5 simple ways to reduce the environmental impact of your skin care product!
Try, when possible, to order products in packs of 2 or 3. Not only will you save money (shipping fees + a boOnus of 4 or 9 euros) but you will also reduce the environmental impact of your products by having fewer deliveries.
Why? The experts who carried out an investigation on the environmental impact of oOlution found that shipping had a significant environmental impact on the life cycle of a product.To reduce this impact, it was necessary to reduce the volume of shipments and so we had boxes custom made according to the size of our products. It is also better to ship as many packages as possible at the same time, so we introduced a boOnus: 4 euros for every pack of two products ordered and 9 euros for every pack of 3 products ordered!
If you can pick up your package at a Relay Point (local parcel counter in existing retail businesses such as convenience stores, book stores, supermarkets, dry cleaning outlets or news agents in partnership with Mondial Relay) without using your car, it is better to choose this method. of shipment. If you cannot reach a Relay Point without using your car, it is better to have your package shipped directly to your home address The Mondial Relay delivery to parcel shops is available in Belgium; Germany, Luxembourg, UK, Spain, Austria, Italy and Portugal.
Why? During the analysis of the environmental impacts of all the products throughout their life cycle, our eco-conception experts took into account shipment. While studying the different possibilities and the different types of transportation, we were able to determine the shipment type that least impacts the environment according to different situations.
Whether it's with soap or gel, it's better to clean your face with cold water. It stimulates blood micro-circulation for a nice complexion and it saves energy, not needing to heat water
Why? Heating water while you wash your face causes high energy use during the lifetime of your skincare product.

Try to avoid using cotton pads or disposable wipes. Instead, try reusable, washable wipes made of plants (organic cotton, linen, hemp, bamboo, eucalyptus..)
Why? Cotton pads are not the best for your skin, especially if it's sensitive. Furthermore, making conventional cotton (non organic) is the process that consumes the most pesticides in the world. The less we waste, the better for our world-wide biodiversity.

Why? Contrary to almost all existent bottle pumps, oO's skincare bottles do not have a metal spring so they are really 100% recyclable. With a bottle pump made of 100% recyclable plastic and a well established recycling system, there are no excuses!
