Olay testing sustainable packaging

The Procter & Gamble-owned skincare brand has announced at the 2019 Sustainable Brands Conference, it will be releasing a refillable version of its Olay Regenerist Whip Moisturiser.

The product, which is typically sold in a plastic jar, will launch with a refillable pod option made of recyclable materials, to be available for sale on in the U.S. and U.K. from October through December, a period of time that will allow the brand to gauge consumer interest in refillable skincare.

“If this is successful and appealing to the consumer and they want to adopt the habit, this could be really impactful. If we took five of our best-selling SKUs [in jars], and gave them a refillable option, that could reduce one million pounds of plastic waste a year," said Olay vice president, Chris Heiert.
