recycle material

Currently most of their products are packed in plastic, glass and metal.
Customers can send their empty jars to the Nykaa warehouse for recycling.

It should be noted, that most makeup plastics are difficult to recycle.
So it is always good when brands accept back their empties for sterilizing and recycling and when they offer refills.

It is important to note that, many harmful compounds found in nail polish are toxic to the environment, which is why it must not thrown out along with your regular trash.
Brand claims to be working on establishing a system for collecting the plastic waste generated through its production.
This is mandated by the current law CPCB laid down by the Indian Govt.
