OWP is a recycled material made from plastic waste that is collected from our oceans. A local network of fishing communities collects OWP, which gets cleaned, sorted, and turned into recycled (and recyclable) packaging for our jars. Kinship’s OWP is traceable to the Java Sea and marine sources in Indonesia.
(Tip: use your phone’s camera to scan the QR code on the jars of Insta Swipe and Supermello to see their exact source.) OWP complies with the EU’s cosmetics regulations for safe packaging, and Kinship’s is BPA-free.
With OWP + post-consumer recycled materials, Kinship has already made a measurable impact on cleaning up our oceans + reducing our carbon footprint:
- In our first 8 months as a new brand, Kinship has removed 2 tons of plastic waste from our oceans by using OWP packaging.
- OWP production emits 75% fewer greenhouse gases than virgin plastic.
- Recycling plastic saves 2x as much energy, versus when it’s incinerated.
There’s an undeniable connection between our health and that of our planet. What’s clean + non-toxic for your skin should be true for our environment, too. We believe that self-care and the care for our planet should go hand-in-hand. Together, we are making change for the good.
Kinship combines wellness with science-led skincare to create affordable, clean, high-performance, consciously-packaged and cruelty-free products. At the heart of our products is Kinbiome™– a proprietary microbiome technology that supports a healthy skin barrier. We are your skin's support system.
