WHAT IS BLUE BEAUTY

Blue Beauty is a sustainable beauty movement in an effort to reduce the negative impacts of chemicals and plastic on ocean life. It's about cleaning up our oceans by using reef and ocean-safe ingredients, avoiding harmful chemicals to our ocean life and the environment, adopting a zero-waste packaging policy, avoiding plastic in packaging entirely, and offering refillable and reusable options.

BLUE BEAUTY VS. GREEN BEAUTY?

Customers need to understand Blue Beauty and Green Beauty are fighting for the exact 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, using environmentally friendly ingredients, and choosing recyclable, reusable, and refillable packaging options. You can think of Blue Beauty as a subdivision of Green Beauty that 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 yearly because only 9% of plastic waste is recycled. The beauty industry is a significant contributor to that, and a lot of it has to do with the excess use of plastic in packaging.

When we wash our bodies daily, 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; some of them make their way to marine environments, and these ingredients cannot break down in aquatic environments causing aquatic toxicity and 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 practices that help create a safer, cleaner, and healthier place to live.

Save Our Oceans.

The beauty industry has a significant (and frightening) impact on the environment . . . marine environment in particular.

We have created plant-based alternatives with marine-derived ingredients, multi-use products, and recycled, recyclable and reusable packaging, all to work towards a bluer future.

Founder Jill Turnbull grew up in eco-conscious Australia, where the government issues egg timers to households to limit their water usage. “Because of this experience, I made it my mission to minimize water waste through product innovation,” Turnbull tells us. For example, the brand’s hair care line absorbs quickly into hair without the build-up of product, making for a faster rinse time.

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 enormous, and it is the most-used ingredient in many products!

All of our haircare reduce 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 these ingredients, which is how some make their way to marine environments.

All our products are formulated with entirely transparent reef-safe ingredients and are 100 % biodegradable.

"Do we really care so little about the earth on which we live that we don't want to protect one of the world's greatest wonders from the consequences of our behaviour?" - Sir David Attenborough.
“Being raised in eco-conscious Australia, my mission has always been simple: to create clean, quality self-care that nourishes your hair, skin, and body naturally. Intertwining beauty and simplicity with exceptional quality, these multi-tasking products are effective while minimizing the effect on the planet,” says Jill. “After more than 45 years in the beauty industry, I realized that many of the products labeled as sustainable were not and that the industry has a tremendously negative impact on our oceans and our earth. The line I’ve developed is not only better for the earth, but for the people who use it.”

Responsibly & Ethically Sourced.

All of our products are cruelty-free, and we're working with the Humane Society of the United States to end animal testing for cosmetics.

We are Leaping Bunny Certified.

Our products are produced locally in the USA.

Each time you make a purchase with us, you make a direct contribution to The Great Barrier Reef Foundation.

“The idea that perhaps we should be looking at these mentors, these biological elders that have figured out how to create a sustainable world - So rather than inventing it from scratch why don’t we take our cues from them, these are earth savvy adaptations - that the best ideas might not be ours, but have already been invented.” - Janine Benyus, Co-founder, Biomimicry Institute

Our Packaging.

Our products are produced and packaged to coexist harmoniously with our pledge to sustainable beauty and are BPA-free, recycled, recyclable, and reusable after use.

Each bottle, jar, and tube is made of a most recyclable form of plastic PET, designed to last for up to 2 years, allowing for multiple refills.

As we know, glass is not safe to be used in the shower, so that's why we offer resilient packaging and encourage refilling it once empty.

We work hard to ensure these materials are directly tied to upcycling efforts to reduce plastic waste. We skipped out on outer cardboard boxes; every piece of printed material, including the box your products arrive in, is produced from recycled materials.
