SUSTAINABILITY

 

PROFUMI FLUVIALI'S PRODUCTS ARE INSPIRED AND DERIVED FROM NATURE.

OUR 5 WAYS TO PRESERVE NATURE'S PRECIOUS GIFT:

 

1.  PROFUMI FLUVIALI USES INGREDIENTS DERIVED FROM PLANTS.  WE USE JUST A FEW INGREDIENTS IN EACH OF OUR FRAGRANCES.  OUR FRAGRANCES DO NOT INCLUDE PETROLEUM DERIVED PRODUCTS OR PROPELLANTS.  OUR FRAGRANCE OIL USES NO ADDED ALCOHOL. OUR NATURAL SPRAY USES 25% LESS ALCOHOL THAN EAU-DE-PARFUMS AND EAU-DE-TOILETTES. 

OUR PRODUCTION IS DONE IN THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY.  FIRST WE MEASURE AND COMBINE THE PLANT EXTRACTS.  WE THEN LEAVE THESE TO MACERATE FOR UP TO 3 MONTHS DURING WHICH THE UNIQUE OLFACTORY ACCORDS DEVELOP.  THE RESULTING LIQUID IS THEN CHILLED TO CRYSTALLIZE ANY IMPURITIES.  THE CHILLED LIQUID IS THEN FILTERED 3 TIMES, LEAVING A SPARKLING CLEAR FRAGRANCE.  LASTLY, THE LIQUID IS BOTTLED AND PACKED BY HAND. 

 

2.  PROFUMI FLUVIALI'S PRODUCTS ARE CONCENTRATED 'EXTRAIT DE PARFUM' STRENGTH.  THIS MEANS THAT WE REDUCE THE CARBON FOOTPRINT OF OUR BUSINESS BECAUSE WE ARE PACKAGING AND TRANSPORTING LESS VOLUME THAN STANDARD DILUTE PERFUMES. WE DELIVER TO OUR US CUSTOMERS BY SURFACE TRANSPORT THAT HAS A LOWER CARBON FOOTPRINT THAN AIR. WE ALSO OPT FOR CARBON OFFSET WITH THE SHIPPING COMPANY. 

 

3.  WE ARE A FAMILY OWNED MICRO-COMPANY.  OUR PRODUCTS ARE HAND MADE AND PACKED IN SMALL BATCHES IN A  QUALITY CONTROLLED FACILITY IN THE FOOTHILLS OF THE ITALIAN ALPS.  WE PROVIDE REAL JOBS FOR EXPERIENCED CRAFTSPEOPLE.

 

4. OUR PACKAGING IS FULLY RECYCLABLE.  OUR BOTTLES ARE GLASS.  OUR DISPENSER AND SPRAY PUMPS HAVE THE MINIMUM AMOUNT OF PLASTIC IN THEM IN ORDER TO FUNCTION.  THE MAIN COVER OF OUR CAPS AND PUMPS IS RECYCLEABLE ALUMINUM.  OUR RE-USABLE POCHETTES ARE 100% COTTON.

 

5. WE OFFER A RECYCLING SERVICE IN NEW YORK, USA AND LA SPEZIA, ITALY.  WE WILL RECYCLE FREE OF CHARGE ANY OF OUR PACKAGING RETURNED TO US.
