Sustainability Aspects: No harmful ingredients sound like it should always be the case in body care but it is seldom. It comes in IDEO designed sustainable packaging, compostable and make of 100% postconsumer content. If you plant the packaging you grow basil

The Story

Pangea Organic packaging

Based in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, Pangea Organics was founded on the principle belief that together, we can create a new, more sustainable future. They have chosen to help do so one bottle, bar and jar at a time. A small, independent manufacturer of organic bodycare. But more than that, a community of like-minded people who believe in creating products that help rather than harm at every stage of their lifecycle.

Their products have been designed with intention. Therapeutic for both mind and body. Beneficial for both people and the planet. Created and curated by a small group of dedicated individuals for all kinds of people and all kinds of skin.

Their mission is to make body and skincare that is good for you and your body. That’s why they use only plant-based ingredients that nurture you and nourish your skin.

Buying Pangea Organics products does more than make your body feel good. It means you’re supporting sustainable agriculture and culture – everything from fair trade sourcing and organic farming to living wages and the use of renewable, recycled and recyclable resources inside the product and the packaging.

The practice
Pangea products are;

  • Fair trade and organic farmed whenever possible
  • Crafted by artisans in small batches, using pure, organic ingredients that replenish the skin
  • Hand-blended to soothe or stimulate your senses
  • Preserved using the gentlest of methods to retain the nurturing properties of the botanicals in each customized blend
  • The IDEO designed packaging is compostable and made of 100% postconsumer content contains herb seeds that come up if you bury the pack
  • The body care product itself biodegrades in 48 hours (some other products take 200 years!)
  • Honest above all else: all what is in it is on the labels. Weird that that is not standard, isn’t it?

There’s a misconception out there that organic body and skincare means poor performance. Mother Nature, after all, is the longest clinical trial around.
