON INSETTING

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

We are guided by the Science Based Targets with carbon insetting covering 100% of Star Seed's emissions, 100% of all 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 & vegan ingredients only.


Every ingredient has full provenance with organic & wild certifications. We take pride in our partnership with in-country growing communities. Our UK Manufacturers have won multiple Organic, Soil Association & Natural Awards.

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.

PEOPLE

SMALLHOLDER PARTNERSHIPS

The 10% of Quarterly Profits invested in Regeneration support local partners & communities with agroforestry training, seeds, saplings, and infrastructure, ensuring we create a positive change.

EQUALITY & INCLUSIVITY

 We foster an environment where everyone enjoys equal opportunities. We are a female-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.

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.
