We create healthier chemistry between people, the things they love, and the planet. We also create this bi-weekly newsletter — curated with interesting and inspiring stories relevant to anyone interested in making our industries and our economies more bioharmonious.
Evolved By Nature was proud to be a part of Fashinnovation’s 3rd Worldwide Talks at New York Fashion Week this year! Our Co-Founder and CEO, Dr. Greg Altman, engaged in an illuminating discussion on the importance of sustainable materials and chemistries within the fashion industry. The session's recording is available for viewing here: “Fashion Is Textiles and Chemicals via Technologies Shaping Sustainability Efforts.”
Right on our bodies' surface resides trillions of microorganisms- bacteria, fungi, viruses, - all of them calling our skin home. The microbiome, a biodiverse colony of little beings, keeps the skin healthy and glowing. In the age where pollutants, contagions, and more, are increasing in scale and variation, our skin needs protection. However, the urge to protect against these threats must be paired with ensuring our skin’s microbiome is in balance. Toxicants often found in synthetic skincare do more damage to the microbiome than good- typically stripping the natural systems that maintain skin health. So, where’s the happy medium? It’s naturally-derived, minimal ingredient skincare that won't harm the ecosystems living on our skin and planet.
A "new plastic wave" is coming to our shores. Microplastics are virtually everywhere. And that's not the only problem- a variety of toxicants from our global supply chain leach into the environment. But we've known about these types of pollutants for quite some time, how is this news different from the past? Well, researchers are providing more evidence about how environmental externalities and waste impact our health. Today, we find ourselves with an ever-present health risk from toxicants commonly found in our everyday products. Now more than ever, the connection is being made that maintaining our planet's health, from mitigating chemical leaching to protecting biodiversity, means maintaining our own health.
We're excited to launch our newest product, hand soap, to our existing hand hygiene collection. Made with Activated Silk™ 10S, our patented silk cleansing system, this hand soap cleans and moisturizes hands without harming the skin barrier, even with frequent use. With minimal, naturally derived ingredients—no SLS, no fossil fuel derivatives, no synthetic fragrances and no unnecessary chemicals—it’s bioharmonious with skin and the environment when washed away. Available in an elegantly unscented formula. This Is Hand Soap is now available for sale.
