Bamboo Cap

We have developed a bamboo cap that seals the bottle to ensures not only the  longevity of the nail polish but also replaces a single use only plastic cap.

 

Our bamboo cap is decomposable and highly sustainable due to the following facts;

  • Bamboo is a grass

  • Bamboo absorbs five times the amount of carbon dioxide as trees

  • Bamboo self regenerates in 3-4 months

  • Bamboo contains natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties

  • Bamboo produces 35% more oxygen than trees

Sustainable Production

  • All of our nail polishes and treatments are produced with a platinum 2020 Ecovadis Sustainability rating.

  • Removal of all plastic inner and outer production packaging.

  • Removal of all excess packaging.

  • Limited level of VOC emissions and optimized extraction lowering the impact on the environment.

  • 97% of hazardous raw materials, 83% of the total waste are recycled, and 100% of industrial wastewaters are treated.

  • A waste management policy that promotes reusable tanks and drums and recycling of solvents for cleaning operations.

Recycle and Reuse

In Switzerland, we are testing our recycle and reuse program. This program allows for a circular economy with the materials used. The program works by returning the used nail polish bottles and bamboo caps to us. We clean, sterilise and reuse the materials. Anything that is beyond use is processed through our recycling management partner.

Circular Economy

You will see this sign on some of our display fixtures but what does it mean? 

 After you have finished using your nail polish bottle you can return the entire bottle back to us and we will:

 (1) Clean using our proprietary cleaning solution

 (2) Wash and sterilise using high temperature washing system

 (3) Reuse the bottle and cap for a circular economy.

 Complete transparency please see below the list on items we reuse:

 *Bamboo cap and post 100% consumer plastic seal - 100% reused

 *Nail polish brushes these are washed and returned to the supplier. To ensure we keep a high level of quality of our nail polish application the brushes need to be of the highest quality.

 *Glass bottles are 100% reused

 * Labels are removed and sent to our recycling partner.

 Any items that are beyond use are sent to our recycling partner apart from bamboo caps which are decompose.

 We are in current discussions with the European Economic Regional Fund to scale the operation so we can clean and wash third party nail polishes for recycling
