We believe our products should not only benefit the health and long term well being of your skin, they should also benefit the planet, and the communities that help us create our formulations.

Our Impact

COMPASSION EXISTS AT THE VERY HEART OF IMMUNOCOLOGIE'S ETHOS
Immunocologie founder Karen Ballou has always lived her life compassionately. After surviving cancer and realizing her vision for a clean, conscious skincare brand that embodies whole-body health, she built the brand with the same compassion she embodies in her everyday life.

Karen discovered the power of French Green Clay during her cancer treatments. The ethnobotanist that introduced her to the ingredient is the same person who sources ingredients for the brand today. A longtime friend, Vincent Bourgeteau has dedicated his life to working in economically and politically challenged regions of the world. Through unique relationships cultivated over the years, he has been able to establish mutually beneficial partnerships to create business opportunities in these communities.

IMPACT WITH ROOTS
To support our social responsibility initiatives, our team on the ground works closely with local people and the land to ensure that each action has a regenerative impact.

In Burkina Faso, for example, where some of Immunocologie’s primary ingredients are sourced, 150 tons of fruit are harvested every 18 months. This is offset by replanting the same amount between harvests through agro-ecology, which respects natural ecosystems and integrates the economic, social, and political dimensions of human life. Water and natural resources are managed and co-owned by the local communities.

Each ingredient is sourced in accordance with the Fair-Trade Act and the Nagoya Protocol, an international framework that sets some of the highest standards for sustainable and socially equitable business practices.

Scholarships, grants, school supplies, and higher education opportunities are provided to the families of our farmers, most of whom are women. When the program was initiated, just six students were enrolled in local schools. Now, more than 2,000 students have been enrolled in education.


THOUGHTFUL FORMULATION & PACKAGING
Immunocologie’s custom violet glass bottles protect products from damaging light, which preserves ingredients naturally, helping to eliminate unnecessary waste while also preserving the smell, color, and bioenergy of the products.

The formulations were thoughtfully crafted in Europe but have recently moved production to an organic lab in Maryland to support US-based business and diminish our carbon footprint.

All boxes and shipping materials are made from recycled materials.


Sustainability and social responsibility are a fundamental part of Immunocologie’s DNA. There is, and has always been, integrity behind the brand.
