Better World Initiatives
As Australia’s ethical beauty icon, we are committed to protecting our precious planet and have taken all the available steps to make customers who buy from us proud to use Adorn Cosmetics.
Did you know that up to 70% of cosmetics globally DO NOT get finished and end up in landfill? Unique to the beauty industry, our sample program saves you time and money and helps protect our beautiful planet by giving you the opportunity to trial our cosmetics and ensuring correct product choices.
Our cosmetics are not boxed individually or wrapped in plastic and proudly packaged in biodegradable, reusable or recyclable packaging. We pride ourselves on offering sustainably manufactured products with the lowest possible carbon footprint, consciously contributing to the conservation of our beautiful planet.
We are proudly the first global beauty brand to offer an environmentally friendly cosmetics refill program. Our refill program encourages our Adorners to reuse our packaging and since refills use up to 90% less plastic, produce less waste and consume less energy, refilling your products has never felt better!
Return & Recycle Rewards
With the beauty industry being a major contributor to waste, the Adorn team understands the importance of taking responsibility for the lifecycle of our product packaging. In addition to biodegradable packaging and our reuse & refill product options, we have partnered with TerraCycle to recycle all Adorn beauty packaging that is returned to us here in Melbourne.
Simply return 10+ empty Adorn products and we will work with TerraCycle to recycle them for you into products such as outdoor furniture. How amazing!

To ensure the safe arrival of your beautiful, guilt-free cosmetics, our team lovingly wrap them with gorgeous eco-friendly, biodegradable / recyclable protective paper and biodegradable / recyclable ribbon. Made from SFI/Recycled material our honey comb looking paper is a wonderful alternative to environmentally harmful plastic bubble wrap and foam.
Adorn Classic and Bright’s Lipsticks, Concealers, Cream Blush and our Soothing Barrier Balm are also packed in luxury biodegradable packaging.
Adorn products that are packaged in luxury 'airless' pumps offer optimal formula protection and increased shelf life so that our mineral and botanical ingredients are not compromised by the damaging affects of air through oxidization. With each pump, the product is pushed upward, creating a vacuum as the product is dispensed. This vacuum eliminates waste in two ways: The airless environment preserves the product’s efficacy and freshness longer than traditional packaging, and it also allows for every last bit of product to be easily extracted by our customers.
Being Australian Made, it is important that our products are made reef safe. Our natural ingredients and SPF in our mineral foundation and BB Creams are not toxic to coral or any marine life in our beautiful coral reef eco-system.
