Sure, we have a few nifty little logos on the back of our nail polishes, but what do they all mean? Quite a lot, actually. Rest assured, these accreditations were not easy to come by, and we work our butts off to make sure we stay up to scratch for every one of them.

We worked damn hard to get these accreditations, and we continue to work hard to maintain them!

B Corp

We were the first beauty brand in the world to be B Corp certified. If that’s not a big deal then we don’t know what is! Certification is a rigorous assessment that explored our governance, transparency, environmental and social impact. Together, B Corps redefine success in business by competing not to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.
