Bottle Return

The beauty industry contributes significantly to the global plastic waste crisis, with staggering statistics highlighting its environmental impact. According to a report by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the beauty industry produces over 120 billion units of packaging annually. Shockingly, the majority of these packages end up in landfills or oceans, with only a fraction being recycled. Moreover, a study by Zero Waste Europe reveals that plastic packaging accounts for nearly 70% of total plastic waste generated by the beauty sector. This excessive reliance on plastic packaging not only contributes to pollution but also perpetuates the cycle of single-use plastics, exacerbating environmental degradation and harming marine life.

As a product-based business, it is our responsibility to do what we can to prevent waste and harm to the planet. One of the ways we can lower our impact is to offer a bottle return program to our customers. At Cocoon, we opt for glass packaging for our products due to its sustainability compared to plastic. Glass remains inert and impermeable, releasing no harmful chemicals when exposed to heat or sunlight and it is easily sanitized for reuse without degradation. This is why we are able to offer a packaging return program that allows us to repurchase bottles from our customers in order to  sanitize and reuse them. Additionally, we collect pumps and send them to a third party recycling company that specializes in cosmetics.  Our goal is to be as circular as possible.

How it works:

Bottles and pumps can be returned to our two locations in Kitchener (Store and Spa) as well as participating retailers:

Ecowell - Mount Forest, Ontario

Truth Beauty Co - Waterloo, Ontario

We will also provide a mailing label if you have 10 or more bottles to send us. Please contact us at to arrange a return.

Surprisingly Harsh on Sensitive Skin

Love the smell and feel of this mask when applying it. However, with a thin layer and only 5 minutes on, I started to feel some uncomfortable tingling. Washed the mask off right away and my skin is hot, angry red. Unfortunate experience, but absolutely love all the other Cocoon products I use. The mask just isn't for me.


Cocoon Apothecary

Good morning Anastasia, I am sorry that your skin had such a strong reaction to our Ancient Mud facial mask. This product is very concentrated and has a high salt content, and this reaction is not unexpected, especially the first time trying the product. This product can feel active/tingling on the skin and cause redness as it brings the blood close to the surface of the skin. If you are willing to try the product again, I would recommend you start with a facial toner so your face is damp and then apply the mask. Your skin may still have a strong reaction, but this should dissipate with continued use. I am sorry your experience wasn't as expected. Please let me know if you have any further questions, I am happy to help. Christine Cocoon Apothecary

Burns a bit

After the burning sensation, its great. This feeling will not prevent my from using it though.


Cocoon Apothecary

Hi Jen, I am sorry to hear you experienced a burning sensation when using the Ancient Mud. This product is very active and intense as it has deep sea minerals in it. So it is not uncommon for it to feel active on the skin with a high tingling sensation or burning sensation on first use. This will improve on the second, third etc. use as your skin becomes used to the minerals and salts in the mud. Please ensure you you mix the product well before use. The mask does a deep exfoliation and combined with other forms of regular exfoliation may leave the new cells to feel aggravated with the dead sea mud as there are natural salts within it. I hope this information will help you to continue to enjoy the Ancient Mud Facial Mask. We do appreciate your feedback. Christine Cocoon Apothecary

Beautiful mask!

I love all the products I have and this is one of them! My face had some type as dermatitis as the doctors call it when not sure how to peg the rash I had on my cheeks. I combined this with two other products from here and my skin within three weeks has healed beautifully, my complexion looks amazing. Soft-healthy and smooth skin! I cannot say enough about this company and their beautiful skin care line! So grateful!!! Thank you for creating such a product where there is so much heart in behind it!

Maybe not for sensitive skin but!!

If you are using this mask and have sensitive skin it may not be the best choice to put all over your face. My skin reacts to products easily and after using this mask it leaves my skin red and dry. However! You can definitely go in after with a hydrating mask( which is what I did the second time trying it and it went much better!) I think it would be really good for a T zone area or spot treatment area.!

4th Time Trying!

I recently purchased and tried the Mud-mask, and I absolutely love it! I have genuinely noticed an improvement on the colour of my blackheads as well as the texture on my forehead! In only four uses! (about a month) It smells natural and refreshing, it feels amazing! I have acne prone skin and I have been using Cocoon's Products for just about a year now, and my skin has improved so much! The product goes on dark green and turns to a light green when it's dry, in about ten minutes. One time I left it on for far to long and my skin was a little red afterword's, so I defiantly recommend following the instructions if you have sensitive skin! My bad!

Face Restoration!

Oh my! What can I say?!?!? I just absolutely love when I take time to pamper myself with the Ancient Mud Mask. There is just no better way to feel refreshed and restore my face!

Must Have Product!

My boyfriend and I both love this mask! I have been using it for over 6 years now - it is intense the first few times you use it, but no other mask product makes my skin as glowy and fresh after use as this one. This is a staple product for your beauty shelf, as far as I'm concerned!

Ancient Mud Facial Mask

If you have acne prone skin like me, the Ancient Mud Facial Mask is a must have! I use it in two ways, as a weekly face mask, and as a double cleanser after using the Petal Purity Exfoliating Cleanser. This will erase your pores and get rid any gunk that's sitting underneath your skin. I hope that in the future the packaging is updated to a tube because the product moves around during shipping and it can be a tad scary if you're a first time buyer and don't know this. The results are beyond worth it! Will buy again in the future :)
