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
How well does Dr Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm absorb into skin?
For what is essentially a facial oil, Dr Jart's Ceramidin OIl Balm absorbs surprisingly well. Mind you, it doesn't absorb the way a water-based product does, but won't on top of your skin forever like some of the facial oils out there on the market.
How does Dr Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm improve skin texture?
Dr Jart's Ceramidin Oil Balm is a mix of 9 plant oils rich in ceramides, to help trap and retain moisture underneath your skin's surface. Ceramides help make up your skin barrier, and when your barrier has been compromised (overexfoliation, sunburn etc), applying this balm on top of your moisturizer will help your skin look more plump, improving its texture by reducing that 'crepey' appearance.
Does Dr Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm feel greasy?
Dr Jart's Ceramidin OIl Balm is essentially a thick balm that melts into a facial oil - but a lightweight one at that, so it shouldn't feel greasy like you're taking a tub of lard and applying it all over your skin! It will have the slip and shine of an oil, so use sparingly and where your skin needs the attention. You can even dot it along your cheekbones for an extra glow.
Does Dr Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm even out skin tone?
Dry skin can trigger hyperpigmentation, so Dr Jart's Ceramidin Oil Balm can help even out the skin-tone indirectly by correcting this issue. It doesn't directly target hyperpigmentation the way a vitamin C or arbutin serum does, but works well in combination with these ingredients.
What does Dr Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm do?
Think of Dr Jart's Ceramidin Oil Balm as a skin repair salve: apply when your skin is feeling like it can't hold on to moisture, in dry climates, or after a heavy exfoliation to help reinforce your skin's barrier. Side note - you can even use this as a hair oil!
Do you apply Dr Jart Oil Balm before or after moisturiser?
You can apply Dr Jart's Oil Balm before or after a moisturizer, it's really up to your preferences. We like applying a hyaluronic acid-based cream over a damp, misted face, and 'sealing' the moisture in with Dr Jart's Ceramidin Oil Balm. It's the perfect overnight treatment to wake up to healthier, glowing skin!
Does Dr Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm cause irritation?
Dr Jart's Ceramidin Oil Balm shouldn't cause irritation but just be aware that it is composed of plant oils, which include essential oils like patchouli and geranium. If you're allergic to fragrant oils or if your skin doesn't do well with facial oils, then this product is best avoided. Remember, always patch test first!
