We’re here to make a difference…. Not just on your skin and in your journey for wellness but in the way beauty products are made and used.
In 2019, the cosmetic packaging market was valued at $26.29 billion and is expected to reach $32.86 billion by 2025.
An estimated 120 billion beauty packages are made each year, most of them from virgin plastic created only to end up in our waste bins.
That’s why we are proud to announce our partnership with Pact Collective to recycle the hard-to-recycle and to create a platform so that the packaging which will all love no longer find itself in landfills.
We invite all our North American customers to mail in up to 10 empty beauty products a month,- ours or another brand’s and Pact Collective will break it down responsibly and create materials for reuse or energy.
