Our impact

Impact on the Environment

  • 3% of our gross sales are donated to environmental conservation in Zanzibar.
  • Our Ingredients support biodiversity, are often indigenous and wild-grown, removing fertilizers, pesticides and irrigation.
  • Seaweed is key to decarbonising the economy and fighting climate change.
  • Our ingredients are locally sourced and have an exceptionally low carbon-footprint
  • We avoid toxic chemicals and crops that are bad for the environment, such as palm oil and monoculture. 

Impact on our People

  • Mwani Zanzibar is operated and ran by the very people it aims to impact- our Mwani mamas.
  • We go beyond Fairtrade. Our farmers have become artisans.
  • Our ingredients are sourced from a majority female suppliers.
  • Because our ingredients are indigenous and wild-grown, we work with local communities.

Impact of our Packaging

  • Our glass bottles are made of 100% post-consumer and recycled glass bottles – the first beauty company in the world to do so.
  • Our outer packaging is made of 80% post-consumer and recycled outer packaging.
  • Our logo is debossed in the glass, eliminating the need for silk screen printing or plastic labelling.
  • Our bottles are coloured with a non-toxic chalk pigment to avoid penetration of UVA and UVB rays.
  • We worked extensively with our glass supplier to thin our glass bottles, reducing carbon footprint.
