Skincare Supplements with Recyclable Bundling

I am really glad to be able to share the following letter with you. I thought you would like to read it because it shows the deep integrity that lies behind the skin care supplements that we make available to you. It is written by David Alpert, the creator and visionary behind Advanced Nutrition Program, the suppliers of skin care supplements. David speaks eloquently and emotionally about the new packaging and the reasons why he chose to make it plastic-free. We know that the same care taken with the packaging is demonstrated time and time again in the sourcing of ingredients and the formulations of the supplements that we are so proud to offer you. Take a moment to continue reading; I believe you will think it was worth it.

I grew up in South Africa and from an early age, I spent every moment I could in the water, whether competing or following different sports and aquatic activities.

I have always had a deep respect and concern for the environment, so I am saddened by the disastrous effect of plastic on our increasingly fragile ecosystem. I am a diving enthusiast with a passion for marine life, which means that I am particularly appalled by the impact it is having on our oceans. Did you know that about 90% of seabirds have plastic in their stomachs and that more than 8 million tons of plastic are dumped into our oceans every year?*

According to the SurfRider Foundation, which defends environmental causes, this level of pollution finishs more than 100 million marine animals every year. A severely emaciated whale was recently found in Norway that had 30 plastic bags in its stomach. He had to be put down because the bags had blocked his intestines and he was in a lot of pain.

This must stop. Over the past two years, I have made it my personal mission to find a solution that reflects our respect for the environment and offers unprecedented appeal to consumers. Finally, my quest is over. Last month, we launched the Advanced Nutrition Programme™ with a new innovative packaging, which not only looks great in the salon, but is 100% recyclable and completely plastic-free. We use completely biodegradable vegetable-based inks and the cardboard we use is 100% recyclable. Our new futuristic on-site filling plant gives us full control over the packaging process and provides sterile, air-conditioned conditions to guarantee the highest levels of supplement integrity. Our ingredients are also carefully selected with the greatest concern for the ecosystem, for example our fish oils come from Epax which are certified by Friends Of The Sea. I am determined that Advanced Nutrition Programme™ will not contribute to the devastating impact of plastic on our environment.
