Sustainability

The makeup industry has a long way to go to achieve true sustainability. At Neen we are committed to moving the industry forward with packaging and product concepts that advance sustainability. In our design process, we don’t start with design and then try think of a sustainability angle, we approach design with sustainability top of mind.

As we develop our products we think about how we can incorporate the three pillars of sustainability, “reduce, reuse, and recycle.” At the same time, we want you to be part of a more sustainable makeup journey and we know that compromising on the quality of your experience is itself not sustainable, and just leaves you with the same old unsustainable choices. Here are some of the things we are doing with our current range of products:

Reduce

Our monthly subscription card allows you to try new products and new looks, without having to buy products that aren’t quite right and ultimately end up in a landfill.


We created the first-ever reusable silicone compact, made from sand and oxygen, which doesn’t leach microparticles into the ocean.


When we do, unfortunately, need to use plastic we limit it as much as we can.Our clamshells are made from recycled PET and can go right back inthe recycling bin. The bubble bag it’s wrapped in comes from partially recycled plastic and is recyclable.


We don’t use big boxes to send small items; we use paper mailer bags. Most of our products are produced locally and we offset the carbon footprint from our shipping.

Reuse

Most of our products can be popped out of their compact and replaced with just a product refill. Your compact has a long life span. It’s durable and can be easily washed by hand or in the dishwasher for extended use.

Recycle

Our cards are made with Forest Stewardship Council-certified paper and are fully recyclable after removing the swatches.


Our compacts don’t have metal hinges and mirrors as mixing these materials prevents recycling. Once you’re done with a compact, you can always send it back to us, and we’ll recycle it. Contact support@weareneen.com for details.

Consciously Formulated

"Consciously formulated" means that our products are formulated with non-harmful ingredients.


“Clean” standards are unclear and inconsistent in our industry. There are many different guidelines, which can be misleading and is often just marketing.


So instead of just slapping a particular “clean” stamp on our products, we focus on each of our ingredients and exclude any that we believe could potentially be harmful.
