1. 35ml Glass Bottles with Lotion Pumps

Because we have done away with as much plastic as possible and opted for premium quality glass bottles, you will want to ensure that they are stored in a cool dry place, and on a clean and dry surface with the lid on to maintain freshness. Bamboo is a porous material, so it likes to be kept dry. If it does succumb to mould, then you must replace it. The glass bottle can be recycled, bamboo parts composted and the plastic pump mechanism can be returned to your local store to be recycled.

Please be careful with our glass packaged items as they are breakable. When preparing your bottle for a refill we have two methods whether you are coming in store or purchasing your refill online. 

In Store:

Please wash and dry your bottle with warm soapy water before coming in and ensure your bottle is fully dry as water left inside the bottle could reduce the shelf life of your refill. Our staff may refuse to refill a bottle if they suspect water is still inside the bottle. When it comes to cosmetics, we must meet the utmost hygiene standards.

- To clean the pump mechanism, simply place the end of the tube into a bowl of warm and lightly soapy water and pump through to remove any excess product within the mechanism. Wipe with a damp cloth all over and then dry the pump attachment thoroughly. 


Your refill bottle will arrive as a new glass bottle with an aluminium lid. Wash and recycle your empty bottle, and clean your pump mechanism as per instructions above before inserting your pump into your new bottle.

2. Bamboo Packaging

Bamboo is a sustainable and hygienic option for housing your natural cosmetics. Bamboo contains a substance known as 'bamboo kun' which helps to keep the bamboo hygienic due to it's natural antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. You will not need to use any cleaning chemicals to keep them clean. The only draw back is that it is brittle and pours, so avoid dropping at all costs! They need to be kept in a cool dry place to maintain their maximum longevity and avoid any mould or rust. Ideally store them in an area with airflow and gentle sunlight to allow the bamboo to breathe, rather than a damp bathroom. If you care for your compacts, they will serve you well for years to come. In order to clean, simply wipe down with a wet cloth and be sure to not submerge in water.

When it comes to your Full-Loop Pure Mineral Powder container you can use a damp cloth to wipe the outer areas as needed. However, be sure to not introduce anything inside the box, beneath the sifter. The product itself is naturally anti-bacterial so we do not recommend adding your makeup brushes inside container either as this will introduce bacteria. We also do not recommend wiping this area as the product will maintain a bacteria-free environment if left as it is. You can simply tap out any excess if needed or alternatively brush clean with a clean dry brush before refilling. 

Lipsticks & Glosses

These gorgeous formulas have been created to withstand changes in temperature as they are often stored in your handbag, however, we are limited by our passion for natural ingredients, so please still be mindful of extreme heat and humidity as well as freezing temperatures as this may alter the product. You may notice the organic cacao butter resetting on the surface. This is nothing to be concerned about and the product will still work effectively.

Packaging can be returned to any Scoop Wholefoods outlet to be recycled.

How to Best Clean Your Scoop Whole Beauty Makeup Brushes

The best way to clean your brushes is to use a small amount of natural shampoo with warm water. Gently scrub the bristles against the palm of your hand and rinse with lukewarm water. Repeat this process if needed until the foam is clean then throughly rinse the bristles to complete the wash. Gently pat dry with a towel and leave the brushes to dry on the edge of your counter, allowing the bristles to balance off the edge of the counter to maximise air flow as well as for them to keep their shape when drying.
