Many of our customers have requested further information regarding our policy toward the environment. We have always been very concious about our approach to minimising our businesses impact on the environment and we published our beliefs and strategies from the beginning on our About Us page. We thought it maybe beneficial if we explained a little further on our blog.
The Dermalogica products that you buy from us arrive in plastic containers and many in cardboard boxes. All of this product packaging is fully recyclable today and should be disposed of with your household recycling as normal.
Packaging and Filler
All of your products are sent in white cardboard boxes which are fully recyclable and the void filler we use to protect your items is a biodegradable filler made from starch. Polystyrene is not biodegradable and cannot be recycled. We do not use plastic bags to send your products.
Some customers have expressed a concern over the size of some of the boxes we use when ordering a small item such as an Eye Cream or Concentrated Booster. There are two reasons for this. Firstly we like to ensure that your products reach you in the best condition possible. Secondly we include within each parcel the Dermalogica Product Directory, your Dermalogica Samples and the delivery note. We can completely understand our customers concerns but everything we use is recyclable and we hope you would agree with our reasoning.
Probably the largest impact our business has on the environment is due to the logistics of delivering your products to you. We took a decision early to use Royal Mail. This was due to the fact that Royal Mail already have the complete infrastructure in place. They have vehicles on the road moving post around the country and therefore adding to it can only reduce the card foot print of that journey. We decided that a courier means implementing a dedicated journey by a vehicle to deliver the parcel and that this was not as environmentally friendly.
