SKIN’s Role to Support the Protection of our Natural Environment

SKIN only uses recycled materials (reusing paper packaging received with orders from SKIN's ingredients supplier) for packaging online orders. All product containers are pharmaceutical-grade and 100% recyclable.  We encourage customers to wash and reuse the aluminium tins and amber/blue glass jars.  All product containers are sourced from SKIN's ingredients supplier in county Wicklow.  Product paper labels are produced in Dublin. SKIN's gift bags are produced from recycled paper, sourced from Irish family business Little and McClean.
