WHAT IS BLUE BEAUTY
Blue Beauty is a sustainable beauty movement in an effort to reduce negative impacts of chemicals and plastic on ocean life. It's about cleaning up our oceans by using reef and ocean safe ingredients, avoiding any chemicals that are harmful to our ocean life and the environment, adopting a zero-waste packaging policy, and/or avoiding the use of plastic in packaging entirely and offering refillable and reusable options.
BLUE BEAUTY VS. GREEN BEAUTY?
It’s important for customers to understand Blue Beauty and Green Beauty are actually fighting for the same cause -- sustainability. Both fight to reduce emissions, prevent pollution and waste, and reduce energy. This can be achieved by adopting more eco-friendly practices through the use of environmentally friendly ingredients and choosing recyclable, reusable and refillable packaging options. You can think of Blue Beauty as a subdivision of Green Beauty where it focuses on our oceans, and in order to save our oceans, it starts with being more sustainable in our practices.
WHY DOES BLUE BEAUTY MATTERS?
Blue Beauty is just as important as any other environmental cause because it’s about protecting our planet. 90M tons of plastic end up in our ocean each year because only 9% of plastic waste is recycled, and the beauty industry is a big contributor to that, and a lot of it has to do with excess use of plastic in packaging.
When we wash our bodies each day, the products we use will all be washed down the drain with the water. Water waste treatment plants do not break down all the ingredients in beauty products and some then make their way to marine environments. Some of these ingredients cannot break down in aquatic environments causing aquatic toxicity, harming marine life and the ecosystem balance.
If we continue with how we are going, we will further impact our planet in a negative way that will ultimately destroy our entire ecosystem. It’s our responsibility to protect our planet by adopting better and safer practices that help to create a safer, cleaner and healthier place to live.
Save Our Oceans.
The beauty industry has a major (and frightening) impact on the environment . . . marine environment in particular.
We have created plant-based alternatives with marine derived ingredients, multi-use products, recycled, recyclable and reusable packaging all to work towards a bluer future.
Minimizing Water Waste.
FACT: 70% of the world is covered by water, yet only 2.5% of it is fresh and only 1% of it is easily accessible for human use. The beauty industry’s demand for water is huge, and in a lot of products, it is the most-used ingredient!
All of our haircare reduces water waste by rinsing out in seconds.
When we shower, the products we use are washed down the drain, however, water waste treatment plants cannot break down all of these ingredients, which is how some make their way to marine environments.
All of our products are formulated with reef-safe ingredients with complete transparency and are 100 % biodegradable.
