While we too love to get colorful box mailers covered with inspiring messages filled with more adorable boxes containing beauty products wrapped beautifully in plastic, foil, and ribbons we love Mother Earth much, much more. While the initial unwrapping is fun and gleeful, it is horrifically wasteful. Unfortunately, many beauty brands are so concerned with grabbing the consumer’s eye; they overcompensate by investing tons of PR materials and mailers full of excess packaging. Considering all of the powerful, healing ingredients SkinADX uses comes directly from Mother Earth, we are acutely aware of the necessity to not pollute her. It is our obligation to not add to the 2.5 billion metric tons of solid waste annually. Instead, of focusing on cute, useless packaging, Skin ADX focuses on quality ingredients in minimal packaging. The product containers and 90% of the shipping materials are not recyclable, but up-cyclable! What Is Up-Cycling? Up-Cycling is the process of converting old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful. For example, you can turn the glass serum bottles into diffusers/air fresheners by pulling out the bulb and pipette from the dropper then simply screw the silver neckband back onto the bottle, fill with your favorite essential oils and a few bamboo reeds and wallah! You now have an adorable diffuser that will bring a smile to your face every time you walk into the room and inhale the blissful aroma ….unlike that fleeting thrill followed by the wave of guilt as you approach the recycle bin to toss all the excess paper and plastic you got from last weeks Birch Box
With the average American producing 130 lbs. of garbage a month, we should all be looking for ways to cut down reduce the carbon footprint.
While elaborate boxes and bows look cool they add no value and don’t come cheap. Skin ADX would much rather put the funds towards high-quality ingredients that actually work to improve the quality of your skin. We focus on quality ingredients in minimal packaging and let the product speak for itself. When it comes to your skin, it’s what happens after the product is out of the box that counts.
