Bio based tubes

26 September 2022 - Skincare

Less waste please! You have probably already seen them in our webshop, the new LOOkX Bio based tubes! We always try to contribute to a more sustainable society and that includes our packaging… because way too much plastic is being thrown away.

Renewed packaging

We looked for an alternative to regular plastic packaging, and we found the perfect one! The new LOOkX tubes are made of 100% bio-based material. This is not possible for the cap yet, but we expect to achieve this in a few months.

Currently we have several products in a bio-based tube, but we strive to have more in the future:

Smart 4-in-1 protection primer 30 ml

This award winning protection primer has a mattifying and pore refining effect, to make sure your makeup look stays put for at least 12 hours. And as if that wasn’t enough, your skin is protected in four ways: against blue light, infrared, skin ageing and pollution.

Skin multitasker 30 ml

This product is your true superhere if you want to support your skin in several ways. It hydrates, calms and sooths, repairs, and even lifts and firms thanks to the added andti-ageing ingredients. With couperose skin it reduces redness, with hyperpigmentation it evens out the complexion, after a peeling it neutralizes the skin, and it’s an anti-ageing boost.

Bio based plastic has two major advantages over conventional plastic:

  1. For the main ingredient of conventional plastic, ethanol, you need petroleum. Petroleum is a resource that will eventually run out. We looked for an alternative and found it in Rio Grande do Sul, in the southern region of Brazil. Far away from the rainforest. This plastic has exactly the same properties as our conventional plastic. The difference: ethanol has been replaced by the residual product of sugar cane. This is a natural source that can be replanted without the food industry losing any sugar. 
  2. Bio-based plastic stores CO2 in the production process. The bio-based plastic that we found in Brazil comes from sugar cane, so it absorbs a lot of CO2. Our bio-based plastic absorbs 2.500kg+ CO2 with the production of 1.000kg of plastic and conventional plastic emits 2.100kg of CO2 during the production of 1.000kg of plastic. That’s a very big difference!

To give you an idea:

By using 200.000 tons of bio-based plastic instead of conventional plastic, we avoid CO2 emissions comparable to the annual emissions of more than 1.000.000 cars!

The bio-based plastic that we use at LOOkX is 100% recyclable and, when the tube is empty, you can throw it away in the plastic waste bin.
