Wine Country Organics™, Manufacturer of Natural Makeup:
Our Commitment to Fair Trade, Sustainability and Environmental Impact
As a manufacturer of natural makeup, we continually seek to increase the use of fair trade organic products, ingredients from sustainable farms and agriculture, as well as the use of 100% natural raw materials in all of our US-made organic cosmetic products. We look at our formulation’s environmental impact, and take the following into consideration when making our products:
- The raw materials for ingredients used in our products. We do not use plant species we determine are endangered or threatened
- The impact on the local communities and their ecosystems which provide the raw materials
- The use of chemicals when processing the raw materials into the ingredients for our products
- The impact of the finished products on the people and the environment
We are not only a manufacturer of natural makeup, but are committed to being conscious of our effect on our community and the world. Wine Country Organics™ ensures our products will not only benefit our customers through exceptional performance, but will positively impact the people and communities from which the ingredients are sourced.
Roots of Peace – Turning Mines into Vines
Wine Country Organics™ is committed to eradicating landmines worldwide through our support of the Roots of Peace, a humanitarian organization dedicated to eradicating landmines worldwide and rehabilitating the land to make it productive once more.
Founder Heidi Kühn became gravely aware of the landmine crisis upon the tragic death of Princess Diana in 1997. Motivated by her own appreciation for the gift of life and the Princess’s compassion and commitment to global de-mining, Kühn began Roots of Peace in honor of Diana’s memory and to ensure that her work would continue.
The roots of their organization are in the heart of California’s agricultural grape growing region. They are committed to the vintner’s legacy of respect for the earth and its power to give and sustain life. With the generous support of the entire California wine industry, along with many other public and private organizations, Roots of Peace is beginning to make progress toward realizing their goal. Roots of Peace, turning “Mines into Vines.” To learn more about them, check out their website at www.rootsofpeace.org.
We also support The International Committee of The Red Cross (www.ICRC.org) in their various prosthetic programs for providing prosthetic limbs to victims of landmines.
