PLA – Poly Lactic Acid
Our continuous search for environmentally friendly ingredients and renewable materials has led us to use completely biodegradable and compostable packaging, known as PLA.
- Derived from corn sugar, PLA is the alternative to traditional petroleum-based plastics usually used by the cosmetic industry.
- A highly sustainable material, PLA greatly reduces the emission of CO2 in the air. This is the main cause of the greenhouse effect/ global warming.
It is very important that you dispose of your PLA packaging in wet organic household waste and not with plastic recycling products. Our municipalities are not yet familiar with these new substances and may try and recycle it with plastic which will CONTAMINATE the plastic recycling because it will not behave as plastic does. Being plant-based, PLA needs to head to a composting facility, not a recycling facility.
If you are not able to dispose of your PLA packaging, please return it to the salon where you bought it and we will do so for you.
