Sensenique Natural uses PET for its packaging. PET is globally recognized as a safe, recyclable packaging material. PET does not contain BPA, phthalates, dioxins, lead or cadmium.
There are 3 main reasons why we have chosen to use PET for our products.
REASON 1: 100% RECYCLABLE*
The latest recycling techniques and processes allow PET to be recycled many times. Recycled polyethylene terephthalate (RPET) can be used to make many new products, including fiber for polyester carpet; fabric for T-shirts, long underwear, athletic shoes, luggage, upholstery and sweaters; fiberfill for sleeping bags and winter coats; industrial strapping, sheet and film; automotive parts, such as luggage racks, headliners, fuse boxes, bumpers, grilles and door panels; and new PET containers for both food and non-food products.
REASON 2 : SUSTAINABILITY*
PET is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly packaging option. A recent Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) conducted by the Allied Development Corporation determined how the environmental footprint and greenhouse gas emissions of manufacturing and transporting PET relates to alternative forms of packaging. The first study found that in North America, PET is the most favorable alternative when compared to aluminum cans and glass bottles for a 355 ml carbonated soft drink application. When measuring greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption, PET containers had the best performance.
These lightweight PET bottles require fewer raw materials to produce, less fuel for transport and are still completely recyclable.

REASON 3: INCREASED CONSUMER SAFETY
Since our hair care and body care are used in the bath, the use of glass could be dangerous if dropped. PET bottles do not pose such safety risks.
