One of the most amazing thing about Haeckels is that the brand sources all its botanicals from the coastline around them. This perfume is no exception. Inspired by Botany Bay, a picturesque bay in the area that has beautiful chalk cliffs. When it rains, a fragrance is released from the cliffs, giving way to the freshness of cliff grasses and sea orache. Let this perfume take you there. Top notes light: elegant citrus. Heart notes: fresh ozone. Base notes: subtle green floral
Pretty self explanatory; just spritz and go.
The story of Haeckels is a truly amazing one. It was founded in 2012 by volunteer beach warden and coastal enthusiast Dom Bridges. Disillusioned by the production ethos of many larger skin care companies Dom wanted to create simple handcrafted products that showcased the surrounding coasts natural ingredients. During the early years of Haeckels, Dom would collect seaweed and local botanicals along the Margate coast in England and bring them back to his family kitchen to experiment. Let's take a moment to say thank you to his wife, who motivated him to take things to the next level and create the brand as we know it today. Not forgetting it's past, Haeckels still plays an active roll in the local community by organising beach cleans and taking part in marine conservation surveys. Their coastal license makes it possible for them to harvest their ocean vegetables direct from a Cretaceous chalk reef allowing them to design unique natural products of exceptional quality. Like we said, a truly amazing story.
Haeckels mostly uses amber glass and a minimum amount of plastic.
One of their main focuses in 2019 is to make all of their packaging either compostable or recyclable. Their bio-designer, Jessica Gregory, is researching and creating new sustainable and compostable materials for Haeckels to house their products in. Soon Haeckels will be launching a brand new material that their skincare and haircare sets and candles will be packaged in: Mycelium, which is grown from mushrooms and entirely compostable. In terms of our products that are currently house either in plastic, or with plastic elements, they will be moving them over to packaging made of woodchip and the plastic elements such as pumps will be fully recyclable. The seaweed bath will soon be housed in packaging that is fully recyclable.
An A for effort. Really.
