When we started Dragon Skincare, we were determined that our ingredients would cause no harm to people, animals or the environment. That’s why our products are vegan, animal cruelty free, paraben free, non-GMO and all-natural. It’s also why we have just joined 1% for the planet.

This awesome international organisation was founded in 2002 to encourage more businesses to donate 1% of their sales to environmental groups. Their mission is to "build, support and activate an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet.” Members assist NPOs that protect land, forests, rivers and oceans and also encourage sustainable methods of energy production. The categories supported include alternative transportation, climate change, energy and resource extraction, environmental education, environmental law and justice, environment and human health, food, land, pollution, water and wildlife.

We can’t argue with that, so for us, it was a no-brainer to join.

This means that 1% of our profits go directly towards NPOs that are working hard to protect our environment. It also means that by purchasing Dragon Skincare products, you’re doing the best you can for your inked skin, and making a difference to the planet!

This is a seriously legit organisation, so we feel super comfortable that the money we donate is going towards good work. They evaluate the track record, credibility and impact of the non-profit organisations they/we contribute to and also verify the contributions made by the member companies.

By 2012, the global network had contributed more than $100 million to environmental preservation and we are super proud to be part of the initiative.
