3 Reasons You Should Care How Your Skincare is Packaged

This photo shows three different photos of an airless pump to demonstrate skincare packaging.

What’s the number one thing you look for when purchasing skin care products in 2022? If your answer is the product’s ingredients — you’re definitely not alone. While we agree that the ingredients inside of your skincare products should be beneficial for your skin, we encourage you to keep skincare packaging in mind as well. Here are our top three reasons why the way your skincare is packaged should matter to you.

Skincare Packaging Should Minimize Contamination

You could find a skincare product with great ingredients — before realizing the product is contaminated after a few uses. Skincare products that require hand contact heighten the chances of bacterial exposure. This contamination can result in acne, eczema, and contact dermatitis. Dermatologist Melissa Kanchanapoomi Levin says, “When people dip their fingers in the product, they can introduce germs.” 

It’s best to look for skincare products that reduce hand contact, like our Purify + Detox Dead Sea Mud Mask, Renew Overnight Sleeping Facial Mask, and Rejuvenating Caffeine Eye Cream with Ginseng. These products are placed inside minimalist skincare packaging consisting of a small spoon applicator, so you don’t need to dip your fingers into the product. You’re meant to use the small spoon to take the product from the skincare packaging and place it directly onto your face. 

Skincare Packaging Should Keep Your Product Fresh

No one wants the amazing ingredients in their skincare to lose their effectiveness, but that’s what can happen with certain types of packaging. Dermatologist Dr. Erum Ilyas says, “Packaging is important for certain ingredients such as antioxidants, peptides, and retinol/retinoids to prevent accelerated oxidation. Vitamin C, for example, is a relatively unstable ingredient and tends to degrade and oxidize faster when exposed to air and light.”

Doppeltree has many products that have little or no contact with air to keep the ingredients longer-lasting. Our All Day Hydration Rose Gold Facial Mist is a prime example of a product that can be consistently used without oxidation. We also offer single-use products that are individually wrapped. For instance, when you order our top-selling Anti-Wrinkle & Rejuvenating Gold Facial Mask, you will receive five single-use masks that are placed in one box. Here's a list of Doppeltree's variety of single-use packaged products that effectively retain all of their beneficial nutrients: 

 Skincare Packaging Should Have Low Environmental Impact

Skincare routines typically consist of a morning and nighttime routine — meaning products are used once or twice daily. You can minimize your carbon footprint by opting for reusable skincare packaging instead of single-use packaging. 

This is one area that Doppeltree is looking to improve. Be sure to look out for some upcoming Doppeltree products placed inside of airless pump jars! 

Airless jars help lower environmental impact because they keep the product preserved for longer, and once finished, you can actually refill and reuse them with the same product or another product of your choice. Dermatologists and cosmetic chemists told Byrdie that airless packaging is a game-changer for beauty products. 

So the next time you’re browsing the web for the best skin care product in 2022, check out the product's packaging to make sure your choice benefits your skin and the environment.
