The use of our refills limit the product's impact. Thanks to our airless pump (for the Alter-Care Serum & Restore Cream), you can use the product until the very last drop. The glass vessel and the pump kit are meant to be kept with you as long as possible.
We have minimised the use of virgin oil-based materials, instead prioritising those which are responsible such as the use recycled social plastic®️ from Plastic Bank for our pump kit (Alter-Care Serum & Restore Cream).
We have made our packaging as easy to recycle as possible. When you come to the end of your cleanser, serum or cream, we encourage you to purchase STELLA skincare refills, rather than a new complete product. Check your local recycling guidelines for more information or restrictions.
