As of late, more brands are prioritising eco-friendly missions by shifting to refillable bottles, jars, and compacts. However, these products are not completely zero waste, but it’s a step in the right direction.

The N°1 De Chanel Revitalising Cream is made out of red camellia extract and oil that works wonders in boosting cellular vitality as well as protecting skin from external aggressors. And the best part? The eye-catching red bottles are green, too – as the cap that includes biocomposite from camellia husks and wood by-products is refillable. Perfect for ageing skin, diminishing wrinkles, and correcting the appearance of pores, this moisturiser will leave your skin glowing and soft.

Tata Harper Water-Lock Moisturizer Refill Pod

Almost all of their products come in glass, which is infinitely recyclable. And to be even more eco-friendly, all of their cartons are made with certified paper from sustainably managed forests and they also use biodegradable soy ink to reduce the toxicity of their cartons. While all of Tata Harper’s products come in glass jars, for the Water-Lock Moisturiser the brand took things a step further with a refillable jar. But, what’s inside is just as good – the gel cream is a lightweight, silicone-free hydrator. The moisturiser is infused with orange peptides, pomegranate spheres, and macro hyaluronic acid that helps prime and smoothen your face while delivering a healthy dose of hydration.
