Save world from makeup plastic waste and show example to other brands to do the same. Our makeup packaging is 100% Biodegradable!

by Sanni Heikkinen in London, England, United Kingdom

ABOUT HEI:
Hei Cosmetics is new makeup brand that is specialised for ecological makeup. What makes us so unique is that our makeup is packed to 100% Biodegradable packaging that contains 0% micro plastics. So basically our makeup can be thrown away straight away to the compost, or burn it or recycle it. It is safe to the oceans, animals and people. No more plastic waste from cosmetics is our mission. We wanna show example to other brands to do the same. If we grow, then we are potential competitor to big brands and they start to think this as well. We want that in the future all brands are using biodegradable packaging.

Hei is at the moment in early state. Our branding, logo designing, package designing etc. is just started. Production is planned to start in 2-4 months.

FACTS ABOUT HEI:
-   HEI= Health & Environment Impact
-   100% Biodegradable
-   0% Microplastics
-   Our makeup packagings global warming potential is smaller than in glass, aluminium, PP plastic, HD-PE plastic, R--PET plastic, PLA plastic
-   Our packaging is made from renewable and sustainable raw materials.
-   Our natural makeup is vegan, cruelty free and does not include micro plastics.
-   Our makeup is made for everyone. That is why it is also Gluten free and Halal.

















WHY WE NEED TO ACT NOW:
-   Plastic is killing more than 1.1 million seabirds and animals every year
-   The average person eats 70,000 micro plastics each year
-   Over the past 50 years, world plastic production has doubled
-   Every minute one garbage truck of plastic is dumbed into our oceans
-   By 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish (by weight)
-   The likelihood of coral becoming diseased increases from 4% to 89% after coming in contact with marine plastic. It also damages the skin of coral, allowing infection. Coral reefs are home to more than 25% of marine life.
