PLANET-FRIENDLY PACKAGING 101

There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes at Biossance when it comes to the packaging of your favorite clean skincare products. Our approach has a planet-first focus, and we turn to renewable Brazilian sugarcane as a foundation of our end-to-end packaging lifecycle. Read on to learn more about how we make industry-leading, sustainable packaging and how sugarcane plays a huge role. 

SHOP BIOSSANCE, FUND REFORESTATION 

Every time you order from Biossance, we plant trees and fund reforestation efforts to offset our carbon footprint. We’re thrilled to save 22 tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere each year from these efforts. We’ve also reduced excess shipping materials and have made recyclability a top outer-packaging priority. 

Recyclable, paperless packaging made from sugarcane

SUGARCANE = ZERO CARBON FOOTPRINT, RECYCLABLE PACKAGING 

We turn to our trusty MVP (most valuable plant) Brazilian sugarcane to create sugarcane plastic for our products, which leaves zero footprint. We also transform sugarcane waste into sugarcane paper outer packaging, which is fully recyclable. There are no plastic windows or metallic inks in our outer packaging to ensure recyclability, and our outer cartons are tree-free. We’re thrilled to have saved 5,000+ trees by using our sugarcane boxes and look forward to continuing to lead the industry.

My industry experience includes years as a beauty editor and leading content for a wide range of skincare and makeup brands. Those experiences led me to Biossance—I was introduced to the brand on an editor press trip in 2017 and instantly fell in love. I toured the labs, created my own 100% Squalane with essential oils, and noticed a dramatic difference in my skin by introducing clean products (especially the Vitamin C Rose Oil) to my regimen. I’m excited to be on this journey with Biossance and be at the forefront of clean beauty innovation.
