Can zero waste exist in the beauty industry? | Natural Products News
Can zero waste exist in the beauty industry? Was a question posed to our founder Karen by Jane at Natural Products News. With sustainable beauty products being part of our range her at Blomma Beauty we were more than happy to unpack this complicated question!
Here are a few quotes from the article which featured some great insights from other natural beauty product companies. Check out the full article here.
“Historically the beauty industry has always had a ‘more is more’ approach. You needed a cream for your eyes, cheeks, chin, earlobes, but now there are really effective formulations that can be used for many different purposes. Silvan Skincare is great at this – its balms can be cleansers, moisturisers, lip balms, dry skin ointments, face masks and more, so you’re only buying one packaged item, not five.”
MacDonald believes the onus is on brands, retailers and companies to be as transparent as possible. “I don’t mean by being the perfect finished eco-friendly article, but documenting their journey, where they’re at now and where they want to be. By being honest about this, you and your customers will be able to see progress. We share the eco credentials of our brands but we need to delve even deeper into the ingredient supply chain and document this for our customers. We as consumers should be asking this of every company.”
