The 100% plastic-free lipstick

Determined to avoid plastic at all costs, our bespoke lipstick bullet is made from 100% aluminium. We chose aluminium – ‘the green metal’ – because it is one of the most recycled materials on the planet and can be infinitely recycled without losing quality. 

Many ‘recyclable’ materials used in day-to-day life still end up in landfill because they are glued together with other materials, making them ‘contaminated’. Our bullets’ unique ‘push-up’ design eliminates the need for glue.

Once you have used every trace of your Juni lipstick, you can either:

1. place it in your household recycling bin (please check with your local authority regarding kerbside collection of aluminium)

2. take it to your local household recycling centre and place it in the bin marked ‘Metal’

3. send it back to us (our address is Juni Cosmetics Ltd, PO Box 3726, NR7 7FG) - we will collect all returns and ensure they get recycled efficiently

We are proud to be certified by A Plastic Planet as 100% plastic-free. (This includes all of our packaging – from the bullet to stickers, from the cartons to mailing boxes. Even our suppliers ship our stock to us in special plastic-free packaging)!

Organic

The environment and sustainability are vitally important to everyone at Juni. As a young brand, we’re committed to doing our best. By using certified organically farmed and sustainably sourced ingredients in our formula, we are able to trace every ingredient all the way back to where and how it was grown, processed and manufactured. This helps to protect wildlife and biodiversity. 

Certification ensures that our ingredients are grown without genetically modified organisms (GM), herbicides, synthetic fertilisers, parabens, phthalates, synthetic colours, dyes or fragrances, nano particles, or any other controversial chemicals.

Vegan

Vegan

Our founder, Madeleine, is proud to be vegan and her philosophy extends to everything we do at Juni. Our formula, packaging, and processes used are completely free from any animal products and derivatives, and are always 100% cruelty free. Being registered by The Vegan Society is an honour, because it gives animals the voices they don’t have. We admire everything The Vegan Society stand for and do to protect the health and welfare of animals and humans, and the environment.

"If more manufacturers are willing to make a change, consumers can easily make ethical decisions based on their beliefs, whether that be a love of animals, a need to save the environment, or both!" The Vegan Society
