- Our Philosophy
Pink Horizons Botanical Skin Care is inspired by a vision that was founded on an integrated, holistic approach to overall health and well-being. We are a holistic, botanical skin care company dedicated to bringing powerful, pure, and multi-beneficial ingredients from the United States as well as countries that support fair trade initiatives such as Fair for Life. Our customers and business practices are paramount to us. There are only a handful of companies in the world that demonstrate the importance of making a living while keeping in mind the ramifications of their business practices on their clients, local and global communities, and the earth’s precious resources. Every action we take or decision we make has a direct effect on our customers, our environment, and the local/global communities around the world. We are proud to say that we have built a company that maintains that focus.
The company's name comes from the phrase, "May your life be filled with many pink horizons", where the color pink represents love and bounty, as cherry blossoms are only pink when they blossom in the springtime. One pink horizon is simply not enough. Your life should be filled with many. Through our company, we have found ways to bring you just that - by engaging in the spirit of community, increasing awareness, and developing healthy products that promote holistic living.
As part of our philosophy, we are active in our local community, engaging in projects and teaming up with organizations that contribute to improving human health, the environment, and helping underprivileged groups. We are thankful that we have been given the opportunity to connect with others, creating a positive impact in the world. Our team proudly supports and contributes to Green America, Kiva, Change.org, Water.org, and Breast Cancer Action. We are inspired by their missions, their passion towards a greater good, and their rigorous commitment to engage the public in their efforts.
Our cornerstone organization is the Environmental Working Group who together with Breast Cancer Fund have sponsored a great initiative to bring about the awareness of toxic chemicals present in many popular skin care brands by developing the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. We are proud to be one of the few companies in full compliance with the Compact. We have been a member since 2007 and a Champion since 2011, relentlessly improving our standards and formulations to meet the guidelines presented by this very important mission to hold skin care companies accountable for what they manufacture and sell to the public.
We package our products in eco-friendly containers that do not add to the waste stream or are complicated to recycle. All of our products arrive in High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or glass, and nothing (absolutely nothing) is artificial or toxic; all products are paraben-free, phthalate-free, sulfate-free, dye-free, natural or organic, and fresh. Our batches are kept very small and never stocked on shelves to ensure the freshest products for your skin care regimen. Pink Horizons products are NEVER tested on animals. With increasing awareness of the environment and the indigenous people who live in remote parts of the world where much of earth’s resources come from, more companies are using ecologically sound methods of growing and sourcing ingredients as well as participating in international fair trade initiatives. We are proud to be one of these few.
Our formulations are based on an understanding of your skin’s dynamic as an organ. Needless to say, a healthy skin care regimen should be supported by a balanced diet along with significant exercise. These essentials are part of a holistic approach to skin care and will ultimately have an effect on your skin’s health and splendor. The nurturing, therapeutic, and healing properties of botanicals are the root of our skin care products. From the very beginning, Pink Horizons has based its approach to skin care on an in-depth understanding of how botanicals are able to restore and sustain healthy skin, as well as focus on how important it is to treat your skin as an organ that absorbs nutrients as well as toxins into the bloodstream.
With our professional background, scientific research is critical to our evaluation of the ingredients we select for product development. In our Research & Development Lab, we focus on ingredients that are 1) in their purest state; 2) proven to be effective; and 3) safest to our health and skin. As an end result, we provide you with natural and toxin-free skin care guaranteed to improve your skin’s health. In other words, you will receive only the best.
We stand proudly by our products, knowing that our suppliers and companies we do business with carry the same vision and ethical standards we do. Our suppliers support the principles of Fair Trade systems, which not only carry certified products, but are inspected and certified for their working conditions, labor practices, environmental and social programs, the origins of their products, and their overall transparency to the public.
