Your questions, answered.

Our refill pouches generate 99% less CO2 emissions than recycled glass containers — and when you refill a bottle multiple times, that percentage goes higher and higher. Click here to learn more.

Plus, there's less plastic in a pouch than there is on the bottle tops — those lids, pumps, and droppers, which can't be recycled — so let's reuse them as long as we can!

You can reuse the pouches (germinate seeds in 'em, for one idea!) or recycle them with TerraCycle. But even if they end up in the landfill, our climate is a lot happier that you refilled your bottle instead of buying a new one!

Recycling is a broken system with a huge energy and emissions footprint. Refilling and reusing are the way of the future. 💪

Subscriptions are awesome for saving time and money.

You'll receive your products in a gorgeous glass bottle, which you'll keep and refill when empty. (Refilling is way better than recycling.)

You can choose whatever schedule works for you, and you can change, skip, or cancel anytime through your account online.

There's no catch; we just want to keep your skin and our planet happy using the least amount of resources possible...including your time :)

Whether your skin is excessively oily, super dry, breakout-prone, or somewhere in between, we've got you.

With three different cleanser options, two different serums, and more, you can customize your own Activist Method to your needs.

Everything we use is rated 1 for safety by the EWG, and we consciously choose sustainable, natural ingredients everywhere possible. Learn more about our ingredients

Absolutely, 100%.

Fun fact: our founder is an animal rights advocate and has been plant based since the age of 12.

Where needed, we do use preservatives. (Products that don't come into contact with water, like our face oil, don't need a preservative.)

We use eco-safe preservatives that are rated 1 by the Environmental Working Group for safety to our bodies and environment. More about the preservatives we use

We know that essential oils can cause sensitivity if they're used above certain concentration levels or left on the skin for too much time.

That's why we use them at a safe amount and only use them in two of our cleansers. They're only on your skin for a minute and they make washing your face so much more enjoyable before you rinse them off. (We have an EO-free cleanser option, too.)

Absolutely! You're amazing for reusing a container you already have.
