Formulary 55

Modern Botanicals for Body and Home

Who They Are

Formulary 55 launched in 2012 as a small team of makers in Seattle, Washington. The goal? To bring the world bath, body and home products that not only look, feel and smell luxurious, but work effectively and are handcrafted with intention down to the last botanical ingredient.

Now headquartered in Southern Colorado, Formulary 55 brings together the skills of a multitalented, dedicated group of makers, entrepreneurs and creatives to develop by hand high-quality soaps, candles, lotions, washes and other pampering products, as well as powerful, natural, great-smelling home care products. Inspired by the botanical, plant-based ingredients that go into each of their items, their products are Certified Cruelty Free and 100% vegan, and have been featured in Lucky, O Magazine, Seattle Magazine and Sunset Magazine!

Why We Like Them

Formulary 55 hand makes high-quality, feel-good luxury products that also make us at EarthHero feel good about their impact on the earth! Every one of their products is Certified Cruelty Free, meaning none of their items – and none of the ingredients hand selected for their products – have been tested on animals. 

Instead of including chemicals that make products seem stronger while also risking harm to the environment, Formulary 55 doesn’t cut any corners. You won’t catch their products with sodium lauryl sulfate – a foaming agent that, in many cases, is derived from unethically-sourced palm oils or petroleum. Phthalates often sneak into fragrances, and parabens are used as a preservative in lots of beauty products seen on shelves in the store – but with Formulary 55 products, they’re off the menu! Instead, Formulary 55 relies on plant-based ingredients that not only work effectively, but help you kick back and pamper yourself. We also love their all-natural, sulfate-free home care collection, which makes cleaning less of a chore and more of an aromatherapy session – all without dyes and sulfates.

In addition to their carefully crafted formulas, Formulary 55 puts sustainability first with their packaging as well. Plastic free, paper-wrapped bath bombs? Check. Body wash in a glass bottle? Check. Formulary 55 works to ensure as much of their packaging as possible is plastic conscious and made from recyclable materials. 

Another major bonus is the handcrafted attention to detail that the Formula 55 team puts into each of their creations. Much like us at EarthHero, they’re a can-do group of sustainability warriors that care about the quality of their products and the impact they have, both on our day-to-day well-being, and on the environment.

Formula 55 is the perfect go-to for sustainably effective and luxurious bath, body and home products. So go ahead and treat yourself!

Cruelty Free is a certification process through PETA that labels products that are not tested on animals. All companies that are included on PETA’s cruelty-free list have signed a statement verifying that they don’t use ingredients or create finished products that help conduct or pay for any tests on animals.

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.
