In Nasei everything is born and returns to the earth
We only use botanical ingredients from plants and seeds of the highest quality, from local organic crops, respectful of your skin and the environment.
Our workshop, located in Amorebieta, surrounded by nature, is the center of all our activities. Our family tradition, which has several generations that have worked the land, means that we have great respect for agriculture and a solid sustainable philosophy.
We believe in the importance of local agriculture, as well as in the ancestral formulas that we have used for generations of collective and plural knowledge. Thus, More than 90% of our ingredients come from Spanish organic crops, where we find incredibly wonderful botany. This is only possible thanks to the dedication of the farmers with whom we have established alliances, to whom we pay the price they truly deserve for their efforts.
The use of local ingredients makes it possible for us to have exhaustive traceability control of our raw materials, in addition to considerably reducing the carbon footprint of all our products.
Our commitment: sustainable containers and packaging
According to the National Institute of Statistics, more than 137 million tons of waste are generated in Spain, of which only 47 million are recycled. Although this figure represents 40% of all waste generated, at Nasei we believe that there is still a lot of work to do by companies and individuals to protect the environment.
We defend the basis of the circular economy, which prioritizes the reuse and recycling of waste. Our effort and commitment has been to apply this sustainable maxim to our packaging, from the bottling of our products to the material we use for shipping.
Why do we minimize the use of plastics? Some plastic cans are made up of different types of plastic, making recycling them impossible or very expensive. Other plastic derivatives, such as cellophane chips used to protect shipments, are also not recycled once they reach the waste management plant.
We prefer to only opt for two materials that can be easily reusable and recyclable: cardboard and amber glass.
All our products, both cosmetics and the home line, are packaged in amber glass jars and bottles, which keeps our products in optimal conditions while they can be recycled eternally. Only 10% of our packaging contains plastic (dispensers and caps).
For labeling, we use recycled vegetable papers, a biodegradable and compostable material. The box in which we store the products is made only of cardboard. Some come with cotton cloth bags.
Our packaging consists of a cardboard box and an inner paper to protect the cosmetics, both made with recycled paper. Thus, we reduce unnecessary felling of trees. Both the box and the inner paper are recyclable and biodegradable. We do not include labels or brochures printed on plastic.
Although we take great care of the details, we cannot ensure that some couriers treat your shipment with the care it deserves. That's why we have reinforced our packages with extra internal protection. To do this, we use paper shavings and cover each jar with a sheet of corrugated cardboard. Thus, such a fragile order arrives in perfect condition, without any plastic!
Some of our shipments in the city of Bilbao are made with Botxoriders. Delivering orders with bicycles allows us to further reduce our carbon footprint.
