* ARE SANA JARDIN FRAGRANCES NATURAL
All our fragrances include 15-20% natural plant essential oils, are 100% free of phthalates, artificial colorants, parabens and formaldehydes. We do not test on animals.
Each of our fragrances feature one or more organic floral ingredient grown by our partners Les Aromes du Maroc, and hand-picked by the female harvesters involved in our Beyond Sustainability™ Movement.
Alongside high quality natural ingredients, Sana Jardin formulations do include some consciously selected synthetic ingredients. Although we strive to use a high percentage of natural ingredients and essential oils wherever possible; we believe the selective use of quality synthetics is necessary to enable sustainable sourcing, and to create multi-dimensional formulations with staying power that denote luxury perfume.
For some endangered plant species, synthetics are the environmental choice over natural ingredients, to ensure sustainable sourcing and prevention of over-farming of crops. The use of synthetics also prevents the opportunistic sourcing of natural ingredients from conflict-torn regions.
Synthesising ingredients enables perfumers to capture unique, exclusive scents. Also, to ensure quality; where and how ingredients are made. They deliver a precision and consistency to formulations, not possible with natural ingredients. Many perfumers describe high quality synthetics as the perfect partner to the effusive beauty of natural ingredients.
At Sana Jardin, we believe our fragrances marry natural and man-made notes to mesmerising effect. Delivering the exquisite, lush beauty of nature’s most exotic scents with sparkling clarity and presence.
WHAT IS THE BEYOND SUSTAINABILITY™ MOVEMENT?
Beyond Sustainability™ is a movement to power tangible and measurable social change for low-income women, through commerce, not charity. To provide financial opportunity through business, and create female entrepreneurs that are agents of change in their community. With new, creative ideas to build on traditional sustainability and fair-trade practice and create enhanced social impact.
It all started with the Orange Blossom Project…
Since 2015, we have worked hand in hand with the indigenous Amazing women in the historic, flower-growing region in north west Morocco. To economically empower the female flower harvesters who hand-pick the flowers for Sana Jardin perfume.
Traditionally, the orange blossom, jasmine, and rose harvest provided only temporary employment, with no alternatives. In addition, the harvest yields around 900 tons of orange blossom waste by-product annually that has previously gone to landfills.
To address these issues, Sana Jardin joined with Nest, a non-profit organisation bringing transparency, business development, and advocacy to the global artisan community. Partnering in Morocco with leading international floral supplier, Les Aromes du Maroc, who supply floral ingredients to Sana Jardin. Together, piloting three micro-enterprises with female farmers in the villages of Tiddas and Maaziz.
We provided closed loop systems that enable the women to upcycle the waste by-product from the floral harvest and essential oil distillation, the first stage of perfume production. To create their own line of products, including orange blossom water and scented candles.
‘Concrete’ is a scented wax-like by-product that is upcycled into orange blossom, rose and jasmine scented candles. The women hand-mix the candles, set with a wick, package, label and decorate each candle with an individual design. They sell these candles at regional craft fairs.
Orange blossom water is the fragrant water by-product of essential oil distillation. It has been used for centuries in the region for cooking, beauty rituals and religious customs. This is bottled and labelled by the women for sale under their own brand nationally.
To make this closed-loop system a zero-waste enterprise, the harvest waste including leaves and stems not required for distillation, will be repurposed into organic compost. This will be sold back to the Les Aromes du Maroc to enhance future flower harvests.
Our work did not stop there. Participating female farmers received training in key business and leadership skills, including product pricing, brand development and market analysis, to ensure they launched a competitive range of products.
The women are the sole shareholders of the cooperative and retain 100% of the proceeds from the products they sell locally and nationally, under their own brand called Annamaa.
After just 6 months of operations, the founding cooperative members have seen a 13% increase to their income, with a projected 250% increase by end of 2017. Over time, with a ripple of benefits to the women’s families and communities.
‘90% of women’s income is reinvested into their families, compared to 35% for men.’ The Clinton Global Initiative
The Beyond Sustainability™ Movement is a first in the fragrance world. Our hope is it will be replicated across multiple businesses and industries so that low income workers can share in the supply chain value, and financially benefit from commercial production practices.
We will continually strive to find innovative, commercial approaches to economically empower disadvantaged women. To find creative ways to enable people in the supply chain to share in the value through enterprise, reduce waste and conduct business with integrity and transparency across all touchpoints.
We are proud to support three of the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2030: Empowering women (5) promoting sustainable economic growth (8) and ensuring sustainable production practices (12).
