Thanks to an ever-increasing awareness around sustainability, we’re all constantly striving to up our game when it comes to eco-friendly beauty. If you’re not ready to go plastic-free just yet, there are still ways that you can help to reduce plastic. Here’s everything you need to know about refillable beauty products.
Why Refillable Beauty Products Matter
I won’t bore you all with endless statistics, so I’ll just say this: 40% of landfill waste is created by packaging from the beauty industry.
The beauty industry creates 40% of landfill waste.
That’s a really significant number and we can all help to decrease it. Next time you go to throw away your finished beauty product, see if it can either be recycled or refilled. It will not only help the environment, but it will save you money too (refills tend to be at least a couple of pounds cheaper).
With that in mind, here are some of the best refillable beauty products out there…
The Best Refillable Beauty Products
1. MAC Cosmetics
When it comes to refillable makeup, MAC are at the top of their game.
The iconic brand sells a range of MAC Pro palettes for blush and powders or eyeshadow and concealers that are entirely refillable. Opt for a single, double, 4, 6, 9 or 15 insert palette, then fill it with your shades of choice.
When one of the hues runs out, you won’t need to purchase a whole new palette. You can just buy a single insert. It’s great for the environment (no wasted packaging!) and even better for your purse strings.
