The latest trend in beauty industry is not about the mask, anti-aging gel, lip colors any more, now it about saving the earth. Finally, the beautiful products companies regonize that they could do something like the superman. That is to use eco-friendly packaging.
Due to few amount of the plastic which used for beauty care products is recyclable (most of the plastic beauty packaging become useless when the cream/gel/lotion run out) , the beauty packaging occupied almost one-third of yearly landfill waste. And unfortunatly, these wasted plastic could will not decompose untill 1,000 years later.
In 2010, a handful of companies helped make eco-friendly packaging a trend. Therefore, more eco-friendly packaging, like sugar-cane tube packaging, biodegradable caps & tubes packaging apprear.
