Beauty news: Dermalogica’s iconic Daily Microfoliant debuts its new refill

I love all things beauty, but a recent report revealing that 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the global cosmetics industry shows that as an industry, it’s often not that pretty at all.
According to a European Union Green Paper on plastic waste, 80 per cent of plastic polluting the ocean comes from poor waste management on the land. For those of us committed to recycling in order to divert plastic from fragile environments, personal grooming products and everyday cosmetics can pose a real headache as they are often hard to recycle. However, when it comes to helping keep the planet clean, your beauty regime can be a great place to start.
Joining the ranks of beauty brands taking a new approach to sustainability is Dermalogica, who has said that by the end of 2020, 90% of all their packaging will be recyclable or biodegradable. And going forward, all paper and cartons will be FSC certified to be sustainable for forests.
In line with this commitment to sustainability, Dermalogica has released Daily Microfoliant Refill, which is made with 92% less plastic, 95.6% less oil and 95.7% fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to the Daily Microfoliant canister, sifter and cap.

Daily Microfoliant debuted in 2001 as the original iconic powder exfoliant and is still the global brand's best-selling product. Inspired by ancient Japanese rituals, it uses Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes to polish skin to perfection. Delivering a serious glow and paving the way for all products to follow, it’s a staple in almost every beauty editor’s bathroom cabinet I know for a very good reason.
The new Daily Microfoliant Refill contains the same Daily Microfoliant formula and is intended to refill the original reusable Daily Microfoliant canister; and comes in a 74g recyclable pouch for RRP $99. Even the pouch is made from Recycle Ready HDPE and can be disposed of in your recycling bin, for yet another nod to the longevity of our precious planet.
Dermalogica is available at authorised Dermalogica Skin Centres, department stores, Life Pharmacies and online.
