Our sustainable practices
Choose Sage & Ylang for eco-friendly products made with minimal impact on the environment, because being environmentally-conscious is at the core of our brand’s commitment.
Our six commitments
With sustainability at the core, we commit to responsible stewardship through 6 sustainable practices embedded in our business since 2018.

We ethically source our ingredients with traceable supply chain:
We use certified organic, fair trade, ethically wild-crafted ingredients whenever possible.
We state clearly the percentages of organic, plant-derived, or wild-crafted ingredients
All products are made in our GMP lab in Singapore using only the best ingredients sourced from around the world, ensuring that our suppliers align with environmental and ethical standards. We prioritize green chemistry attributes in our ingredients, reducing our carbon footprint. Using cutting-edge plant-derived emulsifiers, we employ a cold process method in manufacturing, eliminating the need for heat and drastically reducing our carbon footprint. 2/3 of our skincare and haircare line are made without the use of heat.
Over 90% of our packaging is made from special Miron Violet Glass, which not only preserves the freshness of our products but is also recyclable. We encourage our customers to participate in our #SAYREUSEINITIATIVE by returning the bottles for recycling. We also offer bundle purchases in biodegradable and reusable jute/canvas bags, while delivery is packaged in recyclable postage boxes and cushioned with wood or recycled paper shavings to protect the bottles, reducing excessive waste.
With a commitment to transparency, we aim to empower our customers to make informed decisions when purchasing personal care products. Our goal is to cut through the greenwashing and provide our customers with the knowledge they need to make the best choices for themselves and the environment.
