Clean and simple packaging.

Is plastic pollution the new global warming? It might be too soon to say. But with microplastics finding their way into our oceans, marine life and even (horrifyingly enough) rainwater, it’s time to rethink everything about the way we live. That’s why we’ve made sure the packaging on our ēcōMD products is as natural and sustainable as our ingredients.

our unique eco-box

Our glass (instead of plastic) bottles cost more to make and ship and are more vulnerable to breakage, but they won’t end up in your tuna roll.

Our environmentally certified cardboard boxes, though nominally more expensive than conventionally bleached cardboard, take a far lower toll on the environment. And all our printing inks are vegetable based.

Our clean start in products called for an equally clean start in their packaging. We think your health and our planet are worth it, and trust you will agree.

    Reef Safe

    Sunscreen ingredients such as oxybenzone and octinoxate damage coral reefs. A safer alternative, zinc oxide (mineral), is the medicinal ingredient in ēcōMD Clean Natural Daily Solar Defence SPF 30 sunscreen.

      A study has found that some chemical sunscreens can cause abrupt and complete bleaching of corals.
