Our Conscious Formulations
We’re passionate about supporting local producers and suppliers so we make it a priority to formulate our products with local ingredients wherever possible. Although many of Alpha-H’s ingredients are sourced from certified sustainable RSPO suppliers, we’re working towards formulating exclusively with sustainable sources so that we can continue to minimize our impact on the environment, ecosystems and communities, while also championing sustainable native ingredient sources.
We also never formulate with any questionable ingredients that could cause harm to ourselves or our environment. See here for more information on our Clean Formula Commitment.
We choose post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials whenever possible and try to ensure that almost everything we send out is recylable. Nonetheless, packaging is a complex area; and we are the first to admit there is no perfect solution. There are pros and cons of both glass (heavy to ship, great to recycle) and plastic (light to ship, can be recycled) - so we use a mix of both, and are always working to innovate and improve, offering our customers and the planet most sustainable versions of ourselves.
Reinventing waste with NuGrow
These are used for land rehabilitation projects such as a growing medium or as a substitute for synthetic fertilisers. They rejuvenate degraded land by improving ecological and biological integrity through improved soil fertility and micro-life.
Leaping Bunny Certified
Alpha-H is now certified cruelty free by the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny Programme, the most globally recognisable certification for cruelty free products.
This certification is the best assurance that a company does not, and their suppliers do not, test on animals. Our products have been made without causing pain of suffering to animals.
Cruelty free is a term that is often applied to final products, but as a certified Leaping Bunny brand we’ve ensured that all our products and all our ingredients, at all parts of the supply chain, are truly cruelty free.
Alpha-H underwent a rigorous audit of the brand’s supply chain and ingredients, resulting in Leaping Bunny certifying that our products and ingredients are not tested on animals at any point in the process.
Powered by Sustainable Energy
We're making the most of the natural resources here on the sunny Gold Coast, powering our factory and head office with the help of 195 solar panels.
Measuring some 325m2, this clean energy solution will reduce our CO2 emissions by almost 67,000kg per year. Any excess power is returned to the grid.
This means that we're entirely powered by sustainable energy sources, with over 60% of our energy generated by our own solar power at our Gold Coast headquarters.
1% for the Planet
We know that climate change and the destruction of the natural world are defining issues for our community, and that there’s always more we can do when it comes to minimising our environmental impact.
That's why we’re proud members of 1% for the Planet, with 1% of all sales of Liquid Gold going to nonprofit organisations committed to creating a healthy planet.
