The Planet, People, and Peace Initiative

The beauty of Giving

The Luzern Planet, People & Peace Initiative

Luzern has always been what is now known as an ethical business. We follow Fair Trade practices and source ingredients sustainably. We keep our carbon footprint light, and our packaging is FSC-certified and recyclable. Our biodynamic and certified organic botanicals, hand-harvested high in the Swiss Alps, reflect our core values and belief that luxury skin care should be clean and deliver significant results.

Our products are made in small batches, to ensure quality and maintain the utmost purity, cold-processed with mineral-rich Alpine glacial water, and a unique natural enzyme preservation system. Most are vegetarian and gluten-free. We are a US-based, family-run company, still owned by original founders Jennifer Herbert-Coste and Ralph Herbert, a brother and sister team. Our goal has been to create clean cosmeceutical skincare made with the purest ingredients to help people look and feel beautiful, without doing any harm to the planet.

From the beginning, we have always been conscious of wanting to do the right thing, in the right way.

“We decided to focus on giving to these three pillars—Planet, People & Peace—because they are each vital areas of need and they are all interconnected in some way. For example, the destructive cycle of war (or lack of peace) creates immense suffering and can lead to famine and environmental destruction, and environmental changes on Earth can lead to war and famine. By giving to all three areas, we can contribute in a more impactful, holistic and balanced way.”

People

Habitat for Humanity

A global nonprofit housing organization that works in local communities across all 50 states and in approximately 70 countries to help people secure decent, affordable housing. In 2017, Habitat directly helped 3.5 million people achieve this goal.

Pure Ingredients. Powerful Results.

Resilient botanicals that survive, even thrive, in one of the harshest climates on Earth.

Imagine what they can do for the skin.

“One of our primary goals is to constantly think about how we can build a company that is kind to the Earth. We always say, 'We want our company to be around in 100 years, not our packaging.'"
