Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you test on animals?

    NO! Animal testing for cosmetics and cosmetic ingredients is prohibited in the EU. Naturally, Nature Box also follows this ban. We do not test products on animals at any point during the production process. We are happy to say that our brand is entirely vegan and cruelty-free.

  • Are your products vegan?

    YES! All Nature Box products are 100% Vegan. We do not use of animal products, by-products or derivatives into our formulations. And of course that includes NO animal testing. We are pretty sure your pets will want to shower with Nature Box products once they smell them. But you should not test them on your pets either!

  • Do your products contain microplastic?

    Nature Box does not use microplastics such as microbeds and opacifiers in its products, including Acrylate, Polyquaternium, Methicone, Siloxane, Polyamide, Polyimide and Ethylen-vinylacetat. Ugh, even their names are not environmentally friendly! Furthermore, we strive for a circular economy to prevent the improper disposal of our product packaging from contributing to the formation of microplastics.

  • Do your products contain palm oil?

    Palm kernel oil is an essential raw material for the production of surfactants (i.e. the rinse-off products’ detergent substances). Nature Box believes that palm oil plays an important role in our products, but the improper way of harvesting palm oil is. Therefore, Nature Box joined forces with the development organization Solidaridad to support local farmers on sustainable palm oil harvesting in various regions of the world.

  • Do your products contain parabens?

    No! Our Nature Box products are free from parabens, silicones, artificial colorants, and sulfates*! We managed to make our products look and feel amazing without these chemicals! *Depending on the product

  • What is the link of Nature Box to sustainability?

    All components of Nature Box are subject to Henkel’s (our Parent Company) strong responsible sourcing standards. On responsible sourcing, two specific projects are in place (we are using mass balanced palm oil, sponsoring the NGO Solidaridad. We are integrating as well mass balanced Guar, sponsoring NGO Technoserve cf. below). Nature Box bottles are made of 98% recycled plastic, so-called Social Plastic, which is collected at beach and land.

  • Is the packaging 100% recyclable after use?

    Recycling is subject to local law and guidelines so that no internationally valid answer is available as to the % degree of recyclability. From material theory, however, the packaging is 100% recyclable.

  • What exactly is the “Be smarter, save water” initiative?

    Henkel, the parent company of Nature box is engaged in reducing its carbon footprint in all steps of the product lifecycle, and the most weighed factor in the carbon footprint of rinse-off products is the use of water at consumer homes. The initiative aims at motivating the consumer to save water while using our products. More information can be found under: https://www.smarterinitiative.com/en/home.html

  • What exactly are “cold-pressed oils”, how are they produced and what are their benefits in beauty?

    Cold-pressed oils are considered premium oils due to careful extraction at minimal heat. They are not refined, not processed further and hence preserve their valuable vitamins and anti-oxidants. Cold-pressed oils are known to be smoothening and hydrating thanks to healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and Vitamin E and for helping hair & skin to maintain its health and softness.
