FORCE OF NATURE
Paula Cliffin, holistic facialist, certified (and passionate) in Oncology Aesthetics, and Australian distributor of Prologic Skin Care tells us how your skincare choices can save the planet.
Back in 2018, an article in a UK glossy magazine read “Sadly notorious for its negative impact on the environment, the cosmetics industry contributes to pollution and drains natural resources in multiple ways – with our everyday actions as consumers exasperating the problem.” With reports that more than 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the global cosmetics industry, much of which is not recyclable, we are all part of the problem.
Thankfully, there has been a shift to a skin-savvy, eco-conscious consumer and skincare professional in recent years. Ingredients certainly matter, however, considering the environmental impacts and ecological footprint of the whole life cycle of a product line, known as eco-design, is of huge significance as well as clean and green ingredients. With this revolution in consuming comes a new type of marketing, called ‘greenwashing’. According to Wikipedia – greenwashing, or ‘green sheen’, is a form of marketing spin in which green PR (green values) and green marketing are deceptively used to persuade the public that an organisation’s products, aims and policies are environmentally friendly. Greenwashing is on the rise in the skincare industry with many brands’ PR gurus wanting to tap into this new breed of eco-conscious consumer and skincare professional.
So, let’s dive into sustainability. The word sustainability has definitely become a buzzword of late, so what does it actually mean? An ecosystem, a lifestyle, or a community that is sustainable is one which supports itself and its surroundings. Sustainability itself can be defined by three core elements, each of which must be carefully considered in relation to the others:
- Environmental Protection
- Social Development
- Economic Development
In the words of Pete Seegers, ”If it can’t be reduced, reused, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled or composted – then it should be restricted, redesigned or removed from production.” At Prologic Skin Care, we care about the sustainability of our products just as much as we do about their efficacy.
