We take sustainability seriously. It’s one of our 5 Eco-Values!
Juice Beauty, as the OG “Original Green” of Clean Beauty, has been cleaning up the Beauty Space since 2005. We take our commitment to protecting the environment seriously, which is why we are continuing our sustainability efforts and taking a stand to help clean up our oceans by the Ocean Waste Plastic concept.
The majority, up to 95%, of plastic packaging is only used once¹ and at least 8 million tons of plastics leak into the ocean each year – which is equivalent to dumping the contents of one garbage truck into the ocean per minute.² By 2050 experts estimate there will be more plastic than fish by weight in the oceans.³
Using post-consumer (land) recycled plastic combined with the Ocean Waste Plastic concept instead of petroleum-based virgin plastic, is one step in the right direction of reducing waste in our environment and helping to lead the way in cleaning up the beauty industry.
We are committed to protecting your health, the health of animals and the environment. We are proud of our latest product release, STEM CELLULAR™ Anti-Wrinkle Retinol Overnight Serum, not only for the amazing planet & health saving organic ingredients and powerful retinols on the inside, but for the 100% sustainable packaging.
What is Ocean Waste Plastic?
Ocean Waste Plastic (is a concept brought to life to clean our oceans and minimize the amount of virgin plastic brought into the world by replacing virgin plastic with PCR and at the same time removing plastic from the ocean and rivers 1:1. Ocean Waste Plastic is plastic waste, found floating in the ocean by local fishermen in Jakarta, Indonesia. This waste is collected, sorted and recycled so it can be reused to make new and sustainable packaging, and this allows us to have a direct effect on reducing the global use of virgin plastic.
We use Ocean Waste Plastic in our STEM CELLULAR™ Anti-Wrinkle Retinol Overnight Serum and we will be moving every full-size bestselling plastic bottle product, one by one, to Recycled Plastic collected from land and/or recycled Ocean Waste Plastic.
Cleaning up the oceans and the earth is a huge undertaking, and at Juice Beauty we are committed to doing all that we can to be sustainable and protect the environment. Learn more here:
