Project Unicorn

From February 2019 to-date, “Project Unicorn” has eliminated 1 MILLION pounds of excess waste. We continue to work like mad scientists to strip down our packaging to next to nothing, covering only what we have to.

It's one step forward on our path to reducing our
packaging footprint.

1,000,000 pounds
of excess
packaging
waste is equal to

3,800 baby
elephants.

(and, nut-free too)

5,300,000
cupcakes.

(not to mention sprinkles)

375,000
kittens.

(me-wow!)

1,000
unicorns.

(They're Probably 1,000 LBS
Each, Right?!)

We believe in a world where everyone can own their beauty, without compromise.

This year we're partnering with the
