Our commitment to our consumers and the planet

We are committed to empowering people to change the story of their skin while working to minimize our environmental impact and help create a more inclusive world.

This is just the start of our journey.

Environmental Impact

Continue to:

  • Reduce packaging waste
  • Increase recyclability
  • Responsibly source packaging

We Started Our Journey To Reduce Waste And Recycle Our Packaging

Our Progress So Far:

  • Launched new, sustainably sourced cartons.
  • Converted to recyclable shipping boxes on all orders from neostrata.com
  • Launched a recycling program with TerraCycle® to ensure that the applicable recycling parts of our packages can be recycled.

2023 and Beyond

We are continually assessing how to improve our packaging materials and our impact on the environment.

  • We will launch our first Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic packaging in 2023.
  • We are removing, where possible, virgin plastic when possible and investigating other solutions.
  • Launching our new applicable products in PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) or recyclable packaging.
  • We are continuously increasing the PCR level in our new applicable product packaging, aiming to reach minimum 30% PCR by 2025.
  • In partnership with our suppliers, investigating the development and roll out of new, metal-free pumps.

You might notice changes to some of our packaging as we conduct this recyclability makeover. Please know that these small steps will contribute to a more sustainable future.

Start with a Small Step​,
Recycle Today for a Better Tomorrow

We proudly partner with TerraCycle® to offer solutions for some of our packages that are not always recyclable in the different municipal recycling programs!*

Plus, if you choose to participate in the TerraCycle program, you can make a bigger difference by earning TerraCycle® points (100 points for every pound of waste you recycle with them), which can be used to support various non-profit organizations.
