Behind the Design: Our New No Compromise Packaging

To start the year off fresh, we worked on our outer beauty. With a No Compromise approach to our packaging redesign, we challenged ourselves be to be more than just a pretty package. Our new look is better for the environment, better for the product and better for you.

Biossance, tested.
Mother Earth, approved.

THINK INSIDE THE BOX

Our containers got a facelift too. Same formula, new look.

 Redesigned 100% Squalane Oil

100% SQUALANE OIL

More to Love

Increased size to 100mL. Twice as much product for the same price.

Easy Pumpin’

You asked. We listened. Now easier to pump and includes a clip to prevent spills during travel.

Get a Grip

We moved from curved glass to recyclable plastic so it’s easier to hold without slipping.

 

 Redesigned Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil

SQUALANE + VITAMIN C ROSE OIL

Squeeze Me

New and improved the dropper that works better, longer.

Clean Wipe Out

We added a wiper in the bottle neck to help keep your application clean. No stray drips.

 

Redesigned Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel

SQUALANE + PEPTIDE EYE GEL

Lights Out

New opaque airless pump protects the formula from exposure to light.

Easy Pumpin’

Less pumps to get to the eye gel to dispense for the first time.

 

Redesigned Squalane + Antioxident Cleansing Oil

SQUALANE + ANTIOXIDANT CLEANSING OIL

Lights Out

New dark green bottle protects the formula from exposure to light.

Just started to use the Rose Oil, morning and night. So far, so good. Not crazy about the price but if it works….I will be very happy. Are samples of the Cleansing Oil ever available to test on my very dry Senior complexion? Or the Wipes? Thank you.

I really love the Biosssnce Revitalizing Oil and Nourishing Oil. I was a little on the fence about the pastic bottle but, I love the oils so much, Im not gonna stop the bottle preventing me from buying these oils. I’ll leave a review after I’ve received my oils. Thnx Biossance..

I am so incredibly disappointed that you have switched to plastic! Plastic is taking over our oceans, or landfills and our planet. It is not a clean renewable resource. It also leeches into our products. You advertise yourself as being pure and “Mother Earth Approved” but plastic is the WORST thing you could have changed to!! You are exploiting the earth to put your natural product into a synthetic toxic material! Not happy about this change at all, and I doubt Mother Earth is either.

How about you sell refills in plastic bags/containers to fill our beautiful glass bottles? This cuts down on plastic, and the time the product spend in the icky toxic plastic.

Also, you have changed the make-up of the Rose Oil. I LOVED the Nourisher, but I have a sensitivity to Vitamin C (my body over-absorbs it), and have you increased the price?

Finally, when are you coming to Canada?

I really love your products but I am also disappointed that you moved away from the glass bottles. I have concerns about plastic components migrating in the product that I put on my face and body. I wish you could reverse that decision. I would rather a little less product and more safety which is the reason why I chose your products in the first place…

I love all of your products. I did not see the face wipes. Did you discontinue the face wipes? They were the best.

I tried the sample and was just coming to purchase the full size… but I try to use as little plastic (especially virgin plastic) as possible and I’m really disappointed with the change from glass to plastic. It just doesn’t make sense to worry about the cardboard box but not a plastic bottle. :(

How does the product hold up in a plastic container?
Plastic has a tendency to migrate into any product contained within, exposing us to chemicals we don’t want on or in our bodies.

The subject in the email stated it was coming to Sephora, but there is no mention of any of that information here.. I am a HUGE fan and would absolutely love it if I could use my Sephora gift card for biossance!!!

Hi Shannon! Check back for the facial wipes in the next couple of months. We’re working on the packaging for that product as well.

I love the new look but did not see the facial wipes. Will you still be carrying the wipes? They are the best and one of the main reasons I continue to order.

Naming this product “The Revitalizer” is an understatement. I have been in the beauty industry for 18+yrs and this product is incomparable. It’s pioneering, weightless formula is highly effective. This is the first product that I can actually say that I’ve used consecutively day and night for 2 weeks and saw real results. Not only does it leave my skin feeling soft and smooth it enhances my makeup application giving me an all day glow!! I wish this brand continued success. XO D

Im so excited about the new packaging. I was going to email you about how hard the curved bottle of Revitalizer was to use (slippery bottle, and needed a square pump head) I was just too hard to hang on to when applying. But now Biossance fixed everything and is giving use twice as much product! I can use more! I love all the products, they have transformed my skin. The Revitalizer has cured my winter alligator skin. I’ve tried so many products, that haven’t worked. This is the only product that honestly works. Thank you for taking care of us and keeping us healthy with non-toxic products. Your fan for life, Sheryl V.
