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.

I love biossance so much! Good job on the new packaging! When is the gel moisturizer coming out? I see it in pictures and I am so excited about that!

I am assuming there is no animal testing?

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. :(

I hope you’re planning to bring back the masks. ☹️

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.

Will you ever have a sample of the SQUALANE + PEPTIDE EYE GEL? I would love to try it.

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.

Argan, jojoba, coconut, tea tree, almond or avocado. In the quest for silky hair/glowing skin/moisturized cuticles/a multi-tasking miracle, there are almost too many oils to choose from; each one touting a plethora of beautifying benefits. But all oils are not created equal.

It’s International Women’s Day—a day to celebrate all of the history-changing social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women; a day to be bold and, in the words of Maya Angelou, proudly declare, “I am a Woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal Woman, that’s me.”

Did you know our 100% Squalane Oil is made of just one single ingredient, squalane? It's a common cosmetic emollient found in a lot of beauty products, so mixing it with makeup actually makes a lot of sense. Let me break down some of the ways we use it, and why.
