What Is Refillable Beauty?

Oct 22, 2022Géraldine Poukens

Ever stopped to wonder what happens to those empty tubes and bottles we threw into the bin without a second thought? Well, those innocent-looking containers might be causing more harm than you realise. As they decompose, they release harmful particles into the soil and, over time they eventually enter the water and pollute the environment. And don't even get us started on the havoc plastic wreaks when it ends up in landfills as it releases harmful chemicals into the surrounding. 

In a world where 68% of consumers prefer sustainable packaging and products, refillable beauty emerges as a shining beacon of hope in the fight against global warming and plastic pollution, making a plastic-free world. But let's clear up a common misconception: sustainability isn't just about slapping a "refillable" label on a product or a packaging and calling it a day. Oh no, it's so much more than that. (Check out our deep dive into sustainability here!)

Today we will talk about one of the most important factors of sustainability, refillable.

What Is a Refill?

If we look at its simple dictionary meaning then refill is pretty straightforward and means something to fill again. The concept of refilling in the beauty or skincare industry is giving your favourite beauty products a second life by filling up the same container for less price than the original one after cleaning it. Genius, right?

Is Refill Sustainable?

Absolutely, yes! A refill is a great way towards sustainability. By opting for refills, you're not just scoring a sweet deal; you're also doing your part to shrink your carbon footprint. Refills can slash carbon dioxide emissions by a whopping 70% and save 65% of energy and water resources. Talk about a win-win!

Is Refill Packaging Recyclable?

Now, let's address the elephant in the room: refill packaging recyclability. Drumroll, please... The answer is yes! Refill packaging is indeed recyclable. 

Made from a single layer of plastic, refill containers can easily be recycled with a very small amount of energy consumption. It's like giving Mother Earth a much-needed breather.

Are Refills Better For The Environment?

But wait, there's more! Refillables aren't just good for the environment—they're also kind to your wallet. By opting for refills, you're not only reducing heaps of trash from oceans and landfills but also saving on the production costs of new plastic bottles and cardboard boxes. It's a beauty win that keeps on giving!
