At TOK Beauty not only do we want to provide simple and high quality beauty products, but we are committed and on a mission to offer products that are packaged and shipped sustainably. While we recognize that single use plastic has become a cause for concern, we have consciously decided to use aluminum packaging and recyclable plastics where we can to help make a difference.
Aluminum is a sustainable material and it is 100% recyclable. It can be endlessly reprocessed without loss of the metal quality. The recycling process uses only 5% of the energy required for production. It is lightweight and can be transported easily, which also equates to a lower carbon footprint.
Our packaging can be recycled through Terracycle. Terracycle is a globally recognized company that is able to properly seperate recyclable components.
In addition, we also send your orders in compostable mailers or recycled unit cartons and shipper boxes, which are protected with 100% recyclable, reusable and biodegradable packaging. The packing peanuts that are included with your order, are made from organic starch and decompose in water leaving no waste.
We recognize that that using more sustainable packaging options won’t solve our planet’s plastic challenge, but we can do our small part to take a step in the right direction.
TOK Beauty operates from a home office space. As a small business, we package and ship everything from our home in Canada.
At TOK Beauty, we are on a mission to create clean and effective beauty products using ingredients derived from nature.
We formulate and manufacture without sulfates (SLS and SLES), parabens, methylisothiazolinone/methylchloroisothiazolinone, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, petrolatum, mineral oil, chemical sunscreens, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, triclocarban, aluminum and talc. For more information on toxins we avoid, check out the Environment Defence Resource or Gillian Deacons resource.
As a founder that has sensitive, dry skin and rosacea, I am conscious about choosing ingredients that are least likely to cause skin irritations and allergic reactions. With that said, it may still be possible that you are sensitive to a naturally sourced ingredient. Our products do not contain gluten, tree nuts, or bismuth oxychloride (common mineral irritant).
We do not test our products on animals, nor do we purchase ingredients from suppliers that do. TOK Beauty has been certified as a cruelty-free brand by the Leaping Bunny program. Some of our products are also vegan (contain no animal by-products)
