Practicing Sustainability .

Sustainability brings the meaning of getting our needs done without having to compromise future generations from meeting their needs.

It is to our awareness that saving our environment takes a lot effort and it does not happen overnight. However, it does not mean we should not do it at all. All it takes is a little bit of change. 

We at Dermaskinshop felt the need to contribute a little hand into saving our environment. Therefore, there are changes that has been done to support our statement. 



1. Changing of Packing Box 

A box is not something a lot would consider to change as they are mostly the same. However, there are tiny tweaks that can be done! As you are able to see, our packaging before was a pink box with a stamp of our logo at the front. This packaging takes a lot more of colour to coat around the box which can be a small waste which can be eliminated easily. 

Our new packaging (as picture above), is a normal but sturdy brown box which can secure the packaging as safely as our previous packaging. The box is secured with a sticker to act as an extra safety measure, with all the same information being stamped on the old box making it a 2-in-1 purpose ; securing and sharing information. This way, the sticker will only be used when needed and wasting will be reduced. 


2. No More Plastic Wrap

It is always the smallest changes that make the biggest impact. A swap from plastic to paper is one of the ways to go. Plastics take long years to decompose compared to paper which is the reason of the change and closing on the never ending loop of wasting. 

The paper that we are now using is a wrapping paper called Geami Wrap. The Geami Eco Friendly Packaging System directly changed a specially patented die-cut wrapping paper which is combined with tissue paper into not only an up-to-date, but an effective protective packaging as well. Some of you might question its' ability of protection, but, fret not, because the die-cut paper will transform to a 3D honeycomb structure once stretched, converting it into a unique wrapping material. The honeycomb can hold and protect products as same as the bubble wrap. 



Two changes is not much but we believe that it is a good start. We are constantly looking for nifty ways to shift our company by empowering people and the planet. We imagine that this little peep we acknowledged and put action towards, will grow into something big in the future.
