Recycle skin care, hair care, and cosmetic packaging through this program.
TerraCycle® and Garnier® have partnered to create a free recycling program for hair care, skin care, and cosmetic product packaging, as well as a fundraising opportunity for participants.
Participating is completely free and very easy.
Program accepted waste: Hair care packaging such as shampoo caps, conditioner caps, hair gel tubes and caps, hair spray triggers, and hair paste caps.
Skin care packaging such as lip balm tubes and caps, soap dispensers and tubes, body wash caps, lotion dispensers and caps. Cosmetics packaging such as lipstick cases, lip gloss tubes, mascara tubes, eye shadow cases, bronzer cases, foundation packaging, powder cases, eyeliner cases, eyeliner pencils, eye shadow tubes, concealer tubes, concealer sticks, and lip liner pencils.
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover product). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping.
Once collected, the personal care and beauty packaging is separated by polymer type, cleaned, and extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts, product bundles, or a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. To learn more about our points program, click here.
