2021-05-05

How are beauty companies evolving?

For as long as we know, people have been using cosmetic and skincare products. Ancient Egyptians have been using cosmetic and beauty products in jars and bowls. By the mid of 20th century, people started discovering high-density polyethylene, polycarbonate, and fluorine-treated HDPE. Plastic bottles became more common for use in all beauty brands.

During the early 21st century, people started to realize what effect plastic packaging will bring. The mere cause of global warming and depletion of the ozone layer is the pollution caused by plastic contamination in our oceans if we don't dispose them well.

Researchers say if plastic use in this world doesn't ban, by 2050, plastic content in oceans will finish the fish population, which is quite an alarming situation. 

For this reason, most campaigns and beauty brands have come up with eco-friendly cosmetic packaging. Eco-friendly packaging is not harmful to the environment, and it's also recyclable.

Eco-friendly packaging also uses natural resources rather than artificial and harmful ones. 


The world is drastically shifting towards better sustainable skincare packaging and eco-friendly cosmetic packaging. Beauty brands are tirelessly working to wipe out the use of plastic packaging for all their products.
