"The era of convenience is over. Now comes the time when discomfort changes the world."
Jun soo Park, TOUN28 Co-founder
Until now, Toun28 has been paying for cosmetic containers, not cosmetic products. In most cases, the raw material costs are only 2 to 10%. An estimated 60 to 98% of costs are for containers and marketing. TOUN28 'Put Ons' pay 90% of costs for the raw ingredients, and only 10% for containers.
Toun28 doesn't just think about the environment. They act for the environment.
Two billion animals are killed every year due to swallowing dumped plastic garbage. The plastic containers we use for our daily cosmetic products are no different. What is more, a lot of natural cosmetic product bottles are colored green, symbolizing the environment. But is this really eco-friendly? that cannot be recycled.
Thus, TOUN28 developed a biodegradable paper container for daily cosmetics to reduce plastic use. TOUN28 tried over 500 times to develop the world's first paper recycle-labeling paper package. We are still on the journey to make a 100%-biodegradable paper container with no plastic cap.
But in the meantime, they give you organic and natural 'Put Ons' in the paper packages that everyone used to say was impossible.
