Why isn’t Hey Humans 100% plastic free?
Hey Humans is about the journey we are all on to be kinder to our bodies and to the world around us. Our consciously designed packaging is 99% plastic free and we are on a path to get to 100%. The 1% plastic we do use is plastic waste. No new plastic is used or produced for our product packaging. We hope you will join us and become active participants on the impact of your daily choices. A few more details about the 1% plastic waste found in our products — Toothpaste: Our cap is made from a corn-based plastic substitute made from fermented plant starch. Deodorant: The glue content and interior lining of our cap and base are PLA, a vegetable-based plastic material. It is there to protect the paper from any leakage. Body Wash and Body Lotion: The plastic liner in the cap works as a sealant and prevents spills and leaks.
How do I recycle the aluminum packaging (body lotion, body wash and toothpaste tubes)?
Our body lotion, body wash and toothpaste tubes are made of aluminum. We use aluminum because it is infinitely recyclable. Nearly 75% of aluminum that has ever been produced is still in use today. Aluminum can be melted down and reformed without losing any quality, and the process can be repeated over and over again. Clean out any leftover product in the aluminum bottle with water, screw the cap back on and place in your designated recycling bin. Squeeze out any remaining product from the aluminum tube. Remove the toothpaste cap and place the tube in the designated recycling bin.
How do I recycle the paper packaging (toothpaste carton and deodorant)?
Our toothpaste carton and deodorant is made of FSC® paper which comes from responsibly-sourced wood fiber. Paper has a 66% recycling rate vs. plastic which has a 9% recycling rate. Clean out any leftover product, put cap back on and place in your designated recycling bin.
How can I minimize wear and tear on my deodorant packaging?
Due to the nature of the material, you may see some wear and tear with our paper packaging, especially if too much pressure is applied. Please open and close the top (cover) gently, handling with care. And remember that when you are using our natural deodorant, make sure that it is pushed out so that the deodorant, and not the packaging, comes into contact with your skin—this will also help protect the integrity of our sustainable packaging.
Can I repurpose the bottles?
Yes, you can upcycle our bottles. Just wash your bottles with soap and water and they can be repurposed into a vase or filled with products like dish soap or hand soap. Be sure to properly label the bottle before reusing.
Where are Hey Humans products made?
Our products are proudly made in the USA.
Where can I see a list of your ingredients?
A full ingredient list for each of our products can be found on the back of our packaging as well as the product detail pages on the website.
