The intent of the BEAUTY Petal is to recognize the need for beauty to enrich our lives and to honor the impacts of the things we make. There are no limitations to Beauty other than our imaginations and what we as a society choose to value.
Understanding and being transparent about what’s in our materials is the first step to driving change. Humanscale is taking a proactive role in identifying all of the ingredients in their products. This entails working with suppliers at all levels to identify and evaluate the ingredients in their products, packaging, manufacturing processes, and key partners in the supply chain.
Formfunc fully supports the Humanscale mission to publish thorough and accurate list of material ingredients for every product. Like nutritional labels on food, Humanscale uses standard formats to publish the ingredients: Health Product Declarations (HPDs) and Declare labels. We are committed to informing and educating our customers about the contents of Humanscale products, so they can make the best decisions possible.
Once the ingredients are identified, Humanscale evaluates each one for its impact on people and the environment. They systematically replace chemicals of high concern with safer alternatives.
