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
What is mugwort cream used for?
Because mugwort has anti-microbial, hormone-balancing and anti-inflammatory properties, mugwort cream can be used for skin types with hormonal acne, redness, irritation and bacterial acne. I'm From's Mugwort Cream contains a whopping 73.55% concentration of this lovely plant extract, so it'll deliver to your skin all the benefits mugwort has to offer!
Is mugwort cream good for dry skin?
The Mugwort Cream from I'm From isn't the best option for dry skin, unless you pair it with a facial oil or a serum/essence made for correcting dry skin. Mugwort on its own isn't an emollient, and the cream is lightweight - making it ideal on sensitive, acne-prone and eve oily skin, but persistently dry skin might need some extra reinforcement.
Is mugwort good for sensitive skin?
Mugwort is a good ingredient for sensitive skin, given it is anti-inflammatory and shouldn't cause any irritation. It also goes a long way to reduce redness over time. A mugwort cream is a good start to introduce this plant extract into your routine, given it is less potent than a serum or ampoule, but will still offer benefits envelopped in soothing moisture.
What does mugwort essence do?
A mugwort essence is the perfect complement to your mugwort cream! A mugwort essence does many things, including reducing redness, calming angry breakouts, and soothing irritation. It'll also help to hydrate your skin a bit more, if your skin is on the dehydrated skin, and prep skin for the better absorption of your serum and moisturizer.
Is mugwort good for skin?
Mugwort is extremely good for the skin: it's a gentle herb that won't irritate, but offers a more gentle anti-acne and anti-redness solution for skin that is sensitive and unable to tolerate harsher ingredients. It's also a great complement to active ingredients - we've used it to counter the potential irritation that can come with retinol and acid use, with great results.
Does mugwort brighten skin?
There's little to suggest that mugwort on its own will brighten the skin: it can lend skin a more even complexion by calming redness and breakouts, but doesn't harness the brightening power of say, vitamin C, arbutin or AHAs. That said, you can use it in combination with these active ingredients, to help build your skin's tolerance and soothe it in between applications.
