ABOUT OUR PACKAGING
100% recyclable tubes made from plants
Our sunscreen tubes are made from all eco-friendly “green” bio-plastic which is 100% recyclable. This bio-plastic is created by farming sugarcane on sustainable land in Brazil, thousands of miles from the Amazon rainforest. The bio-plastic is then used instead of the fossil fuel sourced material to create flexible squeeze tubes while maintaining the performance characteristics of traditional polyethylene. The bio-plastic is also 100% recyclable, meaning the tubes and cap can be recycled and mixed into Post Consumer Regrind, just like any other polymer.
We’re working on it
Recyclying is only the second best solution. First, we need to cut down on our plastic consumption.
Our tubes are 100% recyclable. We know it's not a perfect solution, which is why we are always looking for enhanced biodegradable alternatives that are environmentally friendly but have the characteristics necessary to contain the sunscreen formula. In fact, we are working on a prototype of just such a solution which we hope to introduce just as soon as we can.
