Using eco-friendly products is important to me. I know MyChelle natural skincare products are good for my body—but are they also OK for the environment?
MyChelle began with a passion as pure and natural as the Rocky Mountains. Founded in Colorado over 12 years ago, MyChelle Dermaceuticals’ singular obsession has been to create the most effective, nontoxic skin care products in the country. Today, our products deliver powerful, quick and visible results without using nasty ingredients or toxic chemicals.
We are a company that proudly, yet humbly, pursues a path that we call the MyChelle Purpose. Whether we are pioneering renewable packaging (which we did), supporting young women on wilderness expeditions (which we do) or empowering women in their pursuit of their personal definition of true beauty (a deep passion of ours), our goal is to breathe inspired energy into the causes and organizations that work as hard – if not harder – than we do every day.
The environment is a top priority to us and we do our absolute best to make eco-friendly, mindful choices when it comes to Earth and our shared planet. Not all MyChelle packages are literally colored green, but our eco-friendly practices did garner us a 2010 Responsible Packaging Award. Our product boxes are made of post-consumer recycled paper and our product containers are made of recyclable glass and plastic, as well.
We source ingredients with integrity for Mother Nature. We use eco-friendly, green-house lab technology to craft 100% vegetarian, all-natural, yet effective formulas. MyChelle also looks at the impact of our products on the environment – all of our sunscreens are formulated to be reef safe and do not include any of the chemicals linked to coral bleaching. Our Sun Shield SPF 28 sunscreens and Replenishing Solar Defense SPF 30 block damaging UVA/UVB rays while not harming the ocean’s coral reefs and wildlife.

We journey the world over searching for the most potent natural ingredients Mother Nature has to offer. Whether it’s Edelweiss from mountaintops, Buddleja safely harvested from the rain forest or the Pumpkin found in our Incredible Pumpkin Peel, Creamy Pumpkin Cleanser and Pumpkin Renew Cream. In the end, our consumer is guaranteed that each product is packed with a unique and proprietary combination of ingredients at the highest concentration levels to feed her skin with all the nutrients it could ever need. You can be assured your skin care is created with the earth in mind and that you will achieve beautiful, glowing skin!
