What Does Microplastic-Free Mean, Anyway?

Alpine Shrine Skincare uses biodegradable, industrial-compostable, and non-plastic materials for our balm, jars, and labels. Our materials were carefully chosen to be both sustainable and plastic-free.

We partnered with Sulapac, a revolutionary new packaging start-up that makes ocean-safe goods designed to breakdown quickly in the environment and leave no trace. You can learn more about it here at
Alpine Shrine Skincare Jars and Labels are also EN 13432 Certified and PLASTIC-FREE Certified (

How Long Will It Take for My Product to Biodegrade?

Under the right conditions, your Alpine Shrine All-Season Balm, Jar, and Labels will all biodegrade within 3-4 months.
