Recycled Skincare Jars
Garnier is one of the first mass-market brands to incorporate 40% recycled glass into its skincare jars. Making recycled glass that is as beautiful and transparent as virgin glass is a significant technical breakthrough. This recycled glass, called calcin, comes from mineral water bottles. They are sorted, collected, ground and cleaned using a state-of-the-art process that produces unparalleled esthetic results and quality, as well as reduces the environmental impact of our glass packaging.Melting calcin requires less energy than manufacturing glass from sand and silica, and produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions. Recycled glass also preserves fossil resources.
