How to recycle:
Separate the components before disposal
. Clean them carefully and dispose the empty tubes in plastic recycling bins.

The Jar:
By using jars that are made of GL70 clear glass, we are able to fully recycle our jars. We are proud to say that we use also imperfect jars in order to reduce 80% of the melting of iscared jars and therefore reducing energy consumption significatly. 

How to recycle:
Remove caps before recycling. Rinse the jars well before putting them in the recycling bin.

The Cap:

The Gentle Face Scrub caps are wooden coated. The caps used for our glass jars are made of  PP 05 plastic which means that it is recyclable.

PP can be recycled, however it has to be checked with local authorities. Remove the cap from the jar and wash it before placing them in the recycling bin.
