Our mission for the conservation of nature

Our mission for the conservation of nature

Last week we marked World Nature Conservation Day, a moment dedicated to the global effort to preserve the health of the planet we all share. 

 

It’s a cause very close to our hearts. Modern Botany ingredients are all natural, and grown in a way that does absolutely no harm to the environment. We are proud to support regenerative farming – a system of farming principles and practices that seeks to rehabilitate and enhance our entire ecosystem.

 

For our award-winning self-care formulas, only the best will do. Which is why we are working on incorporating our own, home-grown ingredients in our supply chain, too. Co-founder and director of sustainability John Murray oversees the herb farm at our headquarters in Schull, West Cork.

When selecting crops, we stay true to the soil by choosing native Irish species which thrive in our weather conditions, from flax and borage to calendula and chamomile. These plants are not the most glamorous or the prettiest, but they are incredibly powerful. Along with many other natural ingredients, used for their therapeutic effects, they play a key role in our collection. 

 

And whether they’re grown by us, or sourced from further afield, all Modern Botany ingredients undergo a rigorous testing and selection process. We rule out any endangered species, the socio-economic impact a plant has on its local environment, and check to see whether it requires more research before use. Our customer may not see it, but there’s a huge amount of work that’s done, before we even set foot in the laboratory.
