What’s in your packaging

Posted on September 11, 2016

At MUSQ we care about our planet, and we care about your skin. Choosing products that are good for your skin and for our planet should be a given, not a luxury. We believe that making small changes can make a big difference. This is why we encourage you to choose consciously, and do the best you can for your own health and well being, as well as the world around you.

We choose not to individually box each product at MUSQ as we are trying to use as little packaging as possible and add as little waste to landfill as we can.

We have beautiful new cardboard MUSQ boxes for you to reuse or recycle as you choose. Our solid, but lightweight, boxes keep your product safe and prevent them from being damaged during transit.

To keep your products safe within our recyclable boxes, we use Bio-Fill, a packaging product that is 100% biodegradable, compostable, and water soluble without leaving any harmful residue, meaning that it will not pollute ground water. It is also lightweight, resilient and reusable. Each piece is made from a starch mixture here in Australia.

The bottles that we use are PET bottles and are BPA Free. PET stands for Polyethylene terephthalate and is a plastic resin and a form of polyester, making our bottles safe and recyclable. BPA stands for bisphenol A and is thought to disrupt oestrogen metabolism in the body, so our bottles have none of that. Globally PET bottles are recognised as a safe, recyclable packaging material. The benefits of this material are its strength, thermo-stability and transparency. It is also inexpensive, lightweight, resealable, shatter-resistant, 100% recyclable and can save up to 30% transport resources due to weight and volume reductions. The PET material is the most recycled plastic material. Recycling one ton of PET containers saves 7.4 cubic yards of landfill space.

At Musq we want to keep your skin healthy with products that are natural, ethical and clean. Please always recycle your packaging where you can and together we will help change the world!
