Hey babes, Takiara here, owner of Unique Beauty Blends. I wanted to share with you all something Ive grown really passionate about. Being raised in Baltimore city, Ive spent my life seeing the streets lined with trash on trash on trash. The amount of waste that goes on in my city is truly unbelievable, so I started taking an interest in how I can do MY part is making things better for my community and planet. Now with a storefront right in the heart of Baltimore city, my goal is to not only be an eco-concousious brand but to encourage and educate my community on the importance of recycling and how to reduce plastic use and waste. As you guys know, we've been slowing transitioning into all glass packaging in efforts to try and reduce plastic waste. The beauty industry is notorious for being a wasteful industry, so as a leading brand in my industry not contributing to the problem is important to me.
How is Uni Beauty an Eco-Consious Sustainable Brand?
All online orders are shipped in Eco-Friendly packaging and in-store purchases are packaged in Eco-Friendly packaging.
We no longer ship orders in plastic poly mailers, we only use biodegradable shipping boxes. You may know that uncontaminated cardboard is naturally biodegradable, but because our products are all natural, cardboard boxes with natural oils can still be composted in your garden. Recycling our shipping boxes also has the added benefit of reusing the pulp and minimizing the need to cut down more trees. Luckily, although we recommend recycling your boxes, they will break down over time no matter what method you use to discard them.
We use glass packaging.
Uni Beauty is committed to reducing the production of plastic, a non-biodegradable substance and using Glass which is 100% recyclable. Glass can also be melted down and reused without loss of quality.
Cruelty Free and Sustainably Sourced Ingredients
We commit to only using the best, most high quality natural, sustainably sourced ingredients. We also promise to never test on animals, only humans with their consent.
Our online and in-store refill program.
We are super excited to announce that we are launching our Refill, Reuse, Recycle program. We will have an in-store refill stations featuring household, beauty, hair and skincare products. We will also have online refill options for all our skincare products using Kraft and eco-friendly biodegradable pouches. Our Refill program will be officially launching on 9.1.21. We know you have many questions, and we are here to answer them.
So what is the purpose of the refill program.
The purpose of our refill program is to do our part in eliminating unneccesary plastic waste, by offering refills on our products, you have the opportunity to save money in the long run by not having to purchase the products you love at regular price when you run out. Just go to the product listing of your fave product and click refill. Refills will come in either Kraft or a biodegradable pouch. Once received you can just refill your jar or bottle and recycle your refill container and your all done. Not only do you get to enjoy the products you love at a fraction of the price but you will be doing your part in making our planet and your community by reducing waste.
When will your refill stations be available in store?
You can expect to enjoy the convenience of refilling your products at our downtown Baltimore location beginning in late September.
