6 Ways Skintastic Cosmeceuticals Is Becoming More Eco-Friendly

When it comes to the products people buy, consumers are increasingly adopting a green mentality. Natural and organic ingredients across product categories are becoming more popular for their positive health and environmental impacts.

The beauty industry is responding to consumers by making eco-friendly products and packaging a reality for those who love their beauty products, but also love the earth. Here are six ways Skintastic Cosmeceuticals is stepping up.

Our Commitments

1. WASTE REDUCTION AND RECYCLING


We use the smallest box size that items will fit into for each order. This saves tonnes of cardboard per year! We also use package fill that's 100% recycled matter and 100% recyclable. 


2. JOINING THE ORGANIC AND SUSTAINABLE MOVEMENT


Harsh chemicals and toxins are the last thing you want in your everyday products. Everyone should want only the best ingredients to keep their skin, hair and face looking amazing. More consumers are buying organic products. Organic beauty products are free of harmful chemicals, making it safer for the environment and the workers that make the products.


3. BANNING MICROBEADS


The Microbead-Free Waters Act was passed in 2015, which banned micro as an ingredient in any formula. Microbeads are tiny plastic particles that go from the soap you use to wash your face, all the way into the ocean. Microbeads pollute waters, and contaminate the food chain with toxins. Although mircobead products are still being used, as of 2018 they can no longer be produced. This is a win-win for your bath products and for the eco-system.


4. USING RENEWABLE ENERGY


More and more beauty brands are taking a healthier, more eco-focused approach to not only their products, but also their manufacturing.


5. PUTTING THE ENVIRONMENT FIRST


At Skintastic Cosmeceuticals, we recognise the responsibility we have as a business, and as individuals, to make important changes to help the environment. Our eco-friendly green policy follows leading industry standards that include never testing products on animals, avoiding the use of harmful ingredients, minimizing waste and efficient energy usage. Products made without toxins aren’t just better for you, they’re better for the environment.


6. CARBON OFFSET DELIVERIES


Our delivery partner Sendle offsets the carbon emissions from all their deliveries.

Here at skintastic we are constantly thinking of ways we can improve our processes to create a sustainable business.We’re always learning, and looking for opportunities to improve what we do and how we do it. We also want to invite our customers to be part of this conversation, and  welcome any feedback that helps us consider what we can do better.
