Impact & Charities
The AKT Elemental Earth Commitment
We exist not only to impact your skin in the most beneficial ways, but to have a positive impact on the world.
At AKT Therapy we want to celebrate our lives, while also conserving our most precious resources.
The way we can best achieve this is by responsible business efforts: from sourcing and packaging to distribution, giving back not only within our own communities but those whose benefits will be echoed around the globe.
A “Less is More” Philosophy
Our skincare philosophy is centred around providing clean, buildable performance driven products that cover multiple uses therefore fewer products clutter up your drawer and our planet.
The Secret is our Supply Chain
We know our suppliers well, they are part of the AKT family, and they are trusted and knowledgable in their sourcing. From the kelp beds of southern Baja to the northern bogs of Quebec we are in direct contact with our ingredients.
Packaging with Purpose
Our sustainable packaging initiatives are always evolving, this is a place even a small company like ours works hard to make a difference, this is why we have forgone secondary packaging for so long. Our shipping boxes are made with 80% post-consumer recycled materials printing with algae based ink, recyclable glass bottles. See our individual product pages for specific disposal instructions.
No Animal Testing
We love animals, it’s our commitment to cuteness and kindness.
We offset our annual carbon emissions by purchasing carbon credits through EcoCart and support the work of IDA (International Dark Sky Association) that helps protect designated Sky Parks.
Shockingly, 80% of the population suffers from light pollution which directly affects human health + disrupts the ecosystem and wildlife. If you can’t see the stars from the city, visit Skyglow to check and see what you can do to reduce your impact!
We are humbled by the work of the following organizations where we also contribute.
Jersey Pits, HSVC, California Wildlife Center, Animals Asia- Moon Bears, I Stand With My Pack, Dog Prana, Dark Sky Foundation, Native Youth Sexual Health Network (NYSHN)
