Consumer awareness and demand spikes, and the beauty establishment and more well-funded indies start paying attention to these causes and pour their money, science, and design resources into the mix. It has occurred with organics and sustainability, and more recently with refillable.

The concept of refillable products is not new. Still, a sharper focus on the beauty industry’s contribution to the world’s escalating pollution crisis has prompted many brands to reconsider their excessive packaging.

There are numerous design options for refillable mechanisms. The traditional option has been the pinhole technique. There is a tiny hole on the rear of the compact that allows you to take out the compact and replace it with a new refill or an entirely different shade.

The new refilling compact incorporates a screw-on, magnetic, or click-on mechanism to remove or insert the formulation-filled tray. Visit our Refillable Catalogue here.
