PhytoVero develops products that fully comply with our ideas of sustainability in social and ecological terms, from raw materials, ingredients, effects and formulation, packaging, shipping to disposal. In doing so, we work consistently according to our principles.

An essential 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.

PhytoVero – these are our principles

BIO

We use 100% of all plant-based raw materials from certified organic, sustainable cultivation.

Preservation

We do not use chemical preservatives and use either our patented silver technology or organic alcohol from controlled organic cultivation (Bud) to stabilize the products. PhytoVero products also do not contain so-called “natural cosmetic preservatives” such as benzyl benzoate, benzyl alcohol, sodium benzoate or potassium sorbate.

Sustainability and FairTrade

PhytoVero products are in harmony with the environment in all areas. For us, sustainability begins with the cultivation of raw materials and continues with “Fairtrade” production, packaging and recycling.

Transparent communication

PhytoVero stands for transparency in all matters, including in our dealings with our customers.

Solution-oriented

We are convinced that many people think like us and want to do without harmful substances such as microplastics, aluminum salts, parabens, etc.! Allergy sufferers can also breathe a sigh of relief thanks to our products.

Natural cosmetics labels

We follow the NaTrue organic cosmetics guidelines and the basic requirements of Bioinspecta. We develop and produce NaTrue-certified organic and natural cosmetics for our private label customers.

Free from ...

We use no mineral oils, no paraffins, no microplastics, no silicone oils, no aluminum salts, no synthetic dyes and fragrances, no parabens and do not use many other substances of concern. You can find more information under Cosmetic facts.

Transparency and traceability

We trace all raw materials back to their source. If traceability is not possible, the raw materials are either produced by PhytoVero itself or replaced by alternatives. Wherever possible and sensible, local herbs, oils and distillates from Switzerland are used.

Cruelty free

We do not test on animals and boycott all companies that do or used to do such absurd things. did.

Passion

What we have developed and used for our own use for years, we present to like-minded people.
We do this out of deep conviction because people should not consume bad, overpriced and unhealthy products. This is because they harm the environment and ultimately themselves a second time.

Swiss made

Our products are manufactured 100% in Switzerland at PhytoVero in accordance with the international standard ISO22716.

Real natural cosmetics

Do without problematic substances

As we do not want any problematic substances in our cosmetics, we do not use them in the formulation. The raw materials are the key to the safe, gentle care of our skin and the responsible treatment of the environment. This is because the process of raw material extraction determines the quality of the end product.
We have developed the PhytoVero products from our own needs and therefore consistently avoid all problematic substances in our cosmetics.

Our customers know the ingredients of our products and can check them using the CodeCheck app.
This means that every consumer can scan our products with a “smartphone + app” and immediately recognize whether they contain questionable ingredients. The CodeChek app provides the respective rating of the product as well as an explanation of the function of the ingredients.

Primary and secondary packaging

The packaging

The hygienic and sustainable packaging of our natural products is a challenge. After considering the many options (glass jar, wooden box and more), we decided on the following:

 

  • All materials should be recyclable and the hygiene and light sensitivity 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 best eco-balance.
  • We reuse flawless outer packaging.
  • We only print our logo on the containers to avoid waste due to misprints.

ONLY REUSABLE GLASS MAKES ECOLOGICAL SENSE

Glass container

In our opinion, glass containers are the most appealing and sensual containers. The eco-balance of disposable glass is now almost as good as that of rPET (recycled PET) containers.
We are convinced that our combination of glass (250ml) and rPET as a refill variant is a good combination.

 

High recycling rate for aluminum

CREAMS AND OINTMENTS IN THE ALUMINUM TUBE

Based on 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 actually recycled (>85% return rate in Switzerland).

PHYTOVERO SOAPS AND LOTIONS IN

PACKAGING MADE FROM RECYCLED PET

PP/PE plastic is not an option for the packaging of our products as it is a petroleum product that is not recycled, is extremely poorly degradable and often ends up in the sea instead of in the trash.
Therefore, in cases where we cannot use 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 FOR LIP BALM

Our LipBalm packaging is made of 100% food-safe paper and is 100% recyclable.

Zero Waste

REFILLING IN UNPACKAGED STORES AND DRUGSTORES

The “Zero Waste” concept fits perfectly with our products. We are convinced of the philosophy of the unpacked stores and are therefore a member of the association Unverpackt Schweiz since 2022.

You can stock up on our sustainable products in various unpackaged stores and drugstores. Shopping in the unpackaged store is a pleasant experience, as the well-stocked range of the finest regional organic products makes it easy to choose and allows for relaxed shopping. Our products can be filled into containers you bring with you, or you can buy and fill beautiful glass containers.

Reuse – Reduce – Refill

REUSABLE CLOSURE OPTIONS

Our 250ml products such as soap, shampoo and body lotion are delivered to your home with an aluminum cap. For convenient dosing of PhytoVero products, we recommend ordering the soap pump, the lotion pump or the disc top cap. The closures can be easily cleaned and reused.

Avoid waste

LABELS INSTEAD OF MISPRINTS

Admittedly, we could replace our labels on the containers with a fancy print. However, we deliberately opted for the labels because they give 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 incorrectly.

FLAWLESS SHIPMENT OF THE ALUMINUM TUBES

CARDBOARD CONTAINERS MADE FROM RECYCLED CARDBOARD

We ship our aluminum tube products in cardboard tubes made from recycled cardboard. This ensures that our creams reach you in perfect condition. We take back the cardboard packaging, sort it and use it for further deliveries. The sales outlets collect the cardboard containers and return them to us for reuse.
