What is Airless Refill Technology?

At its core, Airless Refill Technology is a revolutionary approach to skincare packaging that ensures every drop of your cherished product remains potent and pristine. No longer will you have to contend with the degradation caused by air exposure or premature spoilage. 

Understanding Airless Refill Technology is the key to unlocking the secrets of its success. It's a game-changer that eliminates the pitfalls of traditional packaging by keeping your skincare treasures untouched by air until the very moment of use. Say goodbye to oxidation, contamination, and diminished effectiveness.

As we delve into this transformative concept, you'll gain a deeper understanding of how it operates, why it matters, and how it aligns perfectly with both your skincare needs and our planet's well-being. Welcome to a new era of beauty and sustainability!

What is Airless Refill Technology?

Why is air bad for skincare products and active ingredients?

Air can be detrimental to skincare products and active ingredients for several reasons:

  1. Oxidation: Exposure to air can lead to oxidation of the active ingredients in skincare products. Oxidation occurs when molecules in the product react with oxygen in the air. This can break down the active ingredients and render them less effective.
  1. Contamination: Air can introduce contaminants into skincare products. When containers are not properly sealed or when products are exposed to air, bacteria and other microorganisms can enter the product, leading to contamination.
  1. Decreased Shelf Life: Air can accelerate the degradation of skincare products and reduce their shelf life. Active ingredients that are meant to provide specific benefits to the skin may lose their effectiveness over time if they are not adequately protected from air exposure
  1. Texture and Consistency Changes: Exposure to air can alter the texture and consistency of skincare products. For example, creams and lotions may thicken or become clumpy when exposed to air for extended periods. 

To protect skincare products and active ingredients from the harmful effects of air, SKOON. has embarked on using environmentally-conscious packaging which maximises product effectiveness and sustainability.

Why are refillable skincare products better for you and the environment?

Refillable skincare products offer numerous benefits for both individuals and the environment. 

  1. Less Waste: Reduce, reuse and recycle - by reducing packaging, reusing the pump, and recycling everything once finished, refillable skincare products promote sustainability at every stage. When you’ve finished you can recycle everything!
  1. Environmental Impact: One of the primary advantages of refillable skincare products is their reduced environmental footprint. Traditional skincare products often come in single-use containers, contributing to plastic waste. Refillable options typically use larger, durable containers that can be refilled multiple times, significantly reducing the amount of plastic and packaging waste that ends up in landfills or oceans.
  1. Cost Savings: Refillable skincare products can be cost-effective in the long run. The cost of purchasing refills is often lower than buying entirely new products each time.
  1. Reduced Carbon Footprint: Refillable skincare products typically have a lower carbon footprint compared to single-use alternatives. By minimising the need for new packaging and reducing transportation costs associated with shipping full containers, refillable systems help lower greenhouse gas emissions.
  1. Promotion of Sustainable Practices: Supporting refillable skincare products encourages the beauty industry to adopt more sustainable practices. This demand can lead to greater innovation in eco-friendly packaging, reduced plastic use, and increased awareness of the importance of environmentally responsible choices.
  1. Less Exposure to Harmful Chemicals: Some single-use packaging materials may contain harmful chemicals that can leach into skincare products over time. Refillable containers are often designed to be safer, reducing the risk of exposure to potentially harmful substances.

In summary, refillable skincare products are more sustainable and cost-effective. By reducing waste, lowering costs, and promoting eco-friendly practices, these products offer a win-win solution for consumers and the planet alike.

Airless Refill Technology is a Groundbreaking Way to Preserve Active Ingredients

Our Airless Refill Technology safeguards potent active ingredients such as L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), Retinol (Vitamin A), essential oils, and plant extracts from air exposure, ensuring they remain effective and uncontaminated.

Moreover, it guarantees product longevity even after removing the lid. This innovative technology doesn't just offer top-notch protection but also emphasises sustainability and cost efficiency. Elevate your skincare regime with our airless pump bottles - the future of effective and environmentally-conscious beauty.

How Does Airless Technology Work?

Airless technology is a game-changing innovation in packaging that works through a simple yet highly effective mechanism. It involves a vacuum system that prevents air from entering the container, ensuring the product remains uncontaminated and its active ingredients stay potent until the very last drop.

Here's how it works:

  1. Vacuum Chamber: Inside the container, there is a vacuum chamber that houses the moisturiser.
  2. Airtight Dispenser: At the top of the container, there's an airtight dispenser with a pump. This dispenser is sealed off from the vacuum chamber.
  3. Product Dispensing: When you press the pump, it creates a vacuum in the chamber, causing the walls of the vacuum chamber to collapse inward.
  4. Product Extraction: As the chamber contracts, it pushes the product up towards the dispenser's opening.
  5. No Air Contact: Crucially, the product is dispensed without coming into contact with air. This is a significant advantage because many skincare products, especially those containing sensitive ingredients like vitamins or antioxidants, can degrade when exposed to oxygen.
  6. Precise Dosage: Airless dispensers provide precise dosage control, so you get the exact amount you need without any wastage.

Airless technology ensures that your skincare products are not only more effective but also remain uncontaminated and fresh throughout their use, from the first drop to the last. It's a revolutionary approach that enhances both product quality and sustainability.

The Importance of Priming Your Airless Dispenser

Priming your airless dispenser cannot be overstated in ensuring the optimal performance of your skincare products. While airless technology offers numerous benefits, initiating the priming process is a vital step in ensuring the efficient and flawless dispensing of your cherished skincare formulations.

Priming eliminates any air gaps within the dispenser and prepares it to deliver your skincare with precision. It's a small but crucial step to ensure that every pump provides the full benefits of your product, maintaining its effectiveness from the first application to the last.

How to Prime Your Airless Dispenser

To ensure optimal performance and get the most out of your product, follow these simple steps to prime the bottle before its first use:

  1. Tap the Base: With the cap removed, gently tap the base of the bottle on a flat surface. This helps to dislodge any air bubbles that may be trapped in the pump system.
  2. Pump Several Times: Press down on the pump head multiple times to initiate the flow of product. You may need to pump the dispenser anywhere from 10 to 20 times until the product is dispensed.
  3. Try the 'Secret Touch': For an extra boost in priming, here's a trick to consider turn the product upside down and gently tap it on the pump's side. Do this with the cap still on. This technique can help release any stubborn air bubbles and enhance the priming process.
  4. Observe Product Dispensing: As you pump, you'll notice that the product begins to emerge from the nozzle. It's normal for the initial pumps to take a bit of effort due to the airless system's design.
  5. Enjoy Your Product: Once you see a consistent flow of product, your airless bottle is now primed and ready for use! Each subsequent pump will dispense your product effortlessly and without air exposure


If your airless dispenser ever seems to stop working, don't fret—simply repeat the priming process to reactivate the pump system. It's a quick and easy step that ensures every pump delivers the skincare goodness you expect.
