Health + Wellbeing
Gressa’s website states that none of its products contains nano-particles.
They prioritise the use of natural preservation systems such as Leuconostoc-Radish Root Ferment Filtrate. As many of their products are oil-based, they require fewer synthetic-preservatives than water-based formulations.
At present, Gressa doesn’t hold any specific certifications in this category.
All of Gressa’s ingredients are ethically sourced and are not tested on animals. They carry Leaping Bunny certification. They also do not sell in any country that requires animal testing.
Their website states that all their products are vegan, except for the Renewing Polish, which contains organic honey.
They also state that they ethically source their mica from carefully selected companies that are aware of exploitative child labour concerns.
Their base products are best suited for smoother, younger skin types as it will sit in the skin’s creases. This suggests that their products are not wholly age-inclusive.
Their current complexion line, which is a light-medium coverage, liquid serum foundations (11) has a sufficiently inclusive range for all skin tones. However, their packaging has no specific universal design principles for people with varying abilities.
Packaging, Practices + Policies
All of their bottles are made of miron glass which is 100% recyclable.
The top of the foundation bottle has glass pipette inserted into the plastic top with a rubber component. To ensure this is properly recycled, the top should be divided into both plastic and glass bins accordingly.
Gressa is in the process of creating a buyback program to encourage its customers to properly recycle with them.
