FAQ about Refills

How do refills work?

1. When your product is empty, save the container.

2. Order a refill and save 10% (or 15% if you subscribe).

3. Squeeze the refill pouch into your container.

How do refill pouches reduce CO2 emissions?

Pouches greatly reduce carbon dioxide emissions compared to recycled glass containers.

Our average glass container weighs 100g and is manufactured overseas. It will travel ~17,000 miles per cycle of recycling and remanufacturing. That's a huge carbon footprint.

A pouch weighs an average of 8g and only travels 8,300 miles thanks to US-based manufacturing.

That means that glass containers generate 115 times the shipping emissions that a pouch does, which doesn't even take into account the huge amount of energy it takes to recycle and re-manufacture glass when it's treated as a single-use container.

If you refill your glass container 10 times, you'll produce >1,000% less greenhouse gas emissions!

How do refill pouches reduce plastic waste?

Our pouches contain just a few grams of plastic, while the components on the containers they refill contain more.

For example, the pump on a 1oz bottle of Healing Water Toning Mist weighs 17g and a refill pouch contains 2.7g.

That's a huge reduction in plastic waste from just one refill. Imagine the impact of refilling all the skincare you use multiple times!

What are refill pouches made from?

Our refill pouches are made of mylar: a lightweight, durable type of plastic.

We love them because they reduce shipping emissions and don't need the protection of boxes and padding during shipment. We ship them in lightweight, 100% post-consumer recycled unpadded envelopes to further reduce packaging waste and shipping emissions.

Are refill pouches compostable?

No, our refill pouches are not. The term compostable means that a material should disintegrate just like a natural material like paper does. As skincare makers, we must ensure that our products are leak-proof and protected from germs for many months. Using a compostable pouch would result in leaky products and possible bacteria, yeast or mold contamination.

Plus, compostables are only beneficial when they are properly composted at home or in an industrial facility. If they go to a landfill instead, they rot in anaerobic decomposition. This generates methane, a greenhouse gas 25x more potent than CO2, which exacerbates climate change. Most households do not have access to proper composting, which means the problems of compostable packaging outweigh the benefits.

Are refill pouches recyclable?

The 3 Rs are reduce, reuse, and lastly, recycle.

Mylar pouches are not accepted in curbside recycling, but they can be recycled through TerraCycle via a TerraCycle dropoff point, or you can ship them back to us and we'll send them to TerraCycle. If you send us your pouches, please send several at a time for efficiency, clean them thoroughly so they don't leak, avoid plastic tape, and use an envelope instead of a box.

We believe it's important to consider that putting resources into recycling such a small amount of material may have a net-negative impact on our planet. The water for cleaning, fuel for shipping, energy for separating and melting down materials, and time and effort that could be spent on other environmental initiatives are all worth thinking about.

We believe that by reducing plastic by 75% and CO2 emissions by 99%, which does not include recycling any pouches, our refills are a big improvement over recycling glass containers, which are currently the status quo for sustainable skincare.

What makes your refill pouches eco-friendly?

You're probably familiar with the three Rs: reduce, reuse, recycle.

Refill pouches allow us to reuse containers and reduce emissions, energy and waste first. Recycling is the last of the three Rs because it's an imperfect, resource-intensive process that is actually quite wasteful.

It would be better if the pouches were easily recyclable, but even though they're not, they still save energy, emissions and waste compared to glass containers.
