Caring for our customers and our planet
When we set out to create our skincare and grooming products, we always have the needs of our customers in mind.
That means going beyond crafting high-quality products. It means doing our best to reduce our environmental footprint in all areas, including packaging, product waste, water conservation, manufacturing operations, and supply chain.
Because what affects the planet and our society, affects all of us.
Infinitely-recyclable aluminium packaging
When you buy GilletteLabs care products like the Rapid Foaming Shave Gel, the Quick Rinse Shave Foam, or the Fast Absorbing Moisturiser, you know the packaging is going to be made from infinitely recyclable aluminium.
What are the benefits of this?
- Aluminium, unlike other recyclable materials, doesn’t degrade or lose quality each time it’s recycled, so it can be recycled indefinitely.
- This reduces waste and the need to produce and mine for new aluminium.
- Which translates into less energy expenditure across our supply chain and production pipeline.
Our cart packs — for GilletteLabs Razor Blade Refills — and sliding box packages are both wholly recyclable. And so is the packaging sleeve of our convenient travel case for GilletteLabs razors, for when you’re on the go.
All come FSC-certified, ensuring that responsible and sustainable forestry standards are behind our production and forest management practices.
Recycling your razors
In 2019, we teamed up with TerraCycle to launch the world’s first national razor recycling program in the United States — and we’re now working to expand it to more locations around the world.
As part of this program, consumers can return all brands of blades, razors, and plastic packaging for repurposing. Plus, when you’re ready to dispose of the blades you’re using with your GilletteLabs with Exfoliating Bar or GilletteLabs Heated Razor, you can even send it back to us.
