Do you have sample sizes ?

As we are a low waste brand we do not offer mini samples on an an-going basis. We do offer trial packs sizes. Here's why:  A lot of travel-sized products are duplicates of their plastic full-size counterparts and end up in landfills, the oceans, or in rare cases at a recycling plant. 

Why should I switch to powder Beauty?

Our products are:

FULL OF GOODNESS:  Our powders contain no water, preservatives, fragrance nor essential oils or nasties. They are packed with potent, concentrated pure ingredients like coconut powder, blackcurrant powder, kiwifruit powder and kaolin. SUPER CONCENTRATED: Our products last up to 3x longer (depending on the product) than liquid products because they’re super-concentrated. Just add water! LOW WASTE At Dust & Glow, we are want to minimize our impact on the environment.

Are The Refills Home Compostable?

Our pouches will break down in a home compost bin or worm farm, containing heat, water, oxygen, soil and microorganisms. Please ensure you cut the pouch into small pieces including the zip - it will help the breakdown process

What are the refill pouches made of?

Our stand up pouches might look like standard plastic but they are actually made with 2x PLA laminated films. These will break down when disposed of in a composting environment. The individual films used are certified to the European industrial compostable standard OK Compost/EN13432 and either the European or Australian home composting standards OK Compost Home or AS5810.

Polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA) is a polyester derived from renewable biomass, typically from fermented plant starch, such as corn, cassava, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp. While the feedstock currently doesn’t compete with food production, manufacturers are already investigating the use of non-agricultural feedstocks. The environmental advantages of PLA bioplastics over those plastics derived from petroleum are measurable and significant.

How do you package your products?

We ship from our Auckland HQ using plastic-free, compostable packaging including paper tape, cardboard boxes and paper filler. 

Do you use preservatives?

As our powders are anhydrous (ie they don't contain any water) they don’t support microbial life. This means that the full range is preservative-free!
