BioBlender products are made of biodegradable foam material using only 5 ingredients (water, corn, bionanopol*, natural preservative, and natural pigment). Each one is USDA certified, planet-friendly, biobased, vegan, and cruelty-free.

*Bionanopol is the secret ingredient that makes BioBlender biodegradable and compostable!

Yes, of course! All BioBlender products are made from natural ingredients, safe for sensitive skin, and are dermatologist tested.

BIOBLENDER: RECYCLING, COMPOSTING & BIODEGRADING 

How do I properly dispose of my BioBlender?

BioBlender can be placed in a compost bin or by finding a compost drop-off and pick-up option in your area. Always check with your local recycling center to understand what they may and may not accept!

 

How do I properly dispose of the packaging?

The PCR (post-consumer recycled)* paper packaging is also biodegradable and can be recycled. The plastic is also PCR, but should be disposed of in a recycling bin as it is not biodegradable at this time.

*PCR (post-consumer recycled) material is plastic and paper waste collected at local recycling centers that’s then sorted, sterilized, and repurposed.

 

Will the BioBlender degrade during use?

No, they will not degrade during use. It is designed to maintain composition to effortlessly blend your makeup for a natural-looking finish. For the BioBlender to degrade, it needs to be in a compost environment. We recommend replacing your BioBlender every 30 days for an optimal experience.

Each link will directly send you to the product view on that retailer’s website. You will follow normal purchasing practices once adding to your cart.

 

What if the product I want is not linking to the correct page?

Let us know and we can help you find it. All links should send you directly to the product page for the retail partner you choose.

What if the packaging I receive looks different than what I saw online?

As of June 2020, we began updating our product range in new packaging across our entire portfolio.  The process will take time to move all of our products into new packaging. Some of our products will be in old packaging until we run out of inventory so that we do not produce excess waste.  However, the products themselves are all the same so you do not need to worry about quality or performance.  We are just doing our part to ensure less waste exists within the beauty world!
