Today’s fast-paced lifestyle has flooded our lives with mass-produced materials and unmindful waste. Bathing and other relaxing activities have increasingly become an outlet to release the stress of our hectic lives. I am exploring a sustainable solution to throwaway culture through a system of customized refillable bath products. Consumers who value product experience are able to build a deeper emotional bond with product lines while maximizing packaging longevity and reducing environmental impacts.
ANEU is a unique new approach of personal body and hair care. It is a customizable and sustainable products line using exclusively precious ingredients from “nature’s pharmacy." ANEU challenges the form of the existing bathing products' easily thrown-away packages, and it offers a new daily bathing ritual, an experience that allows you to relax, pamper yourself by starting and ending your day anew.
It is a new form of bathing products and their packaging that is durable, reusable, sustainable, refillable and customizable while also involves a ritualistic experience.
