Our Packaging

At Melvory, we work really hard to source the most eco-friendly packaging for our products. There is no easy answer when it comes to packaging. We have even contacted multiple manufacturers for biodegradable plastic but unfortunately this material isn’t always compatible with the cream/oil. But not only that, Australia currently does not have the facilities for commercial composting of biodegradable plastic. So unfortunately, biodegradable plastic isn't an option for now.
We have given so much thought when choosing the best packaging for our products. We have to factor in things like:
  • Is the material compatible with the product?
  • Is it safe to use? (We don't want glass smashing on shower floors)
  • Is it expensive? 
  • Can it be re-used and recycled?
  • Is it heavy and will that cost more in freight?
  • Does the design represent our premium products?
Packaging is something that is at the very heart of Melvory and we are constantly re-evaluating and looking for ways in which we can do better than ever before.

Our other efforts in ensuring that we reduce waste as much as possible:
  • Majority of our shipping boxes are collected from offices, cleaned, and reused.
  • Our white packing foam is made from corn starch and can be easily dissolved in water within minutes
  • Our bubble wrap is made from plant fibres and is biodegradable

AIRLESS PUMP BOTTLES

1. Why does my bottle not have a tube?
Some of our most popular products now come in Airless Pump Bottles. You may notice that there is no tube within these bottles, and be wondering how they work!
These bottles have an inbuilt diaphragm at the bottom which pushes the product upwards towards the pump head. This is why you'll see your remaining product moving UP the tube as it's used, instead of emptying downwards. This amazing technology means that there is little to no air within the bottle as the product gets used - this slows down the process of oxidation and will help the natural ingredients inside stay fresher longer.

2. Are they made from real bamboo?
No, they are not. The parts that look like bamboo are actually printed with the design using an eco-friendly technique called water transfer printing.

3. Are these Airless Pump Bottles recyclable?
Yes! Our bottles are made from plastic and all of their parts can be fully recycled.

4. What should I do when I've finished using the product?
Remove the cap and the pump from the body of the product and place all 3 parts into the kerbside recycle bins. Easy as that!

  • Green Tea Cleanser
  • Peach Oil Cleanser
