Why Choose Refillable Makeup?

Each year, the beauty industry contributes to 120 billion units of plastic waste — they are one of the biggest offenders! Refillable Makeup however, is changing the game and providing a path to a greener future. We for one, couldn't be more thrilled!

Did you know that buying refillable makeup can save 70% in greenhouse gas emissions, 65% in energy, and 45% in water use? How amazing is that? It's so much better for your pockets too.

As consumers, it's up to us to take responsibility of being mindful and generating as little waste as possible. That's why were so thankful that brands like Elate Cosmetics, Ere Perez and Eco Minerals exist!

Elate Cosmetics

Elate Cosmetics is a Canadian vegan beauty brand committed to the best vegan ingredients, sustainable products and our beautiful environment with their refillable makeup range. Their packaging mainly consists of glass and bamboo.

We love that you can create your own capsules using their bamboo palettes. Carry your Pressed Eye Colours, Pressed Blush and Pressed Powders with sustainable style. The Capsule Palette has a customisable magnetic backing to allow you to design your powder layout and it's small enough to fit in your bag for on-the-go. How's that for minimal waste?

Elate is all for mindful consumption. They encourage you to replenish or replace the old with the new—not before, and never impulsively! Their recycling program has saved 697,000 plastic packages from landfill. An amazing effort!

Ere Perez

Ere Perez creates innovative makeup and skincare for minimal, ethical and healthy beauty. The live on a less is best philosophy, which is why they create refillable products.

Their Natural Vegan Blush and Bronzers come with refill options. To use, simply replace an insert pan into your existing product and save the planet from extra packaging. We love the Rice Powder Blush in Bondi for a sun-kissed look and the Rice Powder Blush in Tokyo for a pop of colour.

As it currently stands, 23% of Ere Perez packaging can be infinitely recycled, whilst 14% of products are zero waste. This includes the Coco Lip Crayon and Jojoba Eye Pencils.
