Celebrating Earth Day with These Eco-Friendly Beauty Products

Frownies is proud to be a company aligned with the environmental awareness movement. 

Sadly, the beauty industry is a major contributor to our planet’s pollution problem. Packaging and shipping creates excessive waste. In addition, unsold, returned, and expired products contribute to the waste problem.

In contrast, Frownies is one of the leading environmentally conscious beauty brands.

Here are some ways that Frownies products stand out from others on the market: 

  • Frownies Facial Patches are recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable.

Frownies Facial Patches are made from weighted paper with a water-activated adhesive making the patches recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable. 

  • Many of Frownies’ other products are also reusable, recyclable, and biodegradable. 

There is little to no waste when using Frownies Under Eye Gels. Frownies Under Eye Gels are unique compared to other eye gels on the market as they are reusable. The eye gel will appear to shrink as it is absorbed directly into the skin over three to five applications. Because they are made from cactus collagen and aloe vera, any remnants of the eye gels are biodegradable and compostable.  

Frownies newest product, the Apple Serum, is packaged in single-dose ampoules to maintain potency without added preservatives. The ampoule packaging is made from biodegradable plant-based packaging, making it environmentally friendly by limiting excessive waste.

  • Frownies’ skincare is all-natural, non-GMO, and organic whenever possible.

Frownies formulations are primarily based on natural ingredients derived from sustainable, renewable sources, Occasionally, Frownies skincare may include select functional synthetic ingredients where warranted to achieve enhanced performance and safety in clean beauty formulations.

Free from synthetic dyes and fragrances, Frownies skincare carries the scents of pure, cold-pressed therapeutic-grade essential oils. These natural sources are better for the environment. 

  • Frownies limit waste through small-batch, in-house production. 

Frownies products are made to order. Frownies is proud to hand-make all their formulas in small batches in their warehouse in Ohio. 

  • Frownies products are vegan and never tested on animals. 

Due to its commitment to sustainability, Frownies skincare is better for you and better for the environment.
