Ethics

Sustainability is a journey and we are continuously working towards the most ethical, beautiful possible practices. 

Our products are ocean friendly and come in recycled amber glass bottles. We use minimal, sustainably sourced outer packaging and are continuously working towards reducing our carbon footprint. The LA-EVA range is nowadays made on a farm in Staffordshire, allowing for safety and scaleability. Our manufacturers are an extended part of the LA-EVA team, and together we ensure that the care and attention to detail nurtured at our studio is upheld in the production process. 

We are committed to the cause of refilling and reusing and are one of the first UK-based brands to offer a refill service.  Find out more about our refill offering.

Our skincare range is certified organic and vegan and all our products are accredited by the Leaping Bunny programme. Certifications are independent and rigorous processes, and involve a review of the entire manufacturing process including sourcing of ingredients, formulation procedures and premises.
