The last few decades have seen a surge of awareness around the importance of being mindful and conscious of the way we live our lives and the impact that our choices have on the environment. We are increasingly aware of the need to embrace sustainable practices in all areas of our lives, and this includes the way we purchase and use skincare products.
It is possible to make mindful and sustainable choices when shopping for skincare products. Firstly, consider what materials the product is packaged in. Many products are sold in plastic containers that are difficult to recycle, but there are also brands that offer products in reusable and/or recyclable containers, such as glass or even bamboo. PAUME acts on this by providing refillable options for many of our best selling products – travel sized hand sanitizer, at-home pump dispenser, and hand cleanser.
Secondly, think about the ingredients in the products that you are buying. Many skincare products contain harsh chemicals or synthetic fragrances that are potentially toxic for the environment. Choose products that are made from natural and organic ingredients, as these are not only better for the environment, but also for your skin. PAUME’s formula not only emphasizes natural ingredients but we’ve also created a unique blend of essential oils that help nourish your skin and leave a pleasant scent.
Thirdly, think about where the products are coming from. Supporting local businesses can help to reduce your carbon footprint, as the products don’t have to travel long distances to get to you. Local businesses often have higher standards of sustainability, so you can be sure that you’re supporting environmentally friendly practices. PAUME’s retailers are independent community supporters and can be found all across North America.
Finally, look into the company’s sustainability initiatives. Many brands are taking steps to reduce their environmental impact, such as using renewable energy sources and packaging products in more eco-friendly materials. By buying from brands that are committed to sustainability, you can support their efforts and make a difference in the fight against climate change.

Choosing skincare products that are both mindful and sustainable is not always easy, but it is important. By making conscious decisions about the products we buy, we can help to protect the environment and ensure that future generations have access to clean air, clean water, and a healthy planet.
