We launched in 2018 with the goal of pioneering an ethical contemporary apothecary brand in response to some of the environmental impacts caused by the cosmetic market, such as micro-pollutants, single use plastic and excess packaging.
Findings published in the journal Nature this week outline that global human-made mass exceeds all living biomass - meaning we now live in a world where there are more man-made objects than living organisms. Unsurprisingly then at this point in modern life, we touch plastic more than we touch our loved ones.
With more than 120 billion units of packaging are produced globally every year by the cosmetics industry, conscious consumer is no longer a trend, it is an urgency. J-RAO Contemporary Apothecary are focused on promoting sustainable consumption and production with the goal of helping to turn the tide on plastic waste.
We are a Circular Business Ambassador and embrace circular economy through design. Our bathing salts are also a generous 500g meaning products last longer so less shipping, and we have replaced plastic with aluminium and glass which can be easily cleaned and reused.
