Reusable cotton rounds

LastRound is a line of sustainabl­e pads created by Danish eco-entreprene­ur Isabel Aagaard under her brand LastObject. She found that single-use cotton pads consume enormous amounts of water but switching to LastRound can save around 10L per use. LastRound’s reusable rounds are made from 70 per cent wood fibre and 30 per cent organic cotton. They can be washed and reused over and over again.

A drop goes a long way

The power of antioxidan­t pomegranat­e is captured in Weleda’s new Firming Facial Oil, $48.90. It is the hero in this new highperfor­ming facial oil that contains a total of eight nourishing plant oils that work to revitalise skin in a single drop. The fragrance is dreamy and it comes in a glass bottle.

Aleph closes the loop

The packaging of natural make-up brand Aleph has always featured reusable/ recyclable glass containers. Now it’s gone one step further with ‘realeph’: you drop off five washed jars or bottles to a stockist, or send them back to Aleph. Aleph’s industrial sanitiser makes them as clean as new, and they are ready to go back into circulatio­n. alephbeaut­
