Ethics, Safety and Sustainability Statements
NATURAL AND SYNTHETIC MICA
Ethical sourcing is a top priority at Clionadh Cosmetics. We do our due diligence to request documentation and ask questions in order to ensure that the mica used in our products is ethically sourced without any form of child labour or exploitation.
There is a misconception that synthetic mica is an ethical alternative to natural mica. However, synthetic mica is derived from a chemical process that requires natural mica as the input. Therefore, the ethical issue still exists.
The ethics of mica and its sourcing is an issue that Clionadh Cosmetics takes to heart. When possible, we try to use other mineral ingredients in the place of natural or synthetic mica. As Clionadh expands, we will continue our efforts to investigate the origins of our supply chain to authenticate the ethical sourcing of our ingredients.
All operations at Clionadh Cosmetics are done in a sanitary manufacturing environment, including production, cleaning, and packaging. Our employees wear medical-grade face masks, lab uniforms, hair nets, and latex-free gloves. Sanitization of all surface areas and equipment is required between every task, and done multiple time a day.
Additional COVID-19 measures are in place to ensure the safety of our employees, including the increased frequency of our standard hygiene practices.
We are committed to the health and safety of our employees and customers, and do everything we can to ensure a safe environment.
Sustainability is another forefront priority at Clionadh Cosmetics and is considered in all aspects of our business operations. We are conscious of our carbon footprint and continually evaluate our practices to ensure we are lessening the impact on the environment.
All of our eyeshadow and highlighter products are formulated without the use of plastics/micro-plastics.
As much as possible, we avoid the use of single-use plastics. We are working towards switching single-use plastics to recyclable and reusable alternatives.
As we grow, we are continuing to improve our sustainability and overall impact on the environment.
