Clochee is clean, green and pure. This statement is absolutely central to our philosophy and the way we develop our products.
One of the ways we strive to be eco-friendly and care for our environment is by using d2w plastic in the jars of our skincare range.
So what exactly is d2w plastic?
In essence, it is biodegradable plastic. Plastic made with d2w looks and feels just like ordinary plastic and can be recycled just like any other plastic. But here’s the magic part, if it ends up in general waste or, even worse, released into the open environment, it will degrade and biodegrade! d2w accelerates the natural process of oxidation until the product is no longer a plastic, but instead, a material which can be bio-assimilated by bacteria and fungi.
How does d2w work?
d2w is an additive which contains a mixture of salts that is added to raw plastic during the manufacturing process. Providing oxygen is present, this additive will degrade and biodegrade the plastic if it escapes into the open environment or into general waste.
Is it safe?
Absolutely! d2w plastic biodegrades naturally, in the same way a leaf would. It leaves behind no toxic residues or fragments meaning no micro plastics. d2w oxo-biodegradable (controlled-life) plastic additive has been awarded an internationally-recognised Eco-label.
