by Chloe Gordon on 08/18/2021 | 3 Minute Read

Talk about sustainability meeting innovation, Ace of Air is reimagining the packaging world that's Sustainably-sourced, cruelty-free, vegan beauty & consists of products that are all packaged in reusable containers that work exclusively through Ace of Air's closed-loop system. Not only do consumers return their empty packages to be returned, cleaned, and reused, but the packages themselves are made from waste plastic recovered from the ocean. Ace of Air is impeccable in their mission, and have put extensive thought and research into making every detail as eco-friendly and sustainable as possible.

The need for sustainable design within the personal care industry is not new news. C-suite executive Stephanie Stahl and founding partner, supermodel and humanitarian Petra Nemcova, set out to raise the standard by creating the rst entirely circular beauty & wellness brand in partnership with branding agency, Bartlett Brands. 

3 years later, Ace of Air has innovated and advocated on everything from packaging to practices to create a new world of wellness where our planet thrives as much as our people. A “buy the product, borrow the package” model with longest-life packaging designed to be reused 100+ times. No more single-use. No more waste.

Sustainably-sourced, cruelty-free, vegan beauty & wellness products are contained in reusable packages that work exclusively in Ace of Air’s closed-loop system. The primary containers are made from stainless steel coated with food-grade ceramic.

With space-saving silhouettes, the products are dierentiated from each other with colored cus made from Fair Trade, renewable natural rubber. They are designed to be modular for exible management of packaging inventory. All airtight closures use natural rubber instead of plastic. 

Ace of Air is responsible for the entire lifecycle of their packaging—partnering with UPS to develop the Boomerang Box, a sleek send-back system that makes it easy for consumers to receive products and return empty packaging to be cleaned and reused. Made of recovered ocean waste plastic with a modular insert to protect the primary packages, the Boomerang Box eliminates all traditional shipping trash. When it comes time to retire a package, Ace of Air disassembles and properly recycles every piece. 

Packaging gets shipped UPS Ground (with a carbon-neutral oset) to and from The Sky Lab—Ace of Air’s proprietary, state-of- the-art sterilization and fulllment facility. Each package is tracked on a sophisticated tech platform so consumers can follow the journey.
