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.
While we are proud of the strides we have made, we are ever evolving!
It’s your conscious decision to purchase products made with a love and respect for the earth that fuels our growth and ability to give back.
Our Sustainability Promise
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.
Global EffortsWe 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 eco system and wildlife. If you can’t see the stars from city visit Skyglow to check and see what you can do to reduce your impact!
When we say CLEAN we mean squeaky clean!
Elemental Skincare is earth friendly.
We take our time to bring you only well-edited, highly effective and multifunctional formulas. Simple, uncomplicated skincare means one less thing cluttering your vanity and your conscience! That‘s why our products are compostable, recyclable or reusable.
Using less and with intention is the best way to honour ourselves and the planet. Luxury organic skincare means we care!
Our Ship Packaging
We love a cute flyer, especially using our non-toxic algae-based ink!
Boxes and fill are 35% post-consumer materials, and 100% recyclable and our "beans" are corn-based and biodegradable. While we love a good puffed snack, this one might not pass movie night!
