As with all our ingredients and manufacturing, sustainability is very important to us. This not only includes how our products are sourced, but also the means in which they are produced, and the impact this has on the environment.
When we began searching for the highest quality, and clinically studied ingredients to make our products with, it was important to us that we discussed with these suppliers, the issue of sustainability.
Part of the benefit of a product like collagen, is that is enables us to use the parts of the animal (ie fish) that would otherwise be discarded.
We value a nose-to-tail philosophy and this is one of our main criteria when selecting suppliers.
All our marine collagen is now sourced from France.
Our selected suppliers for our most popular products take pride in being part of the MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) which is an international environmental certification body created to certify fisheries according to environmental criteria, such as stock management (making sure that fish by-product used in making the marine collagen are from fish that are not on a critically endangered fish species as listed in the International Union for Conservation of
Nature red list), as well as ecosystem maintenance and traceability.
Our suppliers of keratin are locally based, and also take pride in the sustainability of their NZ wool derived functional keratin products. Wool is shorn from sheep at the start of each summer ensuring the sheep survive the summer heat while growing a new coat in time to be well protected for winter. All wool comes from grass fed, free range NZ sheep, and all possible care is taken not to harm any animal in the process of shearing.
Our Whey Protein Concentrate is sourced from sustainably farmed cows in Australia. Pasture fed, free range and hormone and GMO free insures the highest quality.
Our New Zealand bovine (type II) collagen in our Protein and Collagen Complex formula comes from the South Island of NZ from sustainably sourced, hormone free, free range and pasture fed bovine bi-product in a process that is cogent with our node-to-tail (no waste) philosophy.
None of our ingredients are tested on animals at any stage of the manufacturing journey, from supply, to the end product.
All products are manufactured locally in NZ from our French, Australian, and New Zealand ingredients.
At Jeuneora, we take a hands-on approach with all of our products. None of our supplements are bulk-bought, or ready-made and we take pride in personally testing each batch, or new formula we create, ourselves.
We are very proud of this transparent process, and we will continue to seek out the highest quality, and most sustainable products we are able to find in order to produce the products that we make.
That Plastic Issue
We are extremely excited to announce that in late Feb we will be partnering with an amazing company that can offer recycling/reusing of all Jeuneora plastic packaging including labels and scoops within NZ.
They have a super easy way for you to join up online for free, then simply grab a big box and start saving your used containers and scoops and print off a shipping label and post back for free!
Your used containers will then be turned into things such as playground equipment, furniture, and more!
They have a zero landfill policy meaning everything that gets sent back to them will be repurposed.
How can you get involved?
1. Grab a big cardboard box and start collecting your empties. The more you collect, the more efficient it is for us to run the programme.
2. Let your fellow #jeuneoratribe friends know, and either encourage them to collect their own, or donate them to your own collection.
3. Once we announce the programme is officially up and running, we'll let you know where to go to join up online.
We are so stoked to be taking steps to help reduce waste.
At this stage the recycling programme will only be available to NZ residents, however we are working on expanding this as we are able to.
Small steps towards big change.
We are committed to being a company that prides itself on sustainable practices and the highest quality products.
