The Future of Biobased and Captured Carbon in the Personal Care Industry
Carbon dioxide is as much part of our lives as oxygen and water are. It is an important greenhouse gas that helps trap heat in our atmosphere; without it, our planet would be too cold to live on. However, an increase in CO2 concentrations is causing average global temperatures to rise, fueling the climate and biodiversity crises. There is rising concern about the carbon footprint of the beauty industry: from manufacturing to shipping and packaging, personal care products leave a trail of carbon emissions.
