Brands are adopting refillable and recyclable packaging, reducing single-use plastics, and sourcing ingredients responsibly. Some companies that can provide more eco-friendly packaging include ABA Packaging Corporation and Paramount Global.
There is a growing interest in skincare products that promote the health of the skin’s microbiome.
Skincare formulas are now using prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics to maintain a healthy skin barrier.
Ultra Chemical offers ingredients that include natural prebiotics to rebalance the skin’s microbiome such as BIOLIN/P and the preBIULIN line.
