Our Philosophy

As natural as possible

Base Formula is proud to supply premium quality aromatherapy products that are ethically sourced and produced to the highest of standards. Drawing on many years experience our aromatherapy experts have created a range of skincare products that combine therapeutic essential oils and other botanical ingredients to nourish and care for the skin. We are firm believers that beauty should be as natural as possible and free of unnecessary chemicals. We are therefore pleased to confirm that our products DO NOT contain:

  • Parabens
  • Mineral oil
  • Phthalates
  • Genetically modified ingredients
  • EDTA
  • Artificial colours
  • Synthetic fragrance

Responsibly sourced ingredients

We work hand in hand with suppliers to ensure that all of our aromatherapy oils and natural ingredients are ethically produced and responsibly sourced. This covers certified organic materials, Fair Trade products, traceability and certification.

Environmentally friendly packaging

We’re working hard to supply our wonderful wellbeing products in recycled and eco-friendly packaging that won’t pollute our planet. It is important that our products are packaged appropriately and easy to use, and that they arrive in perfect condition. Although we can’t promise zero-waste, we have taken many steps to reduce the amount of packaging that we use, and to ensure that it is as environmentally friendly as possible.

We have removed the plastic shrink-wrap hygiene seals from all essential oils and are also discontinuing these on other bottles and jars. Our plastic bottles are made from recycled material and are also recyclable. Our jars and aluminium bottles can be re-used or recycled too. We use brown cardboard boxes and recycled brown paper for protection and padding – both of which are recyclable. We also use Tegrabond tape to seal our parcels. Made from natural kraft paper with starch adhesive it's 100% sustainable, 100% biodegradable and 100% recyclable without having to be segregated from cardboard.

Not tested on animals

Base Formula is against cruelty to animals and we fully support the EU's decision to implement a complete ban on the sale of animal-tested cosmetics and ingredients (this includes products or materials that may have been tested outside of the EU). We can also confirm that our suppliers do not conduct or commission such testing.
