CALM Skin Care Green Mission Statement
Reduce Environmental Impact
CALM Skin Care, Inc strives to reduce environmental impact with sustainable aluminum packaging, Eco Refills, unisex products, natural, organic, cruelty free ingredients, and the informed buyer. Our containers are reusable and easy to recycle with energy efficient Aluminum, while Eco Refills for some of our products put the choice for anti-excess packaging in the hands of our customers. Choose to refill a CALM container, your own container or just use the CALM resealable bag by itself. For other products like lip balms, we offer biodegradable paper tubes.
In the changing world, why separate? Our products are gender neutral and our full disclosure policy means that all ingredients are listed and explained so that buyers can shop wisely. CALM products are certified cruelty free by Leaping Bunny. We seek to educate our customers with full disclosure ingredients, diy solutions and powder based ingredients with no or low amounts of preservatives that are inherently sustainable. CALM represents the promises made to the customer and to the Earth so that together we can help make a cleaner, safer place for generations to come.
Full Disclosure Ingredients
Our full disclosure policy means that all natural skincare ingredients, bath / body and makeup natural ingredients are listed and explained. We work with people with allergy issues, psoriasis, eczema and other issues and realize how important it is to have minimum fragrance but maximum goodness. Some of CALM skincare, bath & body and makeup products are vegan, but we do use beeswax and honey.
Cruelty FreeCALM Skin Care, Inc is recognized by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics’ (CCIC) Leaping Bunny
Program for administering a cruelty-free standard. The
Leaping Bunny Program provides the best assurance that
no new animal testing is used in any phase of product development by the
company, its laboratories, or suppliers.
Sustainable Anti-Excess Packaging
CALM Natural Skin Care products and Eco Refills are packaged in resealable kraft paper bags. This Anti-Excess Packaging solution means the consumer can either use the product straight out of the bag or pour it into their own container.
Easy to Recycle
Our aluminum containers are easy to recycle and aluminum is considered one of the most energy efficient form of recycling.
* Recycling aluminum cans takes 95 percent less energy than creating new ones.
* The energy it takes to produce one can could produce 20 recycled cans.
* The energy saved from recycling one aluminum can could power a 100-watt light bulb for four hours or a television for three hours

Not all recyclable products deserve the bragging rights that aluminum does, but some materials come close. Each CALM aluminum container is marked with universal recycling symbols and numbers so the consumer knows how to recycle it.
Minimum fragrance and as simple as possible. Just a few core products that cover the most important part of any person’s routine, and sticking to natural and organic ingredients.
We live in a world where many things are mass produced. Not that there is anything necessarily wrong with that. It’s great that some things are manufactured in massive quantities in order to fill a worldwide demand for them. At CALM we feel everything is better for you when it’s made with a heart and a hand.
CALM Vision Statement
I envision a future where shopping for skincare is like shopping in the fresh food section at the grocery store with consumers educated enough to create their own recipes with readily available ingredients. A future in which we cease the purchase of plastic containers and heavily preserved products and petrochemical based plastic packaging is replaced with 100% biodegrable materials. I envision a future where much, much less is so much more.
I hope you will join me in that vision,
