Spinster Sisters is proudly Plastic Negative Certified from rePurpose Global, the world's leading Plastic Action Platform. As we continue to focus on sustainability we will be adding to our Free From innovation, a line of water-free bars for face, body, and hair in plastic-free packaging. Since launching in November 2021, our customers have eliminated over 130,000 containers from landfills + oceans and save over 4,000 gallons of water.
We use second-hand packing materials, often re-using peanuts, bubble wrap, excess boxes and paper from other shipments. Our stickers and the branded tape we use to close boxes is also biodegradable and so are the seasonal ice packs we use to protect products.
When available, we also use sustainable packaging and to the naked eye our eco-friendly peanuts and foam look like plastic but are made from a natural starch that decomposes in water leaving no waste.
Planes, trains, and automobiles... they all impact the environment. The faster the delivery, the fewer packages share the route of a shipment, putting more vehicles in motion and emitting more carbon per package.
We offer free ground shipping for orders $35+ to encourage our customers to make the more planet friendly choice. For our local shoppers, we also offer convenient free pickup.
We also package our shipments with second-hand packing materials, often re-using peanuts, bubble wrap, excess boxes and paper from other shipments and shredding cardboard from previously used boxes.

During the high-temp months we may use ice packs which are also biodegradable and insulated envelopes to help our products get to you without being compromised by heat exposure. We encourage you to re-use as much of this as you can too! We continue to improve on our practices to reduce our carbon footprint and make the best choices for the planet. Thank you for joining us on our journey of sustainability.
We make every face, hair, and personal care product in our line without junk––no sulfates, phthalates, parabens, PFAS, or dyes. We are certified Leaping Bunny Cruelty-Free, EWG verified, Certified Woman-Owned by the WBENC, and we use vegan and non-GMO ingredients.
We source as locally as we can––not only to support our community––but to minimize our carbon footprint due to shipping. We employ a supplier code of conduct so that our partners' ethics and values align with our own.
Our shea and cocoa butters are always Fair Trade. We partner with Palm Done Right for our RSPO certified sustainable palm oil.
Renewable energy is critical to our process. We consciously craft each of our products at our 100% solar + wind-powered Microsoapery in Golden, Colorado.
All our products are either naked (no packaging) or come in recycled, recyclable, biodegradable, or compostable materials. All of our boxes are FSC certified paperboard with soy based inks and a biodegradable lining.
We're constantly working to improve our practices to minimize our use of packaging. As a part of this commitment we have renewed our mission to focus on innovation in plastic-free and water-free personal care products.
