How the Beauty Industry Impacts the Planet

How the Beauty Industry Impacts the Planet

In honor of #GlobalRecyclingDay, let's take a closer look at how the beauty industry's packaging practices affect our planet and what we can do to make a difference. 

Did you know that the beauty industry produces an astounding amount of packaging every day? From plastic tubes to glass bottles, the sheer volume of packaging contributes significantly to environmental degradation. Shockingly, studies show that approximately 50% of consumers do not recycle their beauty products, exacerbating the issue further. Even more concerning is the fact that many beauty products are not recyclable at all, leading to nearly 3 billion plastic bottles of bathroom waste ending up in landfills each year.

But fear not, there are steps that you can help us to create a greener planet and the plastic consumption reduced without affecting big changes in your buying routine. Here are a few tips:

1. Reduce Overbuying: Instead of purchasing multiple skincare products, opt for one high-quality product that serves multiple purposes. Your wallet and skin will thank you. By minimizing consumption, we can reduce the demand for excessive packaging.

2. Invest in Glass Bottle Skincare: Glass is not only recyclable but also more sustainable than plastic. Look for skincare products packaged in glass bottles to minimize environmental impact.

3. Support Trusted Brands: Choose to support businesses that prioritize sustainability and ethical practices. Avoid high street brands that prioritize mass production over environmental responsibility.

At Oil Divine, sustainability is at the core of everything we do. Our commitment to the planet goes beyond just words—it's reflected in our products and practices. Our Clean Beauty standards are more than just a claim; they're a way of life. Unlike many "clean" beauty brands that use mass-market ingredients and chemical preservatives, our products are 16-free and made from tested and potent natural plant extracts. Every ingredient is sourced ethically from reputable suppliers, ensuring that our products are not only non-toxic to your skin but also non-toxic to our planet. We also use only organic & wild harvested oils that do not damage plant species’ survival.

But our efforts don't stop there. We've carefully chosen packaging materials that are eco-friendly and recyclable. From our high-quality Italian opaque glass bottles to our recyclable plastic lids, every aspect of our packaging is designed with sustainability in mind. We have only few 30ml and 100ml bottles that use plastic lids, and they are completely recyclable. We're proud to say also that our products are packaged in materials that are 100% recyclable, like carton boxes and paper craft protection used for shipping.

By choosing Oil Divine, you’re not just investing in high-quality skincare—you’re also supporting a greener, more sustainable future.

Together, let’s embrace the power of recycling and make every day Global Recycling Day
