  • Skincare packaging - Eco friendly, post consumer waste (PCW)

    Posted by Anonymous on August 27, 2019 at 2:10 pm

    Hi Everyone! I have recently started my skin care line but I am now in the process of looking for the packaging! For me its extremely important to use eco friendly packaging such as glass, aluminum, paper , seed paper etc. so i was wondering if anyone here can help me with recommendations of a supplier who does this? 
    I have been struggling with finding a manufacturer that can do full green packaging! I know there might be slight limitations but i would like to do as much as I possible can.

    For some more details, the products that I will have are: Body cream, face moisturizer, face oil/serum, lip balm and hand and nail cream.

    * on another note, would you need to know the formulations to see if its viable with the eco friendly packaging?

    Thanks in advance!

    are you looking for a manufacturer to fill products or are you just looking for a packaging supplier?  Glass seems like a viable option for everything other than the lip balm. They will need to know ingredients  to let you know if  there could be potential  incompatibilities (unless you stick with glass in which case just watch out for light instability)

    Things like this (https://www.sks-bottle.com/EcoCosmeticTubes.html) are another option  but make sure your preservative systems are robust and monitor the filled packaging over time  to watch for issues
