Our Sustainability Mission

At Retrouvé, we endeavor always to minimize our environmental impact through the
ingredients that we use, the way in which we package our formulations, and how we
conduct our business. Following are a few of the ways that we are striving toward this goal.

ethical + sustainable ingredient sourcing

Wherever possible, we source exceptional quality ingredients on the market from
suppliers who have ethical and sustainable business practices and history of quality,
including raw material from the produce that we grow ourselves on our farm in Malibu
according to the principles of permaculture.

green dot

Widely recognized throughout Europe, we feature the Green Dot symbol on our
packaging to indicate that we have made a financial contribution to a packaging recovery system.

one tree planted

In 2020, we partnered with One Tree Planted, founded in 2014 to help combat deforestation and global warming. For every product purchased at, we sponsor the planting of a tree. To date and thanks to your generosity, we have sponsored the planting of over 5,000 trees.

pact collection program

Most municipal manufacturing facilities do not have the ability to recycle small components commonly used in beauty packaging – such as caps and pumps - so we have joined forces with the Pact Collection Program, an organization that collects hard-to-recycle packaging or packaging that will not be recycled in curbside recycling systems to find the best and highest use for that material in order for it to be diverted from landfills.

sustainable packaging

We have re-designed the outer packaging for our moisturizers with increased sustainability in mind. Our new boxes are significantly smaller and lighter in weight – these changes allow for less waste and less heavy mailings, both of which help greatly to reduce Retrouvé’s carbon footprint. We take care to use recycled paper, and our kraft cardboard mailers are composed of 100% recycled materials and are 100% recyclable. In addition, our mailers are FSC (Forest Stewardship Council®) certified to ensure that the material originates from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits for local communities. Lastly, the boxes are printed with 100% recyclable, water-based and chemical-free ink.

We are also working to refine the remainder of our packaging in a similar manner.

plastic collective

In addition to continually working to reduce the plastic in our componentry, including utilizing glass bottles, Retrouvé has partnered with the Plastic Collective to help offset our plastic footprint. Plastic Collective is a leading global resource to provide solutions to the plastic waste epidemic.


We are delighted that four of our products – Luminous Cleansing Elixir, Skin Brilliance
Priming Pads, Conditioning Tonic with Chamomile, and Nutrient Face Serum – are certified vegan by Biorius, and we are working to incorporate more vegan
products into our line.
