Sk*p the Plastic, Save our Planet
Sk*p is leading a movement for change

The beauty industry is one of the leading contributors to the global plastic crisis but we intend to change that with your help. Our fully recyclable, shower-friendly paper BeautyCarton™ help to reduce the amount of plastic waste hitting our landfills and waterways—and it’s next life will help build homes and make school supplies—we believe the future is circular.

Did you know that our BeautyCarton™ is made from a renewable resource—paper! and is sourced from FSC sustainably managed forests where trees grow and store carbon. For every tree that is harvested, another is planted. Our packaging uses 95% less plastic and is more lightweight than traditional beauty packaging which means every time you buy one of our products, you are helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Three pillars of sk*p sustainability
At the heart of our mission and everything we do is a passion for the environment. We’re proud to lead a movement to break the beauty industry’s addiction to plastic. But we’re not perfect. We’re focused on harm reduction, not perfection! We promise to strive for continuous improvement as we owe it to our planet to do better through meaningful action, accountability and education. We're excited to continually evolve our sustainability initiatives and be part of the solution for a thriving, more healthy and clean future for all.
environmental stewardship

We help protect eco-habitats on land by supporting sustainably managed forests and reducing plastic pollution. We are also helping to protect and rebuild our ocean’s health. Oceans sequester 5-10 times more CO2 than any other ecosystem on Earth – that’s why we are supporting in their mission to rebuild the kelp forests in Palos Verdes, California. For each sk*p product purchased, we donate to, a nonprofit organization that’s helping to restore and protect blue-carbon coastal ecosystems.

Trust & Transparency

We’re a brand that you can always count on to be honest and open to change, we’re figuring it out as we go and learning every day. As we continue to research and explore better materials, we hope that you will ask questions and send us your ideas, we’re all in this together. Help us be the change we want to see in the world. Sk*p formulas will never include synthetic fragrances, parabens, silicones, phthalates, sulfates, sodium chloride and PEGs or any of the global regulatory list of banned cosmetic ingredients.  

BeautyCarton™ Lifecycle

Fun fact:Paper fibers can be recycled up to 7x before they fully break down

Once you’re done with your sk*p product, it should be recycled—keep the cap on, and don’t flatten the box then leave out for curbside pick-up. Cartons go through a process of re-pulping, enabling the paper fibers to be recovered and reused for such things as furniture, wall linings, and form work for concrete.

It’ll go on to a new life where it can be used to make other essentials like tissue paper, paper towels and even notebooks!
