Instructions

Are these cosmetics naturally or synthetically derived ? If you know that they are 100% natural, it is possible that they could be composted. If you have any doubts or they are synthetic, then they are landfill, to be placed in the grey cart.

Alternatives

Cosmetics with all natural, plant-based, and chemical free ingredients can be purchased. These may also have environmentally-friendly packaging, which would add to their ecological value.

Facts

Synthetic ingredients in some cosmetic products may, over the long term, be harmful to your skin, your nails, your eyes, or your hair. If you can not even pronounce the names of the materials in the ingredients list, this may suggest that they should be avoided.
