Nagua presents its line of solid cosmetics: sustainable packaging and quality at your fingertips!

Nagua solid cosmetics were created for perfect personal care while helping to preserve the environment! Our materials are natural origin. This means that by using our solid cosmetics you will not be releasing plastics and micro plastics into the marine environment.

In addition, Nagua’s solid cosmetics are perfect for helping to reduce plastic packaging! After all, our packaging does not contain plastic and is sustainable.

Advantages of the solid cosmetic line

Using Nagua’s solid cosmetic line has many advantages. Know some of them:

  • Eco-sustainability: Nagua’s solid cosmetics are made with concentrated formulations. This means that a product, which is relatively smaller, corresponds approximately to two packages of a normal product. In other words, a 70 gram solid product corresponds to two 150 ml plastic bottles. So it’s double savings! After all, you’ll only need to purchase one product instead of two and, consequently, it will help to reduce plastic packaging disposal. Another important point concerns the impact of this plastic when it is discarded in nature. A plastic bottle can take 100 to 1000 years to decompose, while paper only needs 2 months. Also, if you have compost, you can dispose of the packaging without harming nature or producing more waste. You can learn more about composting by clicking here.
  • Transport: When compared to the transport of traditional products, solid products reduce the weight and volume of the transported goods. Therefore, they directly contribute to reducing CO2 emissions. In addition, our products can be safely transported in hand luggage on planes, as they do not contain liquid. An excellent alternative to take them on vacation.
  • Quality: Nagua products are made with great care, we always try to respect the balance between sustainability and respect for nature with the consumer’s needs. In addition, our aromas, with natural extracts, approved by AIAB are special and will win you over!

To reflect: the impact of plastics on the ocean

A study published by Frontiers in Marine Science revealed that there are at least 14 million tons of plastic in 3 kilometers of ocean depth. Microplastics are the main responsible for these numbers. But what are microplastics?

The impact of plastic on nature

Plastics, microplastics and their derivatives are very dangerous to nature.

More about microplastics

Microplastics are those tiny plastic particles that pollute our seas and oceans. They have a diameter between 330 micrometers and 5 millimeters. They are the result of plastic dispersion in the environment. This is because these plastics dissolve into smaller fragments due to a variety of causes. From the effect of ultraviolet rays to wind, waves, microbes and high temperatures.
Microplastics can also come directly from our faucets by washing textiles with synthetic fibers, the use of products with petroleum-based ingredients, some cosmetics with dissolving agents or toothpaste, etc.

The impact of plastic on the marine environment

73% of fish that live between 200 and 1000 meters deep have microplastics in their bodies.

These fragments end up in the food chain of marine life, ingested and accumulated in the bodies and tissues of many organisms. Besides, between 15 and 20% of the marine species we consume contain microplastics in their bodies. And that number rises to 73% when we consider the consume of fish that live between 200 to 1000 meters deep. Therefore, everything ends up on our tables and in our bodies with serious risks to human health as well as that of marine animals.
