Watsons' Blue Beauty Range Fights Ocean Plastic Waste with Natural Ingredients and Powerful Results

“Ocean-bound plastics have far-reaching impacts, not only on the ocean but also on our habitat. To raise awareness of ocean-bound plastic, Watsons has launched Naturals by Watsons’ Special Edition Blue Beauty range. It features bottles made of 100% recycled ocean-bound plastic, representing an important milestone in our ongoing efforts to promote sustainability. The new range encourages our customers to join us in protecting the ocean and marine life, inspiring them to love their skin while loving the planet. Every decision, no matter how big or small, plays a vital role in protecting our planet. That's why we’ve expanded the number of Sustainable Choices products we offer to 9,700, ranging from skincare, hair care, to personal care products, making sustainable living more accessible. By embracing sustainable choices in our everyday lives, we empower our customers to Look Good, Do Good, and Feel Great with us.” ~Malina Ngai, CEO of AS Watson
Watsons Fights Against Ocean Plastic Waste Through Naturals by Watsons’ Blue Beauty Range

In honor of Earth Day, Watsons, AS Watson Group's flagship health and beauty brand, is pleased to launch Naturals by Watsons' Special Edition Blue Beauty range in Hong Kong, Thailand, and Taiwan, with plans to expand to Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines soon.  

Every year, 14 million tons of plastic enter the ocean, equivalent to the weight of over 140,000 blue whales. By 2050, the weight of plastics in the ocean is expected to exceed that of fish, with ocean-bound plastic being a major contributor. Ocean-bound plastic is defined as abandoned plastic waste located within 50 kilometers of shores where waste management is either nonexistent or inefficient. These impacts affect at least 700 marine.

Naturals by Watsons' Special Edition Blue Beauty collection includes shower gel, body lotion, shampoo, and conditioner. Each product contains over 94% natural ingredients, and every bottle is made from 100% recycled ocean-bound plastic. Customers who choose the new range can actively contribute to the fight against plastic waste in our oceans while also enjoying high-quality, sustainable personal care products. This range is part of Watsons' efforts to support the AS Watson Group's commitment to reducing the overall impact of plastics used in its exclusive brand packaging.

Naturals by Watsons' Special Edition Blue Beauty is set to debut in Watsons stores across the Philippines in mid-May, offering a clean beauty line free of 20 unwanted ingredients. Each product contains a formulation enriched with certified organic Algae sourced from Portugal, which delivers powerful results through natural ingredients that provide deep hydration.

Customers who choose the Naturals by Watsons Special Edition Blue Beauty range are actively contributing to the fight against plastic waste in our oceans while also indulging in high-quality and sustainable personal care products.
