Embracing Sustain {ability} In Skincare: Our 2024 Commitment

By Samantha Miles, Founder and CEO of Somerset Moss

As we step into 2024, Somerset Moss is excited to continue our journey of sustainability. When we speak of sustainability, we’re not just referring to an abstract concept. It’s about the actions we take every day to sustain our community, our planet, and the quality of our products.

Sustaining Real Connections

At Somerset Moss, we believe in the power of physical connection. This year, we’ll continue to sustain our practice of meeting you in real life, fostering a space for genuine conversations and shared experiences. Our commitment is to maintain these invaluable interactions because we know that in a digital world, the human touch remains irreplaceable.

Environmental Responsibility

Our dedication to environmental stewardship remains stronger than ever. We’re proud to sustain our manufacturing practices that utilize renewable solar energy in a facility that’s nearing 100% passive efficiency. But we won’t stop there. We’re constantly seeking ways to improve, like enhancing our use of fully PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) plastics, and incorporating more recyclable materials like paper and glass into our packaging.

Innovations in Sustainability

2024 will see us exploring new frontiers in sustainable packaging. We’re on the quest for refillable pouches that align with our environmental ethos while maintaining the integrity of our products.

Unwavering Quality and Ethical Sourcing

Our promise to you is unwavering: to sustain the exceptional quality of our products. Diligent sourcing of ingredients is at the heart of what we do, ensuring that every component of our skincare line meets the highest standards of efficacy and ethical procurement.

Expanding Partnerships

This year, we’re excited to seek out new partners who share our vision of sustainability and quality. By expanding our network, we aim to sustain and enhance our distribution channels, ensuring that our products reach you efficiently and responsibly.

Supporting Our Stores and Customers

We hope to sustain and support the stores that stock Somerset Moss. Our commitment is to back them in every possible way, recognizing their vital role in our shared success.

A Mutual Promise

In return, we ask something of you. We invite you to sustain your skincare purchases with small businesses like ours. Make a promise to maintain a regular skincare routine, dedicating time and attention to yourself every day. By doing so, we sustain each other, creating a circle of support and care.

In Conclusion

In uncertain times, the importance of sustaining what matters most becomes even clearer. Let’s join hands in this journey of sustainability, for the health of our planet, the wellbeing of our community, and the quality of our skincare.

One practical way you can join us in this circle of support is by becoming a subscriber.. When you subscribe to your favourite products, you contribute significantly to our mutual journey. This not only helps us predict our cash flow (and yours as you save 10% and more) but also efficiently manage the cadence of our manufacturing. By doing so, you become an integral part of a sustainable model that benefits all involved – from our team to you as our valued customer.

Together, we can make a difference. Let’s sustain each other, our environment, and our commitment to excellence in skincare.

With love and commitment,

Sam Miles

    I suggest finding a zero waste store in your area – no bags, clean products in jars/bottles that you clean and return once finished using so they can be reused again.

    What a wonderful opportunity to try clean and natural products 🙂 My tip for sustainability is to plant your compost! I am growing a mango tree, organic strawberries, ginger and garlic all from grocery discard!

    They’re so much we can do! One of them is bring your coffee from home in a reusable cup.
