About Waterless Cosmetics
A new formulating trend in cosmetics is waterless, water-free or low water cosmetics. Did you know that water is normally the first ingredient in hair, skin, and cosmetic products? The average bottle of shampoo also contains 80 percent water. This is a lot of water being used and shipped around the world. Now with sustainability as a priority, many companies are looking for innovative products and packing. This resulted in waterless cosmetics. By eliminating water, you are also saving on containers and packaging waste. The reduced packaging also means less fuel or pollution used to ship these products.
A survey by Cosmetics Business found that 57% of responders purchased a waterless product. Most found they would purchase again. Over 90% said they would like to see more innovation and 85% agreed that the waterless sector will become more mainstream in beauty. More and more, we are finding sustainable beauty or cosmetics are here to stay.
