Vegan, Zero-Waste, and Unisex

  • Our products are all vegan. We do not test on animals nor use ingredients derived from animals. This means we say NO to beeswax, milk products, tallow, silk proteins, and other such animal-derived materials.
  • We also focus on the principles of zero-waste by maximizing reusability and fostering a circular economy to reduce trash sent to landfills, incinerators, or oceans. We actively promote the idea of reusability and circular economy through our upcycled and reused packaging materials, along with our Jar Return Scheme.
  • Also, all our personal care products are gender-neutral/unisex. We do not have restrictive products labelled "for him" or "for her".

More Local and Affordable

  • Team Scentora works hard to ensure that the ingredients used are sourced locally. We make it a point to support small businesses whose practices align with our values one way or the other. 
  • We also aim to make sure that our products are priced reasonably. We decide on a product price that is both economical for customers, and provides reasonable returns for Scentora to continue its functioning.

Nurturing Sustainability from Process to Packaging

  • Team Scentora puts in a whole lot of research to find out if the ingredients we want to use meet environmental and sustainability standards. We give equal attention to our production operations, ensuring that all of our supplies and production processes respect our values.
  • We also care about obtaining raw materials package-free (mostly plastic-packaging free). It is not always easy to convince our vendors to ship plastic-free and sometimes we do not succeed, but we do our best to insist on such delivery practices every time.

Transparency - Whatever We Know, You Know

  • Transparency is an important value for Scentora, and for this reason, we share all the behind-the-scenes on our website and social media channels, including all the ingredients we put in our products. No nasties!
