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
Mary & May - Cica Tea Tree AHA PHA Toner - 30ml / 200ml
$5.95 - $24.95
The vegan Cica Tea Tree AHA PHA Toner from Mary & May is made for skin with acne and scarring. The active formula uses exfoliants gluconolactone and citric acid to soften and disloge pore-cogging gunk, while tea-tree, niacinamide and cica extracts act as anti-inflammatories to soothe redness. Plus, the toner also contains Aquaxyl™, which is a patented, plant-based ingredient described by its manufacturer as a "magic moisturizer". Hard to not love the sound of that! It is meant to both increase the presence of NMFs (Natural Moisturizing Factors such as hyaluronic acid) in the skin, as well as prevent moisture loss. This is critical when you're using acid exfoliants, so your skin won't dry out and damage your barrier (which, in turn, can worsen acne).
