New Study: Plastic Waste is Making our Coral Reefs Sick

Some of our customers have recently asked us whether we use plastic in our product packaging. The answer is no. This is why.

A recent study published in the journal Science has highlighted that more than 11 billion pieces of plastic larger than five centimeters wide are littering coral reefs across the Asia-Pacific region. The study found that the presence of plastic waste makes reefs more prone to infection by as much as 89%, with devastating consequences.

We have chosen our packaging with the environment in mind and purposefully use glass bottles for our serums and aluminium tins for our balms, which are recyclable/reusable and have a low environmental footprint. In addition, unlike plastics, these materials do not leach into our products, which avoids negative consequences for your skin and body.
