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
If you've been looking for a soothing occlusive for atopic skin, then you've just found The One! The Barrierderm Relief Balm from SKIN&LAB can fix a number of skincare issues, from periocular dermatitis, to eczema, to minor skin irritations. It's also a great second moisturizer for persistently dry skin, to seal in ingredients and fortify your skin barrier. Thick, smooth and hypoallergenic, it derives its purple tinge from azulene, which is combined with shea butter, beta-glucan, algae and turmeric extract for one super-nourishing balm.
Kanvas Beauty is proud to be the official stockist for SKIN&LAB in Australia & New Zealand.
This occlusive silicone-based balm isn't for everyone. We think it's ideal for atopic skin conditions and chronic dry skin, but will be too heavy and congesting for oily or acne prone skin. If your skin barrier has been compromised by overusing acids or just feels dry no matter what you're putting on your face, try using this as a second moisturizer to boost moisture retention.
Use after cleansing and toning as your moisturizer, or as a second moisturizer. Alternatively, apply a thick layer as a sleeping pack. You can also apply on your eyelids to combat eczema flares. This product can be used for face and body.
Precautions: Stop using the product immediately and consult a dermatologist when redness, swelling, or other skin irritations occur, and consult a physician. Avoid applying the product on open wounds or skin inflammation. Keep away from direct sunlight and out of reach of infants and children.
