We’re getting totally tubular, dude

3 min read

“I got my first tube today, Sir”.

Ever since watching the movie Point Break (for those not in the know – a die-hard 90’s surfing flick), Aaron has been dying to use that line from Johnny Utah.

Even though we’re talking about plastic tubes and not surfing, it’s still a dream come true.

3 happy products are now tubed

We’ve been working on this for a while and we are proud to finally have these beautiful tubes ready for you. We decided to go with tubes for our cream-style products because they have so many benefits over other packaging styles.

Plus, our tubes are not the same as most. They’re a bit special!

The Over the Moon Rich Repair Cream, Perfectly Happy Light Anti-Oxidant cream and (very soon) the Happily Ever After Vitamin C Eye Serum will now be packaged in tubes. There are still a couple of eye serums in airless pumps in stock at our warehouse, so don’t be surprised if you see them still for a little bit.

Here are just some of the reasons we’re loving tubes…

  • They’re BPA free
  • They’re 100% recyclable
  • They don’t smash (unlike glass bottles – so less additional plastic bubble wrap is needed for shipping, and safer in the bathroom)
  • The tubes contain an enzyme that helps to break them down if they do end up in landfill*
  • They’re light so less energy is required to ship them = more eco friendly
  • They’re perfect for your handbag and travel
  • Your fingers aren’t dipping into a pot of cream, which keeps your product effectively preserved for longer
  • They speed up the manufacturing process (no more late nights up labelling, hooray!)
  • They’re less expensive than glass bottles and airless pumps
  • You can get every last little bit of precious skin happiness out, so there’s not a drop of wastage
  • They look pretty darn good if we don’t say so ourselves

* These sexy tubes are biodegradable, but it still takes about 100 years. We know 100 years still sounds like a long time, but it’s a massive improvement on never

Talk about good timing

With the Australian Dollar falling, ingredients have become more expensive and some quite considerably (one in particular has more than doubled!). We were absorbing many of the costs but it was getting to the point where we were going to have to look at increasing prices a little.

BUT … tubes have given us the savings we needed to prevent us from raising any prices. Phew!

Years ago, if someone told you to smear oil all over your face, you would have looked at them in horror. But sometime over the past few years, face oils have managed to shrug off their bad rap as pore-clogging, acne-causing “don'ts” to being recognised as an instant way to get fresh, dewy skin.

The cosmetics industry is far from perfect, and (according to us), packaging is its biggest shortcoming. The unfortunate truth though is that there’s no perfect cosmetic packaging out there for skincare products like ours, and regardless of the packaging we use we’re always going to have an impact on the Earth. It’s just up to us to minimise that impact.
