Bolt Beauty complies with the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Initiative for the sustainable and ethical sourcing of raw materials. The brand purchases certified materials whenever available (for example, RSPO certified palm oil) and performs audits in accordance with the International Nomenclature Cosmetic Ingredient (INCI) supplier list.
Bolt Beauty is known for its commitment to creating fully biodegradable products. The brand is also working to manage its carbon footprint and optimise its practices for environmental efficiency. One key initiative involves packaging; Bolt uses PETG jars which have a lower carbon footprint than a glass alternative. They are designed to be re-used and re-filled from fully compostable bags. In addition, the label supports carbon offsetting programmes with a focus on the economic development of communities who would otherwise rely on polluting activities for income.
We are still exploring how we can work with Bolt Beauty to evaluate and manage their water footprint.
All ingredients are sourced in accordance with the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Initiative, which provides a framework for sourcing cosmetic ingredients in an ethical and responsible way.
Bolt Beauty manufactures all its products in FDA-approved facilities in Italy, ensuring the rights of workers along the supply chain are protected.
Waste and Chemicals
Products are safely manufactured without the use of harmful ingredients – individually assessed using the latest scientific research – and techniques in a facility that is proactively trying to reduce waste. Packaging waste is also kept to a minimum.
All Bolt Beauty products are approved by Leaping Bunny, which requires a full supply chain audit to prevent the testing or commission of tests on animals throughout the entire supply chain. Bolt Beauty’s supplier monitoring system is also independently audited, ensuring enhanced transparency.
Biodiversity and Forestry
The brand is committed to the protection of endangered species and forest, in line with its application for B-corp status.
Bolt Beauty promotes responsible consumption by creating all products to serve multiple purposes and offering containers that are designed for re-use or are biodegradable/compostable.
