When it comes to skincare, ingredients are only one part of the equation.
Packaging is another crucial aspect, and one that often gets overlooked. At VETTED Dermlab, we have a commitment to quality and sustainability and optimizing every aspect of the skincare experience, which is why we've chosen to use glass packaging for our products.
Sustainable and Eco-Friendly
At VETTED Dermlab, we are committed to making environmentally-conscious choices. Glass packaging is a sustainable option because it is made from natural materials and is infinitely recyclable. Unlike plastic, which can take hundreds of years to decompose and releases harmful chemicals during the process, glass can be recycled repeatedly without losing its quality or purity. By choosing glass packaging, we are helping to reduce the plastic waste that threatens our planet's health.
BPA-Free and Phthalate-Free
Bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates are chemicals commonly found in plastics that can leach into products and have been linked to various health concerns. By using glass packaging, we can confidently say that our products are free of these harmful chemicals. This aligns with our commitment to providing safe and effective skincare solutions for our customers.
Preserving Product Quality
One of the key advantages of glass packaging is its ability to preserve the quality of the product inside. Glass is a nonporous material, which means it doesn't interact with or absorb any of the product ingredients. This ensures that the potency and efficacy of our products remain intact, allowing you to enjoy the full benefits of our carefully formulated skincare solutions.
