FINNISH SKI WAX MANUFACTURER VAUHTI LAUCH ENVIROMENTAL FRIENDLY AND SUSTAINABLE SKI WAX COLLECTION WITH INNOVATIVE RAW MATERIALS FROM NATURE
Vauhti’s new 360° products will reform the ski wax market and move the product selection into a environmentally friendly direction where raw materials used are coming from nature. New collection called 360°, will be in shops from next winter season on.
Core philosophy of Vauhti is to respect people and nature. No one can close their eyes to climate change or environmental threats anymore. Vauhti want to promote sustainability by developing environmentally friendly products, so that also our children have opportunity to enjoy skiing.
Suurin osa tuotteissa käytetyistä raaka-aineista on peräisin luonnosta. Emme halunneet tuotekehityksessä keskittyä ainoastaan voiteissa käytettyihin raaka-aineisiin vaan asetimme kunnianhimoisemman tavoitteen ja halusimme myös, että 360° malliston pakkausmateriaalit perustuisivat luonnonmateriaaleihin. Onnistuimme saavuttamaan lopputuotteessa 90% luonnonmateriaaleihin perustuvan jalostusasteen.
Vauhti took decision to compensate all carbon contained in ski waxes produced since 2015. from year 2020, Vauhti continues to compensate all the carbon dioxide emissions caused by its production and traveling.
Development work of new Vauhti 360°- series is based
on our two fundamental pillars:
- passion to create innovative and functional ski waxes and
- respect of nature and sustainable values.
Majority of the raw materials used in the products are from natural recourses. We did not want to focus development work only to raw materials of waxes and therefore we put ourselves an ambitious goal that also the packaging materials of the 360° series are from natural resources. We managed to achieve more than 90% of the composition of the final product from natural based materials.
360°-bottles are made of bioplastic instead of petroleum-based plastics. Sugarcane-based plastic is used in the bottles. Solid paraffins are packed in recycled cardboard and kits in jute bags. Ingredients to waxes and maintenance products are coming from vegetal resoures. We use rice, corn and sugarcane based waxes and our solvent is bio-ethanol.
Skiing enthusiasts in its various forms need pure nature. Vauhti wants to develop and offer sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions to the consumer. Naturally from nature to nature.
