REDUCTION OF PLASTIC IN AMPOULE PACKAGING
Use of a corn-based 100% compostable material
ONE GIANT STEP TO LEAVE NO TRACE
One thing that has not changed over 60 years of MartiDerm’s history is our commitment to innovative products and standing firm in our strong values with the goal of improving the environment. We engage in several charity projects, including partnerships with the Red Cross, Cáritas and the Piel Sana Foundation.
MartiDerm’s commitment to preserving the environment is also, rightly, of pivotal importance and all our actions are set out in the Smart Planet roadmap.
NEW SUSTAINABLE PACKS
WE HAVE REDUCED THE PLASTIC USED IN OUR AMPOULE PACKAGING BY 84%
In our quest to become a fully sustainable company, we are very pleased to present the new packaging for our flagship product, our ampoules.
How have we done it?
The bases that support the ampoules are now made from a material sourced from 100% compostable corn. In other words, it breaks down fully to leave no waste and can be used as fertiliser.
We have cut the number of dispensers and the ones that are left are made from 100% recyclable plastic.
We have eliminated superfluous elements like the ampoule base and lid.
In doing so, we have also created more accessible ampoule packaging, enhancing the customer experience.
We are committed to caring for your skin and for the planet. Proof is that we are constantly setting goals to make us a sustainable company, working on 3 aspects:
REDUCTION OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF OUR PRODUCTS
The secondary packaging we use is developed by implementing the LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) methodology and is FSC-certified. Plus, each and every one of our secondary packaging suppliers is locally sourced.
In 2021 we have cut the environmental impact of the materials by over 30% and moved the dial on ecopackaging.
