Smart choices – we’ve made them since day one. From the moment we launched our very first product, our goal was quality and effectiveness above all else. And we realized that this goal went beyond using scientifically advanced ingredients – we needed to choose eco-friendly packaging that helped maintain and enhance product performance as well.
It turns out that we were way ahead of the curve. From our recyclable skin care packaging to earth-friendly ink and paper, Bioelements packaging helps deliver optimum product performance while positively impacting the earth. And just as our cosmetic scientists continue to seek out the latest high-tech ingredients for our formulas, we will also continue to evolve with the latest responsible packaging advancements.
Glass Skin Care Packaging
Not only does glass help maintain the integrity of our products, but it is also 100% recyclable.Why Glass?
- Glass is 100% recyclable.
- It’s one of the most recoverable products, with a vast majority being recycled and made into new glass jars.
- Glass helps ensure freshness and product performance.
- It is nonporous and impermeable, plus, it will not deteriorate, so the product inside retains its strength.
- Recycling glass has less impact on the environment, and conserves natural resources.
- It saves energy, creates no waste, and lessens greenhouse gasses.
- Glass packaging is protective and tamper-resistant.
- It’s impermeable, and helps safeguard against moisture and oxygen invasion – which can destroy a product.
- Glass is non-toxic and approved by the FDA.
- It’s made from plentiful, naturally occurring minerals like sand and limestone, and is one of the safest packaging materials.
Did you know?
Over 80% of Bioelements products are packaged in eco-friendly glass. The other 20% are packaged in materials that are necessary for specific product performance and stability.
Our products are paraben-free, and we never use artificial colorants or synthetic frangrances in our formulas. Bioelements products are also never tested on animals.
Vegetable / Soy-based ink
In our efforts to maintain a high standard of environmentally responsible printing, Bioelements box packaging and support materials are printed with vegetable/soy-based inks.
These special inks are an environmentally friendly, and safe approach to printing that takes only a small amount of energy to make. In comparison to petroleum-based inks, vegetable/soy-based release low VOCs (volatile organic compounds) into the air. And since they are derived from nature, they are a completely renewable resource.
Bioelements chooses to work with vendors that are FSC-accredited for all packaging needs. The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an international organization committed to finding solutions that promote responsible forestry practices. In order to receive this top accreditation, a company must meet the highest criteria of sustainable consumption, including proving that they use responsible tactics in choosing trees, and employing proper storage and handling practices. It’s just another way we dedicate ourselves to conservational practices.Did you know?Paper products take up a whopping 40% of the space in landfills. Bioelements uses packaging paper that is 100% recyclable.
