Skincare has long been a staple in our daily routines. However, the beauty industry has a dirty little secret: it is one of the largest contributors to waste worldwide. In fact, there are over 120 billion items of skincare waste across the globe, with most of it being plastic. This is a massive problem that needs to be addressed, and one New Zealand–based luxury green beauty brand has taken the lead in finding a solution.
Founded by Emma Lewisham, this brand is officially the first in the world to model a solution for circular skincare. Achieving circularity relied heavily upon innovating packaging, as the single largest contributor of carbon emissions in the beauty industry is single-use packaging. By rethinking this traditional approach to packaging, Emma Lewisham has created a truly sustainable solution for skincare.
But what exactly is circular skincare?
Simply put, it is a holistic approach that aims to eliminate waste and reduce environmental impact. This can be achieved by using sustainable materials, such as recycled or biodegradable packaging, as well as creating refillable products that can be used again and again. By doing so, we can drastically reduce the amount of waste.
