Anyone who thinks that really dressing up a product must involve some significant environmentally detrimental practices can be delightedly proven wrong. Look at Valia Skincare packaging: it has been marvelously manicured with minimal impact on the planet.
Designer Chul Lee chose 100% post-consumer fiber for the cardboard that makes the boxes, 100% recyclable amber bottles, and inks that have been made from soy. Even with these extremely earthy decisions, the cartons flaunt a pristine white base with beautifully embossed floral images. Every piece looks delicately manufactured.
The Valia Skincare packaging is all tied together perfectly in the brown card boxes that exude a natural quality. This line of products is proof that designers shouldn't feel restricted to work with eco-friendly materials and methods.
