European definition - regulations
Please note that in the following content, we are taking information from the European Union and France as reference points or as guidance and do not have a definite legal requirement for your market.
France is the most advanced country in terms of legislation with regard to refillable beauty - for now - it gives us a glimpse into the future of regulation or helps us where the regulations might head towards.
It’s important to note that the legislator needs to give a clear definition of what constitutes a refillable product, and what are the rules to market refillable products (should the parent/host packaging be fully recyclable or is there room for non-recyclability since the parent/host packaging shall “technically” never be recycled), what technicality or other aspect must it offer.
