How We Care For the Planet While Caring For Your Skin
February 14, 20223 min read
At Wild Ice, we’re motivated by love--for both our customers and the planet. After all, we source our nourishing, cold-kept ingredients straight from Mother Earth, so it’s important to treat her with care.
We’ve developed product packaging unlike any other skincare company on the market so we can be as kind to the environment as possible. (And so you can feel good about what you’re using.) Here are three ways we package our products with the planet in mind.
Wood Caps for Carbon Sequestration
You probably know by now that carbon emissions are an enormous problem for our planet. In fact, they are one of the biggest contributors to global warming.
We can help to combat this problem by taking carbon out of the atmosphere and holding it in another form. This way, it doesn’t contribute to climate change.
This process is called carbon sequestration, and it’s exactly what we’re doing with the wood caps on all of our products. We’re taking carbon in the form of wood and burying it to return carbon to the earth. (This works even if the wood caps aren’t recycled!)
This process doesn’t just make our products carbon neutral, it makes them net carbon negative. And we’re the only skincare company out there using wood blocks for carbon sequestration in every single product.
Minimal Plastic Use
If you’ve used a Wild Ice product, then you know all of our skincare is packaged in beautiful, smooth glass. Not only does it look better on your countertop than a typical plastic bottle, but it’s also much better for the environment.
Unfortunately, it seems that the skincare industry at large is using more plastic than ever. In fact, the cosmetics industry used 120 billion units of plastic packaging in 2020. Not only is this not good for the planet, it’s not good for you.
Microplastics can leach into your skincare and find their way into your skin. Combine this with the fact that scientists are now discovering microplastics in all human organs and you have a recipe for illness and disease. No thank you! We’ll stick with glass--for both the earth and ourselves.
Sadly, it’s not just skincare packaging itself that can contribute to waste. The materials that skincare is shipped with can also take a huge toll on the planet. If you’re like us, you cringe every time you see a bunch of plastic bags or styrofoam packing peanuts. We knew there was a better way!
We package our products with 100% recyclable corrugated fiberboard partitions that perfectly fit our square glass products and keep them safe in transit. That way, we don’t need any other fillers that simply end up in a landfill.
So there you have it! Three ways we care for our beautiful planet every time we package our skincare and ship it off to you. We should also mention that because our skincare is all natural and devoid of toxic preservatives, we’re keeping our waterways cleaner every time it’s washed down the drain.
When you use Wild Ice, you’re doing so much good for the planet--simply by washing your face! To get started with caring for earth and your skin today, we invite you to try our four step facial set, which saves you 20 percent over buying each product individually.
Mila (pronounced 'mee-luh') is mother of three, wife, and founder of Wild Ice, an all-natural cold-preserved skincare line dedicated to bringing the best of care to women everywhere.
The Cyro-C serum is by far the best vitamin C serum I have ever used. I love skincare so much and you can tell this product is made with care. The smell is amazing and I get complimented almost daily about how my face looks glowing since I started using. Mila was so kind and knowledgeable. I will definitely be rebuying once I run out!
I have oily/combination skin, so I pump/mix both and then apply, otherwise it’s too oily and doesn’t absorb quickly. This works so well! It makes your skin smell great even hours after application. I only wish this trick for oily skin was on the instructions of bottle. I didn’t realize until I saw it on one of their insta stories. Great product otherwise!
I love the 4-step facial products. The routine is easy and simple and the results are amazing. This is one of the best product lines I have used on my face, and I can really see a difference in my skin. I first purchased two of the products at Market Days in Tallahassee. When I finished the products, I went back to what I was using previously. It was not long until I decided that Wild Ice is the perfect product line for me and my dry skin. I am hooked.
I recently found these products and amazing creator at our local farmers market and all I can say is WOW! I was instantly sold from the moment I applied the cold-kept cream to my skin. I'll absolutely be going back for more from her skincare line and watching allll of her informative videos on their social media page
This is absolute gold in a bottle that smells like fresh oranges. My skin is sensitive and I do have rosacea and it drinks Cryo-C up! My complexion has greatly improved and am so happy I made the splurge. This, along with the toner, are new repeat buys for my skin routine. I look forward to my skin routine AM & PM just because it feels and smells amazing!
This has improved my skin and is very refreshing. I have sensitive skin and rosacea and this has not caused any breakouts. I use this with Cryo-C and absolutely love it! Will definitely be a repeat buy to my skin routine.
I recently purchased the complete skin care package and I absolutely love it! I’m having a hard time deciding which product is my favorite. The cleanser makes my skin so soft and helps with my overall skin appearance, The serum brightens my skin, one of the best I’ve tried and the moisturizer! It has improved every single issue I’ve been concerned with. Love love love the entire collection! Thank you so much!
I just started with this to see how my skin took it before I invested in any more products. I have used it consistently for several weeks and WOW. My skin literally feels more healthy and looks it, too! And my husband is always telling me I smell good right after I put it on. :)
I found this product at the Rosemary Beach farmers market. It is amazing! Have been using it for 2 weeks and my skin feels wonderful. I have rosacea and use others products for it, but this adds to the regimen and soathes your face. Love that it is cold (if you put it in fridge) which is so calming in the summer!
