Ethics

We celebrate the simple, precious offerings of our natural world.

The LA-EVA capsule range is ocean friendly and certified to the highest natural and organic standards. Our products come presented in amber glass apothecary bottles and all our packaging in made or sourced using the most sustainable materials we can lay our hands on.

Whilst all our ideas and creations are born within our artisan studio, nowadays our products are made on a farm in the UK, 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 the studio is upheld in the production process. 

 

 

Against a backdrop of increasing awareness about the disastrous environmental impact of single use plastics and other waste, 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.
