As you may know, at HelloBody we believe nature is the key to beauty. Our mission as a company? Make the world a better place for all its inhabitants: people, animals, and mother nature. Because of our sustainable ethos, we keep a watchful eye on our contributions to the planet, especially when it comes to our packaging. Back in 2020, we asked ourselves a very important question:
How can we reduce our waste and the impact it makes on the environment?
Packaging: a critical issue
As a manufacturer of beauty products, we are aware of the waste our products produce. We’re also very much aware of our responsibility to reduce that waste and decrease our contributions to environmental pollution. That’s why we made it our goal to channel the new decade energy of 2020 into our sustainability objectives as a company. We have already taken the first steps in laying the foundations of our plan to be as sustainable as possible when it comes to packaging. Here are all the details…
Our first step to sustainability
To drive our sustainability mission, we are re-launching the limited edition of our popular ALOÉ TONIC. Our liquid AHA exfoliator will be available in a new, 100% post-consumer resin (PCR) bottle. ‘What exactly is PCR’ you might ask? PCR plastic is recycled from previously used plastic products, giving the plastic a second life and helping us – and you! – reduce our impact on landfills.
Help us protect the environment and preserve its natural resources!

We also have plans to give our tubing a sustainable makeover as well… just watch this space!
What are the environmental benefits of recycled materials?
Recycling reduces waste as well as CO2 emissions. By reusing old materials, we can cut down our contributions to landfills, and help save the environment from pollution. Plus, using existing materials and giving them another life means new plastics will not be produced, saving up to 75% in CO2 emissions that would have been spent creating a new piece of plastic.
By the way: all HelloBody products are produced in Germany. This way we avoid long transport routes and can further reduce our carbon footprint.
Did you know?
Recyclable does not mean that the material itself is already recycled. Nevertheless, both terms are closely related. Most plastic packaging is recyclable and serves as the basis for packaging made from recycled material. Remember: If we dispose of packaging waste properly, we will give it a second life!
