These ingredients not only conjure the natural world, but are highly beneficial for our skin, body, hair and senses.

The Ocean is Their Inspiration
At Captain Blankenship, they want to help protect our oceans. Packaging waste is a big problem in the beauty industry. They believe in a circular economy in which we consider all stages in the life of a product. What happens to products after consumer use is an important part of the overall environmental impact of that product. Ideally, they aim for the reuse or recycling of all materials from all steps of production.
Producing beauty products that are good for our bodies should not compromise the health of the environment. They do this by considering the impact of their products over their full lifecycle. By doing this, they can feel good about making choices that do not directly contribute to the problem. Although they use glass for most of their product line, which is easily recycled, they realized that the use of glass in the shower or bath is not always practical. They needed to find an alternative to glass for their Sea Mineral Liquid Soaps which could potentially be dropped on a hard surface. After a lot of research, they decided on packaging made from 100% recycled ocean-bound plastic from a company called Envision. Envision believes that preventing plastics from entering the oceans in the first place is essential to protecting the planet. Part of Envision’s mission is to educate consumers on the importance of managing plastic packaging properly through collection and recycling.
