Au Natural Skinfood’s aluminium containers are designed to be reused and refilled over and over again with our plant-based eco-refills.
The refills, including the cap, are made of corn starch and sugarcane, which are annually renewable resources. They are fully recyclable as HDPE 2 bio-based and are curbside recyclable in New Zealand.
What’s more is that their production absorbs more carbon emissions than the amount it emits, making the refills carbon negative. They are also smaller and lighter than the average skincare container, which means that they won’t use up the same amount of energy when shipped.
We are currently working on including more products in the refillable range and on designing compostable refills. We have not found a compostable material on the market that doesn’t start to compost when in touch with wet goods such as skincare, but we won’t give up on the search!
Please do not hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries and if you know of any skincare-friendly compostable material we could use for our refills. Your help will be greatly appreciated!
