OUR PHILOSOPHY

Premium functional ingredients, ethically sourced and pH balanced for healthy skin.

LUXURIOUS and RESULTS DRIVEN FORMULATIONS

We NEVER use synthetic fragrances, colors, fillers, parabens, sulfates or pthalates. All products are laboratory tested for allergies and approved for all skin types.

All ingredients are wild or certified organic when possible and meet the highest standards of safety. All ingredients and formulations have a low EWG rating and we are a proud signer of proud signer of The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and approved in EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database.

What you put on your skin is as important as what goes into your body. Your skin is the largest organ in the human body and absorbs 60% of products used topically. If you want healthier and younger looking skin, then topically hydrate your skin with nutrients and actives containing molecular structures carefully formulated to be easily recognized by skin cells and successfully absorbed.  All products are formulated with a balanced pH within the range of 3.5-7.0.to protect the skin’s delicate “acid mantle” barrier composed of lipids, proteins and a protective microbiome that help protect against germs, pollution and irritants.

ECO-CONSCIOUS INGREDIENT SOURCING, MANUFACTURING and PACKAGING  

Your skin. Earth’s Skin.

All ingredients are sourced responsibly with priority on wild, organic, sustainable and biodegradable ingredients. We use community hydro to process mineral and botanical raw materials and power our small-batch manufacturing facility. All paper packaging is post-consumer and components are recyclable including PEG plastic, aluminum and glass.  For our wild botanicals, we source responsibly and locally.  We hand-harvest abundantly available mineral-rich glacial minerals on the Copper River Delta where nearly 100 million tons of buttery glacial mud deposits itself on the expansive delta each year. Alaska Glacial always pledges to use the most sustainable methods for harvesting and manufacturing our products without the use of heavy equipment or mechanical techniques. We use good old-fashioned 5 gallon buckets and spade shovels.  We often harvest less than 1% of our permitted resource. To paint a picture of the abundance, we harvest less than a drop in the bucket, so to speak!

Due to a comprehensive social and environmental company ethos, Alaska Glacial received BCorp status by the BLab in 2014 highlighting our commitment to clean beauty, green beauty and ethical beauty.
