In the past years, waste from industrial processes has highly increased. At Sepai, we do our best to use and upcycle plant-based by-products that would otherwise go to waste. 

For us, taking care of the environment and doing our best to improve the current state of the world is a big priority. When we choose our ingredients, we think about their sourcing and how we can get the most out of their properties without anything going to waste.


The benefits behind upcycling

There is a lot of potential on natural scraps that usually don’t make it as part of the formula. We create innovative cosmetic ingredients from nutrient-rich by-products, giving our product a boost and making great use of natural resources without compromising on quality or efficacy.

In other words, recycling these by-products not only helps the environment, but it also brings a lot of otherwise lost benefits for your skin. Upcycled ingredients like Macaline and hydrolates are an essential part of our formulas.

To upcycle is to reuse discarded material in ways that create a product of higher quality or value than before. We take what others see as trash and turn it into some of the best parts of our products. 

Why is upcycling important?

Going zero waste is more than a trend; it is a necessity. Waste management must prioritize reusing materials, followed by recycling them and putting disposal as the last resource.

By upcycling and choosing no waste ingredients, we contribute towards a world with less pollution and less loss. 

We want to redefine the production of cosmetic ingredients, making environmentally-friendly choices, and developing new ways to get the best out of the world’s precious resources. 

Together, we can make a difference. Join us in the path of clean and sustainable beauty! Change often happens thanks to a small group of committed citizens coming together.
