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 Matte Sun Stick a chemical sunscreen?
The new matte sun stick from Beauty of Joseon is a chemical sunscreen. This is because it doesn't use physical filters such as zinc and titanium dioxide to protect skin from UV rays: instead, it uses chemical filters, such as (get ready for some long words) Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Ethylhexyl Triazone, Polysilicone-15. These are all next-generation UV filters and are super effective, but not all have been tested and approved as a sunscreen agent by the TGA. Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine is found in many Aussie sunscreens however, such as Bondi Sands and Cancer Council SPFs.
Is the Beauty of Joseon Sunscreen Stick actually SPF 50?
Beauty of Joseon's SPF appears to be actually higher than 50. The Relief Sun Rice + Probiotic's SPF and PA rating was tested both in Korea and in Spain (the latter in accordance with EU standards), and the results were as follows: Its SPF rating was given a 55.8 ± 7.8 by the Korean lab, and 61 ± 6.6 by the Spanish lab. Meanwhile, its PA rating was determined to be UVA PF 18.5 ± 3.0 P++++ by the Korean Lab, and UVA PF 29.1 ± 6.7 P++++ by the Spanish Lab.
Does it have a white cast?
The Beauty of Joseon Matte Sun Stick does not leave even a hint of a white cast, hooray! This is because it is a chemical sunscreen, and skips mineral filters - which, while super effective at protecting skin from UV rays, aren't exactly melanin-friendly. This product can therefore be comfortably used by everyone, no matter what the skin tone.
Is Beauty of Joseon a clean brand?

By this, we mean that it doesn't use any parabens, sulfates, phthalates, PEGs, ethanol and any ingredients associated with toxicity in its formulas.
