The Importance of Soy-Based Ink
We are proud to say that all of Seadrop Skincare's packaging (except the glass Eternal Jar, which is designed to be refilled forever) is 100% curbside recyclable and biodegradable. We print on lightweight FSC-certified paper using soy-based inks for a minimal environmental footprint.
Let's dive a little deeper into the importance of using soy-based inks and why it is good for the environment.
Biodegradable. Soy-based ink comes from soy oil that is grown naturally. This allows the ink to degrade more than four times faster than petroleum-based inks.
Renewable. Soy beans, where soy ink is produced from, can be grown ethically and indefinitely to provide the ink.
Easy. Soy beans are easy to grow, using low amounts of irrigation and fertilizers. This advantage makes it easy for both farmers and the environment. Soy ink is also easy when it comes to recycling because it is straightforward to remove from paper.
Seadrop Skincare is designed specifically with extra care for the environment, including ink and packaging that has low impacts on our planet.
