FOUNDATION: SIMPLE // NATURAL // RESPONSIBLE
At Otter Wax, we know that quality can’t be rushed. Our line of all-natural Fabric Care, Leather Care, and Apothecary products, are formulated and hand-made right here in Portland, Oregon.
Right down to the recyclable packaging, our products are simple and natural. We do not use any animal fats, fillers, petroleum distillates, mineral oil or chemical preservatives.
At Otter Wax, we believe that labeling a product as All-Natural should not be used as a marketing tool, but rather as a way of demonstrating our commitment to making products that are pure, honest, (and most importantly) effective.
MATERIALS: PLANTS // ANIMALS // SOURCING
We believe that Mother Nature has given us all the tools we need to create products for everyday life. We use natural ingredients that come from sustainably harvested sources and offer the least amount of environmental impact.
Otter Wax products are made from natural plant-based ingredients and humanely harvested beeswax and lanolin without sacrificing effectiveness. At Otter Wax we’ve always been passionately against animal testing. We never have, and never will use animals to test our products.
We only use suppliers that match our environmental values. We are always working to redefine and strengthen our relationships with suppliers and engaging ongoing dialogue.
PROCESS: SUPPLIERS // PRODUCTION // CUSTOMERS
In a nutshell, Otter Wax requires each of its suppliers to meet the highest industry standards. In addition to rigorous quality assurance, suppliers must be committed, as we are, to ensuring the highest standards of social responsibility.
We stay pretty busy around here, but that doesn’t mean we rush it. All of our products are made and packaged by hand, with many steps taken along the way to ensure that we’re delivering the highest quality products to our customers.
We recognize that our customers are our lifeblood. Without them, we wouldn’t exist. We think that our products are pretty great, but we’re always striving to improve on things like quality assurance, customer satisfaction, and the ordering process.
