About Éminence Organic Skin Care

 

THE COMPANY

Since their inception in 1958, Éminence have been using sustainable farming and green practices to create natural, organic and Biodynamic® products.

They believe in providing the best skin care products possible. The products are proudly free of parabens, animal by-products, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, harmful colorants and fragrances, mineral oils, petroleum, and other harsh cosmetic chemicals.

Éminence continue to use hand-picked fresh ingredients to create products that contain potent healing and beautifying properties. Many of these ingredients are combined with pure waters drawn from a thermal hot spring lake containing minerals and trace elements found nowhere else on earth. 

The products are handmade without any severe heating or hydrogenating processes that can affect the nutritional content and potency of natural ingredients. Vitamins are captured in their all-natural fresh base, offering dramatic results as actual seeds, pulps and peels impart regenerative and healing powers that only nature can produce.

Éminence are constantly looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. Éminence proudly uses wind energy and solar power energy in the making of their products and - a tree is planted for every product sold

BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PLANTING TREES

 

Over 17 Million Trees Planted Worldwide

Through the Forests for the Future initiative, Eminence Organics plants a tree for every retail product sold, allowing them to support communities in developing countries. 

Eminence Organics is the first and only skin care company to plant over 17 million trees!

Forests Can Change The Future.

Trees help restore the environment, reduce the impact of climate change and create a greener planet for future generations. 

Éminence have planted trees in more than 22 countries around the world. 

In developing countries, this helps communities grow their own food and build sustainable incomes for their families. 

Several climate-smart agroforestry practices have been developed to improve crop yields and revitalise soil health, water use efficiency and carbon storage.

 

Award-Winning Recognition

In 2016, Eminence Organics received the International Spa Association’s (ISPA) Innovate Award for Philanthropic Initiatives for the Forests for the Future program. The life-changing impact of the Forests for the Future initiative is only possible because of the ongoing support from their dedicated spa partners.

 

 

THE IMPACT OF A SINGLE TREE

A single tree can produce approximately 260 pounds of oxygen per year. Trees help lower air temperature to combat climate change while stabilising the soil by preventing erosion through their roots. Trees contribute to the fertility of land through nitrogen fixation and increasing water penetration.

Eminence Organics' Forests for the Future Program helps train farmers in developing countries on how to build productive and sustainable crops and farms. Éminence plant a tree for every product sold, enabling the development of rural communities, empowering local people to restore their environment, grow their own food and build a sustainable income and future for themselves, their families and their communities. Eminence Organics is proud to be able to continually contribute to the development of these regions.

By planting specific types of fast-growing trees, fruit trees, hardwoods and food crops in a systematic manner over a four-year period, families can positively change their lives forever. Program participants plant thousands of trees that provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuelwood and a 400% increase in their annual income in four years.

This program has achieved specific milestones including:

  • Over 200 farming families trained and supported – protecting approximately 2,000 people from extreme poverty
  • A total of 82% of farmers have seen significant income increases
  • At least 400,000 fruit, nut and forestry trees planted each year for household consumption and sale.

 

We hope you enjoy Éminence as much as we do.
