I am concerned about the Kaolin Micro Exfoliant aluminum tube.Updated a year ago

As we prepared to launch the new packaging for our Kaolin Micro Exfoliant, we had gone back and forth on whether to keep this facial scrub in a plastic bottle or to make a switch to something different. We knew we couldn't store it in our typical Miron glass jars, as this product needed to be kept enclosed and in a container that could not be opened with fingers and water potentially coming in contact with the ingredients.

We always want to do all that we can to avoid using plastics, and when we found this aluminum tube we were really excited. This aluminum is not actually touching the product—its interior is lined with a non-BPA/BPS coating that protects it from any pH change or adjustment to the ingredients inside of it. Lastly, it is the number one most recycled material, so it's guaranteed to be accepted by recycling facilities more often than plastics.

I hope this helps with your concern and I would be happy to answer any other questions you may have. We really want you to know that this was a thought-out process and there was care and concern going into the decision made :)
