One Hit Wonder – Intensive hand & nail cream
In 2018, Zero Waste Week reported that the cosmetics industry produced 120 billion packaging units per year – the majority of which end up in landfill.
“One Hit Wonder” has been designed with this in mind – an intensive hand and nail cream, in the form of solid single use pastilles. The pastilles are solid at room temperature but melt into the skin to leave it feeling thoroughly nourished.
The advantage of a solid pastille means that the product can be packed into kraft paper boxes. These are easily and readily re-cycled, biodegradable and lightweight to transport.
Furthermore, the pastille size is designed to provide the perfect dose for one application. Thus eliminating the problem of over dispensing, which often occurs with liquid products. This combined with the fact that no product will become trapped in the packaging, another common problem with liquids, means that no product is wasted.
