Hearing the words, "ethics in business" can sometimes feel like an oxymoron. From price gouging to dangerous ingredients, companies don't always seem to have the best interest of customers in mind.
Simple Apothecary is different. How? From the beginning, I've built this business with ethics. It has always been a priority that Simple Apothecary puts people and the planet ahead of profits.
Simple Apothecary Ethos
This isn't a gimmick- this is literally how I make decisions for the company on a daily basis. Maybe it's my background in social services, but I just don't believe a company has to give up doing the right thing in order to make money. There can be a balance.
An Ethical Business
Ethics are rare in business, which is unfortunate. In a sea of mass-produced natural products, I knew I had to set Simple Apothecary apart. Having a clear sense of ethics was a way for Simple Apothecary to stand out as a small and independent business. These ethics elevate and define the quality of the products and the customer experience, from start to finish.
The Spirit of Simple Apothecary
The ethos is the spirit in which Simple Apothecary is operated as a business. Every business decision is made with these principles in mind.
The well-being of people and the earth always come before profit. Customers, employees, and the environment, will be the priority.
Simple Apothecary’s line of remedies are always natural. Natural ingredients are defined as made by nature, minimally refined, chemical free, and as organic and non-GMO as possible.
Handcrafted products are made in small batches using strict manufacturing practices. Ingredients and materials will only come from reputable companies that have clear chains of custody.
Natural care for the body should be affordable. Prices are as low as possible without compromising on standards. The Financial Relief Program helps everyone get the products they need.
ETHICAL BUYING POWER
Ethical buying power is practiced when purchasing raw ingredients and packaging. Small businesses will be chosen before corporations, domestic companies before foreign, and preference is given to companies with similar ethics.
Simple Apothecary gives back to the community through product donations, sponsorship, and paid employee time volunteering. Every company should be a benefit to their community. Simple Apothecary strives to be a benefit to Red Bluff, CA and the surrounding areas.
