Why Choose Plastic Free Skincare?

Before we delve into the routine, let's explore why plastic free skincare is crucial for the planet and your skin. The beauty industry contributes to 30% of plastic packaging, very little of which is or can be recycled. By opting for plastic free products, you're actively reducing plastic pollution and minimizing the amount of waste sent to landfills or ending up in our natural environments. . 

Additionally, many traditional formulation skincare brands contain up to 80% water, whereas plastic free, concentrated skincare prioritises skin enriching ingredients over water, meaning our products are better for performance and planet.
