Sustainability.

Our conscious vision

Responsible, mindful, transparent.

At gitti, we're aware of our responsibility towards the environment. Our vision is to fundamentally change the beauty industry.

For us, this starts with better ingredients and continues through production to packaging. Our goal is 100% natural, vegan formulas and sustainable packaging solutions. We're just at the beginning and can't do it alone. Changing an entire industry requires true heroines and heroes to lead the way. Product by product, ingredient by ingredient. We might only be 80% there, but we're 100% committed. Because on the way to a better future, every step counts.

Committed to do better: gitti's conscious packaging cycle.

Our vision

Our vision: sustainability along the entire value chain. gitti products come in packaging with minimal ecological impact which follows our sustainable guidelines: reduce, reuse, recycle.

Reduce

We constantly strive to reduce our packaging to the absolute minimum. Less material, fewer components, less weight, less waste.

Reuse

We are working on refillable solutions so that our packaging can be reused several times and ultimately to reduce the amount of waste produced.

Recycle

We use recycled materials wherever we can and make sure all of our products are easily recyclable.

Our ingredients.

We have a conscious approach to developing our formulas: We don't use synthetic or potentially harmful ingredients, replacing them instead with natural alternatives. All gitti products are made from high-quality ingredients, are produced ethically in the EU, and are 100% vegan and eco-friendly.

We have a clear goal for our nail colours: 100% natural formulas. We've already found replacements for a variety of ingredients found in conventional nail polish. There is however no consistent, official rating system for nail polish. "X-free" claims are most often used to express how many harmful ingredients a nail polish doesn't contain. But as every manufacturer has their own definition or can put their own list together, this claim can often be misleading and can be extended to include ingredients, which normally wouldn't be used in nail polish or that are already forbidden in the EU. We want to consciously distance ourselves from such misleading uses of the "x-free" definition.
All of our nail colours are 19-free, vegan and eco-friendly.

That means the following 19 harmful or potentially harmful ingredients are not contained in our nail colours:
Formaldehyde-releasers, Toluene, Phthalates, Camphor, Animal-derived Ingredients, Parabens, Added Perfumes, Sulfonamide, Xylene, Acetone, Benzophenone-1, Benzophenone-3, Hydroquinones, Colophonium, Mineral Oils & Waxes, Microplastics (according to UNEP's 2015 definition), Diethylhexyl Adipate, EDTA, Triphenyl Phosphate

Transparency is very important to us. Which is why it's only natural for us to explain what's in our products and what isn't. You can find out more about our ingredients in our ingredient glossary or the FAQs.

Our value chain.

We think of sustainability holistically. Along the entire value chain, minimal ecological impact is our priority.

The production of our products takes place under fair conditions in the EU with our certified partners. Finished products are shipped to Germany by road.

Product packaging: At the moment we use a combination of glass, aluminum and recycled PET. Wherever possible, we replace conventional packaging with more sustainable materials: the labels on our nail colours are made from the plant-based material sugarcane ethanol, which is produced organically.
As some components have not yet been developed to the point where recycled materials can ensure the quality needed for beauty products, we're developing innovative solutions and testing alternatives so that we can use only recycled materials in the future. 

Packing materials: All of our orders are packed in Berlin. And all of our gitti sets are lovingly packed by hand. All of our boxes are made from 100% recyclable cardboard. For shipping we use envelopes made of 100% recycled paper with sturdy paper padding - reusable and completely recyclable. 

Shipping: In order to minimise the ecological impact of our products, we ship all gitti orders using certified climate-neutral shipping.

Your conscious choice.

Become part of the Conscious Cycle and help create a more sustainable beauty world! Sustainability doesn't stop with our decisions as a company, but lives in all of us. To ensure that recyclable materials can be returned to the cycle, there is one important step: the separation of packaging components by material and the correct disposal of clean components.
This is how it works with our nail colours: The packaging can be recycled by dissolving any remnants of colour from the bottle – pour a little nail polish remover into the bottle if necessary, and shake until any remaining colour has dissolved. Any colour remnants should be disposed of separately. The cap can be recycled along with other plastics and the empty bottle can be disposed of in your usual glass recycling bin or used as a small flower vase.

Our daily work routine.

Our philosophy inspires us every day, in our offices and all our places of work. We don't use disposable products or plastic, and we want to achieve zero waste by the end of 2021. And it goes without saying that we choose drinks in glass bottles, cotton towels and refillable soap dispensers.
