Melvita Floral Waters
We've written about these before. (They were called 'Extraordinary Waters', but that name seems to have been dropped.) Models and make-up artists love them. And even though we're not generally fans of toners, so do we. (Especially the Orange Blossom Floral Water, which smells like heaven - or rather, how we hope heaven smells.)
But we're mentioning them again because French organic brand Melvita has succeeded in repackaging these toners in 100% 'post-consumer waste' recycled (as well as 100% recyclable) bottles, made entirely from bottles recycled by their own customers. Of course, that makes for savings on petroleum, energy - and a reduced impact on the planet. (For instance, the old glass bottles weighed 210 g each. These new bottles weigh just 16 g, so that's a vast improvement.)
Wish every company was making strides in this direction. When it comes to beauty packaging, less really is more.
NB Though the toners are available in the US, the new packaging hasn't flowed through to the States yet. Sorry, US readers.
