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.

Best exfoliating cleanser!

I absolutely love this product! It is definitely my go to exfoliating cleaner. It has great exfoliating power while still being super gentle on my sensitive skin. The smell is also lovely which is a bonus!

Great Stuff

I bought mine at an online pharmacy, here is that review: except I forgot to mention I ordered two more! Title: Great stuff (user bradleyyyz) Cleanses without that tight dry feeling, smells good enough to eat ( this doesn't mean you do or try), and just feels good to use a more natural product. I'd recommend to anyone.

Great for oily/combination skin

I love all Cocoon products because I know what is in them and not only are they safe, but also effective. Love this cleanser for my daily face wash.

I love the product itself but this is the second pump in a row that is clogged from the exfoliant.

Love the sweet orange exfoliant cleanser

I love the smell and feel of the product. It’s been great. I have had issues with the pump clogging due to the exfoliant beads. As a result, I have had to unwind the top.

Gentle and Nourishing

I love this exfoliating gel. I have sensetuve skin, and although the product uses orange extract, my skin is left feeling unbothered. It is very gentle, yet gets the job done. I have been using this product for a few years now and can't go bavk to any other. Highly recommend!

So gentle so soft

I just love this product. I’ve received several compliments about my skin since including it in my Cocoon Apothecary skin care routine! It’s fantastic.

Skin compliments are the best! We are thrilled this product is working so well for you! Keep it up, clearly it's working.

Love Love Love

This is a great cleanser. Especially for the summer months you feel so clean after but not stripped of natural oils. The jojoba beads that act as an exfoliant are perfect and great for every day use I don’t feel that my skin is over exfoliated or irritated in anyway.

So fresh and so clean (clean)

First of all...the SMELL of the sweet orange line is so fresh! I LOVE waking up to this cleanser. The exfoliants are just enough that you get a good scrub, but gentle enough for my sensitive skin. Have I mentioned the smell?!

Amazing cleanser for combo/oily skin

I just recently tried this product prior to it I was just using the regular sweet orange cleaning gel. I figured I would try this because of my combination skin. I do tend to get oily at the end of the day. Sometimes I wear makeup, or sunscreen so at the end of the day I like that really deep clean. My skin is sensitive and the beads don't irritate my skin at all. I absolutely love this cleanser the only down side is that it's such a small bottle so it doesn't last me very long.


Cocoon Apothecary

Hi Monika, thank you for sharing your experience with us. We do offer this exfoliating cleanser in a 250ml if you are looking for a larger size :) so happy you have been enjoying it

Fresh and Clean

This cleanser is perfect, especially for summer. It has a gentle but effective exfoliating effect. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and ready for my Rosey cheeks cream and oil. The smell of this cleanser is an added bonus but may be my favourite part. It’s so fresh!

I am obsessed with how gentle this is on my skin, but still exfoliates so well! Also the smell is so delicious!!

So refreshing!

I love the Sweet Orange Exfoliating Gel Cleanser! I have oily skin that is also prone to acne and breakouts. Previously, I was using the non exfoliating orange gel cleaner and while I did really like it, I do think the exfoliating version is better suited for my skin - it really helps clear up my breakouts! It doesn't feel like it's going to exfoliate well, though it honestly does. I've used rougher exfoliating cleansers that feel really gritty on your face and leave your skin kind of red for a bit after (for me at least) and this one does not feel like that at all. AND my skin feels soft and clear after, no more dead and rough skin patches!
