What luxury means to us and how we relate luxury to sustainability?
Luxury is emotional. A luxury item is an item that we invest in so that it remains in our life rather than a quick, low cost fix that we will need to rebuy within weeks or months. Guided by one of my grandmother’s favourite sayings: “We aren’t rich enough to buy cheap things, my mantra is ‘less is more’ and ‘buy better, buy less’.
Luxury is about savouring something that we don’t have to keep buying and exploiting our resources, finance or the environment. It means that rather than filling up your bathroom with items that may end up being thrown away, you have one beautiful, useful item that you can use and love for longer and with more appreciation each time you do. Investing in our luxury skincare products means that every drop is utilised due to our innovative airless pumps. You also don’t need to use as much of these products as they are rich in powerful active ingredients. These higher quality, organic, cold pressed ingredients are more ecologically friendly.
We believe the thread of luxury needs to work from the ground up, through the ingredients, the formulations and the packaging. Albiva was developed with focus on quality, transparency, authenticity and innovation, valuing quality across craftsmanship, materials, processes and design over quantity. We make sure our ingredients and materials are responsibly sourced and preserve natural habitats, support local economies and provide communities with work. We believe luxury nowadays is experiencing something truly unique, such as our unique formulas that we spent 2.5 years carefully preparing and tweaking to deliver rare and special experience.
