Zero Waste Box Initiative



Join our pledge to turn little actions into big differences. As an environmentally committed brand, we’re changing our recycling habits. You can now bring back all your beauty empties to our salon and we’ll recycle them for you.  

Introducing our new Zero Waste Box in salon now!


What is a Zero Waste Box?

Zero Waste Box™ is a convenient easy-to-use recycling solution. From empty Guinot moisturisers, masks and cleansers to other beauty brands empties Zero Waste Boxes make it possible to recycle rubbish that is not accepted through your local council.
