Sustainability

Very fashionable “green issues”, which are becoming part and parcel of modern business. Manufaktura has been considering respect for the environment as natural part of its activities since the very beginning. What do our specific steps consist in?

We are 100% Czech Company

We are located in the centre of Prague and we develop and produce the vast majority of our cosmetics in our own plant.

We love our local ingredients

Our formulae include Czech beer, Moravian wine, Carlsbad thermal spring salt, herbs and fruit typical of Czech gardens and meadows. We collaborate with local farmers and use daisies harvested by hand in our cosmetics.

Our accessories are czech too

Our assortment includes also accessories for home spa, which are mostly of Czech origin: teas and candles from Southern Moravia, syrups from the Jizera Mountains, porcelain ware from Dubí, brushes from Pelhřimov, gift boxes from Přerov, and others.

Packages - czech and recyclable

In general, we thoroughly save packaging. We prefer packages from paper, plastic, glass and other easily recyclable materials. We collaborate mostly with Czech package suppliers.

Containers from recyclable plastic

We produce containers from top quality plastic – PET, which can be recycled repeatedly. White containers include 25 % of recyclate, transparent ones up to 50 %. Thanks to that we manage to save up to 10 tons of plastic every year.

Minimization, circulation and recycling

We maximize circulation of packaging material between our production plant and shops – we manage to use some packaging up to 5 times. We thoroughly recycle, use transport packaging from recyclate, reduce thickness of protective films.

Gentle formulae full of nature

Our formulae are based mostly on natural ingredients – our cosmetics contains up to 97 - 99.5 % of them. Such products are easily biodegradable and thanks to natural ingredients used in adequate amounts they are fully functional.

World class quality & local origin

We are happy we can provide our customers with products that can succeed in the international competition. Import of foreign products burdens our planet unnecessarily.

We love animals and VEGAN formulae

We are the first company in the Czech Republic to have obtained the Human Cosmetics Standard, an internationally recognized certificate about not testing on animals. Most our products are VEGAN. We use honey, beeswax and lanolin as animal products.

We support folk arts

Since our establishment in 1991 we have been collaborating with makers of traditional folk arts and wooden toys. By ensuring the regular disposal of their products we help preserve unique craft techniques, which would face extinction otherwise.

We save kilometres, energy and waste

We are working on reduction of energy performance in our production premises as well as brick-and-mortar shops. Thanks to our modern warehouse and own vehicle fleet we optimize delivery of goods. Waste sorting and recycling is an obvious matter for us.

Sustainable planning

Many-years experience with own production and selling within own business network allows us to plan sustainably, thus we sell everything we produce and prevent disposal of unsold stock.

We love upcycling

Our shops are furnished with restored furniture, laboratory glassware, scales, washboards, washing machines and other historical artifacts. We breathe life into beautiful old things, which can continue to serve and tell their stories.

ECO-friedly shopping

We do not use plastic bags: you will carry away your purchase in Czech bags made from recycled paper, which can be used repeatedly. We offer also cotton ECO bags sewn in the Czech Republic and package free sale of bath salt.

Sustainability - endless topic

We follow ecological trends and keep on educating ourselves in this field. We use new knowledge in development, production as well as sale and we hand it over to our customers, e.g. within a campaign of “Awareness raising to save our beautiful planet”.

We minimize printed material

We do not need any leaflets or catalogues, but our qualified staff or our websites will help you with everything. Electronization – we have finished to print invoices, payrolls and other documents. Currently, we offer the possibility not to print paper receipts. In our shops we print receipts on environmentally-friendly paper (without phenol (BPA). Phenol-free paper receipts are friendly to both the environment and the health of people.

We help improve surroundings

We support VIA foundation, which implements projects aimed at improvement of the environment and human relationships in the long term. The managing director of VIA says: “Thanks to Manufaktura the map of the Czech Republic has been filled with beautiful places to live.”

We are looking for further environmental challenges and steps ahead of us…
