Mindful of the desert’s precious resources, our unconventional makeup is deliberately sustainable. We craft Vapour with eternal respect for our most precious resources: water, land, human and spirit.
Respectfully Anhydrous (waterless)
We’re experts in waterless formulation activated by untamed botanicals. Water stress impacts 44% of the world population and for us, living in the high desert, it’s personal. That’s why ninety five percent of our products are respectfully Anhydrous (waterless). We only use water when it’s best for product performance –and never as a base or filler.
Solar Powered Taos Lab
We use 100% Daylight Solar at our headquarters, manufacturing, warehouse and research facilities in Taos, New Mexico. We’re proud of this meaningful step towards living in harmony with Nature.
Reuse + Recycle
One third of all landfill waste is personal care packaging. Treading lightly is our passion. Orders are mindfully packaged using eco-friendly and compostable materials. All paper, cardboard, glass and packing materials used at our headquarters, manufacturing, warehouse and research facilities in Taos, New Mexico, are reused or recycled.
We partner with Cloverly* to neutralize the carbon impact of shipping your order. Every time you shop it’s another small step towards creating positive environmental change. With a click at checkout you can see how your order contributes to specific offset projects and the amount of carbon offset for your order.
*Cloverly works with internationally recognized organizations who track and verify registered carbon offset projects.
We’ve traveled the globe for sustainable packaging and are excited about evolving our packaging as eco-friendly options continue to develop. We’re actively transitioning to PCR (post-consumer recycled) materials in our packaging. Today Lux Organic Lip Conditioner and Lux Conditioning Tints have transitioned to PCR and more products are transitioning soon! In the meantime, we’re taking responsibility for our packaging by offering to recycle it through Terracycle®.
We are animal lovers. We are Cruelty-Free. Vapour is a certified member of the Leaping Bunny Program; an internationally recognized Cruelty-Free standard. Leaping Bunny certification assures that our raw ingredients, products in development and final products never harm or are tested on animals.
