Why is Dust&Glow waterless ?
At Dust&Glow, we are proud to be a waterless beauty brand. Here are some reasons why:
- Environmental impact: Water is a precious resource that is often taken for granted. By going waterless, we can help reduce our impact on the environment by conserving water
- Less packaging therefore reduced carbon footprint: most beauty products contain 80% water. By removing the water, we are significantly reducing the need for packaging & reducing the weight of each product. Less packaging Less plastic, Less carbon footprint.
- Longer shelf life: Water-based products can have a shorter shelf life than those that are waterless. By eliminating water from our formulations, our products can have a longer shelf life without the need for harsh preservatives.
- More concentrated formulas: Our waterless products are more concentrated, meaning you need less product to achieve the same results as a water-based product. On average 1 Dust&Glow is the equivalent to 3x liquid alternatives.
- Portability: Waterless products are perfect for on-the-go use, as they don't require water to apply or remove. This makes them ideal for travel or for use during outdoor activities.
Overall, being a waterless brand is a part of our commitment to creating high-quality, sustainable products that are better for you and the planet.

Where do you store your Dust&Glow powders
Designed for In-Shower Use:
Our Dust&Glow powders are perfect for your in-shower beauty routine. To store them, simply keep the outer lid on and place the bottles in your bathroom or shower. The specially designed lid protects the powders from clumping or getting wet. You'll love the sleek aluminum bottles that won't rust or break, adding a touch of elegance to your bathroom.
Prevent Direct Water Flow:
For prolonged freshness, avoid direct water exposure. Storing your bottles away from direct water flow helps maintain the powders' quality.
Top 5 Storage Options:
- Built-in Shower Niche or Cavity: Utilise your shower's built-in niche or cavity to securely store your Dust&Glow powders. These small recesses keep your powders dry and easily accessible during your shower routine.
- Additional Shelf ("Shelfie"): Enhance your shower setup with a waterproof shelf like the Block Dock's "shelfie." Ideal for those without built-in storage, it keeps your powders dry and organized away from water.
- Shower Floor: If convenience is key, placing your powders on the shower floor in a water-free zone, such as a corner, ensures easy access without compromising their quality.
- Bathroom Vanity: Opt for a bathroom vanity shelf or drawer to store your powders outside the shower. Perfect for those who prefer separate storage and a clutter-free shower.
- Cosmetic Bag for On-the-Go: Travel or hit the gym with your Dust&Glow powders in a cute, protective cosmetic bag. This option keeps your powders dry and ready for use wherever you go.
Storing your Dust&Glow powders is a breeze with these practical tips.
