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
You know Weleda's Skin Food range lives up to the hype, because its products have been around since 1926! That's right: for almost 100 years, this Swiss brand has been producing its famous, fragrant salve for dry and rough skin.
The original Skin Food is a rich cream blend of emollients such as sunflower seed oil and sweet almond oil with occlusives such as lanolin and beeswax. Together, they function to both soften the skin, as well as encourage moisture retention. There's also organic chamomile and calendula extracts for its soothing benefits, while the trademark scent of sweet orange, lavender and vanilla will make you smell like you've left a day spa.
The Light version is very much similar in function, although with a comparatively lightweight texture as the name suggests. The formula replaces sweet almond oil with cocoa seed butter and uses a smaller amount of lanolin. Skin Food Light also works better under makeup (in our opinion).
Available in Original and Light.
Product of Switzerland, using cultivated ingredients from France, Germany & Switzerland.
Kanvas Beauty is proud to be an official stockist of Weleda.
Weleda advises you to use Skin Food to protect and nourish rough skin, such as elbows, heels and chapped hands. Youc an also use it as an intensive facial moisturiser for persistently dry skin, which admittedly is how most of us use it! Combination skin types may prefer the Light version.
For daily use on the face and irritated areas of skin. Use as often as required.
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.
