Formulating with 100% plant-based ingredients is the only way forward to a healthier and more sustainable future for our planet and communities. As such, all 92 superfoods in our formulations are completely natural, cultivated for their unparalleled skin benefits and harvested with respect to their natural ecosystem.
*All our ingredients are vegan with the exception of beeswax used in Pure Lip Restoration.
Present in nearly all our skincare, sea buckthorn and goji berries are at the heart of our formulations. The varieties we use are harvested from the Tibetan Plateau — in a remote mountainous region, far removed from pollution and human impact — and are highly prized for their phenomenal concentrations of vitamins, fatty acids, and minerals from being grown.
These are the standards we uphold while sourcing every single one of our superfood ingredients. From Moroccan Blue Tansy to Bulgarian Rose, we search the globe to partner with local farmers that produce the quality ingredients that can make a difference for our skin health, and for our planet.
We know how challenging it can be to find unbiased information that guarantees the quality and safety of clean beauty, free of greenwashing or marketing BS. This is why every single one of our formulations are rigorously screened by the Environmental Working Group (EWG).They are a non-profit behind an extensive database, ranking every single ingredient used by the global beauty industry based on their safety and ecotoxicity. EWG has certified that every Akar skincare product is safe and sustainably manufactured.
Where there is nothing to hide, there is nothing to worry about. We want our customers to have easy access to full information on our formulations, and know that they’re making the best choices for their skin and the planet.
