Here at Botanical Republic, we are doing our best to take care of those around us, emotionally, physically, and hygienically in this very uneasy time. We hope you are doing the same by reaching out to one another for support, be it remotely, and making choices that are safest for you. Like you, we are concerned about recent developments surrounding COVID-19, also known as coronavirus. We have been closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19 and adopting precautionary procedures to remain operational.
We are enforcing all Center for Disease & Prevention (CDC)'s advised guidelines in regards to travel and self-quarantine where applicable. On a daily basis, our workplace is fully sanitized. Health and hygiene are a priority here at Botanical Republic. Clean beauty is all about transparency, and in the light of the recent Pandemic, we think you may be interested in the caution we take, start to finish, to provide you with a natural, clean product in every sense of the word.
This is our process:
To start, we source our ingredients, fresh, from five select suppliers here in the United States. This sets us apart from traditional skincare, which often compromises quality by skipping fresh ingredients in favor of cheap fillers and chemical preservatives at the expense of your skin. We have great relationships with these companies and have seen first hand that all ingredients are ethically sourced and of the highest standard.
All of our distillates, AKA Hydrosols, are made with plants, herbs, and flowers that come directly from local farms in the Northwest Region. In fact, we sterilize, craft, and pack every product by (masked and gloved) hand here in Los Angeles so that we KNOW it's being done right.
We only use glass bottles and jars for a few reasons. Glass packaging doesn't contribute to the plastic waste that is common in the beauty industry, and it doesn't interfere with the freshness or purity of the product. Plastics and metals can potentially leach into liquids if damaged, heated, or low quality. When the glass comes in, we have a three-step, wash, sanitize, and sterilize process to ensure the vessel is crystal clean before the product goes inside. The bottles must be pristine before they are filled.
Everything is made in small quantities, so there is no need for artificial preservatives or harmful synthetic ingredients. Our products are fresh on delivery and your skin benefits from the beautifying power of 100% active ingredients, just as nature intended. Our process is a big part of our product; quality, clean beauty you can count on.
