Committed to the Environment

We are committed to the principle of ‘responsible luxury’, helping hoteliers to reduce their environmental footprint while maintaining the highest possible standards for their guests.

For Gilchrist & Soames, ‘responsible luxury’ means developing environmentally-friendly formulations, using recyclable packaging, employing ‘green’ manufacturing processes and partnering with companies that share our commitment to the environment.

Our products are never tested on animals.

No parabens, no phthalates. Our Signature Formulations contain no parabens, phthalates, petrol-derived ingredients, mineral oil, urea, DEA, TEA, DMDM hydantoin or propylene glycol. They do feature food-grade, naturally derived USP glycerine, and natural conditioning agents from honey and the Brassica plant instead of petrochemicals.

No sulfates. In our Naturally Kind™ Formulations, all of the virtues of our Signature Formulations are combined with another layer of skin- and Earth-friendliness. They are also free of all sulfates (SLS/SLES).

Recyclable packaging. Our bottles are made of highly-recyclable, low resin weight PET/HDPE. We use recycled box board for master shipping cartons and some necessity collections. Where possible, we offer alternative packaging options. We also supply bulk dispensing systems to cut down on unnecessary packaging.


At Gilchrist & Soames we recognise that each action our business takes has an impact on the environment and the communities in which we operate. Our Sustainability Policy provides further information.
