Why use PCR vessels?

How long does it take for plastic to fully degrade?

Plastic that is less than 200 years old will take 500 years in a landfill to fully decompose.

It takes 500 years to fully decompose in a landfill.

Once in a landfill, plastic goes in circles and eventually ends up in the ocean,

where sea creatures often mistake it for food and die.

Microplastics can also make their way up the food chain and into the human body, where they can cause toxicity.

They get into our bodies, causing toxicity and serious health problems.

Suiskin wanted to find a way to minimize the environmental impact without giving up the convenience and portability of plastic.

That's when he started researching post-consumer recycled plastics (PCR).

There are not many eco-friendly plastic companies in Korea, so the production cost of PCR containers is high.

There is also a disadvantage that the process of making eco-friendly plastic (PCR) (high-pressure washing and crushing of used plastic, followed by melting at high heat) turns the color of the container yellow. So we talked to several companies and sampled containers to find a transparent and clean container that could show our brand image well for a long time.

In the end, we found a company that had a high content of recycled plastic and was able to achieve a clear color, which led to the creation of the PCR container for Suiskin Green Sprout Vegan Toner.

At Suiskin, we ultimately aim to reduce the environmental impact of all our products.

From production to disposal to decomposition, we strive to find ways to minimize our environmental impact.
