Do you see what I see?
It’s CHANEL’s REFILLABLE jar of cream; and this is the first time I’m seeing a skincare product that is so easily refillable!

In Nº1 de CHANEL, they’ve taken a couple of steps to reduce their environmental footprint – actions that have been in the making since 2018.

Aside from the cream jar being refillable, they’ve also:

  • Reduced the weight of the jars and bottles (jars are now ½ their usual weight)
  • Limited the use of single-use plastics like cellophane
  • Removed paper leaflets
  • Redesigned sachets and tubes of samples to be more ecological

Check out their their powder-to-foam cleanser below. The elimination of water means a lower carbon footprint from formulation, production, to transportation compared to traditional cleansers. This also makes it travel-friendly!

Sustainable initiatives aside, this range is fascinating for it’s effect on cellular ageing, and this is where I got pretty geeky when I was first introduced to the product! In short, the red camellia extract has an incredible effect on slowing down senescence. This is the process where cells lose their ability to divide and thrive aka ageing. Ideal for y’all in my age range where we need slightly more than just hydration, but don’t need anything too intensely anti-ageing!
