How to cut beauty packaging waste
Germaine de Capuccini has taken yet another step in its commitment to caring for our planet by removing cellophane and printed inserts from all of its packaging with immediate effect.
From now on, Germaine de Capuccini’s packaging line no longer includes these wasteful components in a push to reduce the company's use of plastics and move closer to their goal of becoming entirely carbon neutral.
Ingredients will still be included on the outer carton, ensuring that trading standards are met and information previously included on the insert is all available on the Germaine de Capuccini website.
This is just the latest move by the Spanish skincare house, guided by its deep-routed philosophy of social and environmental care.
Since its inception over 50 years ago, the company has been committed to caring for the world around us and those who live in it.
Its commitments include a cruelty-free policy, categorically rejecting animal testing of any kind and the exclusion of microbeads from all products.
As part of the CO2zero project, Germaine de Capuccini is certified as the first professional skincare company committed to compensating and reducing CO2.
Every one of its ingredients are ethically sourced, and since 2013, any palm oil used by the company has been certified as responsibly sourced, bearing the RSPO [Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil] label.
Germaine de Capuccini was also the world’s first skincare company to include braille on its retail packaging, doing so even before the pharmaceutical industry caught on.
And it doesn’t end there. The company continues to pioneer new vegan formulations with the same potency as previous formulations containing animal products.
The company is part of Spanish beauty association STANPA, supporting women with cancer, and continues to support ethical sourcing around the world.
