NO PRODUCT CONTAMINATION
To make sure there is absolutely no compatibility conflict between a product and its packaging, we use the most neutral polymers there are.
ECO-FRIENDLY AND RECYCLABLE
We strive to use eco-friendly recyclable skincare packaging. We only use bottles made of recyclable polymers, even though they are more expensive than non-recyclable ones. All our plastic bottles are class 5PP, easily recyclable at any point.
After a long trial period, we settled on bottles produced by a large German company. They are expensive, but worth it. You would be surprised how many defective bottles are found in some companies’ supplies. Some cheaper manufacturers can have up to 2 or 3 defective bottles out of every 10!
We only have to discard 1 bottle in 10,000 or less, minimising waste.
Airless pump bottles are incredibly efficient. When the pump stops dispersing your Meder Beauty product, be it cream or serum or cleansing mask, there is less than 0.2 ml left of it in your bottle. And if that is not enough, we fill our bottles adding 5% extra product, so in fact with Meder Beauty the math is in your favour.
When you buy 50 ml of product you really get 52.5 ml and you use up 52.3 ml. When the pump stops dispersing your Meder Beauty Science product, there is less than 0.2 ml of it left in the bottle. We fill our bottles with 5% extra, so when you buy 50 ml you get 52.5 ml and you use 52.3 ml. Now, this is the math that I like. In my years of work in beauty industry I got thoroughly fed up with tubes and jars that had to be cut and scraped and sown in half to get sometimes up to 30% of remaining product from the inside!

We strive to use as little secondary packaging as possible. However, putting all relevant information on the packaging can be difficult. Cosmetic legislation gets more restrictive every year. The packaging must by law include all kinds of information: the name of the product and what it is for, the complete list of ingredients, shelf life, instructions for use, barcode, safety warnings (avoid eye area, rinse after use, etc). Even 100 ml bottles don’t have enough surface for all this text. The packaging has to be recognisable and branded too.
This is why we introduced eco-friendly recyclable cardboard boxes a little while ago. We plan to introduce the option of ordering cardboard-free packaging where possible.
