It’s important to recycle.

We are committed to constant innovation in our physical and digital products to reduce the burden on our planet. We’ve created this page as a tool for customers to have all the information needed to responsibly disassemble, clean, and break down physical packaging so it can be accepted by your local recycling plant.

  • Shipping Materials

    1. Paper Recycling

    This shipper box was designed by Soft Services to be sealed with minimal adhesive to make break-down and recycling easy. After opening via the perforated tab, cut off adhesive flap and discard (the sticky adhesive can prevent the carton from being accepted and processed at all facilities). Place the remaining carton in normal curbside paper recycling along with the shipper bag. The entire shipper bag, including the paper string ties, are recyclable.

  • Smoothing Solution

    1. Paper Recycling

    Break down the Smoothing Solution carton by unlocking both top and bottom flaps and lay completely flat. Place in normal curbside paper recycling with carton liner.

    2. Aluminum Recycling

    In order to recycle any aluminum tube, it must first be cleaned. Cut completely across the empty tube at the top, removing the crimped edge. Discard the cut-off top—the glue used to crimp and seal the tube is not recyclable. WARNING: Be careful not to injure your fingers on the exposed aluminum edge. Tip—insert a pair of scissors carefully into the tube and open to help widen the tube for cleaning. Rinse the inside of the tube with water. Place in normal curbside metal recycling.

    3. Plastic Recycling

    Rinse the inside of the cap with water and place in normal curbside plastic recycling.
    *While this PP–type plastic cap is recyclable, some recycling plants may reject the cap due to its small size as it may not be able to be properly sorted by the plant’s machinery.

  • Carea Cream

    1. Paper Recycling

    Break down the Carea Cream carton by unlocking both top and bottom flaps and lay completely flat. Place in normal curbside paper recycling with carton liner.

    2. Aluminum Recycling

    In order to recycle any aluminum bottle, it must first be cleaned. Fill the empty bottle halfway with warm water and dish soap. Seal with either the Locking Pump or cap and shake to clean. Repeat if needed. Follow with a warm water rinse. Tip—you can clean the Locking Pump component at the same time; after shaking, dispense the soapy water by pumping and repeat with clean warm water.

    Remove the *gasket from the inside top of the aluminum cap (this is the small white disc placed inside the cap that keeps the Carea Cream from leaking in transit) and discard. Place both the bottle and cap in normal curbside metal recycling.

  • Locking Pump

    1. Paper Recycling

    Break down the Locking Pump carton by unlocking both top and bottom flaps and lay completely flat. Place in normal curbside paper recycling.

    2. Pump

    The Locking Pump, like almost all similar pumps, is made of multiple materials and small parts, which unfortunately makes it non-recyclable. We encourage you to clean and keep the Locking Pump to reuse with future orders of the Carea Cream.

    To clean, fill your empty Carea Cream bottle with warm water and dish soap, shake, and pump the solution through the component. Repeat with clean water to rinse.
