Yay—let's recycle! Here’s a quick guide for when you've finished using all your products:
1. Make the products 'recycle ready' by rinsing it out and cleaning it. What if the product doesn't work for me? Give it to someone who might like to try it! That way, you will minimise wastage and give the product a second home. ♡♡
2. Get the DETAILS! Typically, most skin care packaging is recyclable in Australia, but what can and can’t be recycled depends on where you live. A quick Google search will reveal a recycling guideline based on your state / territory.
3. Can I put this in my recycling bin? If you've checked and the answer is 'yes', give these items a second life and put them in the recycling bin. If it's not, look into enterprises like TerraCycle, to help you properly recycle your beauty products. If the product is recycable through TerraCycle, it is FREE and all you have to do is gather your empty products together, print a recycling label and ship it out - that’s it! They’ll take care of the rest for you.
FYI, recycling plants uses numbers ranging from 1 to 7 to help sort all the materials. PETE stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate and PP stands for Polypropylene — these are both plastics. PAP represents paper / mixed paper / cardboard. See Earth Easy to learn more about your plastics.
That's it babes! Remember to love our earth; love our planet! #dontbetrashy

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Beauty of Joseon Ginseng Moist Sun Serum a suncreen?
Beauty of Joseon's Ginseng Moist Sun Serum does contain UV filters and has been tested by both a Korean and Spanish Lab to verify its rating of SPF50+ PA++++.. However, it has not been tested by the Australian body the TGA, which is why we don't classify it as sunscreen down under. But we're desperately praying more international brands take this step, as we need more diversity in our Aussie-approved sun protection offering!
What is Ginseng Serum good for?
Beauty of Joseon's Ginseng Serum offers several benefits. Ginseng is a traditional hanbang ingredient for addressing hydration, redness and ageing concerns. Ginseng root is rich in both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and helps protect the skin from free radicals (a factor in premature ageing). Together with niacinamide, it'll help calm skin redness and sensitivity. Meanwhile, the saponin content in ginseng along with the vitamin E in the formula will boost the skin's moisture levels.

How long does Beauty of Joseon Ginseng Moist Sun Serum take to be absorbed into the skin?

Is the Beauty of Joseon Ginseng Moist Sun Serum good for acne-prone skin?
