Diary: The Secret Refillable Skincare Dinner

Fresh-to-market prescription skincare brand, The Secret hosted special guests over an intimate dinner this month to celebrate the launch of their latest milestone: refillable packaging.

The event was hosted at Shell House Sydney in the private dining area. Dining tables were lined with a striking mix of purple, fuchsia and white florals. Sandstone slabs boldly featured under the brand’s re-packaged products and were placed around the venue for guests to study.

“It’s essential to us that the footprint we leave behind is a positive one, not only on the skin of our patients but on the planet, sustainability remains one of our core values and we’re proud to offer our patients a solution that minimises product wastage and usage confusion while providing optimum skin health results,” said Deb.

In a press statement to media, the brand noted –

“All packaging at The Secret is reusable, recyclable or biodegradable and waste continues to be minimised with products that are not only made to order but are longer lasting because of improved sizing and airless dosage dispensing, so they remain active for the optimum time frame.

While the outer vessels housing the refillable pod have been designed to keep, they can also be recycled. The refill pod is also fully recyclable and can be sent back to The Secret (six pods, results in one free product), or recycled at home or at a TerraCycle location.”
