We don’t believe you can be beautiful if you leave a dirty footprint behind you. As passionate believers in Scandinavian values, friluftsliv is in our blood: we prize our wild places and rejoice in untrammelled hiking paths, towering fjords, clear blue seas and plastic-free beaches. So how could we knowingly create products that cause harm to the things we love the most?
As a leader in B Beauty, the B Corp Beauty Coalition, we meet the highest standards of social and environmental impact and are committed to working together to deliver beauty for good.
At Skandinavisk, our sustainability mission focuses on people and planet. Since the refugee crisis, our small company has given a chance to one new refugee per year. Two of them are now regular employees. That’s two out of twenty staff in Denmark.
Employing refugees has nothing to do with our business model; it simply has to do with our responsibility as a global citizen, and as a Danish company that tries to live up to the Scandinavian ideals of leaving no one behind.
We are legally required to consider the impact of all our decisions on our people, our customers, our suppliers, our community and our planet. It is the highest level of independent company certification in the world, and a global movement of people using business as a force for good. Skandinavisk has been certified as a B Corp since 2019 and is one of the founding members of the B Corp Beauty Coalition.
