In a short amount of time, sustainability has gone from being the latest trend to a revolutionary change for industries with the goal to reduce consumption and this has been prominent in the beauty industry. Many cosmetics brands have been working towards creating more sustainable makeup products by using organic and vegan formulas in their products. Not only are brands making lasting changes, but they are also innovating new designs and developments to help reduce waste. As consumers, we can make a difference with how we spend our money and help reduce our environmental impact by choosing refillable cosmetics.
The beauty industry generates millions of pounds due to its consumerism becoming indispensable in our day-to-day life. Many mainstream beauty products that we use daily generate a lot of waste and therefore, are harmful to the environment. Some companies are becoming more aware of the negative impact that the beauty industry has on our planet and have already started to launch reusable or refillable products that allow us to use them more than once. This is where our work as consumers comes in, to take responsibility of being mindful and generating as little waste as possible.
If you aren’t too familiar with refillable cosmetic products, don’t worry. At Wearth we try to use the best products for the environment and inform you of all their benefits. As the article title suggests, refillable products are gaining popularity as they can be used over and over again.
Refillable packaging is a good way to avoid the overproduction of waste, especially plastic. Annually, the global beauty industry produces more than 120 billion single-use packages. That figure may seem overwhelming but one way you can start to help is by committing to using products that put the planet first. Below is some of our favourite products stocked in our refillable makeup range:
What’s better than having a vegan and cruelty-free palette where you get to choose your favourite shades too? Create a palette that will last forever with Nicmac Beauty’s refillable eyeshadow palette This innovative design has a magnetic base so you can simply attach the metal eyeshadow trays and use them over and over again, prolonging its life and reducing waste. Plus, it is also completely recyclable and plastic-free!
You can buy the palette with 6 pre-selected shades from the brand, completely organic and with a variety of tones. The palette also includes a high-quality mirror so you can check your gorgeous face on the go!
A good foundation is a must in every makeup routine, and if it can be refillable and eco-friendly, what else can we ask for? Honeypie Minerals is a vegan makeup brand that promotes refillable cosmetics options. Purchase their standard mineral foundation product just once and then in future you will just have to buy the refill sachets and pour them into the sifter jar. The foundation refills come packaged in paper pouches making them recyclable and you can dispose of it in your compost bin where it will biodegrade.

We definitely need a highlighter to shine and glow wherever we go. With this Nicmac palette, you can choose between six shades that are made in the UK and 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
