What is Compostable Packaging?

There is nothing more frustrating than ordering a beauty product by mail, only for it to come in multiple layers of packaging and bubble wrap. These days consumers expect beauty brands to be paying more attention to sustainability.

As a beauty entrepreneur starting my own brand, I’ve spent a lot of time searching for sustainable packaging solutions. I was pleasantly surprised to find that some companies are already making biodegradable and compostable packaging. “Biodegradable” and “compostable” are similar in that the materials completely break down, but compostable materials go one step further by providing nutrients for the earth when they breakdown. Compostable materials can be placed in a home compost bin. 

No Issue is a leader in compostable packaging. They make everything you might need to mail packages - bubble wrap, mailers, stickers and even tissue paper. Their compostable mailers are made from corn, so they break down in about 6 months. You just toss them into your compost bin instead of the trash. Their paper is FSC certified, meaning that it comes from responsible forestry. No Issue also uses soy-based ink on printed products, instead of ink derived from petroleum. 

Imaya Beauty is an ecological beauty brand that cares about sustainability. That's why we use compostable packaging products from No Issue. I’m glad to say that many indie beauty brands are making an effort to implement sustainable practices.
