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
Purito's Defence Barrier Cleanser is a slightly acidic gel facewash that's ultra-gentle on irritated and dehydrated skin. It's even gentler than the Low pH Good Morning Cleanser from COSRX! But don't be fooled: this isn't just a passive facewash that cleans and nothing more. Cica and amino acids work together to soothe and repair fractured skin. Meanwhile, tea-tree calms inflammation and removes bacteria from your skin's surface. Reach for it when your skin feels sensitive, or needs a break from harsh anti-acne cleansers.
This product has a pH of 5.5.
