How We are Making a Difference

Preserving and protecting the environment plays an important role in our business philosophy. We have embraced the Earth’s natural diversity and sought strategic alliances with environmentally conscious manufacturers using the most readily available recycled materials whenever possible. Our primary manufacturing plant has achieved numerous international accolades and certifications, including EcoCert, which ensures food and cosmetics are manufactured using natural and organic ingredients in accordance with respectful environmental practices.

Our plant has also achieved EcoLabel Certification, Hong Kong Green Mark Certification, and GMPC (Good Manufacturing Practice of Cosmetic Products) from both the U.S. FDA and European Union. Our cruelty-free products are never tested on animals and no animal ingredients are used in our formulations. Most products can be recycled and we encourage customers to do their part. RSA is a part of the WasteWise Business Network, an organization established by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to promote waste reduction, recycling, and recycled product procurement.

How We Protect What is Important to You

RSA has been a leader in developing products that allow hotels to foster their environmental concerns while still remaining budget friendly. We are constantly researching and developing new materials and packaging that minimize environmental impact. Our pioneering efforts have yielded product lines including Green Natüra, which features Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic as well as bio-additives to assist in product degradability.

Environmental sustainability also plays an important role in product design. For example, our signature “Waste Reducing” soap eliminates the unused center of traditional bars, allowing hotels to offer a larger size with less waste. We offer recycled paper packaging, soy based inks and other innovative materials designed to reduce environmental impact.

EcoPure® is an organic additive that accelerates the biodegradation process of plastic products and plastic packaging in a biologically active landfill and enhances the environmental sustainability of these products in their end-of-life.

Post Consumer Recycled Materials (PCR) are featured in some of our amenity lines and custom products, including Green Natüra. Using recycled plastics keeps waste out of landfills and helps sustain a healthy environment.

Many products are produced with paper made from up to 100% Recycled Materials, including cartons, standard and tissue paper used for soaps, and labels. Keep the environment in mind when choosing recycled packaging.

In an effort to create bottles, paper wraps and cartons as environmentally friendly as possible, we use 100% Soy Based Inks whenever possible.
