Our view of the entire value chain
PhytoVero develops products that fully comply with our ideas of sustainability in both the social and ecological sense, from the raw material, ingredient, effect and formulation, packaging, shipping to disposal. In doing so, we work consistently according to our principles.
A crucial part of our work is the search for fairly and sustainably produced raw materials of the best organic quality. Because our skin and our environment need careful care.
What comes on our body could be eaten without hesitation!

PhytoVero – these are our principles
Sustainability and Fairtrade
Natural cosmetics labels
Transparency and traceability
We do this out of deep conviction because people should not consume bad, overpriced and unhealthy products. Because this harms the environment and thereby ultimately a second time again themselves.
Real natural cosmetics
Do without problematic substances
Our customers know the ingredients of our products and can check them via the CodeCheck app.
In this way, every consumer can scan our products using a “smartphone + app” and immediately recognize whether they contain any ingredients of concern. The CodeChek app provides the respective assessment of the product as well as an explanation of the function of the ingredients.
How do I inform myself?
With the CodeCheck app you can scan the barcode of your products. You will be immediately informed about the ingredients.
You can find the barcode to scan our natural cosmetics directly on our products or in the product descriptions on the website under tab “Information”.
Store better - live better
Primary and secondary containers
- All materials should be recyclable and the hygiene and photosensitivity of the products should not be neglected.
- The containers are made from raw materials that have already been recycled.
- We choose the type of packaging with the better eco-balance.
- We reuse flawless secondary packaging.
- We only print our logo on the containers to eliminate waste due to misprints.
Only reusable glass makes ecological sense
Large return of aluminum containers
Creams and ointments in the aluminum tube
For these considerations, we have chosen the aluminum tube as the hygienic primary packaging for all creams and ointments. Although the production of the aluminum tube consumes a lot of energy, this comes from our Austrian supplier from renewable sources (water), and is therefore almost CO2 neutral.
- Aluminum tubes are 100% recyclable and are indeed recycled (>85% return rate in Switzerland).
PhytoVero soaps and lotions in
Packaging made from recycled PET
PP/PE plastic is not an option for packaging our products because it is a petroleum product, is not recycled, is extremely poorly degradable, and often ends up in the ocean rather than in the trash.
Therefore, where we cannot use the Alutube, we use either glass (at the request of our private and white label customers) or rPET (100% recycled) to achieve our goal of 100% recyclability.
Simple and convincing
Paper packaging lipbalm
Our LipBalm packaging is made of 100% “foodgrade” paper and is 100% recyclable.
Refill in unpacked stores and drugstores
The “zero waste” concept complements our products perfectly. We are convinced of the philosophy of the unpacked stores and are therefore a member of the association Unverpackt Schweiz since 2022.
You can replenish our sustainable products in various unpackaged stores and drugstores. Shopping in the unpackaged store is a pleasant experience, because the well-stocked assortment of the finest local organic products makes the choice easy and relaxed shopping possible. Our products can be filled in containers that you bring with you, or beautiful glass containers can be purchased and filled.
Reuse – Reduce – Refill
Reusable closure options
Our 250ml products like soap, shampoo and body lotion are delivered to your home with an aluminum cap. For convenient dosing of PhytoVero products, we recommend that you order the soap pump, lotion pump or the Disc Top cap. The closure options can be easily cleaned and reused.
Labels instead of misprint
Admittedly, we could replace our labels on the containers with a fancy imprint. However, we made a conscious decision to use the labels, because this gives us the flexibility to add new ingredients or new information to the labels and we don’t have to throw away a single aluminum tube or rPET container because something was printed on it incorrectly.
Flawless shipping of the aluminum tubes
Cardboard container from recycled cardboard
We ship our aluminum tube products in cardboard tubes made from recycled cardboard. In this way, our creams reach you in perfect condition. We take back the cardboard containers, sort them and use them for further deliveries. The sales outlets collect the cardboard containers and so they come back to us for reuse.
