Our Commitment to Sustainable Skincare

Our Commitment to Sustainable Skincare

Here at Makeup Cartel, we always want to be part of the solution, not the problem. It is no secret that the skincare and cosmetics industries have the potential to be detrimental to the environment, but they don’t  have to be - we’re living proof that it’s possible to be an ethical skincare brand! 

We’ve made a serious commitment to creating eco friendly skincare wherever we can. It is at the heart of everything we do and is something we take really seriously - it’s up there with creating really, really good skincare! 

Our Sustainability Initiatives

All of the plastic in our products is biodegradable and breaks down in 5-10 years, as opposed to the 100s of years it takes your stock standard plastic to break down. Mother Earth doesn’t have time to wait that long, and neither do we! Oh, and to make things even better, our packaging doesn’t leave behind any microplastics. Pretty clever, hey?

As part of being a sustainable skincare brand, we’ve made sure that all of our glass and cardboard packaging is recyclable. That means, once you’ve finished using and loving your esmi products, clean out the glass packaging (and remove any plastic components) and send that beauty straight to recycling. Easy as pie! 

Speaking of glass bottles, did you know you can repurpose them? It’s true! Use them to house a new sapling or as the perfectly sized container for your favourite skincare when travelling. Read more about repurposing your glass bottles here

Our ingredient lists are predominately natural and completely clean, so they don’t contain any nasties that are going to harm the earth. After all, you wouldn’t put anything toxic on your skin, right? Plus, part of creating ethical skincare, means our products are completely cruelty-free, so we absolutely don’t test on animals. 

And just as the icing on the cake, all esmi products are completely vegan, so you won’t see any animal products in our skincare. We love to see it! 


We want our gorgeous esmi customers to enjoy our products for many years to come, which means we need to put our planet first! Creating sustainable skincare that you love using is our mission and we reckon we’ve done a great job of it, if we do say so ourselves!
