My Hippie Skin is all packaged in glass...
What is this, 1950?
Nope. But we LOVE the 50's. The reasons we use (and recommend) glass containers for our products are pretty simple. Number One: We LOVE our planet. And we want to see it thrive for generations to come! Glass is FAR more easy to recycle than plastic is, and with much less toxicity, and that's the bottom line. We highly, highly, highly encourage you to recycle your glass jars! We are working on a program for our online consumers to return their jars for a discount on new product, but the logistics are not yet in our favor. (Someday, when we grow up, we want to give you this option!) In the meantime, take a few extra minutes out of your day and find a glass recycling receptacle in your community. You'll feel good about yourself, and that's what we're all about here at Hippie Skin!
Number Two: Glass is better for your face. Now before you go taking us quite literally, we don't mean the glass itself is better for your face, but the product inside the glass is better for your face. Did you know plastics can leach chemicals into your products? All it takes is the right conditions: Compounds that can cause chemical reactions, temperature, and/or time. We don't know about you, but we sure feel better knowing that our precious Hippie Skin hasn't been altered by the environment that cocoons it before it gets to your face!
So, while this does cause the shipping expense to be higher and the nature of Hippie Skin to be a bit more fragile, we hope that you feel, as we do, that it's worth the extra time and money to promote a safer, healthier planet for ourselves and future generations.
Love your Face!
