a more sustainable world
Sustainability is at the heart of our company
Everyone at TEMPLESPA is totally committed to our continuous environmental improvement plans. We love our planet, our plants, landscapes, our wildlife and our people and we fully recognise the need to keep all protected and well treated.
Here are just a few of the things we’re doing
We’re also working with all our suppliers to ensure that the packaging they send us is made from a sustainable source wherever possible so that we can recycle or reused.
90% of all our components are recyclable
69% of our products contain PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) or FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) sourced materials
100% of our tubes are recyclable
We’ve removed over 7.3 tonnes per year of non-recyclable plastics from our ecosystem by changing the jars of some of our best sellers, and removing spatulas from our entire range.
ALWAYS CRUELTY FREE
TEMPLESPA do not test on animals.
Our founding principles in 2000 were to develop a cruelty free skincare brand and they remain the same to this day. We believe strongly that the practice of testing skincare products and ingredients on animals is unacceptable.
We never test or have tested any of our ingredients or finished formulas on animals, nor do we hire others to do so on our behalf.
VEGAN & VEGETARIAN
We are wholeheartedly committed to the ethical and responsible sourcing of our raw materials.
All our skincare ingredients are 100% cruelty free, 100% is suitable for vegetarians, and 76% is suitable for vegans.
We have completely removed the use of plastic airbags in our pack off, replacing these with 100% recycled and recyclable paper rosettes, saving over 0.7 tonnes of plastic a year.
It’s not all about the external things either… At head office and at our warehouse, our electricity & gas suppliers at head office and the warehouse are heavily investing into renewable energy, working towards a greener future. Our office composting system feeds our beautiful Mediterranean office garden. Over in our warehouse, we reuse inbound packing and transit materials.
SUSTAINABLE PALM OIL
We’re official members of the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil). We will always ensure that any palm oil used in the production of TEMPLESPA skincare is from a wholly sustainable source.
The RSPO is a non-profit organisation which was established by stakeholders from the palm oil industry to minimise the negative impact of palm oil cultivation on the environment and communities in palm oil-producing regions.
How to recycle your TEMPLESPA products

Check out our cheat sheet for a glossary and rundown of what’s what and where they can be recycled.
