let's recycle!

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 does Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner do?

Pyunkang Yul's Essence Toner is a low pH, viscous and soothing formula that hydrates and coats the skin in pure moisture. If you have a compromised skin barrier, this product is like relief-in-a-bottle - it'll leave your skin feeling comforted and protected without any stinging or burning!

Is Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner an essence or toner?

We know what an essence is, and we know what a toner is, but what exactly is an "essence toner"? Well, it's a bit of both, that can save time in your multi-step skincare routine! Pyunkang Yul's Essence Toner can be used to correct your skin's pH after cleansing just as a toner would, but is also a hydration treatment essence in-an-of itself. You can layer this toner or even apply another layer after using a serum.

Is Pyunkang Yul Toner good for acne?

Pyunkang Yul's Essence Toner is a great choice for those looking to balance out their anti-acne treatments. Anti-acne cleansers for example, can be very stripping. This might be useful to unclog pores, but can leave your skin feeling dry and tight. Applying the mildly-acidic Essence Toner afterwards returns the skin back to its natural pH, making your serums and creams perform better (e.g. retinoids).

Is Pyunkang Yul Toner good for oily skin?

All of Pyunkang Yul's formulations are herbal-based - and the inclusion of Astragalus Membranaceus Root extract in its Essence Toner can help regulate excess sebum production.
