Farm Fresh: Sustainable Fragrances with Mandarin Oil in CLEAN RESERVE Acqua Neroli

Welcome to our sustainable fragrance series Farm Fresh, where we explore the eco-conscious ingredients used in our CLEAN RESERVE and CLEAN RESERVE Avant Garden fragrances and share how we give back to our farmers. In addition to supporting the farmers and their communities, we’re committed to crafting products with the safest ingredients, avoiding anything that may be potentially linked to health or environmental issues (see our No-To list). 

First, it’s important to truly understand what “sustainable” means.

Here’s how we define it: 

  1. Responsibly sourced and doesn’t deplete the planet’s natural resources.

  2. Gives back to the farmers and their communities.

  3. Maintains an eco-conscious life cycle, from green manufacturing to recyclable packaging

Meet Mandarin Oil

With mood-boosting powers, Mandarin Oil is the undeniable star of our bright and breezy CLEAN RESERVE Acqua Neroli. We partner with a fragrance house that sustainably sources this ingredient from local farmers in Brazil. These growers harvest the mandarin fruit with great care and use transparent processes to extract only the highest quality oil. We couldn’t be happier to obtain the premium oil they produce, and are also delighted that our purchase can help these farmers provide their communities with economic support.
