The word Sanitas means good health and wellbeing in Latin and to us, Sanitas is more than just a brand name.
The meaning truly embodies everything we stand for and is the lens in which we frame all of our formulations.
To us, healthy skin is more than topical products: it’s a lifestyle. It’s about eating right, exercising and all things balance.
The healthy, creative energy of Boulder feeds our spirit and provides an ideal environment for the formulation of pure, non-toxic and effective skin care.
Yes, we're control freaks!
“I used to be offended when someone called me a control freak – now I wear it as a badge of honor and the proof is in the results you get from our products. As the sole owner of a female led, eco-conscious manufacturing company, I love that we’re able to control every part of our process – from inception until the product touches your skin. We’re very proud of the fact that we formulate and manufacture our own products in Boulder.
We let our products do the talking. If you use Sanitas you already know. If you try it, you’ll understand.”
– Lisa Crary | CEO + Owner
We believe good skin health is the result of more than topical products – it’s a lifestyle. Our mission is to employ a strategy of progressive science, research and education to continuously strengthen the skin through topical, nutritional and wholistic strategies.
We strive to lead through innovation and to maintain the highest standards for the ingredients we use in our products. We work every day to earn and maintain the loyalty and respect of our staff, our customers, our community and the world we live in through conscious environmental practices, uncompromised quality control and the highest level of customer care.
OUR COMMITMENT TO TRANSPARENCY
Our associates are our most precious assets and we take great care to ensure a workplace that is diverse, safe and equitable. We believe diversity is vital to our success and conduct our business with integrity and zero tolerance for discrimination of any kind. We pay livable wages and help ensure the well-being of our team by offering a comprehensive benefits package. Our people are dedicated to making a difference and to caring for our planet.
We are committed to never doing business with any country or company that engages in the violation of human rights. All of our suppliers are required to submit to a lengthy qualification process and are required to sign our Supplier Code of Conduct that ensures respect for human rights and prohibits the use of child labor, any form of forced labor or human trafficking. We source our ingredients from fair trade companies whenever possible and pledge only to do business with ethical organizations.
As a company, we have a passion for supporting our community. We engage and empower our employees to participate and have a voice in our programs. Our core focus for funding centers around issues of specific interest to women, children and the underserved. But we do more than donate money: we give of ourselves. We have a Volunteer Time Off program, which allows our staff paid time off to volunteer with a cause of their choosing and as a group, we select several causes to volunteer with as a team each year.
respect for the environment
As a company that relies on securing raw materials from around the globe, we understand the importance of planetary awareness and preservation. An integral part of our mission is to operate our business with the most minimal environmental footprint possible. All of our packaging and ink is recyclable. We use only biodegradable shipping materials and reuse all of our shipping containers. We have a “think before you print” policy and have made a shift to digital marketing materials and mailings. We recycle, we compost and we use only non-paper dishes. Our corporate headquarters are located on the GAIA campus in Boulder County, Colorado, which relies primarily on solar power.
respect for ecological constraints
We source as many of our ingredients as possible from eco-cert companies, use only renewable resources and do not use palm oil in any of our products. We utilize low water manufacturing and when creating new products, limit the use of water in our formulations. Many of our products are 100% water free.
